ABOUT BOTOX FOR TMJ
The latest solution for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain at Dallas Dental Concierge is the use of BOTOX injections to relieve discomfort and other symptoms caused by TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction). BOTOX injections for TMD have been approved by the FDA and ADA (American Dental Association) to alleviate the difficult, telltale signs of the disorder, including pain, difficulty chewing, and more. Skilled dentist Dr. Melisa Christian is thrilled to offer this revolutionary treatment to men and women throughout Dallas, TX who suffer from TMD. BOTOX injections work by temporarily freezing the muscles at the targeted area to prevent teeth grinding and clenching. To learn more about how this contemporary technique could diminish your symptoms and improve your quality of life, get in touch with our office and schedule your consultation.
HOW IS IT DONE?
Similar to BOTOX for cosmetic treatments, TMJ services using BOTOX injections only take about 10 – 20 minutes to complete and need a healing period afterward. The majority of people only experience minor discomfort, but this can be alleviated with numbing creams or a topical anesthetic. Most people will notice an improvement in their jaw pain as soon as 1 – 2 days following their treatment with results lasting up to four months. Dr. Christian often advises patients to return to our office periodically throughout the year for touch-up treatments to ensure that they are able to maintain their comfortable life. As individuals receive more injections, they may notice their outcomes lasting longer than four months and can return for follow-ups less often.
