Botox is a biocompatible chemical agent used in the treatment of various dental and cosmetic issues. As dentists, we not only diagnose and treat the oral tissues but also look into the comprehensive treatment of the facial and surrounding muscles. The procedures can either be intended to improve the facial appearance or the functionality of the mouth.
