Botox is most commonly known for treating fine lines and wrinkles on the face, but many people are surprised to learn that it also has a number of medical and dental applications as well. A dentist may not be the first person to come to mind when thinking about Botox injections, but they're actually uniquely qualified due to their extensive medical training and experience and specialization in the muscles of the face and jaw. Our dentist Dr. Mark Gleckner offers cosmetic Botox and family dentistry services in Florham Park, NJ.
Dental Botox Treatments in Florham Park, NJ
Along with the cosmetic applications and anti-aging effects, Botox has a number of medical and dental uses as well. One of the ways Dr. Gleckner uses Botox is to help patients suffering from TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders.
Botox injections can help relax the muscles in the jaw, potentially relieving some of the symptoms of TMJ disorder which can make it painful to chew, speak, and sometimes cause the jaw to lock in place.
Other dental uses for Botox include treating a "gummy smile." Whether you have ongoing pain and stiffness in your jaw from clenching or grinding your teeth in your sleep, suffer from TMJ disorders, or need cosmetic improvements to your smile or your face, Dr. Gleckner can help.
