BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic
Initially, BOTOX® injections were developed not as something to enhance appearance but for medical uses. In dentistry, BOTOX® injections are used to resolve issues like teeth clenching and other dental or facial problems. In a condition when your facial muscles tighten involuntarily, or you have muscle spasms, then it can cause extreme discomfort. But with this therapeutic injection, you can get the relief you are seeking for.
In our practice, we use it to resolve issues related to facial muscles, TMJ or to get a more successful outcome from various surgical procedures and dental restorations. BOTOX® injections will help relax the muscles in the face that control the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) or jaw joint. It is also very important to listen to your dentist regarding follow-up care instructions and get the doses of injections at the right time.
