What Is TMJ?
TMD (temporomandibular disorders), commonly referred to as TMJ, is characterized by significant pain in the jaw and limitation in jaw joint movement. It can affect chewing, talking, swallowing, and in some cases can cause breathing issues.
There are several symptoms that are associated with TMJ, including recurrent facial pain, swelling, constant teeth grinding, facial sensitivity, jaw joint locking, and a limited range of motion in the jaw.
Symptoms vary, but generally can include:
- Pain and tenderness around the jaw, ears, cheeks and neck
- Stiffness in the jaw
- Painful chewing
- Pain while yawning
- Locking of the jaw
- Uncontrolled change of facial expression
- Changes in how the upper and lower teeth fit together
If you are experiencing significant jaw pain or discomfort, our doctors will perform an examination and recommend a treatment option that will work for you.
How Our TMJ Treatments Can Help!
If you are diagnosed with this condition, our doctors can help ease the pain and treat the disfunction with BOTOX®. BOTOX® injections are usually associated with cosmetic practices, but when injected into just the right area, they can relieve the more severe symptoms of TMJ, such as migraines, pain, earaches, jaw tension, earaches, and more.
Though BOTOX® is also used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, your facial appearance will be unaffected by this type of TMJ treatment. The only thing you will notice is a reduction in pain!
