Botox to Crow's feet and Forehead

Botox is a great treatment to the wrinkles around the upper face including the eyes and forehead.  The Botox you had injected to the upper face should have no effect on the teeth at all.

Any sort of issues you are experiencing with your teeth are unrelated to Botox injections you received in your forehead.

Botox effect on teeth, jaw

+1
  • Botox injected into the forehead and crows' feet should not affect the teeth and jaw.
  • That said, Botox has a tiny amount of protein.
  • An immune response to the protein could have odd effects -
  • If concerned, return to the physician who did the treatment and discuss the problem. Best wishes.

Botox and teeth

There should be no relationship between having Botox injected in the forehead and crows feet and anything having to do with teeth. In fact, Botox should not effect teeth no matter where it is injected in face

Can Botox treatment affect teeth or jaw?

Botox injected into the forehead or crow's feet would have no ability to affect the teeth or jaw. So no, these two things are unrelated.
