Chicago Botox Dental Treatment in Lakeview & South Loop

At Art of Modern Dentistry, we offer BOTOX® treatments by doctors certified in the procedure.

Do you experience pain caused by grinding or clenching your teeth or TMJ disorder? Do you have fine lines or wrinkles you would love to smooth out? In either of these situations, you may qualify for BOTOX® (Botulinum Toxin Type A injections). Our doctors are certified to administer this treatment option right in our office.

Most people recognize BOTOX® injections as a cosmetic treatment. However, it has been proven to work as a pain reliever for a number of dental conditions that cause tension in the jaw muscles. When this treatment is used for therapy rather than cosmetics, BOTOX® can effectively treat TMJ and can be beneficial during certain dental surgeries, as well as to ensure the success of a variety of other dental treatments.

At Art of Modern Dentistry, it’s our goal to provide each of our patients with the dentist Chicago that work best for them. This is why we made sure we were equipped to offer BOTOX injections. With the help of this procedure, many of our patients can receive relief in a less invasive way than many other treatment options available today.

BOTOX® Dental Therapeutic

BOTOX® injections weren’t initially used to improve appearance. In fact, this treatment was originally developed for medical uses. Muscle spasms, or when the muscles tighten involuntarily, can cause extreme discomfort and can even cause embarrassment. When BOTOX® injections are delivered to these muscles, it can resolve involuntary teeth clenching, facial tics and other dental and facial problems that are medical in nature. Most patients will see relief from these issues for about three to four months before requiring more injections.

At Art of Modern Dentistry, your dentists are BOTOX® certified so we can utilize these treatments to help you resolve any issues you may experience with your facial muscles. We use these injections to treat TMJ, as well as to ensure a more successful outcome for a number of surgical procedures and dental restorations.

An Effective Treatment for Teeth Grinding and Clenching, As Well as TMJ

Teeth clenching, teeth grinding and TMJ disorder can lead to a lot of pain and discomfort, disrupting daily life. The good news is we can help you resolve these issues with the use of BOTOX® for therapeutic purposes. These injections relax the muscles in the face responsible for controlling the temporomandibular joint, or jaw joint. Dental splints and night guards were previously used for treating these conditions, but BOTOX® can deliver targeted relief that fixes the issue at its source, rather than getting rid of the symptoms alone so you can live a pain-free life.

Its Use in Dental Implant Procedures

BOTOX® injections used during dental implant surgery work by relaxing the muscles near the joint of your jaw, which reduces the stress felt during the procedure. This is especially important in patients who undergo the implant procedure in one day, preparing the area and implanting the tooth without the need for multiple appointments. It reduces the stress on the dental implant, improving the success of the implant. This will ensure many years of a beautiful smile.
