Dental Implantology Applications
It has been hypothesized to be therapeutically beneficial by allowing osseointegration of implants. Stress from any excessive functional force or any parafunctional habit such as clenching or grinding can cause implant failure. Therefore, botox injection relaxes the chewing muscles and protects the implant, thus providing benefits for osseointegration, that is, the fusion of the implant with the jawbone. Thus, prophylactic (protective) reduction of functional forces during chewing in immediate loading is aimed.
