Botox is an FDA approved a cosmetic and facial rejuvenation treatment that safely and effectively reduces the signs of aging. Patients can receive their Botox injection during their biannual dental care visit, or as regularly as they need them. Many patients receive Botox as part of their personalized smile makeover plan. In some cases, we may incorporate Botox injection into your treatment plan if you are suffering from teeth grinding, also known as bruxism.
BOTOX® for Bruxism
If you regularly grind your teeth or clench your jaw, you understand how painful it is. These actions will place a lot of strain on your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) which leads to pain, stiffness, and soreness when trying to open and close your mouth. BOTOX® is great treatment that has been proven to help patients who suffer from bruxism find relief. Dr. Chahal will inject the therapeutic treatment directly into the muscles in and around your mouth. This will allow the muscles to relax which will address the soreness. In doing this, the pressure is then released from the teeth and damage to your teeth is completely avoided. Keeping the muscles relaxed as much as possible will help retrain the brain to not over-use them.
