Dental implants are the next best thing to your healthy, natural teeth. Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth. A dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth. Because a dental implant will replace your tooth root, the bone is better preserved, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.
Increasingly, BOTOX® is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX® relieves TMJ, jaw tension, and teeth grinding for many patients. A non-surgical procedure, the treatment requires no hospital stay. Most patients experience noticeable improvement within one or two days of their first treatment, although relief can take up to a week.
