BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) can be used for more than just cosmetic purposes. In fact, it can play a key role in relieving health issues such as:
• Chronic headaches and migraines
• Teeth clenching or grinding
• TMJ/TMD disorders
• Excessive sweating
A BOTOX treatment can be done in one, easy visit to our office. There are no incisions required and the BOTOX is injected directly into the muscles of the jaws, neck or near the ears. We can use a topical anesthetic for your comfort and you should be able to resume your regular activities right away.
Once injected, the BOTOX works by blocking the pains signals between the nerves and muscles and will take about one day to take effect. It is a temporary solution and you will need to return to our office to repeat the treatment every three to four months. If you would like more information and want to see if this treatment can enhance your health, call our office for your appointment with our dentists.
