Facial injectables for migraines, facial pain and headaches

Botox-dental-pain-management-melbourne26001758Various medical professions refer patients to us who are suffering from debilitating pain, migraines, headaches, or general facial pain. Many patients have tried different specialists and been medicated for years with little relief from the pain. In many cases a dental origin has been found.

New rules set by the Dental Board of Australia allow dentists to use facial injectables to treat conditions that cause facial pain and teeth grinding, such as TMD. Dentists have a more detailed knowledge of the facial nerves and muscles than any other profession. It makes sense that we should be able to relieve our patients with the discretionary use of facial injectables, which has been successfully used overseas.

A full examination must be performed prior to treatment to work out the origin of the problem and the correct application.

If you are affected by this life inhibiting issue call to arrange an appointment.
