Do you have TMJ pain or unwanted facial wrinkles? Botox may be right for you.
Botox is most commonly used for smoothing of facial wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyes (glabellar region), around the sides of the eyes (crow's feet)
and around the lips.
Botox also has important clinical uses as an adjunct in TMJ and bruxism cases, and for patients with chronic TMJ and facial pain. Botox is also used to complement esthetic dentistry cases, as a minimally invasive alternative to surgery in the oral area.
Botox placement typically takes 10-15 minutes to place and can be done without any anesthetic. Results start to occur 2-10 days after treatment and typically last up to 4 months. Side effects are minimal other than the occasional bruising or redness from an injection.
