Solutions to TMJ-TMD
We offer solutions to TMJ-TMD, which can cause chronic facial, neck, and jaw pain, and headaches. Botox is now being offered at our practice as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain.
When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, BOTOX can even minimize lock jaw. BOTOX treatment for these conditions can be extremely effective.
How does BOTOX treat Jaw Tension and TMJ Disorder?
Located on both sides of the head at the point where the jawbone meets the skull, the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) is used during talking, eating, swallowing, and other everyday activities. If this becomes overworked through excessive teeth grinding, a person may suffer severe tension headaches, as well as sharp pain in the jaw. BOTOX® relieves jaw tension by making muscles unable to engage in the powerful, often unconscious movement of the jaw that produces headaches and pain.
The BOTOX® alternative treatment for TMJ disorders and jaw tension is usually quick, straightforward, and effective. A non-surgical procedure, BOTOX® injections are administered at our practice. Most patients experience noticeable improvement within one or two days of their first treatment, although relief can take up to a week.
