What is BOTOX®, and how is it used in dentistry?

Botulinum Toxin Therapy, commonly known as BOTOX® or Xeomin®, provides non-surgical treatment to address issues like jaw clenching and teeth grinding. It involves injecting a purified form of the botulinum toxin to relax muscles and provide relief from jaw tension, headaches, and facial pain associated with dental problems. Additionally, these substances are widely utilized for cosmetic purposes in dentistry, helping to enhance facial aesthetics by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.  

As an integral component of modern dental care, BOTOX®  contributes to both therapeutic and aesthetic aspects, offering patients a comprehensive approach to oral health and well being. Dentists skilled in the administration of BOTOX® can tailor their use to address a range of dental concerns, promoting not only functional improvements but also a harmonious and youthful appearance.
