Therapeutic Benefits of Botox and Fillers in Dentistry

Botox is well-known as a cosmetic treatment for eliminating wrinkles. Over the years, however, Botox and fillers have found a niche in modern dentistry by offering numerous therapeutic benefits. At Mid-Valley Dental Care, Northridge, California, Drs. Terence Lau, Casey Lau, and Kayla Lau use Botox injections for various dental treatments ranging from TMJ pain relief to denture fittings. Here are a few ways dental Botox can benefit you.

Therapeutic Benefits of Dental Botox 

When used in dentistry, Botox injections help relax muscles and nerves around your mouth, lips, and jaw to treat conditions like TMJ disorders, bruxism, jaw pain, and other dental issues.  

  • Botox for TMJ Pain – TMJ disorders can result in chronic headaches and painful jaw muscles due to muscle tension and spasms from clenching your jaws. Botox injections placed at specific trigger points in your face can help ease muscle tension and spasms and relieve painful symptoms. Depending on your condition, we can tailor your Botox treatment to give you months of pain relief.
  • Botox for Teeth Grinding – Nighttime bruxism is a common problem that can produce head and facial pain the following day. Botox injections to the jaw help relieve muscle tension and spasms caused by teeth grinding and jaw clenching during the night to provide pain relief.
  • Botox for Dentures – Sometimes, fitting new dentures comfortably can be challenging, making it difficult for denture wearers to adjust to their new prosthetics. Botox injections can be used to relax tense muscles around your jaw to make it easier to accommodate your new dentures and give you a more comfortable fit. 

Uses of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be used to close black gaps in your teeth, create fuller lips, enhance the look of your jaw or chin, erase smile lines, correct gum issues, and more.
