BOTOX® Dental Treatment

Posted on August 6th, 2013 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

You may shy away upon hearing the word BOTOX®, however, it can be used to help a variety of dental problems on top of the aesthetic improvements. BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic injections help those suffering from TMJ pain or teeth grinding or clenching, and are administered at Art of Modern Dentistry by a BOTOX® certified doctor. It can be an integral part of dental implant surgery, relieving painful conditions triggered by the muscles of the jaw.
BOTOX® was originally used for medical purposes to relieve facial tics, involuntary clenching and other medical problems. After just one treatment, many patients generally get three to four months of relief. These injections help patients overcome dental challenges related to muscle contraction. Not only do they help the consequences of TMJ, but they also ensure the success of other dental restorations and surgical procedures.
TMJ Disorder
In the past, traditional treatments like dental splints and night guards were used to treat the extreme pain caused by TMJ disorder, teeth grinding and teeth clenching. Fortunately, BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic relaxes the muscles that control the jaw joint. The injections deliver targeted treatment to the source of the problem and allow you to enjoy your life free from pain.
Dental Implant Surgery
Because BOTOX® injections relax the muscles surrounding the jaw joint, they are useful in reducing the stress placed on new dental implants. This treatment is especially important in the one-day implant process, where the implants are placed in one appointment. Reducing the stress put on these procedures helps the implant become successfully incorporated into the jaw bone.
Whether you are seeking BOTOX® for therapeutic or cosmetic reasons, Art of Modern Dentistry will make sure you receive superior results. If you are interested in the procedure or want more information, contact us – we’d be happy to assist you.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
