When you think of Botox®, the first thing to come to your mind may not be migraine relief, TMJ treatment or a solution for bruxism, but that’s exactly why we offer Botox® therapy to our patients. While it may sound unconventional, dentists who offer Botox® injections for dental and facial pain have helped many of their patients find relief.
Why Botox® Injections for Dental and Facial Pain?
Botox® injections for dental and facial pain can help relax the facial muscles to provide simple and effective relief from chronic pain. Relaxing the facial muscles can greatly reduce muscle contractions that cause migraines and other types of facial pain.
What Are the Advantages of using Botox® Therapy?
The advantages of using Botox® therapy is that it is relatively inexpensive when compared to alternative invasive treatment or surgeries, and absolutely painless. It’s a quick in-and-out visit or can be combined with your regular dental visit. While treatments typically need to be repeated every three to four months, the upside is that side effects are almost unheard of due to the temporary nature of the treatment. As a bonus, because Botox® injections for dental and facial pain relief use the same sites as cosmetic Botox® therapy, you’ll benefit from disappearing wrinkles, adding youth to your already beautiful smile!
Choose a Reputable Dentist with Botox® Certification
Effects of Botox® can last up to three to four months, which is why it’s important to choose a reputable dentist who spent the time to get their certification. Botox® Certification requires a minimum of 16 hours of hands-on training and dentists who complete the training successfully receive a certificate for completion.
