Botox Treatment in Dentistry
Many people do not think of Botox when visiting the dentist but Botox treatment has become an increasingly popular option at many dental practices for providing jaw pain relief and other therapeutic benefits. If you are suffering from jaw pain because of TMJ or TMD, or have any other type of muscle pain around the neck and jaw, treatment with Botox will stop muscle contractions that are causing pain in these areas.
How Botox Works
Botox is a purified protein that can be injected into the muscles to stop nerve transmission. It is commonly used to stop muscle contractions around the face that cause wrinkles and fine lines. However, it also has many off label uses, including providing relief from jaw pain and adjusting the lip line.
