Botox For Dental and Facial Pain Treatment
A growing number of dentists are now providing botulinum toxin (BOTOX) treatment for their patients for both oral and maxillofacial cosmetic and therapeutic use.
BOTOX injections are used for treatment of temporomandibular joint disorder which is often associated with the muscle pain that can spread to the neck, shoulders or lead to frequent headaches. When used in combination with a bite guard or a splint, BOTOX injections significantly reduce painful symptoms.
BOTOX treatments can also be used to enhance cosmetic dental procedures. The patients can now achieve a more youthful appearance along with dental treatment.
The results of BOTOX treatment typically last three to six months, and your new look can be easily maintained with follow-up treatments.
