TMJ Treatment Through Therapeutic Botox
Your temporomandibular joint, otherwise known as your TMJ, consists of powerful muscles that connect your jawbone to your skull on either side of your face. It is activated during everyday activities such as talking, eating, swallowing or yawning. When your TMJ is overworked or becomes displaced, it can cause tension headaches or jaw pain. Teeth grinding is also associated with TMJ pain.
BOTOX® has emerged as a new, effective and alternative method to treating TMJ. By injecting the muscles in the jaw with the therapeutic effects of BOTOX®, we can relieve you of your pain, headaches and discomfort. The treatment is quick, straightforward and requires no surgery. Your BOTOX® treatment can be administered in only one appointment, and you may feel relief in as little as three to five days! With BOTOX® treatment, we can eliminate your headaches and even minimize lockjaw.
