First Time Getting Botox? Here’s What to Expect

Botox has gained significant traction over the past few years as a trusted and effective cosmetic treatment. While many associate this procedure with dermatology clinics and beauty spas, the realm of dental medicine has not been left behind. Dr. Mitzi Morris, a renowned dentist in Roswell, seamlessly integrates the benefits of Botox with her suite of cosmetic dental services. If you’re considering Botox for the first time, here’s a comprehensive guide on what to anticipate.

Botox in a Dental Setting: Why It’s Unique

At first glance, a dental office might seem an unlikely place for a Botox treatment. However, dentists possess an intricate understanding of facial anatomy, especially the muscles of mastication (chewing muscles) and facial expression. Dr. Mitzi Morris leverages this knowledge to offer Botox injections that complement her dental treatments, ensuring harmonious results both within and outside the mouth.

Pre-Treatment Consultation

Before diving into the procedure, Dr. Morris will hold a thorough consultation. This is your opportunity to discuss your aesthetic goals, ask questions, and express any concerns. Based on your needs, a personalized treatment plan will be devised.

The Procedure: Quick and Minimally Invasive

The actual Botox treatment is relatively swift. After cleaning the targeted area, Dr. Morris will administer a series of tiny injections. The precision and expertise she brings from her dental background ensure that the process is as comfortable as possible. Most patients describe the sensation as a slight pinch, and the entire procedure typically takes no more than 10-15 minutes.

Post-Treatment: Minimal Downtime

One of the advantages of Botox is the minimal downtime post-treatment. While there might be some redness or slight swelling at the injection sites, these generally subside within a few hours. Dr. Morris will provide you with specific aftercare guidelines, but most patients can resume their regular activities immediately.

Seeing Results and Longevity

You can expect to see initial results within 3-5 days post-treatment. However, the full effect typically manifests within two weeks. The outcomes can last anywhere from three to six months, depending on individual factors. Regular follow-up treatments can help maintain your rejuvenated appearance.

Book Your Botox at Your Next Dental Visit

Botox, when administered by a skilled professional like Dr. Mitzi Morris, can yield refreshing and natural-looking results. By opting for Botox in a dental setting, you benefit from a practitioner who understands facial aesthetics on a profound level. Whether you’re looking to enhance your smile with cosmetic dentistry, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, or both, Dr. Morris stands ready to guide you towards your desired outcome. Your journey to a more radiant you is just an appointment away.

Based on 44 reviews

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

    Christopher P
  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

    David G
  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
