San Marcos, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
Jeffrey Allred DDS at Allred Dental in San Marcos, CA is now providing therapeutic Botox injections. Botox till recently was known to be used mainly for cosmetic purposes, but now it is used in dentistry as well.
“Innovative uses have been found for Botox in the dentistry field. Research has shown that Botox has substantial benefits as an adjunctive therapy in dental and cosmetic treatment. It has clinical uses as an adjunct in TMJ and bruxism cases. Patients with moderate chronic temporomandibular joint and facial pain can greatly benefit from dental Botox treatments. Injected, Botox has shown to greatly reduce the intensity of muscle contractions that contribute to TMJ and facial pain, giving patients significant relief.” – said Dr. Allred. “Patients who suffer from high lip line can also benefit from dental Botox treatments, as it is often used in conjunction with dermal filler therapy as a non-surgical alternative to these cases.” – He added.
Botox is also used in dentistry for retaining muscles during orthodontic therapy, relaxing the depressor anguli oris muscles and for helping patients get used to new dentures.
