Let’s take a look at how Botox and Derma Fillers can help improve the quality of life for those living with TMJ.
What is TMJ?
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) is an umbrella term that encompasses a wide range of problems related to the jaw joints and muscles. It can cause pain, headaches, earaches, difficulty opening and closing the mouth, popping or clicking sounds when opening or closing the mouth, difficulty chewing, and more. While there are many causes of TMJ, it is often difficult to diagnose because there are so many potential triggers for this condition.
How Does Botox Help?
Botox works by temporarily paralyzing muscles that have become overactive due to bruxism (teeth grinding), stress, or other factors. By relaxing these muscles around the jaw joint, Botox can reduce inflammation and decrease tension in the jaw area. This helps relieve pain associated with TMJ as well as reduce headaches caused by tension in the jaw area. Additionally, Botox can also help prevent teeth grinding or clenching during sleep which can contribute to further complications from TMJ if not addressed properly.
Benefits of Using Botox for TMJ Treatment
One of the biggest benefits of using Botox as a treatment for TMJ is its effectiveness in relieving pain and discomfort quickly and safely. The injection process typically takes less than 10 minutes per session and results are usually seen within two weeks after the first treatment. The effects last up to three months on average and patients report feeling a significant improvement in their quality of life after just one treatment session!
Additionally, this method is non-invasive so there are no risks associated with surgery such as infection or excessive bleeding which makes it an ideal choice for those looking for an effective way to manage their symptoms without major risks or complications.
Dermal Fillers to Treat TMJ
We also offer dermal fillers as a treatment for TMJ. This method involves injecting hyaluronic acid-based fillers into areas affected by the disorder. The fillers provide cushioning and support to muscles around the jaw joints which helps reduce pain and tension in this area.
Dermal filler treatments typically last between 6-9 months and patients report feeling a significant improvement in their quality of life after just one session.
