TMD or Temporomandibular joint dysfunction refers to numerous conditions that affect the joints in your jaw or the area around it. Different people have different symptoms, as some may experience tightness in facial muscles while others migraines. There might be people who feel both. We understand the pain this condition can give you, so at PS Dental, we can give you instant relief from TMD discomfort with the help of BOTOX® treatment. If you or someone you love is suffering from this condition, then consider visiting our practice in Tigard, OR.
BOTOX® has become a quite popular way of treating TMJ and jaw pain. As our dentist administers BOTOX®, the strained muscles on your face causing discomfort relaxes. You can feel so relieved from the tension caused by headaches or migraines due to teeth grinding or other issues like the misaligned bite that puts pressure upon the temporomandibular joint. For people who have been suffering from TMD for a long time, BOTOX® can heal you and provide quick relief.
TMJs are parts that connect the lower jaw and the skull. They play an essential role in our day to day to life. You use them while speaking, chewing, and even drinking. When these joints are inflamed because of too much stress or improper movement, it can cause unbearable headaches or reduce the movement of the jaw's motion, leading to pain.
With BOTOX®, a non-invasive treatment, we can treat the exact affected areas. You can feel relieved in no time effectively without any complications. The process is so comfortable that you don't even need sedation.
Most of our patients who have had BOTOX® therapy see remarkable change and comfort within the first few days. The area to be treated is specifically focused on alleviating the pain so it doesn't affect the other parts of your body. It also adds extra benefits by improving your appearance.
Soon after the therapy, you may feel a little soreness, redness, or tenderness in the treated area. You can continue with your daily routine, as it has a very low chance of any complications.
