Botox for TMJ Disorders
Get Relief from Jaw Pain
Botox can be used to help treat jaw pain caused by TMJ. The temporomandibular joint is a small joint that connects the jaw to the skull, and is located underneath the ear. If it becomes damaged or inflamed, TMJ disorders can cause pain, jaw locking, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Botox can be used to treat some cases of TMJ caused by overactive muscles, providing you with relief.
Botox for Bruxism Treatments
Teeth grinding (bruxism) affects millions of Americans. It occurs when you clench or grind your teeth uncontrollably, often at night, and can eventually lead to issues like TMJ, damage to your teeth, and jaw soreness and pain. Botox can be injected into the jaw muscles to relax them and help prevent grinding, preserving your teeth and oral health.
Where Can I Get Botox
While many estheticians offer Botox in the area, it’s a better idea to turn to a dentist in Brentwood like Dr. Will Jones. Dentists have a deep understanding of the anatomy of facial and oral muscles, making them the best option for both cosmetic and medical Botox to treat issues like migraines, TMJ, and teeth grinding.
