Botox for TMJ Treatment

Many people suffer from all different levels of facial pain, whether it is due to stress, headaches, migraines, their bite, or TMJ syndrome. Family Dental Care offers a Botox treatment that can help to relax the facial muscles and eliminate this pain.

What Is TMJ Syndrome?

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) occurs when there is a derangement in the normal functioning of the temporomandibular joint. Repetitive behaviors like teeth grinding, gum chewing, jaw clenching, and nail biting can lead to enlargement of the head and neck muscles and cause significant pain or impairment. Symptoms often include migraines, headaches, teeth grinding, facial pain, earaches, and tooth damage.

How Can Botox Help?

When used to treat TMJ, Botox is injected into the affected head and neck muscles to temporarily block the nerve signals that cause muscle movements. This relaxes the muscles to help reduce or eliminate any facial pain a patient may be experiencing. These injections only take a few minutes and will remain effective for up to 3 months. With a series of Botox treatments, your muscles will be retrained to relax and your symptoms will disappear for longer periods of time. In addition to treating TMJ, Botox will help to reduce wrinkles and add volume to the face. Now you can look great and feel great with one simple treatment!
