While botox has become associated with cosmetic treatment, when introduced in the medical community, it was used to treat various medical conditions such cross-eyed (strabismus) and abnormal muscle spasms of the eyelids (blepharospasm).
Modern medical science has pushed the boundaries of botox usage, giving it many various applications and this includes dental applications.
While the term botox is frequently thrown around, few know what botox is. There is a public assumption that botox is a wrinkle treatment drug. Botox is neurotoxin produced by bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum. The toxin itself is called botulinum toxin.
Botulinum toxin is quite poisonous and a single gram can easily kill a person. Botox, used in tiny concentrations, can prevent nerve cells from reaching the muscle. This effectively paralyzes and freezes the muscle.
