What is Botulinum Injections

Botulinum toxin or Botox is a toxin that is used to paralyse muscle activity temporarily. It's known for its uses in facial aesthetics, but Botox can also assist with various dental procedures.

Botox injections block specific chemical signals from the nerves, preventing the muscles from contracting. Although the primary use of Botox is to relax the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles temporarily, it can be used to treat other conditions.

How is Botox used in dentistry?

Botox has proven to aid in several dental procedures, such as treating high lip lines, Bruxism, dentures no longer fitting, and TMJ Disorders.

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder Bruxism cause severe facial pain due to intense muscle contractions, and treatment options are limited. Botox can help to reduce the intensity of these contractions by helping the muscles relax, thus relieving facial pain.
  • In aesthetic dentistry, Botox is just as crucial as porcelain veneers and composite resins because it affects the soft tissue around the mouth, enhancing a patient's smile.
  • Botox has also been used to retain muscles during orthodontic therapy. Orthodontic appliances can move the teeth into alignment, but if the patient has severe muscle movement, they relapse and shift back into their original position.
