Do you suffer from pain related to TMJ disorder, teeth grinding or clenching? Do you want to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles that have developed over the years? If so, you may be a candidate for BOTOX® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) Dental Therapeutic injections administered by a BOTOX® certified Doctor at Boiano Dental.
Though BOTOX® injections are best known for their cosmetic applications, BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic can relieve painful conditions triggered by the muscles of the jaw. As a therapeutic tool, BOTOX® is an integral part of dental implant surgery, TMJ treatment, and ensures the success of other dental services we offer.
BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic
Long before BOTOX® cosmetic injections were used to beautify the face, they were used for medical purposes. Spastic muscles or muscles that clench involuntarily can cause extreme discomfort and embarrassment. BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic - delivered directly to problematic muscles via injections - can relieve facial tics, involuntary teeth clenching and other dental and facial related medical problems. Patients will typically get three to four months of relief after just one treatment.
A BOTOX® certified Doctor at Boiano Dental offer BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic injections to help patients overcome dental challenges related to muscle contraction. BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic is helpful in treating TMJ disorder as well as ensuring the success of new dental restorations and other dental surgical procedures.
Utility in Treating TMJ Disorder, Teeth Grinding, and Teeth Clenching
TMJ disorder, teeth grinding (bruxism), and teeth clenching can all cause extreme pain and disrupt daily life. Fortunately, all of these problems can be treated with BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic, which relaxes the muscles that control the jaw (temporomandibular) joint. In the past, traditional treatments such as dental splints or night guards were used to treat these conditions. However, BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic injections deliver targeted treatment to the source of the problem and allow you to enjoy your life free from pain.
Utility in Dental Implant Surgery
Because BOTOX® injections relax the muscles surrounding the jaw joint, targeted injections are useful in reducing the stress placed on new dental implants. Treatment with BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic is an especially important part of the one-day implant process, in which the implant or implants are placed in just one appointment. Reducing the stress put on a new dental implant helps it become successfully integrated into your jaw bone, so you can count on many years of beautiful, worry-free smiles.
At our practice, patient comfort, cleanliness, and professionalism are paramount considerations. Though BOTOX® Cosmetic and BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic are used to accomplish very different goals, you can be assured that you will achieve a superior result whether you undergo treatment for aesthetic reasons or to relieve muscle-related problems.
