Reduce jaw pain with BOTOX® Therapeutic™ treatment. At Arbour Lake Dental Care in Northwest (NW) Calgary, we offer BOTOX to our Calgary patients for pain management, as well as to smooth and soften facial lines.
What is BOTOX®?
Most people know that BOTOX® treatments can smooth and soften facial lines, but did you know that at Arbour Lake Dental Care in Calgary, we also use it to help jaw and face pain caused by tight and over-stressed muscles? It can also help soothe headaches.
BOTOX® Therapeutic™ Treatments
BOTOX® Therapeutic™ treatments can also be used to relieve the pain and treat the symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ).
What are TMD and TMJ?
The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull.
Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) occurs because of issues with this joint or the muscles surrounding it.
This can result in moderate to extreme pain but Botox in dentistry may be able to help alleviate the symptoms associated with TMD.
