What is Dental Botox?

Dental Botox, also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected into specific muscles, it temporarily relaxes them by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contraction. The FDA has approved this safe and effective treatment for various medical and cosmetic applications, including the treatment of TMJ disorders, bruxism, and facial wrinkles.

Benefits of Dental Botox

  • Relief from TMJ/TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder): TMJ disorders can cause severe pain, headaches, jaw clicking, and limited jaw movement. Dental Botox can relax the overactive muscles responsible for these symptoms, providing much-needed relief.
  • Treatment of bruxism (teeth grinding): Bruxism, or chronic teeth grinding, can lead to tooth wear, fractures, and jaw pain. Dental Botox weakens the masseter muscles (the main chewing muscles), reducing the intensity of grinding and clenching.
  • Improvement in appearance: Dental Botox is also effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, forehead, and eyes, providing a more youthful and refreshed look.
  • Relief from other orofacial muscle problems: Dental Botox can help alleviate excessive muscle tension, spasms, and tightness in the face, neck, and jaw area, improving comfort and function.

  • Injection process: Using a very fine needle, Dr. Nosti will skillfully inject the Botox into the targeted muscles. The injections are relatively painless, with minimal discomfort.
  • Post-treatment care and instructions: After the treatment, you will receive detailed instructions on how to care for the treated area and when to expect the full effects of Dental Botox, which typically take two to three days to become noticeable.
