Botox Dental Treatment

A Modern Approach to a Perfect Smile

What is Botox Dental Treatment and How Does It Work?

Botox, or botulinum toxin type A, is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It works by blocking nerve signals that cause muscles to contract, relaxing and temporarily paralyzing the muscles through highly specific and accurate injections. Botox has been used for medical purposes for over three decades and is famous for its aesthetic applications in reducing wrinkles and fine lines. However, Botox has many other uses, including treating certain medical conditions such as muscle spasms and migraines.


Our dentists study the relevant oral and maxillofacial areas in great detail, meaning you can trust their Botox dental treatment to be precise and to offer you natural-looking results. These effects are always temporary but can last for several months at a time. The muscle group targeted for injection depends on the primary area of concern and several areas can be treated in one session.

Botox In Dentistry

In dentistry, Botox is primarily used for cosmetic and therapeutic purposes. Botox can be used as a therapeutic intervention for temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) to relieve jaw pain and headaches caused by clenching and grinding (Bruxism).

Another common dental use of Botox for dental problems is the treatment of orofacial pain. This can include a range of conditions such as trigeminal neuralgia, myofascial pain in the masseter muscle, temporalis muscle and sternocleidomastoid (STM) muscle. Botox injections can help to relieve muscle tension and spasms, leading to decreased pain and improved function.

Aesthetic procedures

When it comes to cosmetic applications, Botox is used primarily to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that can occur around the mouth and lips. Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause the wrinkles to form, giving the patient a smoother and more youthful appearance. Another commonly used aesthetic procedure involving Botox is called “gummy smile treatment.” The procedure entails injecting Botox into the upper lip muscles to weaken their ability to elevate fully when an individual smiles. This results in a less visible gum line when smiling, hence the term “gummy smile.”

Botox can also be used to treat:

  • Аesthetic dental conditions like deep nasolabial folds, radial lip lines, high lip position.
  • Lip lines and jowls.
  • Crows feet and forehead wrinkles.
  • Enlarged masseter/cheek muscles.
  • Prevention of future wrinkle formation.
