How We Treat Jaw Pain with Xeomin®

A treatment with Xeomin® involves an injection of the product into the facial muscles. Xeomin®, a trade name for botulinum toxin (like Botox®), blocks transmitters between motor nerves in the facial muscles. The muscles weaken and contract less, which reduces the amount of stress on the teeth and jaw. After this treatment, patients usually experience pain relief for 3-5 months, but the results vary from person to person. During this time, most patients report that their jaw pain was significantly or virtually eliminated. However, once the effect wears off, patients will need to return for another treatment. Enrichment Skin Solutions has a great track record of effectively treating bruxism-related pain with Xeomin®. If you’re suffering from pain or discomfort, don’t wait. Let our expert give you the relief you deserve.
