Botox is a well known solution for cosmetic needs, but it can also benefit patients in the treatment of TMJ and migraines. Call to schedule a consult with DR. Palmieri and his team. Treatment can usually be done in the same visit.
Botox is a minimally invasive injection containing a highly purified botulinum-toxin protein used for a variety of cosmetic and medical services, especially treatments of the face.
Botox works by temporarily immobilizing targeted muscles reducing the amount of muscle contractions largely responsible for fine lines and wrinkles.
With grinding and clenching your teeth — whether it’s stress-related or subconscious during sleep — Botox can calm the nerves and tissues involved in grinding. Only the localized treatment area is affected, so there’s no danger of wider paralysis.
You’ll notice a less gummy smile or reduced symptoms of teeth grinding within a week, depending on why you received the injections. Botox's effects often last a few months, but results vary, and you may need more or fewer treatments than others.
