How Botox injections can be used at Dentistry at Golden Ridge
Botox has become a household name. This neuromodulator, formulated with botulinum toxin type A, effectively addresses various issues such as temporomandibular joint disorder, chronic headaches and migraines, bruxism, and even the early signs of aging. Dr. Jamie Richard and her team at Dentistry at Golden Ridge of Golden, Colorado, can assist patients with these conditions by using this specialized injection designed for reducing muscle contractions. Its many uses make it a great addition to your routine dental examination and cleaning at our practice, providing simple yet effective relief that can last several months before further injections are required.
How does Dr. Jamie Richard use Botox injections in her dental practice?
Below are how Botox is utilized at Dentistry at Golden Ridge:
- Botox for chronic migraines and headaches. When patients have conditions such as bruxism which causes clenching and grinding of the teeth, this tension can contribute to issues such as chronic migraines and headaches. Instead of taking pharmaceuticals daily to manage discomfort, patients can ask our team about the use of Botox injections to alleviate this issue. Continued injections can maintain the results
- Botox for TMJ. Conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ/TMD, can cause tension and pain around the jaw and mouth. Botox injections can be administered into the muscles around this joint to alleviate discomfort and reduce clenching and grinding
- Botox for esthetics. Botox is most commonly known for treating fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging. Botox works on dynamic wrinkles, which are formed from the tension of the muscles of the face, so it is best used to treat crow’s feet, glabellar lines between the eyebrows, and forehead folds and wrinkles
