You’ve probably heard of celebrities using Botox® treatment to reverse the signs of aging.
But did you know … it can also be administered to alleviate jaw pain? Yes, that right!
So, how does jaw pain even occur? The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your lower jaw to the base of your skull. It’s what allows you to open and close your mouth. When it’s working properly, you’re happy and don’t experience any problems! But it’s the complete opposite when you develop temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).
There are several reasons why this may happen to you. Grinding or clenching your teeth and misalignment of the jaw joint itself are the two big culprits. The effects of TMJ include facial pain, chronic headaches, and jaw joint sounds when you eat, speak, or yawn.
At Skyview Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we can help you feel better by administering Botox in the face and lips. I’m very happy with how this treatment has provided patients relief from their symptoms. No longer do you have to endure daily TMJ pain, thanks to this option. And best of all … Botox can prevent pain for up to three months!
