Therapeutic Injectables in Cairns
New advancements in injectable therapy help to provide more (virtually) pain-free options for patients
Many patients relate dental technology to pieces of equipment like high-tech lasers and 3D printing. However, technology goes much further than that. Recent advancements in medical technology have developed new products and techniques that are used every day in dental offices.
Therapeutic injectable use has become a much more popular form of oral therapy in recent times, especially in a dental environment. As dentists spend each day working on the inside of clients’ mouths, they know facial anatomy better than most.
What can therapeutic injectables treat?
The team at Future Dental use safe and effective muscle relaxants to treat a range of issues including:
- Orofacial and craniofacial pain
- Neck and shoulder pain through the trapezius, splenius capitis, and deeper strap muscles of the neck
- TMJ pain
- TMD/MPD (temporomandibular disorders)
- Myofascial pain dysfunction
- Tension-type headaches
It can also be used in the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia (for which you will be referred to a Neurologist), a debilitating painful form of nerve pain and nerve tissue regeneration, as well as other nerve injuries. It has also shown great results for intra and peri-oral wound healing.
Additionally, therapeutic injections can also have the cosmetic benefit of reducing the appearance of gummy smiles in a quick timeframe.
How do muscle relaxants work?
Muscle relaxants are an injection treatment option that is designed to calm down the skeletal muscles which are accountable for voluntary movement.
Muscle relaxants can either act directly on a muscle (peripheral) or centrally, but most are central acting when it comes to relieving pain. However, we aren’t entirely sure how they do their job. The relaxants act directly on a muscle, but they don’t act on it directly to relax the muscle. In other words, they don’t stop the release or crossing of the neurotransmitter, so the muscle is still able to work ever so slightly.
