Botox (botulinum toxin) is a dental and facial therapeutic agent that has been used for dento-facial applications for the treatment of facial pain, dento-facial therapy, TMJ and occlusal dysfunction for close to twenty years. The use of Botox is taught in a number of prestigious dental universities and is one of the most underused dento-facial therapies which has tremendous potential to providing new services and better treatment outcomes in every dental practice.
