In cosmetic surgery circles, BOTOX is an everyday term, being as it is the most common of all cosmetic surgery types. But many dental patients may be unfamiliar with BOTOX procedures and wonder what it has to do with dentistry.
Many people are familiar with Botox in Ormond Beach, FL. It is generally used as a method to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging in a person’s face. However, it has another viable use: an effective therapy option for people suffering from TMJ disorders. Your temporomandibular joint is responsible for comfortably opening and closing your mouth, so when problems develop, it can become painful to carry out basic tasks. As a muscle relaxant, Botox can be used to reduce TMJ pain and make eating and talking much easier.
