BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a medication that helps to temporarily reduce muscle activity. It is approved to treat a variety of issues around the body. Dr. Carey Norton uses it to help patients suffering from TMJ disorder. Teeth clenching is one common contributor to TMJ disorder, and by helping relax facial muscles, teeth clenching can be reduced. Our dentist may also recommend BOTOX® to patients that experience migraines or chronic headaches, or other craniofacial pain.
BOTOX® involves no incisions or stitches, and is administered quickly and comfortably in our office. Our team may use ice or a topical numbing cream prior to treatment to ensure that you are completely comfortable. There is no recovery time, which means you can resume your normal daily activities following your appointment. You may notice results as quickly as 24 to 48 hours after treatment. Results may last up to four months.
