Free BOTOX® Consultation
Court Street Smiles is proud to serve our patients with the most innovative and advanced procedures in dentistry, including the utilization of Botox. Botox is typically used to alleviate fine lines and wrinkles. Many people simply don’t realize the vast array of services and functions it can provide. Botox can be used in dentistry to reduce the effects of teeth grinding, also known as bruxism.
What Is Botox®?
Botox is a purified protein commonly used as a cosmetic treatment to reduce facial wrinkles. It is most commonly used to alleviate horizontal forehead lines seen when one raises the eyebrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows when one frowns, and crow’s feet around the eyes when one smiles. However, Botox is capable of doing much more than just enhancing appearance, including its application to dentistry! In our office, we implement its usage for both the medical and cosmetic interests of our patients.
Benefits Of Botox® In Dentistry
In our practice, we may implement Botox into our patient’s treatment if we notice issues that affect the muscles or tissues within the oral structure. This may include the following conditions:.
- Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)
- Jaw Clenching
- Teeth Grinding
Bruxism can cause neck pain, stiffness in the jaw, headaches, and migraines. As Botox relaxes the muscles, frequent teeth grinders may find that their jaw feels less tense, and their headaches are alleviated. These are just a few examples of how Botox can be used to change the lives of our patients. We invite those who are interested in learning more about Botox to call our office today! We look forward to assisting you.
