Why Use Botox to Treat Dental Issues?

Because it works! And it provides patients who experience certain dental conditions with the temporary relief and comfort they need.

BOTOX® treatments are not just for fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet anymore. Recently, BOTOX® treatments have proven to have therapeutic benefits including treatment of TMJ pain and discomfort, chronic migraine and headaches, jaw recontouring, gummy smile correction and many other dental problems.

How Does It Work?

BOTOX® is a neurotoxin that works at the neuromuscular junction, where the nerve endings meet the muscle cells. Here, it prevents the nerve from causing muscle contraction, overuse and spasm of the muscle it was injected in, thus it temporarily relaxes the muscle and reduces tension.

Just as BOTOX® cosmetic treatment temporarily relaxes muscles to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, the injections can relax the muscles of the jaw that are responsible for clenching and grinding and help reduce TMJ symptoms. One side benefit of this treatment is slenderizing of the jaw line and softening of the contour of the face, which a lot of patients find attractive.

Other Botox Applications

In addition, BOTOX® has been successfully used for treating hyperactive and hypermobile upper lip that reveals excessive gum display during smiling. When injected, BOTOX® will relax the muscles of the upper lip and reduce lip mobility to reveal a more pleasing smile. BOTOX® provides minimally invasive and fast acting solution for symptoms that might otherwise require extensive treatment or even surgery.

Perhaps, none of these medical conditions apply to you, but you are interested in turning the clock back for few years BOTOX® Cosmetics is a simple, safe and FDA approved secret weapon to looking and feeling younger.
