You don't have to suffer anymore!
How Does TMJ Pain Develop?
Your temporomandibular joints are found on each side of your face, right in front of your ears. They allow you to move your jaw so you can talk, chew, swallow, and speak. Because the joint is used so much, it experiences wear and tear, often leading to damage and sometimes debilitating pain.
TMJ disorder symptoms include pain in and around the jaw, head, face, and temples, and even the neck, shoulders, and ears. Patients sometimes find it difficult to open and close their mouths and often report clicking, crunching, or popping when they chew or yawn.
Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau not only smooth away lines and wrinkles, they significantly help with TMJ disorder. When injected, the neurotoxins derived from botulinum toxin Type A relax the muscles, relieving any pain or discomfort. The results are outstanding, especially for patients whose TMJ problems result from stress disorders or from teeth grinding and clenching, a condition known as bruxism.
The TMJ treatment procedure is virtually painless and requires no recovery time, meaning you'll resume your daily activities right away. Some patients find relief after one session, while others need an additional one or two, depending on the severity of their symptoms. Most patients report a notable improvement in their discomfort after one or two weeks, with results lasting four to six months. With repeated treatment, the jaw muscles are trained to relax, so the intervals between treatments will increase.
The best way to determine whether injectable neuromodulators are right to treat your TMJ disorder is to consult our medical aesthetic providers at Renewed Medical Health and Beauty Wellness Center. We will evaluate your unique needs and recommend the best treatment protocols to relieve you of your discomfort.
