Botox for Facial Pain and Headache Relief

What Is Botox?

Botox is a safe, conservative, non surgical, reversible, minimally invasive treatment modality to achieve cosmetic and pain relief results. While it is commonly known for its applications in facial aesthetics with regard to wrinkles, the beneficial therapy options for dental health are tremendous.

How Does Botox Work for Pain and Dental Treatments?

Often times, chronic pain can be caused as a result of muscle tension. Botox works by inhibiting the neurotransmitters that tell your muscles to contract. When there is no signal from the neurotransmitters, your affected muscles will not contract. Therefore, you will no longer have tension. No tension, no pain.

In other words, Botox will either reduce the intensity of the contraction of the muscle or will eliminate the contraction altogether. This will depend on the dosage
used.

How Long Does It Last?

This can last usually up to three months. Gradually, the muscle returns to its
full function with no side effects.

From this perspective, the benefits are extremely high. It can be used for a number of dental therapeutic procedures that can relieve pain and can retrain muscles. This enhances a patient’s dental treatment plan by making it more comfortable. In addition, it can non-surgically help address some serious disorders that have been frustrating to patients for many years.

The safety of these products is well known because of their temporary nature and the fact that they are totally reversible over time with generally no lasting effects. The other advantages are that it gives Dr. Takher and the patient the option to stop a therapy at any time and return to the previous state with no ill effects.

Can It Help Me?

Botox has important clinical uses as a supporting therapy in temporo mandibular joint (TMJ) and bruxism (teeth clenching/grinding) cases. In addition, it can help patients with chronic TMJ and facial pain. Also, botox is used to complement aesthetic
dentistry cases, as a minimally invasive alternative to surgically treating high lip-line cases, for denture patients who have trouble adjusting to new dentures, periodontal cases, gummy smiles, lip augmentation, and also for orthodontic cases where retraining of the facial muscles is necessary. Other issues that Botox can help address are migraines and mandibular spasms. Call to learn more Botox for Facial Pain and Headache Relief.
