Botox & Fillers in Dawsonville, GA

What are Botox & Dermal Fillers?

Both Botox and dermal fillers are treatments administered through injections, and are most commonly used to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, but they do so in very different ways.

Botox uses botulinum toxin that paralyzes targeted muscle groups, to help reduce the appearance of smile lines, crows feet, and other wrinkles. Dermal fillers work by injecting a gel-like substance underneath the skin, filling in and plumping up areas like the lips and cheeks.

In addition to its cosmetic uses, Botox is a powerful treatment from our Dawsonville office that can also be used to effectively alleviate symptoms of TMJ disorders, as well as migraines and myofascial pain. Call (706) 703-4323 today to schedule an appointment with our Dawsonville oral surgeon.

How It Works: The Botox & Filler Process



During your consultation, we’ll discuss your personal smile goals, and discuss how Botox, dermal fillers, or a combination of the two may be able to help you achieve your unique vision. Additionally, if you’re experiencing jaw pain, we’ll find out if Botox can help relieve your discomfort.


Treatment Plan

Once we’ve decided on what treatment is best for your unique situation, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that covers the initial set of injections, as well as any follow-up appointments. Botox treatment generally lasts between 3-6 months, while dermal fillers can last much longer depending on the type of filler that is used.


The procedure is similar for both Botox and dermal fillers. After cleaning and sanitizing the treatment site, a thin needle is used to inject the materials into the target areas. You and your Dawsonville doctor will decide if you require any numbing for the procedure.

What Can Botox & Fillers Be Used For?

Bruxism is the unconscious grinding and clenching of your teeth and jaw, especially during sleep. It can lead to many uncomfortable symptoms, including headaches, pain, and even damage to the teeth. Botox can help relieve these symptoms by immobilizing the contracting muscles that cause excessive teeth grinding and clenching.

TMJ Disorders

TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) disorders involve the muscles, joints, and nerves of the jaw, and are linked to chronic facial pain. Botox can help relax these muscles, so the parts of your jaw work together in harmony and alleviate your pain.

Myofascial Pain

Myofascial pain describes muscle pain that is caused by repetitive use or strain of, or injury to, muscles, ligaments, or tendons. Patients with Myofascial pain often experience “trigger points,” or specific muscles that are extra tender and cause additional pain to the rest of the region when moved or touched. Botox can help ease this discomfort by targeting the trigger points and paralyzing specific muscles to alleviate tension and pain.


If you experience chronic migraines, with 15 or more headache days a month, Botox may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Botox is injected into muscle fibers, and enters the nerve endings to block the release of pain-transmitting chemicals to prevent migraines before they start. Botox prevents migraine headaches before they start, but takes time to work.

Are Botox results instant? What about dermal fillers?

Botox results are not instant. Although you may notice some change right away, (especially if it’s your first treatment), and a little bit more after 4-6 days, most patients see and feel the complete results of Botox injections after 10-14 days. Similarly, dermal fillers generally take about 2 weeks to take their full effect.

How long does Botox last? What about dermal fillers?

Botox can usually last anywhere from 3-6 months before requiring another round of injections. Fillers have the potential to last much longer, anywhere from 6 months all the way to 5 years, depending on the type of filler that is used. Although they can last quite a while, the results are still not permanent, and will require follow up appointments at our Dawsonville office and additional injections to maintain their effectiveness.

Will Botox help my TMJ disorder?

Botox has been shown to be effective in relieving patients of pain associated with Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders. Although the direct cause of TMJ disorders can be hard to pinpoint, the symptoms often include pain or tenderness in the jaw or around the ear, headaches, pain while chewing, and even lockjaw in more extreme cases. Botox targets the TMJ muscles, causing them to stop contracting and relax, which often allows the whole TMJ system to realign and work in harmony, relieving you of your TMJ-related pain.

Why should I get Botox & Filler treatments from my dentist?

Dentists are experts at more than just teeth. Not only do they have extensive knowledge of the face and jaw, but Botox and dermal fillers can often complement many different dental treatments and procedures. For patients with TMJ disorders or bruxism, Botox may be used in conjunction with a night guard to minimize pain and the effects of jaw clenching and teeth grinding. Botox can even be used to help patients’ mouths adjust to a new set of dentures!
