Jordan River Dental is pleased to offer BOTOX® treatments.
Dentists are among the most trained in the healthcare industry regarding maxillofacial muscles. The integration of BOTOX in dentistry enables the dentists to combine the two methods of treatment to provide the best options for care.
Dr. Howard Katz is the recorded first doctor to use Botulinum Toxins (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin,etc.) for facial aesthetics (1999). Since then, the dental field continues to make tremendous strides in the use of BOTOX®. According to the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, BOTOX® relieves jaw tension by making muscles unable to engage in the powerful, often unconscious movement of the jaw that produces headaches and pain.
BOTOX® can be used to treat many different medical conditions, as well as cosmetic needs.
BOTOX® for medical use:
- TMJ related pain
- Tension Headaches
- Migraine Headaches
- Jaw soreness brought on by teeth grinding
BOTOX® for cosmetic use
- Remove wrinkles of the forehead
- Above the eyebrows
- Remove “crows” feet around the eyes
Before starting this or any treatment, please consult with one of doctors to review the benefits and the risks.
