At Sterling Dental Group, we are continually searching out new ways to treat your dental issues and help create the flawless smile you desire. We’re happy to offer Botox® as part of the extensive list of corrective and aesthetic services we provide.
Botox for TMJ
Botox has been administered for over 20 years for both cosmetic and therapeutic purposes. We use Botox therapeutically to relieve painful symptoms associated with muscle tension in the jaw. Botox treatments are beneficial for patients suffering from some TMJ disorders, grinding and clenching of teeth, as it helps reduce both the number of clenching events and their intensity. This can not only minimize discomfort, but also potential damage to teeth, jaw bones, gums, and the muscles and joints associated with chewing.
Botox for Your Smile
Cosmetically, we utilize Botox to help you achieve your perfect smile. When muscles are injected with Botox, they no longer contract, making fine lines and wrinkles soften and relax. We treat areas around the lips, mouth, eyes and forehead to minimize these lines or to show less gum when smiling.
