Botox® And Juvederm®
People who suffer from TMJ suffer a lot of jaw tension and pain. They often have headaches from grinding and clenching their jaws. Some believe they will never find anything to help because of how bad it can be.
That is why we are dedicated to finding the best way to give TMJ sufferers some relief. We are constantly learning so that we can offer the latest advances in dental medicine to help end your suffering.
BOTOX® has been known to give people relief from TMJ pain. We inject it into the facial muscles that are afflicted with soreness and discomfort. It helps with not only the pain but also the jaw tension.
BOTOX® is very helpful for some of the other symptoms of TMJ. It is often very helpful for headaches, especially those caused by people grinding their teeth or clenching their jaws when they are stressed. It can also help with lockjaw too.
Though BOTOX® is very new and considered experimental, it can be very helpful and may be your best option when it comes to TMJ pain. We can perform the procedure in our office and you should notice improvement within one or two days, though full effect may take up to a week.
If you have any questions about BOTOX® or would like to talk to us about whether it might be a good option for you, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (781) 236-3586.
Many people do not like their facial wrinkles. Many people have a “gummy smile,” meaning they have too much gum covering up most of their teeth. Some people also grind their teeth, giving them headaches and TMJ.
We are dedicated to help our patients who suffer from the above issues. This is why we offer JUVÉDERM®. It is a gel that is injected into your facial tissue to smooth out facial wrinkles around your nose and mouth. It can last up to a year.
JUVÉDERM® also has been shown to have results for our dental patients. We can help to relax hyperactive lip muscles and treat TMJ problems. We can help gummy smiles by relaxing your gum muscles, letting your teeth shine!
Our entire staff is dedicated to your care. All our staff members have studied JUVÉDERM® along with your facial and dental anatomy so that they can apply the right amount of JUVÉDERM® in the right space to give you the results you deserve. It can be a complicated procedure, so you have to go to someone who understands the procedure and is able to get the results you want.
