Facial injectables are known primarily for their ability to treat wrinkles, crow’s-feet, worry lines, and other cosmetic issues. However, they have many uses in dentistry, as well. Facial injection involves administering a type of medication called OnabotulinumtoxinA into the muscle tissue. The substance is designed to block the chemical signals coming from your nerves.
When injected into your cheek and chewing muscles, the medication blocks the signals that cause your facial muscles to tighten and contract. This allows your facial muscles to relax for long periods of time, reducing tension in your face, jaw, neck, and shoulders.
Besides their cosmetic benefits, facial injections provide relief for many dental conditions, such as:
If you’ve been using a mouthguard to treat your tooth clenching and grinding, facial injections can help. Relaxing the muscles around your jaw through routine injection treatments can reduce the need for a mouthguard. You’ll no longer have to worry about wearing an oral appliance to prevent damage to your teeth because your condition will be controlled by the medication, making for a better treatment experience overall.
