Muscle Relaxants

Muscle relaxants are commonly used in dentistry to manage conditions such as night grinding and clenching, as well as to relieve jaw pain. These medications work by relaxing the muscles of the jaw, which can help reduce tension and discomfort. By relieving muscle tension, muscle relaxants can also be helpful in treating other conditions related to muscle spasm or tightness. However, like any medication, muscle relaxants do have potential side effects, and it's important to consult with a qualified Botox Whangaparaoa dentist to determine if this treatment is right for you.

Facial injectables (Dysport, Botox)

We’ve all heard about it, so what is it and how does it work? Botox, or onobotulinumtoxin A, is a popular medication that is made from a purified protein derived from botulinum toxin. It works by temporarily blocking chemical signals from the nerves, which causes the facial muscles to relax. As a result, wrinkles and lines on the face are softened, giving the appearance of a more youthful and rejuvenated look.

While Botox is widely known for its cosmetic uses, such as reducing wrinkles and fine lines, it also has other applications, particularly in the field of dentistry. Our Botox Whangaoaraoa dentists are qualified to administer Botox can use it for various dental conditions, including Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and bruxism, facial muscle pain due to clenching or grinding teeth, relieving tension in the jaw, and addressing aesthetic dental issues such as deep nasolabial folds, radial lip lines, high lip line, and black triangles between teeth.

When administered by an experienced professional, Botox is a safe and reliable medication that can produce natural-looking results and allow for full facial expressions. The effects of Botox typically last for several months, after which the medication gradually wears off and the muscles return to their previous state.

We’ve all heard about it, so what is it and how does it work? Originated from botulinum toxin, namely onobotulinumtoxin A, Botox is made from a purified protein. When injected under the skin, they block certain chemical signals from the nerves and temporarily relaxing the facial muscles. Botox is becoming increasingly popular with people wanting to soften the wrinkles and lines on the face and rejuvenate their appearance. 

The medication is reliable and safe, and when injected by a experienced professional it should still look natural and allow a full range of facial expressions. In dentistry, the use of Botox go beyond aesthetics. Qualified dentists can use this minimally invasive procedure for managing muscle-related dental diseases such as Temporomandibular disorders and bruxism, for treating  facial muscle pain caused by clenching or grinding teeth, for relieving tension in the jaw, and as a temporary solution to aesthetic dental conditions like deep nasolabial folds, radial lip lines, high lip line and black triangles between teeth. The effects of Botox disappears naturally from the body over time as the medication gradually wears off.
