Medical Benefits of Botox

When someone says Botox, most people immediately think of the cosmetic uses of the medicine – smoothing fine lines and wrinkles to give a more youthful appearance. Did you know that Botox is more than just an aesthetic treatment? We started offering Botox her at Jordan Dentistry in Cumming, Georgia for more than simply its cosmetic benefits. Botox offers relief from all of the following medical issues:

2Cervical Dystonia

Also known as spasmodic torticollis, cervical dystonia leads to head tilting, neck pain, and neck muscle spasms. It is a disorder of the nerves that causes muscles to contract and spasm on their own.

Blepharospasm

More commonly known as eyelid spasms, this is a muscle disorder that causes the muscles around your eyes to involuntarily spasm.

Strabismus

This muscle disorder causes the eyeball to pull to the side when the muscles around the eye tighten. It can cause patients to appear cross eyed.

Sever Underarm Sweating

Botox has been used to treat patients that have severe underarm sweating that has not responded well to topical medicines and antiperspirants.

Chronic Migraines

Many adults suffer from chronic migraines with over 15 headaches a month. Botox can be used as a preventative treatment in these cases to reduce the number of chronic migraines and headaches.

Botox is more than simply a cosmetic procedure. It can help patients get a control on all of these facial muscle related disorders. Call Jordan Dentistry today to schedule your Botox consultation in Cumming, Georgia!
