Dental Procedures with Botox Treatments
Botox treatments are used as an alternative treatment for temporo-mandibular joint disorders (TMD) and associated jaw tension and pain. TMJ refers to the temporo-mandibular joint. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, Botox relieves TMD and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches and migraines resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, they can even minimize lock jaw. These treatments can also help prevent the excessive grinding that creates worn teeth and damaged gums.
Cosmetic Botox Procedures
Cosmetic Botox procedures are increasingly being used for cosmetic purposes by practitioners. A major benefit is that it will erase or minimize wrinkles in most patients. These treatments are quick, effective, and non-surgical.
