The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a sliding hinge-like joint connecting your jawbone to your skull, allowing you to talk, chew, and yawn.
TMJ disorders can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the surrounding muscles that may interfere with your daily life.
Treatment options have been limited in the past, but now, muscle relaxing injections can offer quick and efficient relief.
If you’re suffering from any of the following, we are here to help:
- Tenderness, pain, or swelling in the jaw joint
- Pain through the neck and shoulders
- Feeling pain or exhaustion within your facial muscles
- Swelling on either side of the face
- Pain around or in either ear
- Discomfort or pain when chewing
- An uncomfortable bite
- Difficulty opening or closing your mouth, known as locked jaw
- Grating or clicking sounds when you open and close your mouth
Treating Your TMJ Pain Quickly and Effectively with Nonsurgical BOTOX ® and XEOMIN ® Injections
Lake Mary Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry uses BOTOX® and XEOMIN® injections to reduce or eliminate your pain, headaches, and jaw discomfort in as little as one visit.
What is the Procedure Like?
BOTOX® and XEOMIN® treatments for TMJ disorder are quick, non-surgical procedures. Each session takes about 10-15 minutes and involves 1-2 injections per side.
BOTOX® or XEOMIN® will be injected into your jaw muscles, forehead, or temples and will feel like a quick prick. BOTOX® and Xeomin® injections work by blocking some of the chemical signals sent by the nerves that cause muscles to contract. When the muscle is relaxed, your pain dissipates.
Minimal bruising is a possibility, although most patients won’t notice any after-effects. You can reduce your risk of bruising by avoiding ibuprofen and aspirin before your treatment. Wait at least 4 hours to massage your face or exercise after treatment.
Results can take up to 2 weeks to reach full effect. The treatment can last from 3 to 5 months, depending on the individual.
