Wait, Botox from a Dentist?
Do you suffer from frequent tension headaches or migraines? If so, you may be able to benefit from Botox treatment at our office. You may not be aware, but many people suffer from headaches as a result of bruxism which is excessive teeth grinding and clenching. The stress and strain on the jaw and facial muscles can result in headaches with significant pain affecting your daily activities.
So how can Botox help?
Botox is commonly known as a treatment for removing wrinkles and fine lines on a face by controlling muscle contractions. However, as facial pains or headaches caused by TMD are also muscle related, Botox can also be a wonderful solution for relieving such cases. Dr. Kim can identify the specific areas around the face where the Botox will need to be applied based on each patient’s specific problems/symptoms. Once applied, the Botox will work to loosen the muscles thereby reducing or eliminating tensions caused by TMJ malfunctioning. One thing to note is that Botox cannot provide permanent relief and will last three to six months or so. Thus, many people revisit to obtain continued relief.
Here are several reasons to check out a dentist’s office (Botox certified) for a Botox application:
1. Dentists are very experienced with injections (giving 20 to 30 injections every day)
2. Dentists know the facial anatomy better than most doctors
3. This is a service requested by many dental patients
4. Convenience: You visit your dentist every three to six months anyway. So, it is the perfect time to have your Botox touch up!
