Botox for Jaw Clenching and Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)
In addition to making a dramatic change in the lines of your face, BOTOX® therapies from Dr. Miner can help alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with chronic jaw clenching and teeth grinding. While treatments such as anti-inflammatory medications do not address the source of the problem, injecting small doses of BOTOX® directly into the large muscle of the jaw can weaken it enough to stop involuntary grinding and clenching. Chewing and facial expressions are not affected at all by BOTOX® injections, but grinding damage to teeth, inury to the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) and headaches should be reduced or eliminated.
Botox for Migraine Tension Headaches
Studies have shown that patients experiencing specific types of migraine and tension headaches can benefit immensely from BOTOX® therapies. With a series of injections along the forehead and upper neck, many patients report substantial reduction or elimination of headaches within several days, and full benefits realized at two months. BOTOX® therapies are best used to treat future symptoms, with repeat injections required every 4-5 months to maintain the effect.
