Botox® Treatment for Headaches, Migraines & TMD Pain
Do you suffer from headaches, migraines, a sore jaw or other painful TMD symptoms? Tsawwassen, BC dentist Dr. Warren Roberts, can use therapeutic levels of botulinum toxin (aka Botox or Dysport) to help alleviate your chronic pain and give you more reasons to smile!
How Botox® for Chronic Pain Works:
The primary mechanism of action of how botulinum toxin relaxes muscle causing wrinkles is well known. Less well known is how botulinum toxin also prevents the release of noxious neuropeptides involved in the chronic inflammatory pain response (secondary mechanism of action) and how it affects CNS desensitization to pain (tertiary mechanism of action). Using therapeutic levels of botulinum toxin, Drs. Roberts can help relieve your painful symptoms such as headache pain, migraines, bruxing, clenching and/or grinding.
The first step is to book an appointment with Dr. Warren Roberts at Roberts Dental & Facial Rejuvenation in South Delta, BC. Dr. Roberts will begin with a comprehensive exam, and will also use an EMG computerized sensor and scanner to measure the actions and reactions of your head and neck muscles. After analyzing your bite, its force and its timing, Dr. Roberts will be able to make determinations and adjustments to achieve your optimum bite balance. Dr. Roberts will carefully review all the information to make a sound diagnosis and treatment plan specifically designed for you. This will include all of the various treatment options to restore your mouth to optimum health and give you your most beautiful smile as well.
Both Drs. Warren and Jan Roberts are recognized as being leaders in the field of botulinum toxin and facial rejuvenation; their educational organization the “Pacific Training Institute for Facial Aesthetics” (PTIFA) is internationally known for training dentists, medical doctors and nurses in the use of Botox® for therapeutic treatment of TMD, as well as for aesthetic purposes. They lead monthly hands-on courses in this field for practitioners across the world.
