Botox is becoming more popular in the dental field. It is used both cosmetically and as a tool to improve the symptoms of neuromuscular disorders. Botox can be used for the treatment of TMJ pain, tension headaches, clenching and grinding of teeth, migraines and more. Botox therapy can be very beneficial as it can block the nerve signals that control muscle movement. This softens the skin around the injection and does not allow the muscle to contract which creates pain relief for the patient. Results can last up to 3 months.
It is also a perfect way to add the “finishing touch” to your smile makeover by giving you a smoother and more youthful frame around your teeth. We also use Botox to treat fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead and around the eyes as well!
