At Cranberry Dental Studio, we are proud to offer therapeutic Botox to treat patients with chronic migraines as well as patients who struggle with clenching or grinding.
In most cases, symptoms of chronic migraine, tension headaches, and neck pain arise directly from the muscle. Often, the same muscles that control the bite also generate headaches and pain from compression of the TMJ. Any problem that results from muscle pain or tension benefits from efforts to calm that muscle down. With the help of Botox, these muscles can be calmed to relieve painful symptoms.
Botox relaxes the muscle by decreasing its ability to contract. Targeting muscle groups that are the source of the problem is an effective way to alleviate chronic pain symptoms as well as limit the amount of force a muscle can produce.
For comprehensive treatment, Cranberry Dental Studio recommends regular treatment every 12 weeks. Research suggests that over time you can decrease the quantity or frequency of treatment over time while maintaining the same results.
