What Is Facial Injection Treatment?

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.

What Do Facial Injections Treat?

Besides their cosmetic benefits, facial injections provide relief for many dental conditions, such as:

  • Bruxism, or grinding the teeth or clenching the jaws during sleep. Relaxing your chewing muscles can alleviate discomfort and prevent future damage to your teeth.
  • Jaw joint disorders, commonly known as TMJ/TMD. Injections can provide relief from many TMJ symptoms, including headaches, jaw tension, and muscle pain.
  • A gummy smile, which is a condition caused by excessive gum tissue or a short upper lip. Treatment can relax the lip muscles and help you achieve a more natural-looking smile.
Happy Patient

How Do Facial Injections Work?

Treatment is quick, painless, and doesn't require anesthesia. The medication is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles as determined by your doctor. You may experience a slight pinch, but patient discomfort is minimal. Facial injections take about 10-20 minutes to administer and require no healing time following your appointment. Most patients see full results within three to seven days.

Do I Still Have To Use A Mouthguard?

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.
