Therapeutic Botox to Relieve TMD/TMJ Pain

Has Your Jaw Been Giving You Problems?

TMJ/TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) is an unfortunate and painful condition that many people suffer from today. The temporomandibular joint is a particularly unique joint that, while highly flexible in its range of movement, is also quite susceptible to problems and pain.

Do you suffer from the effects of TMD?

If you’ve been putting up with TMD/TMJ pain and wishing you could find a solution that works – Therapeutic Botox© may be able to provide you with the relief you’ve been looking for. Our qualified dentist, Dr. Jared Nabeta, uses Therapeutic Botox© at our dental practice to help our patients experience relief from TMJ/TMD pain and discomfort.

TMD occurs when the TMJ (temporomandibular jaw joint) causes pain to the jaw or surrounding facial muscles. It is believed that certain habits such as bruxism (teeth grinding), teeth clenching, habitually biting down on hard objects or fingernails, arthritis in the jaw joint, or ill-fitted dentures or dental appliances contribute to the troublesome condition. TMD is even thought to be triggered by things like facial trauma and malocclusion (an uneven bite).

How does Therapeutic Botox for TMD/TMJ Pain work?

Botulinum toxin type A (Botox©) is able to prevent the abrupt or forceful movements of the jaw that are involuntary – the same movements that are known to contribute to jaw, neck and facial pain, as well as tension headaches. During your Therapeutic Botox© for TMD/TMJ pain treatment, the medicine will be safely injected into the specific facial muscle areas requiring attention. This will typically take 10-30 minutes, depending on how much is needed.
