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.
