Botox is a type of toxin that is injected into muscles to prevent their contraction. It is used for both therapeutic and cosmetic purposes. It is derived from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum.

Botox started to be used for the treatment of wrinkles around the eyes and later continued to be used in various medical fields. Botox injections should be performed by expert doctors and specialized dentists. Dentists are specialized in the oral, facial, and surrounding tissues. They often perform facial and jaw Botox treatments due to their knowledge of the anatomy of the oral, facial, and surrounding tissues.

Botox treatment is used for conditions such as bruxism (teeth grinding), clenching (teeth clenching), gummy smile, wrinkles in the forehead and crow’s feet area, and headaches. It can also be used to treat muscle-related asymmetries that occur after orthognathic surgery and problems related to the salivary glands. The procedure takes about 5-15 minutes and is not painful. It should not be used during breastfeeding and pregnancy, in the presence of infections, allergies, or skin disorders.
