The use of Botox in dentistry is a newer technique providing an alternative option to relieve teeth-grinding symptoms including TMJ headaches and facial pain. Associated Dentists is certified by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) in performing Botox treatments for patients in dental applications. Each Botox treatment is personalized to the patient’s needs.
Botox has been known to relieve chronic and common tension-type headaches also known as TTH. It has also been proven to reduce teeth clenching and grinding which can cause the tooth to wear down, TMJD, muscular pain, joint locking and noise. Using Botox treatments patients who have TMJ dislocation have seen reduced episodes of discomfort.
In addition to dental applications, Associated Dentists can perform facial Botox to reduce wrinkles.
