Botox for Dental Problems & Facial Pain

Whether you are prone to facial pain or headaches that stem from dental issues, or simply want a more youthful smile, our trained Columbus Botox dentists at Capstone Dental can help by administering dental Botox injections.

Not only can dental Botox alleviate pain from migraines and TMJ issues, it can be paired with dermal fillers and used cosmetically to fill wrinkles around your mouth to effectively enhance your smile.

What is Dental Botox?

The Botox used in our Columbus dental office is the same type of Botox that is traditionally used by other medical professionals to treat cosmetic concerns. Botox is a purified protein that, when injected, attaches to a patient’s nerve endings to inhibit nerve transmission. After a Botox injection, a patient’s facial motions beneath the injection sites will stop temporarily. This effect is especially useful for people who want to stop grinding their teeth, or halt wrinkles from getting worse. While Botox effects are temporary, they can sometimes last three to four months on average before having to return for another appointment. 

Is it Safe to Get Botox from My Dentist?

Botox in dentistry is safe when performed by a dentist who is trained to give botox injections. Botox (or botulinum toxin A) dental treatment has an excellent safety record when performed by licensed Botox dentists like those who work at Capstone Dental. 

Botox Treatments in Dentistry

Our Columbus dentists may recommend dental botox treatments to patients experiencing any of the following:

  • Teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism): Dental botox injections can rid you of teeth grinding and clenching issues as well as pain by relaxing your jaw muscles. Grinding and clenching your teeth can cause serious damage to your mouth and jaw, so our dentists may also recommend tooth restoration procedures such as dental crowns or dental inlays and onlays in place of or in addition to dental botox treatment.
  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint) pain: Dental botox can work to reduce muscle contractions and stress that contribute to face and jaw pain.
  • Migraine headaches: Dental botox can block migraines from returning for months at a time — especially if they stem from TMJ issues.
  • Cosmetic issues: If you want to give your face a more youthful appearance, our skilled dentists may recommend pairing Botox injections with dermal fillers. The Botox can be used for forehead and eye wrinkles, while the dermal fillers will simply smooth your skin so you can have full control of your smile!
