BOTOX and Bruxism

If you suffer from the symptoms of bruxism, when you unconsciously clench and grind your teeth while awake or asleep, you know how painful and tense the muscles of your jaw can become. Using BOTOX, our dentists can temporarily halt unconscious clenching, allowing the muscles in your face to relax and your teeth to be saved from the damage of grinding.

BOTOX and Migraines

Chronic migraines affect more than four million people in the United States. If you suffer from this debilitating illness, regular BOTOX injections can help relieve your pain. Our team can work with you to create a treatment schedule that will help prevent migraines while allowing you to keep living your life completely normally.


TMJ (or TMD) disorders are caused by tension in the point where the jawbone meets the skull. Like Bruxism, these sorts of problems generally arise from unconscious clenching of muscles, in this case those around the joint. BOTOX injections near this joint can prevent the muscles from engaging in the unconscious clenching that leads to and exacerbates TMJ disorders. BOTOX can even help eliminate the symptoms of lockjaw!
