Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable made of botulinum toxin type A, which is a neurotoxin often used for cosmetic purposes. It’s an effective solution for treating:

  • Migraines
  • Severe TMD
  • Orofacial pain 
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

The highly-trained team at Norwalk Family Dental includes certified Botox and dermal filler providers. Fillers can reduce signs of aging, restore facial volume and symmetry, and enhance your cosmetic results.

Is Botox right for me?

If you experience pain associated with migraine, TMD, and other causes of orofacial pain, you might be a good candidate for Botox injections. Your dental provider reviews your oral health and medical history, asks questions about your symptoms, examines your face, jaw, mouth, teeth, and gums, and might take X-rays.

What causes facial or jaw pain?

Facial pain can result from lifestyle habits, injuries, genetics, or chronic disease like arthritis. For example, if you grind or clench your teeth, experience chronic stress, dislocate part of your jaw joint, or have osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, jaw pain can result. Numerous causes can contribute to migraines, including hormone imbalance, genetics, jaw clenching, or teeth grinding.

What should I expect during Botox injections?

The Norwalk Family Dental team personalizes a treatment plan to best match your needs and desired outcome. While you relax in a comfortable, reclining dental chair, your provider can numb the targeted area to eliminate any discomfort. 

They gently inject Botox into strategic parts of your scalp, forehead, face, or neck, depending on your symptoms and diagnosis. The procedure is fast and painless, taking just minutes.

What happens after Botox treatment?

After Botox injections, there’s no downtime so you can resume a normal daily routine. Your dental provider might recommend you undergo multiple Botox treatments and maintenance sessions to achieve long-lasting pain relief and enhance antiaging results. 

They might recommend more than one type of treatment, such as Botox plus wearing a mouthguard at night to prevent teeth grinding.
