Therapeutic Botox for Jaw Pain and Excessive Sweating
Posted on December 06, 2016 by Dr. Blume in Blog
Almost everyone knows that Botox helps fine lines and wrinkles. It is also used for hyperhidrosis or excess sweating.
A simple application of Botox in the under arms can stop sweating and odor for 6 to 9 months!
Botox can also be used for teeth grinding that causes pain around the jaw line. There are many people who wake in the morning after clenching all night, with headaches and pain. This is usually caused by the masseter muscle in the jaw line; dentists will recommend a night guard to prohibit grinding. Instead of a night guard try injecting a little Botox into that muscle to decrease grinding of the teeth while you sleep. It will relieve the pain you have the next day.
Once you discover the difference it may totally eradicate the action and resulting pain.
