"I am a fairly new patient and I am blown away by the professionalism and caring nature of this entire practice.My first appointment was a consultation with Mark. He explained exactly what needed to be done and came up with a treatment plan. Then I sat down with Laurie to go over all of the costs.I went back for a cleaning and I was dreading it! I have very sensitive teeth and one of the last dentists I went to was not even able to clean them. I have to admit that I started off with a bad attitude but she put me at ease. She was the most kind and gentle hygienist I’ve ever been to in my life. Plus, I love those flat screen TVs they have with Netflix and other channels. It makes a big difference to be distracted and entertained. Everyone in the office is smiling and friendly! The office is nicely decorated and the location is easy to find. I’m so glad that my search for a fantastic dentist has ended!"- L.F. / Google / Mar 14, 2019
How Can Botox Help?
The temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) is located on both sides of your head at the point where the jawbone meets your skull and is used during talking, eating, swallowing, and other everyday activities. If this joint becomes overworked through excessive teeth grinding, you may suffer severe headaches, as well as sharp pain in your jaw areas. BOTOX® relieves jaw tension by making muscles unable to engage in the powerful, often unconscious movement of the jaw that produces headaches and pain.
The BOTOX® alternative treatment for TMJ disorders and jaw tension is usually quick, easy and effective. The procedue takes about 30 minutes in our office and most patients have noticeable improvement within two days to a week after wards.
The amount of Botox needed for TMJ treatment can vary due to each patients needs. Give us a call at 404-255-6782 for a free consultation to see how Botox could help you!
