Common Uses of Botox in Dental Treatments

Our Dentists were trained by the AAFE to use Botox to assist patients with the following:

  • Patients dealing with Temporomandibular Joint Disorder can benefit from Botox injections. TMJ disorders can cause severe pain from hyperactivity of the muscles and treatment options have been limited in the past. Botox can simply relax these muscles and dental professionals can offer quick and efficient pain relief.
  • Bruxism can also be minimized with Botox treatments by reducing the force of the muscular contractions involved. These injections can make a useful adjunct therapy to night guard appliances.
