Botox is not just for cosmetic purposes. It can also help with clenching and grinding during the day or night, TMJ, and can be an alternative to night guards for those who do not want to wear something in their mouth at night.
The treatment involves injecting a purified form of botulinum toxin A into certain facial muscles to temporarily relax them. The toxin minimizes clenching and relaxes the muscles, which will help relieve the tension, headaches, and jaw pain you have been experiencing.
This can reduce the appearance of any wrinkles present in the area of treatment, helping to smooth out creases and lines on the forehead, around the mouth, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows. The presence of Botox treatment can even prevent new wrinkles from forming by reducing muscle activity in the affected area.
