Botox is the brand name for the medically beneficial form of a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. Though most well-known for its anti-wrinkling effects, Botox is also used for many other medical treatments. In dentistry, Botox is used as a treatment for several conditions, including temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) as well as excessive teeth clenching and grinding. It has also been shown to be effective as a treatment for hypersalivation.
In other fields of medicine, Botox has also been used to treat muscle spasms, headaches, and vocal cord dysfunction. Research is ongoing into Botox’s effectiveness to treat injuries and diseases that affect the central nervous system, including multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and cerebral palsy.
