Overactive muscles in the face can cause extreme tension and lead to unwanted pain. Without realizing it, you may be constantly contracting small facial muscles leading to extreme tension. Staring at a computer screen all day for example may lead to tension headaches between the eyes. Clenching during the day or night may lead to headaches on the sides of the head or jaw problems. Botox can be used to reduce the activity in those muscles which reduces tension and pain. To learn more about Botox, please refer to our Botox Page. Dr. Stapleton in West Houston is proud to be one of the only dentists in Texas that can provide this relief to his patients.

Nightguards are a great first line of defense when it comes to teeth wear, however sometimes that is not enough! Botox can help relax the muscles that cause you to clench and grind your teeth. This leads to a significant reduction in wear to your teeth. Most patients also experience much less tension when they wake up and feel much better throughout the day.

Will Botox help with my Headaches or Migraines?
Botox was first used in facial esthetics to treat and prevent wrinkling of the face due to overactive muscle movement. Patients that received botox treatment also reported a vast improvement in headaches and migraines. This was attributed to the fact that a lot of headaches and migraines can be caused by tensions in the muscles of face. When botox relaxed those muscles, patients reported much fewer headaches and migraines. In a digital world, people are constantly staring at screens and many are causing a lot of unwanted tension. Botox can definitely help with this problem! At MDRN Dental, we offer complimentary botox consultations in the Westchase District; contact us to schedule!
