When we hear about Botox®, the first thing that often comes to mind is its role in erasing wrinkles and fine lines, helping people achieve a more youthful appearance. But did you know that Botox® has therapeutic benefits beyond cosmetic enhancement? One such remarkable application is the treatment of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ).
For a smile that looks great and functions at its best
At Dental Aesthetics, our professional team provides skilled and experienced care to help every patient enjoy the benefits of a beautiful smile that looks, feels, and functions at its best. We understand the complexities of oral and facial anatomy and what's needed to support pain-free, harmonious function. Our practice offers comprehensive dental care, including the diagnosis and treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ).
The therapeutic power of Botox®
For many patients with TMJ issues, Botox® offers a non-invasive and effective way to alleviate symptoms. By temporarily blocking nerve signals to the muscles at the injection site, Botox reduces the muscle tension and spasms that contribute to and exacerbate TMJ symptoms. It effectively alleviates TMJ discomfort, limitations, and other associated symptoms.
With Botox treatment from our office, individuals with TMJ typically regain jaw mobility, wider opening, more effortless closing, and more comfortable chewing and speaking.
Besides offering a non-invasive, non-surgical approach to care, Botox® treatment for TMJ disorders is also relatively quick and painless. Most patients can resume their normal activities shortly after their appointment.
There’s no time like the present!
