Do you suffer from headaches due to clenching? Did you know Botox can be used to minimize or even eliminate this pain?
I decided to start offering Botox treatments in my office when I noticed a gap in the relief I was able to provide to my patients. I have SO MANY patients that clench and grind their teeth and SO MANY have discomfort. I was able to offer them a nightguard to protect their teeth and sometimes this would help with the pain as well, but sometimes it wouldn’t and sometimes patient’s felt they clenched harder. I felt helpless in treating these patients.
Getting certified to treat these patients with Botox helped me bridge the gap! The Botox minimizes the patient’s ability to clench by weakening the muscle temporarily. This helps with the pain and also protects the teeth!!
