BOTOX can treat TMJ.
TMJ BOTOX Treatment at Crow River Dental
Did you think that BOTOX treatment is only used to hide wrinkles? Think again! Because BOTOX is a muscle relaxer, it has other therapeutic purposes.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jawbone to your skull. When it doesn’t move properly or if you have a habit of clenching your teeth, TMJ disfunction can be the result—causing pain in the joint and in your jaw muscles. If you have ongoing symptoms of TMJ disorder, TMJ treatment using BOTOX injections can temporarily block nerve transmission, allowing the muscles to relax and providing relief of TMJ and facial pain.
In addition to TMJ treatment, BOTOX can also be used to smooth out wrinkles in your face, not just due to age, but also the loss of vertical dimension due to tooth wear or tooth loss.
The use of BOTOX in dentistry can also help improve smiles that shows too much gum tissue. If these facial features are a concern, BOTOX injections can help.
