When you think of BOTOX, you probably don’t think about visiting your dentist. However, here at Carlson Dental Group, we’re equipped to help you achieve a wrinkle-free smile or a healthier, more comfortable jaw with the help of BOTOX in Jacksonville. This popular treatment can be used cosmetically to erase wrinkles from your face, or it can be used as a TMJ therapy to help relieve and treat TMJ disorder. Our experienced team is ready and able to do both right here in our office! To discover if BOTOX is right for you, give us a call today to schedule your consultation.
