BOTOX® is known as a powerful tool to smooth fine lines and give patients a more youthful appearance, but it can also be used to address a number of non-cosmetic concerns. At Great Lakes Family Dental, our dentist can use BOTOX for TMJ therapy in Jackson, Michigan. To learn more about how Dr. Asha Kinra can use BOTOX to improve your quality of life, schedule a visit to our office by calling 517.787.0550 today.

BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) is an FDA approved medication that is injected into the muscles and various parts of the body to smooth frown lines and crow’s feet as well as treat non-cosmetic conditions, relieving symptoms for greater comfort and quality of life. New technology allows our dentist to use BOTOX to address symptoms of:

  • Bruxism or teeth grinding
  • Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating
  • TMJ disorders
  • Chronic migraines

Though BOTOX is not a permanent solution to any of these conditions, it can temporarily block pain signals from nerves to the muscles, relieving your discomfort. These injections will typically be made around the ears, jaw or neck, and the required amount of BOTOX will vary for each patient depending on their muscle mass and the severity of their condition. Because it does not involve surgery, incisions or stitches, there are few to no marks left on the patient. Our team includes a certified BOTOX provider, making these treatments completely safe for our patients.
