What are therapeutic neuromodulators?
Therapeutic neuromodulators are injectables that can gently alter your neural pathways and relax your muscles. Commonly known for smoothing out lines and wrinkles, it can also treat a number of orthodontic issues and health problems!
Results from treatment usually last around three to four months. After that, you can schedule touch-ups with Dr. Todor whenever you want! He is highly skilled at using neuromodulators, and has studied at both the American and International Academies of Facial Aesthetics.
Because Dr. Todor has extensive training in facial anatomy of your teeth, bones, nerves, and muscles, he is a natural choice for administering treatment with therapeutic neuromodulators.
How are therapeutic neuromodulators used in orthodontics?
Therapeutic neuromodulators can be used to treat a number of issues, including TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder), grinding, clenching, chronic headaches, and even gummy smiles!
If you are suffering from any of those issues, it’s a good idea to schedule a complimentary consultation with our team to learn your options for treatment. Dr. Todor can provide neuromodulators on their own, or in conjunction with our other orthodontic treatments!
How does it work? Well, if you have issues with TMJ or grinding, injecting a small amount of neuromodulator into your jaw can relax the muscles and provide much-needed relief. This will have no effects on your speech or eating functions.
If you have chronic headaches, injecting therapeutic neuromodulators into your forehead can greatly reduce the frequency and severity of your attacks.
And, we can inject neuromodulators into your upper lip to minimize the appearance of your guns, if a gummy smile is of concern to you. We can even do this in conjunction with laser treatment to contour your gum line altogether!
