Yes, Botox® is the #1 non-invasive facial cosmetic procedure in the United States – because it works. It is safe, effective, and delivers unmatched results. Botox®, or botulinum toxin A injection, helps in the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines by attaching to nerve endings and interrupting nerve transmission to the motor muscles of the face. Muscle contraction beneath the skin is the cause of these “dynamic wrinkles,” and when muscle contraction ceases, the skin becomes smooth again. So, what does all of this have to do with dentistry? In recent years, Botox® has been FDA approved for the clinical treatment of chronic pain from headaches, migraines, bruxism and TMJ.
At the office of Dr. Muse, we are in a unique position to provide our patients with cosmetic treatment for wrinkles, including cosmetic facial fillers and lip enhancements. The benefit of your trusted Lafayette dentist administering Botox® treatment, aside from convenience, is that we are able to give dental blocks so that you will be numb for the procedure for a pain-free injection.
Muscle tension, excessive bite force, teeth grinding or bruxism, and TMJ/TMD are fairly common problems that our patients suffer from, that all originate in or near the mouth or the temporomandibular joint or jaw joint. These are issues that may seem fairly insignificant but can have serious side effects that might be impacting your life, without you even knowing it. One of the most common manifestations of these issues is chronic pain of the head, jaw, face, and neck.
Botox® can provide significant relief for patients suffering from orofacial pain, by greatly reducing the intensity of contributing muscle contractions. With Botox® at your Lafayette dentist, usually administered at about half of the dosage used in cosmetic treatment, you can finally find relief from chronic migraines, tension headaches, TMJ/TMD, and teeth grinding or bruxism.
At your Lafayette dentist, Dr. Muse is in a unique position to provide cosmetic solutions and relief from head, neck, and facial pain. Only about 7% of dentists in North America offer Botox® treatment, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this revolutionary treatment option. If you interested in cosmetic wrinkle treatment, or are at your wits end trying to find relief from facial, head, or neck pain associated with TMJ/TMD, bruxism, teeth grinding/clenching, we would love to speak with you about the possibility of dental Botox®.
If you have any questions about Botox® or would like to schedule a consultation with your Lafayette dentist, please contact the office of Dr. Muse today at 337.446.2397. We would love to help you relieve your pain and get back to living a happy, pain-free life.
