If you suffer from frequent tension headaches or migraines due to a TMJ disorder or bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching), Dr. Lori Ann Safar may recommend BOTOX® to help relax the muscles of your face and head and relieve your pain. Headaches and migraines often cause significant pain and stress, and interfere with your day-to-day activities and quality of life. We welcome you to contact Celebrity Smile at (858) 481-8688 to schedule your appointment with our caring dentist and find out if BOTOX treatment for migraine headaches in San Diego, California, is right for you.
BOTOX therapy may be recommended to prevent headaches in adults who suffer from chronic migraines 15 or more days each month, or who have headaches lasting four hours or longer each day.
When you receive BOTOX treatment for your chronic migraines, our dentist will inject BOTOX into the area around the pain fibers that cause headaches. The BOTOX will enter the nerve endings in the injection area and work to block the release of the chemicals involved in pain transmission, preventing the activation of the pain networks in the brain.
Please note that while BOTOX will prevent headaches from occurring, it may take several treatments to be effective.
If you have any questions about BOTOX for migraine headaches, and to schedule your consultation with our dentist, please call our office today. We are dedicated to helping you achieve a healthier, pain-free lifestyle!
