Benefits Beyond Esthetics

Prevention is an instinctive practice in our daily routines, often performed without conscious effort. We brush and floss our teeth to prevent cavities, we see the dentist to prevent failing oral health, and we even get Botox to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. While Botox is originally known for its cosmetic applications in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, it has emerged as a valuable treatment option in the field of dentistry! The botulinum toxin present in Botox has a long history of therapeutic uses, several of which are utilized to enhance facial aesthetics in dentistry. Dr. Dan Knellinger is proud to implement Botox into treatment plans to enhance your smile and alleviate any pain and discomfort so you can continue shining with a confident, healthy smile!

Botox In Dentistry

Botox has found significant applications in the field of dentistry due to its muscle-relaxing properties. While commonly known for its cosmetic uses, Botox is also utilized in dentistry to address various concerns. It can effectively treat high lip lines, lip augmentation, bruxism (teeth grinding), and help readjust dentures caused by shifting jaw muscles. Botox is also highly beneficial in managing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, which is characterized by jaw pain, headaches, and teeth grinding. With its minimally invasive nature and proven safety, Botox offers patients a comfortable and effective treatment option, improving both their oral health and overall facial aesthetics.

Botox For TMJ

Teeth grinding can lead to various costly issues, causing significant dental discomfort. If you’re currently experiencing symptoms of TMJ, such as jaw tension, headaches resulting from teeth grinding, or even a locked jaw due to excessive stress, there are effective solutions available to alleviate your dental suffering.

While traditional remedies like mouthguards, physical therapy, or surgery have proven helpful, Dr. Knellinger offers a modern and well-established option for TMJ disorder involves the use of Botox injections. Botox for TMJ effectively halts the continuation of teeth grinding, preventing potential long-term oral damage. As TMJ issues arise from muscle tension induced by stress, injecting Botox into the jaw muscles can induce relaxation and provide relief from pain and discomfort.
