BOTOX® at a Dentist Office?
You may be wondering, “at a dentist office?” If you think about it, dentists probably have more experience and training on the injections in these areas than any other healthcare professionals. Dentists are specialized in the oral and maxillofacial areas (the face from chin to forehead) and dentists treat these areas every single day! So how do BOTOX® certified dentists use BOTOX® in their treatments? BOTOX® which received its first FDA approval in 1989 can now be used to treat headaches, facial pains, and/or migraines stemmed from bruxism, a medical term for unconscious teeth grinding and clenching, while awake or asleep.
As to how BOTOX® can help with teeth grinding; small doses of BOTOX® are injected into the masseter muscle (the muscle that moves the jaw) which weakens it to prevent involuntary grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. The relaxed muscle will reduce the wear and tear on the teeth due to grinding. In addition, headaches stemmed from the stress/pressure should be reduced or subsided. Added benefit may be the softened appearance of the jaw line for those who may have had the appearance of square jaw by over-developed masseter muscle from the Bruxism.
Here are several reasons to check out a dentist’s office (BOTOX® certified) for a BOTOX® application:
• Dentists are very experienced with injections (giving 20 to 30 injections every day!)
• Dentists know the facial anatomy better than most doctors
• This is a service requested by many dental patients
