While Botox treatments and dermal fillers offer cosmetic benefits for people worried about wrinkling, these services can also ease discomforts associated with TMJ disorder. Based on our evaluation of your condition, we can let you know if this is recommended to help with your relief.
Both Botox and dermal fillers are capable of easing tension in facial muscles and jaw joints, both of which are adversely affected by TMJ disorder and other conditions. The concerns we can address with these treatments include TMJ disorder as well as:
- Bruxism (habitual teeth grinding)
- Cerebral Palsy
Botox refers to botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin and protein known for its therapeutic potential since the 19th century. Dermal fillers involve the injection of bovine collagen. With Botox, we can help you limit the formation of new wrinkles, while dermal fillers help with those that are already present. In addition to making positive cosmetic changes, we can help ease the ongoing pain in your face and jaw for an extended period of time.
While Botox and dermal fillers attract many for their cosmetic benefits, they also provide welcome relief for those who suffer from TMJ disorder and other ailments that affect the jaw and facial muscles.
