Dental Botox Treatments
What is Dental Botox?
Botox is generally a cosmetic procedure to reduce the appearance of aging by reducing wrinkles and fine lines in your skin. However, there is a revolutionary new application in dentistry. Dental Botox injections help patients ease and often eliminate headaches caused by tooth grinding and orofacial pain. Botox also helps with TMJ pain.

Safe and Effective
Dental Botox is safe, effective, and regulated by the FDA for treating frown lines. This cosmetic dental procedure is available at Dental Partners of Boston, one of the most trusted dentists in the area. Areas where dental botox is a useful treatment, include the following:
Dentists use Botox to treat temporomandibular joint or TMJ disorders. TMJ disorders result from an overworked or displaced TMJ. The disorder is a common problem that affects many people all over the world. It is characterized by grinding or clenching teeth, movement of the disc between the ball and socket of that joint, and arthritis. This can cause tension headaches, sharp pain, or even lockjaw. Thankfully, there are solutions, and we offer some of the most effective treatment options around for our patients.
Using Botox to treat TMJ disorder eases the tension and pain in the jaw by immobilizing the muscles in often unconscious grinding or other powerful movements of the jaw that can cause pain and headaches. Many patients experience relief as soon as the first treatment or within a few days.
If you are concerned that you might have a TMJ problem, don’t hesitate to contact us for a consultation.
Tension headaches are often caused by a constant muscle contraction in one area of the face, often in the jaw. Dental Botox treatments can help create partial paralysis in those muscles that cause tension headaches. Botox is also effective in helping to ease migraine headaches.
There is a range of dental issues that cause headaches, which is often the reason patients come to see us at Dental Partners of Boston. If you are suddenly experiencing a lot of headaches, schedule an appointment.
Decreasing Orofacial Pain
Another benefit of Botox is that it can block nerve signals and relax muscle pain. This is useful in helping patients with chronic orofacial pain. Botox is injected into the trigger areas of the pain, essentially muting the neurotransmitters that notify the brain that the body is in pain.
The treatment varies depending on the type of pain you are experiencing. Still, there is always a solution to try, so don’t feel as though you have to endure pain. We can help to distinguish what kind of pain you have, and with a proper diagnosis, you will be able to find relief. If a dental treatment won’t work for you, we won’t recommend it. You may need to see your doctor, and we can help you make that decision.
Sculpting Your Smile
Dentists have the option to use Botox as a cosmetic treatment to correct a “gummy smile.” A gummy smile refers to too much of your gums showing when you smile. Injections in the upper lip relax the muscles that pull the lip up too high, revealing the “gummy smile.” Results can be seen in just a few minutes and last for up to six months.
Many people wish for a beautiful smile and seek cosmetic improvements such as crown lengthening, tooth whitening, or veneers. If you want to make a change in your smile’s appearance, schedule an appointment. We will discuss your goals, and consult about the best way to achieve them.
