BOTOX treatments can be used both cosmetically and therapeutically in dentistry to help relax muscles in the face and jaw.

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX, or Botulinum Toxin, is a purified protein that has both cosmetic and therapeutic applications. When injected into the facial muscles, it releases neurotoxins, which prevent the muscles from contracting and helps them to relax.

Cosmetic Applications

BOTOX is commonly used to reduce or eliminate facial wrinkles. Injections are administered to temporarily relax a patient’s muscles creating a smoother, younger look.

Therapeutic Applications

The ability of BOTOX to relax face muscles can also help patients struggling with dental issues, including:

  • To relieve jaw and facial muscle pain caused by TMD/TMJ
  • To relieve jaw and facial muscle pain caused by grinding or clenching teeth
  • To restrain muscle movement and keep teeth from relapsing in orthodontic treatment
  • To fix irregular muscle contractions when adjusting to new dentures
