BOTOX® in the Dental Chair?
BOTOX® offers relief from more than just wrinkles.
BOTOX® has been proven as being a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles, and BOTOX® injection is becoming increasingly popular. When most people visualize BOTOX® treatment they envision visiting a BOTOX® certified doctor’s office where they administer shots that decrease the aging effects of crow’s feet, laugh and frown lines in the face to help patients appear more youthful. Yet, an increasing number of people are discovering the benefits of receiving BOTOX® injections in the dental chair.
Used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders, BOTOX® is increasingly being sought out by patients seeking relief from associated jaw tension, discomfort and pain. BOTOX® injections are also known to eliminate severe and debilitating migraine headaches related to teeth grinding and can greatly minimize lock jaw. Additionally, BOTOX® treatment can increase overall dental health by reducing the excessive grinding that can lead to worn teeth and damaged gums that often require costly treatments.
A non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, BOTOX® injections are administered in office by a BOTOX® certified treatment provider and no hospital stay is required. Patients typically experience noticeable improvements within one or two days after treatment, although it can take up to one week to achieve optimal relief.
Although complications are rare, as with any medical procedure, all possible risks should be discussed with a doctor prior to treatment. Patients should always be honest and disclose any medication or substance use to their provider before treatment. BOTOX® injections are safe when administered by a medical professional who is trained in its use. As a dentist, Dr. Kelly B. Wettstein has advanced training in the oral and maxillofacial areas (the face from chin to forehead) and is also a certified provider of BOTOX®.
