You probably know about Botox as a cosmetic treatment to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But did you know that the botulinum toxin from Botox has been used in the medical field for a long time? More importantly, did you know that dentists also use Botox to treat a wide variety of problems?
Here’s what you should know about the use of Botox in dentistry.
Botox uses the toxin onobotulinumtoxinA to temporarily stop muscles from moving. This toxin will block certain signals that tell the muscle to contract. As the muscles relax, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is reduced.
Botox can also be used to treat various medical conditions too, such as bladder dysfunctions, cervical dystonia, lazy eyes, and chronic migraines.
The effects of Botox, however, aren’t permanent and you will have to undergo the treatment periodically to get the desired results.
Botox can be used to treat a variety of oral health issues as well as help you address certain cosmetic dental problems.
Although Botox has been around for quite some time now, a lot of people don’t expect to be offered this treatment in the dentist’s office. But, as you can see, Botox can help you treat different dental problems and even address some cosmetic issues that may not affect your oral health, but could impact your self-esteem.
