While Botox® is commonly associated with cosmetic procedures and reducing the presence of fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance, it also offers multiple therapeutic benefits. Because Botox blocks nerve signals to the muscles, it supports relaxation and the relief of tension.
At the office of Wonderful Smiles Dental, we provide precise and gentle care, including therapeutic treatment with Botox to address the following conditions:
- Alleviating the discomfort of headaches and migraines
- Relieving painful TMJ symptoms related to clenching and grinding the teeth
- Decreasing head and neck muscle tension
- Reducing the appearance of "gummy" smiles
Administered in small therapeutic doses into the affected areas, Botox produces a statistically significant reduction of pain and improved function. As therapeutic benefits last several months, we may recommend periodic injections to maintain optimal results and the ongoing relief of symptoms.
At Wonderful Smiles Dental, our patients' oral health and overall well-being are our top priorities. To learn more about the therapeutic benefits of Botox, and the many services we provide, give us a call today.
