Dental Botox

Mar 2 • 1 minute read

Botox has a variety of uses in dentistry.  Below are some of the most common uses:

  • Chronic facial pain: injections in the region of discomfort can prevent transmission of pain signals thus lessening the pain response
  • TMJ discomfort: injections into the muscles that contribute to grinding and clenching can cause them to relax thus putting less stress on the jaw joint
  • Tension headaches: injections into the muscles that contract and cause pain can lessen headache discomfort
  • Esthetics: injections around the mouth can improve smile lines

Scheduling a consult can determine the best sites of injections based on each individual's needs/desires.
