How Can Botox Be Used To Treat Your Dental Problems?

Many of you probably clench your teeth on a regular basis without even realizing it! If you have a sore jaw and headaches in the morning, chances are you are grinding your teeth while you sleep. Grinding your teeth can cause a number of dental problems like tooth decay and even tooth loss.

Many dentists will usually try a number of methods to help you break the habit. You may have splints, or even a mouth guard. Dr. Gilbert, however, is using a breakthrough in the dental industry; Botox. Traditionally, Botox is used to remove wrinkles, but it is now being used to treat ailments, such as migraines and teeth clinching.

The result is healthier teeth and gums, as well as relief from headaches without the dependence on painkillers. If you’ve been suffering from headaches, tooth grinding, or jaw tension, please give us a call at our Sandy Spring, GA office and schedule a consultation today.
