BOTOX® ADVANCED TREATMENT IS HERE!
Botox® Advanced Migraine, TMJ, Excessive Sweating, and Acne Treatments.
Botox® Advanced Migraine Treatment
Make painful, chronic migraines a thing of the past! Our Advanced Migraine Treatment relieves the constant, everyday pain of migraine. It’s safe, fast and long-lasting.
What can I expect from Botox® Advanced Migraine Treatments?
We’ll treat the Master Muscle associated with migraine with the standard, recommended amount of Botox®. The amount used is adjusted during treatment according to the muscle strength and degree or severity of the condition being treated.
The Master Muscle is really a group of muscles, consisting of the jaw, lower neck, temple area and the back of the neck. (These are the same areas associated with TMJ.) Small injections are made to the edge of the jaw near the ear, the lower neck, temple, and base of the back of the head. Results occur within 5 days. One treatment last up to 4 months! After one year (about 2-3 treatments), you can expect to be migraine-free for 6 months at a time.
Did you know Botox® is also used to treat TMJ?
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJD or TMJ) are common yet difficult to diagnose and treat. The severity of TMJ symptoms are often related to increased stress. If you are under a lot of stress, you may grind your teeth, experience painful earaches, and extreme tightening of the jaw (lockjaw). Botox® is usually associated with reducing wrinkles and facial lines. But Botox® injections can be effective in reducing jaw pain, headaches, earaches and tension that result from TMJ. Relief is fast and long-lasting.
What can I expect from Botox® Advanced TMJ Treatments?
Nighttime grinding and clenching associated with TMJ can wear down your teeth, exposing them to decay, loosening, and gum disease. Botox® Advanced TMJ Treatment relaxes the muscles that create the tension in your neck and jaw, relieving the teeth grinding and the destructive pressure that comes with it. Speaking, swallowing and biting are left unaffected after injections are delivered. Another advantage of using Botox®Advanced Treatment for TMJ is that it can help prevent serious dental problems in the future.
Eliminate excessive sweating with Botox!
No more embarrassing stains or situations! Stay cool, calm and relaxed. Wear your favorite clothes! Anytime, anywhere. Botox® eliminates excessive sweating, almost instantly. Results are long lasting.
Excessive sweating can occur from hormonal changes, glandular problems or it can be hereditary. The problem area – the underarm, for example – is dusted with a special powder that turns black as you begin to perspire. Botox® is injected only to those specific areas so it is extremely targeted. Sweating is eliminated in 1 to 2 days.
Isn’t it bad for your health to not sweat?
Your body needs to keep cool through perspiring. However, your body perspires all over and continues to perspire adequately, even if you stop underarm sweating.
Is Botox® safe?
In the hands of a Certified Botox® provider, yes. Scientists discovered years ago that Botox® was safe when administered in small, diluted amounts. Botox® has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use, TMJ relief and relief from chronic migraines in adults. The FDA describes the chronic migraine patient as “patients who have a history of migraine and suffer from headaches on 15 or more days per month with headaches lasting four hours a day or longer.” Botox® has not proved effective in the relief of occasional migraine or other types of headache.

Botox® Cosmetics now available!
Did you know that less than one-quarter of one percent of cosmetic dentists are accredited in Cosmetic Dentistry? NCD is a leader in the field. Our Cosmetic Team, headed by Dr. Paul Schoenbeck, is comprised of qualified members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. They are committed to extensive training; ongoing education to keep abreast of technological advancements and research; and creating artistic, aesthetically pleasing and durable work that enhances your emotional outlook as well as your physical smile.
Dr. Schoenbeck has been trained and certified by the Pacific Training Institute for Facial Esthetics to administer Botox® therapy. Dr. Schoenbeck’s medical training, expertise in Cosmetic Dentistry and familiarity with the anatomy of the face and neck made providing Botox injections a practical and natural solution for patients who wanted their face to match their new smiles – youthful, fresh, beautiful. NCD is now one of only approximately 16% of dentists in the U.S. who offer this treatment for both cosmetic and TMJ/Migraine therapy. Dr. Schoenbeck is dedicated to bringing the North Country the best, most advanced dentistry and non-invasive cosmetic treatments to enhance dental restorations and other cosmetic dental work.

Why is NCD offering Botox®?
Many of our patients have asked about Botox® therapy. They wanted extended cosmetic services to enhance their new smiles. And it made perfect sense. As a Doctor of Dental Medicine, Dr. Schoenbeck has been specially trained and works every day with the anatomy of the face and neck. Who better to trust than your dentist? In fact, dentists are more focused on the face and neck areas and regularly give more injections on a daily basis than other medical doctors. Practice makes perfect! You can be sure your experience will be comfortable and safe.
Another good reason to get Botox® services at NCD is that it’s very discreet! Walking out of a Med Spa can be a sure give-away, especially when you start looking younger! We all go to the dentist. So while you’re having your dental work done, you can have a little “other” cosmetic enhancement and no one will be the wiser. In fact, if you are considering cosmetic dentistry, Botox® treatments are recommended before you have the dental work done. Why? Using Botox® allows the dentist to perfect your smile by precisely placing your lip line with your teeth to give you the best smile.
Does Botox® work?
We all age. And as we do, we get wrinkles. A lifetime of frowning, laughing, just plain living causes wrinkles and expression lines to multiply and deepen. You end up looking tired, sad, worn out, or angry. In fact, you may feel ten years younger than the way you look! Botox® is a purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles. Botox® helps minimize and reduce age-related concerns like
• “the elevens” (frown lines)
• crow’s feet
• forehead lines
• neck lines
• nasolabial folds
We can even correct a crooked smile or a smile that shows too much gum line! Your appearance will remain perfectly natural and you will always look like you.
Are the treatments uncomfortable?
Botox® injections are quick and produce very little discomfort. Botox® is injected with an extremely fine needle. Injections are so quick, most people say they hardly feel them at all. Also, you probably won’t need a pain reliever after treatment but if you do, a simple over-the-counter product will work just fine. Of course, discomfort levels during treatment vary from person to person. Some people say they barely notice the injections. Others say it feels like a slight pin prick. The particular area of the face being treated will make a difference, too. Typically, treating the forehead (furrows and worry lines) and crow’s feet are reported to be the easiest. No matter where your particular “area of concern” is, Dr. Schoenbeck is known to be gentle and caring and will make sure you are at your most comfortable at all times.
I’ve heard Botox® “freezes” your face. Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Many people have heard about Botox® “freezing” the face so you are expressionless. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Botox is a purified protein that relaxes wrinkle causing muscles. In the hands of a trained and certified professional like Dr. Schoenbeck, Botox® is safe. You will still be able to frown, smile, laugh, or look surprised. Just without the wrinkles and creases. Again, Botox® is a purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles.When injected into areas such as frown lines, it relaxes the muscles just enough to create a smoother appearance. You will still look like you, only fresher, more rested, younger looking.
How long does it take to see the results?
Initial results are typically seen in two to three days. Full results are seen in approximately two weeks. Individual results may vary.
What Botox® won’t do
Botox® relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles. This allows wrinkles and expression lines to smooth out. The result can take years off your appearance. However, Botox® cannot tighten loose skin or plump up the skin. Some people experience a tightened appearance to the upper eyelids with Botox® but this is due to brow muscles relaxing rather than truly tightening the skin. There are cosmetic fillers and laser treatments that accomplish this and some people use them in conjunction with Botox® treatments to get the overall look they want. See your dermatologist for more information on these products and treatments.
Botox® Cosmetics and Botox® Advanced Treatments are available at both our Gorham and our North Conway offices.
