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!
