Are you suffering from migraines, clenching and grinding your teeth or facial and neck pains in Dallas?
We at DNA Dental have TMJ disorder treatment for you with Botox. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder occurs when there is a derangement of the normal functioning of the Temporomandibular joint. Repetitive behaviors such as teeth grinding or clenching, gum chewing, fingernail or lip and cheek biting, and stress can all lead to the enlargement of the head and neck muscles.
Ultimately, this dysfunction results in significant pain and impairment for many individuals. Our Botox injections in Dallas can help reduce your pain and discomfort and improve your quality of life after just one visit.
Symptoms that Botox Can Treat
When individuals visit our Dallas dental office, they complain of a variety of symptoms, all of which can be treated with Botox injections. Some of these symptoms include:
- Grinding and/or clenching
- Chronic headaches
- Facial pain
- Damage to the teeth
The traditional treatment of TMJ disorder includes the use of bite guards, wisdom teeth extractions and full mouth reconstructions. However, these treatments have limited success. On the other hand, Botox® and trigger point injections in head and neck muscles have been found to be effective treatments for TMJ Syndrome, headaches and facial pain by our Dallas Botox specialist, Dr. Timin.
About BOTOX Cosmetic Injections
If Dr. Timin determines that you are a candidate for therapeutic Botox® treatment, your specific diagnosis, as well as the severity of your condition, will determine how much Botox® you will require. Botox® gets injected into the affected head and neck muscles, blocking the signals that cause muscle movements and essentially relaxes the muscle. It also reduces or eliminates facial pain and bruxism. This makes it perfect for migraine treatment or teeth grinding treatment options.
The process of Botox is simple and doesn’t require anesthesia. Most patients only feel a minor amount of discomfort, if at all. A Botox® injection will only take a few minutes and can last from three to six months. Patients will begin to see results after five to ten days. With a series of treatments, Botox® can retrain your muscles to relax. You will notice your symptoms abate for longer and longer periods of time, and many patients even stop the habit of clenching and grinding their teeth. In addition, you will notice facial aesthetics improving as your facial wrinkles disappear, and your jaw will slim down following the treatment.
