Botox injections for treating bruxism, TMJ disorder, and facial wrinkles
At All Smiles Dental on Old Bridgeport Hill in Clarksburg, West Virginia, we believe in providing a variety of options for patients who might require more unique treatment approaches. Individuals diagnosed with conditions including bruxism, which causes clenching and grinding of the teeth, or TMJ disorder (TMD), which is a dysfunction of the jaw joint, may find relief through the use of Botox injections at our practice. Drs. Roger Suter and Adam Boustany and their team of providers regularly work with patients who struggle with these conditions to help find solutions for pain relief and damaged teeth.
What is bruxism?
Bruxism is a condition that causes patients to clench and grind their teeth unknowingly. It often occurs while sleeping, so solutions such as nightguards or splints may be recommended. Teeth damage and discomfort to the muscles around the jaw and mouth can occur due to tension throughout the night. Bruxism is often seen in patients with other coexisting conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD. These two conditions can be addressed with nightguards or, for more extended treatment, Botox injections.
Facial aesthetics in dentistry
Do You want to look 15 years younger and less stressed. Botox and Juvaderm are the answer. Drs Suter and Boustany are uniquely skilled in providing Botox injections for facial aesthetics. They have extensive training and knowledge in the facial muscles and movements of the mouth, eyes, and cheeks. They also offer Botox injections to smooth your facial wrinkles by reducing the visibility of crow’s feet and lines on your forehead to restore a more youthful look and enhance your smile.
How do Botox injections help?
Botox is a neuromodulator designed to reduce muscle contractions where it is injected. That means that the tight muscles responsible for these problems can be relaxed. In turn, this can reduce or even eliminate the clenching and grinding associated with these concerns. And relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox injections can provide relief for several months before reinjection is needed to maintain the results.
