The word “Botox” often brings to mind injections used to treat cosmetic issues such as facial wrinkles and fine lines. But, were you aware that Botox injections can also serve as an invaluable treatment for many common dental problems, like Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)? This condition impacts the jaw, causing significant pain and discomfort. Thankfully, at Mark H. Wright DDS, Dr. Mark Wright and his team can help you find relief using a therapy best known for frown lines treatment.
Many have often demonized Botox as something only wealthy people with too much money and vanity use to appear younger. However, that’s far from the truth.
The medication Botox is formulated using botulinum toxin type A and is primarily used to reduce muscle contractions. Botox is mostly considered a cosmetic anti-aging treatment option, but the medication has been used to treat many other conditions.
For instance, Botox can treat overactive bladder, chronic migraines, and cervical dystonia. When Dr. Wright injects Botox into the muscles surrounding the jaw joint, the treatment can reduce the painful symptoms of conditions such as TMD and bruxism, which causes grinding and clenching of the teeth.
Here at Mark H. Wright DDS, we offer patients lasting relief from facial pain. By choosing Dr. Wright, you’re in the hands of an experienced and trusted physician who can also provide other dental services during the same visit as your Botox treatment, saving you the hassle of making multiple appointments and seeing different professionals.
