The use of Botox is growing in popularity in dentistry because of its use to provide therapeutic measures to manage TMJ dysfunction, bruxism, and headaches.  In addition to these therapeutic reasons for Botox, it is traditionally used to treat fine lines and wrinkles of the forehead and around the eyes and mouth. The longevity of Botox injections can last for three to four months before needing to be readministered. Dentists are highly trained in the myofascial region and in administering injections which allow them to provide comfortable and effective Botox treatment. Our dentists at West Des Moines Dental Center are highly trained and members of The American Academy of Facial Esthetics.
