Botox® for Oral-Facial Pain
Bruxism, the clenching and grinding of teeth, plagues one in three people at some point in their lives. Over time, this causes damage to tooth enamel, periodontal disease, pain, and headaches. In some cases, a mouth guard is helpful in eliminating the damage from bruxism. In other cases, Botox® is carefully injected into the muscles that control the jaw to stop the spasm of the muscles without affecting the patient’s ability to speak and chew.
