Did you know BOTOX® can be used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw pain? Fulp Family Dentistry offers BOTOX as a solution to our patients who suffer from these painful jaw problems.
When injected into facial muscles affected with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX® relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in some cases, BOTOX® can even minimize lock jaw. In fact, evidence indicates BOTOX® can be extremely effective in alleviating many types of jaw pain.
“Jaw pain affects so many people, and it really is extremely painful,” says Dr. Nicole Fulp. “Using BOTOX® injections to relieve that pain is a great stride in dentistry and something we are thrilled to be able to provide for our patients.”
The BOTOX® treatment for TMJ disorders and jaw tension is usually quick, straightforward, and effective. A non-surgical procedure, BOTOX® injections are administered in a dentist’s or doctor’s office, and treatment requires no hospital stay. Most patients experience noticeable improvement within one or two days of their first treatment, although it can take up to a week for the full effect to be felt.
