Botox for Head and Neck Pain

Botox for Head and Neck Pain

Botox can be used for a variety of clinical reasons, including pain relief. Because Botox is a muscle relaxer, Botox injections can be used to alleviate chronic head and neck pain associated with TMJ and bruxism.

Botox injections take almost no time at all – the procedure is quick, easy, and it requires no anesthesia. Botox can take anywhere from a few days to a week to show full effects. Botox is composed of botulinum toxin, a form of a purified protein. It is injected into the facial muscles and manipulates the nerve transmission to those muscles. As a result, the tense, contracted muscles begin to relax.

If you are interested in Botox treatment, talk to your dentist about how this safe and easy procedure can create a drastic change in your chronic head and neck pain.
