Thanks for your response re: the botox for gum exposure. When you say 2 injections in 2 spots, does that mean 4 injections total in each spot with a total of 8? Also about how much should this cost?

no, total is 2 injections.
total cost should be less than $100
effect should last for 3 months

Must be repeated every 3 months?  October 26, 2011 8:49 PM

Thanks again for your feedback. I appreciate these answers from a professionals perspective. Just wondering are you a doctor that has experience in performing this particular type of botox or you are speaking from knowledge based on research and education? Regardless I find the info very valuable. Thank you!
