Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, is useful for a number of dental therapeutic procedures. These procedures can help relieve pain as well as aid in helping dental treatment plans.
Botox works by stopping the release of acetylcholine, which is responsible for muscle contraction. Stopping acetylcholine causes a temporary muscle paralysis that has the potential to last up to three months. After this time, the muscle will return back to its full function without any adverse side effects. Used correctly, Botox can be incredibly helpful for certain procedures.
Botox products are useful because they are not invasive or very painful. Botox is a great therapeutic tool to help dental, head and neck, and facial areas that have been problematic to dentists for a number of years.
These procedures can be carried out without much concern due to their temporary nature. These procedures are completely reversible over the course of time, and generally, don’t have any long-term side effects.
