Not only do we want you to have the smile of your dreams, but also the best overall oral health – including the health of your jaw.
The temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) is used for eating, talking, and swallowing. TMJ disorders, commonly known as TMD, cause pain in your jaw joint, ears, and neck. Tension in your jaw muscles, makes movement of the jaw difficult. It can lead to severe headaches, ear pain, lockjaw, and grinding.
BOTOX® is extremely effective at relieving the jaw tension and allowing the muscles to properly engage. Our doctors have advanced training to use BOTOX® as a form of treatment for TMD by injecting the affected areas. The treatment is non-invasive, non-surgical, and usually takes less than 30 minutes – meaning you can resume normal activities following the appointment. Patients experience improvement in 24-48 hours and experience increased relief within one week.
During your initial consultation regarding BOTOX® therapy, the doctor will determine the number of injections needed and any additional follow-up appointments to be scheduled. Ask the doctor about additional treatments for headaches, migraines, and wrinkles, as well as dermal fillers for facial aesthetics.
