What Is Facial Injection Treatment?

For many years, facial injectables were known for treating wrinkles, crow’s-feet, and worry lines. However, dentists around the country use injectable treatments to address a range of dental conditions. Treatment involves injecting a type of medication called OnabotulinumtoxinA into muscle tissue.

OnabotulinumtoxinA is designed to block the chemical signals coming from your nerves. When injected into your muscle tissue, the medication blocks the signals that cause your facial muscles to tighten and contract. This allows your facial muscles to relax and reduces the tension in your face, jaw, neck, and shoulders.

What Do Facial Injections Treat?

Our dentists recommend facial injections in your cheek and chewing muscles to treat a wide range of issues, including:

  • Tooth grinding: Patients who clench or grind their teeth may find relief with injectable treatment. Relaxing the jaw muscles can alleviate discomfort and prevent future damage from clenching or grinding.
  • TMJ: TMJ causes discomfort due to the hyperactivity of the muscles surrounding the jaw joints. Facial injectables treat many TMJ symptoms, including headaches, jaw tension, and muscle pain.
  • Gummy smile: If your smile is “gummy” due to overgrown gum tissue or a short upper lip can benefit from facial injectables. Treatment can relax the lip muscles and achieve a more natural and aesthetically pleasing smile.

How Do Facial Injections Work?

Receiving facial injection treatment takes only a few minutes 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. It generally takes 3-7 days to take full effect and results typically last 3-4 months.

Do I Still Have To Use A Mouthguard?

Do you use a mouthguard to treat your tooth clenching and grinding? Then facial injections may help you. Relaxing the muscles around the jaw through routine injections reduces the need for a mouthguard for many patients. 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.
