Botox® is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. Botox® can reduce signs of aging in lips, forehead, around the eyes and even the chin. Many people are not aware that Botox® is also used to treat common dental issues. Dr. Thiel can administer Botox® injections in his dental office for any of the following treatments:
Teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism):
Bruxism is a condition in which you grind or clench your teeth. Bruxism can occur while awake or asleep and is a common cause of sleep disorder. People with bruxism are also more likely to have sleep apnea.
TMJ (temporomandibular joint) pain:
TMJ is a disorder that causes pain to the muscles in the jaw joint. Causes of TMJ include arthritis, jaw injury or bruxism. Dr. Thiel treats TMJ with mouthguards or Botox® to relieve your jaw pain.
Botox® has been widely used to treat migraines since being approved by the FDA in 2010. The Botox® is believed to block the neurotransmitters that carry the pain signals of a migraine to the brain. A Botox® session typically lasts only 15 minutes and can bring relief in less than two weeks.
Botox® Injections reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, chin, neck and other features. Cosmetic Botox® is a safe and effective way of minimizing “bunny lines” and “laugh lines”. The dentist’s office is a great place to ensure privacy while Botox® is administered. Cosmetic Botox® for men has increased significantly over the past year, and treatment can be completed quickly and discreetly.
