Therapeutic Botox Therapy

Botulinum toxin injection therapy (sometimes called Botox) has been used to treat headaches including migraines with great success for several years now. People with Temporo Mandibular dysfunction (TMJ) can also benefit from a series of injections.

What does Dentistry Have to do with Headaches?

Dentists are in a unique position to be able to help people with headaches; both migraines and those due to temporo mandibular dysfunction. The series of injections aims to help reduce involuntary muscle contractions, or spasm that control the muscles responsible for movement in the face- specifically chewing which generates strong muscle contraction.

Grinding and clenching of the teeth is also reduced by relaxing these muscles which is often a source of the pain.

Since dentists are often consulted about pain in the cheeks or temples, we are able to diagnose these problems and offer a simple effective treatment.

Botulinum toxin injection therapy has shown to improve these muscle spasms and any related pain.

We have seen people suffer from ‘crying headaches’ improve to where they are completely free from suffering.

What is the Procedure?

  • Very fine needles are used to place the medicine in about seven areas on each side of your face, head and neck.
  • The injections feel like a tiny pinch or bug bite, and there may be slight discomfort. We offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas, happy gas) for those people who request it.
  • You should feel improvement in anywhere from twenty-four hours up to two weeks.
  • Depending on the severity of your problems, you may need additional treatments
