BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic
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® injections administered by Dr. Oslund, who is BOTOX® certified.
Though BOTOX® injections are best known for their cosmetic applications, BOTOX® can also 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.
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®, delivered directly to the 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.
We offer BOTOX® injections to help patients overcome dental challenges related to muscle contraction. BOTOX® 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®, which relaxes muscles that control the jaw (temporo-mandibular) joint. In the past, traditional treatments such as dental splints or night guards were used to treat these conditions. However, BOTOX® delivers targeted treatment to the source of the problem and allows you to enjoy your life free from pain.
At Lake Nona Dental Group, you can rest assured that you will achieve a superior result whether you undergo treatment for aesthetic reasons or to relieve muscle-related problems. Call to set up a free consultation to learn more.
