Treating TMJ

Botox can be used to treat the pro-mandibular joint or TMJ disorders. TMJ disorders are caused by an overworked or displaced TMJ, often due to teeth grinding. This can cause tension headaches, sharp pain, or even lock jaw. Using Botox to treat TMJ can ease the tension and pain in the jaw by immobilizing the muscles used in often unconscious grinding or other powerful movements of the jaw that can cause pain and headaches. Many patients experience relief as soon as the first treatment or within a few days.

TMJ, otherwise known as a temporomandibular joint disorder, is a common problem that affects many people all over the world. It is characterized by grinding or clenching teeth, movement of the disc between the ball and socket of that joint, and arthritis. Over time, TMJ can develop, which can cause severe pain or discomfort in many cases. Thankfully, there are solutions, and we can offer some of the most effective treatment options around for our patients.

Botox and other dermal fillers can be used to treat the pro-mandibular joint or TMJ disorders. TMJ disorders are caused by an overworked or displaced TMJ, often due to teeth grinding. This can cause tension headaches, sharp pain, or even lockjaw. Using Botox to treat TMJ can ease the tension and pain in the jaw by immobilizing the overused muscles. Unconscious grinding, habitual gum chewing, and other repetitive movements of the jaw can cause pain and headaches. Many patients experience relief as soon as the first treatment is completed and within a few days. If you are concerned that you might have a TMJ problem, then don't hesitate to get in touch with us as soon as possible for a consultation.

Easing Headaches

Tension headaches are often caused by a constant muscle contraction in one area of the face, often in the jaw. Dental Botox treatments can help create a partial paralysis in those muscles that cause tension headaches. Botox is also effective in helping to ease migraine headaches.

In fact, botox and other dermal fillers have been proven highly effective for the easement of many types of migraines.

Decreasing Orofacial Pain

Another benefit of Botox is that it can block nerve signals and relax muscle pain. This is useful in helping patients with chronic orofacial pain. Botox is injected into the trigger areas of the pain, essentially muting the neurotransmitters that notify the brain that the body is in pain.

The treatment options that are available for various kinds of pain depend on what type of pain you are experiencing. Still, there is always going to be a solution that we can try, so you don't need to feel as though you have to endure pain. We can help to distinguish what kind of pain you have, and with a proper diagnosis, you will be able to find relief. If dental treatment isn't going to work for you, we won't recommend one. You may need to see your doctor, and we can help you make that decision.

Obviously, that pain might be caused by any number of factors, usually like a simple toothache. But, one of the significant benefits of Botox is that it can block nerve signals and relax muscle pain.
