Daniel M. Henricksen, DDS, MS uses undiluted Xeomin® brand botulinum toxin for all injections. Xeomin® is the purest form of botulinum toxin A available on the market today. If you have had botox in the past you will find Dr. Henricksen to give the most comfortable injections you have ever had.

Unsurpassed comfort and care

You might be surprised to find out that dentists can and regularly do botox in their practice. As it turns out, dentists are the most qualified medical professionals for the job. Most botox injections today are given by medical estheticians, nurse practitioners or physicians assistants who have had little to no specialty training of the anatomy or physiology of the face. Dentists not only have this training in addition to extensive training on fascial esthetics and balance and they give more daily injections than any other medical profession in the US. Dr. Henricksen has been trained to use botulinum toxin to relieve headaches, musculoskeletal related jaw pain, trigger points in the face head and neck as well balance facial esthetics to compliment and enhance your smile.

Musculoskeletal

Patients with Temporal Mandibular Joint Disorders can often benefit from Botox treatment. By calming hyperactive muscles involved in mastication, in most cases pain can be reduced or eliminated. Bruxism and clenching can also be minimized with Botox injections by reducing the force of the muscular contractions involved. It can make a useful adjunct therapy to night appliances.

Headache & Trigger Point

Botox is FDA approved for use in Chronic Migraine sufferers over 18 and may be covered by your insurance. Botox can also be used to treat trigger points that can cause oral-fascial pain by blocking nerve transmission. Individuals who have chronic pain in their teeth with no apparent reason may find relief with trigger point therapy.
  
  

Wrinkle Reduction

The most commonly recognized use of botulinum toxin is in the reduction or elimination of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is FDA approved for the reduction of lines between the brows and is effective at reducing lines around the eyes, forehead, nose and lips. Effects commonly last between 3 and 6 months, or even longer with repeated use.
