Therapeutic Botox: Treatment for TMJ
When you hear the word Botox, the first thing that would come to your mind is that it helps slow down the aging process. However, even before the cosmetic use of Botox for wrinkles and fine lines, it was used by doctors to treat a wide range of health problems, which includes TMJ disorders.
Here at Brown’s Line Dental, we are proud to offer the Therapeutic Botox for patients with TMJ disorders. This treatment is nonsurgical. The duration of the treatment will only last for 10 to 30 minutes per session.Your dentist will decide the number of Botox injections for your treatment.
Discomfort or minimal pain will be experienced during the injection sessions, but your dentist will prescribe a numbing cream or suggest a cold pack to ease the pain. Usually, as early as one or two days, you will feel some symptoms relief, but it takes more days to feel relief from TMJ symptoms.
Right after the injection treatment, patients can return to their regular tasks, but special instructions are recommended.
The entire treatment will typically require at least three injection sessions for several months, or sometimes it depends on your condition. If you have TMJ disorder and you want to relieve your jaw pain, visit us at our dental office in Etobicoke. Our trained dentists can help you feel better using our Therapeutic Botox treatment.
