One More Reason We Love BOTOX: Migraine Relief

Boutique Dentistry for Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville dentist Dr. Kent White is prepared to handle all of the cosmetic goals related to your smile. That’s one reason that Dr. White is pleased to offer BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments to his patients at the Center for Advanced Dentistry in Nashville.

Here's another reason that we love BOTOX®: Headache management.

Diminishing patient pain is always foremost on Dr. White's mind, which is why he favors the conservative approach to patient care that's considered a tenant of holistic dentistry.

BOTOX® is a great solution for patients who want to make the most of their smile makeover and other aesthetic dentistry treatments. But we also know that regular BOTOX® treatments go a long way toward alleviating the pain and suffering experienced by people who live with chronic migraine headaches. It's been more than five years since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved BOTOX® for this purpose.

Roughly 15 percent of the world's population is affected by migraine headaches at some point in their lives. About 12 percent of them suffer from chronic migraines, which means these debilitating headaches surface several times per month.

Migraines are sometimes called "sick headaches" because in addition to the obvious symptom of head and neck pain, they may also manifest with the following symptoms:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light, sound or smell
  • Aura, or visual, sensory, verbal or behavioral disturbances
