Why Use Botox?
Botox® is an FDA-approved, therapeutic treatment application that has been described in the medical community as “medicine’s answer to duct tape.”
In the last decade, Botox therapy has been used for the treatment of migraines, vocal-cord problems, oily skin, chewing problems, swallowing problems, muscle spasms, and drooling, which is why Allergan, the pharmaceutical company that manufactures it, refers to it as the “molecule that keeps on giving.”
Use of Botox is backed by more than 30 years of clinical research with over 17 million clinical treatments. At Parkhaven Dental Care, Plano dentist Dr. Scott Pincus is specially trained as a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics to help our patients with headaches, TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) issues, and smile design corrections and enhancements.
If you live in the Plano or Gunter, TX area and deal with headaches on a daily basis and have found no relief through prescription drugs, then you may be a candidate for Botox therapy at Parkhaven Dental Care. Botox relieves muscle tension that causes soreness in the jaw, neck, and upper back.
“After surviving a cycling accident and injury to my mouth and face, I suffered with chronic jaw and neck pain. I went through all of the expected treatments with no pain relief. I maintained my exhausting level of jaw pain with Ultram pain medicine for years. Scott Pincus recommended that I try Botox for relief. I was able to get enough relief to discontinue my pain medicine. The Botox along with the appropriate nightguard has helped tremendously. Thanks Dr. Scott” – Patient of 28 years
If you wake up with headaches, chew holes in your cheeks or can’t tolerate your existing nightguard, or find yourself clenching or grinding during the day, but you’re tired of taking medicine that doesn’t really help, then you might be a candidate for Botox therapy.
