What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX is a trade name for botulinum toxin, which comes in the form of a purified protein. BOTOX can be used to decrease the appearance of unsightly frown lines between the eyes and to smooth facial wrinkles. BOTOX can also be used to combat the effects of other wrinkles, but it is most frequently used around the eyes and on the forehead. BOTOX also has several medical benefits. For instance, BOTOX can be used to help treat migraines or to prevent excessive sweating. BOTOX can also be used to help crossed eyes or to correct a squint. At Findlay Dental Group, our dentists can often use BOTOX in conjunction with dermal filler therapy as a non-surgical alternative to treat high lip lines.

BOTOX and TMJ Disorder

The temporomandibular joint is the hinge that connects the lower jaw to the rest of your head. TMJ disorder occurs when this joint stops functioning properly. BOTOX has clinical uses as an adjunct in TMJ and bruxism cases, even more so for patients with moderate chronic temporomandibular joint and facial pain.
