As an oral surgeon, your oral surgery specialist at New York Oral, Maxillofacial, and Implant Surgery performs a variety of surgical procedures in order to correct injuries, defects, and diseases to the jaws, face, and tissues of the oral region.
A dermal filler is a non-invasive alternative to other procedures such as cosmetic surgery. During the procedure, we will inject the dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, Restylane, or Radiesse, right underneath the skin to plump up deep lines in your face. By the end of your treatment, these lines should be much less noticeable or virtually disappear.

Botox, or Botulinum Toxin, is often used for its anti-aging properties. An injection will temporarily disable the muscles in the face by blocking the nerves responsible for contractions. Targeting these muscles can temporarily eliminate wrinkles.
The same basic concept applies to Botox treatment for the TMJ. Botox can alleviate jaw tension by blocking the nerves that control the muscles of your TMJ.
