You might not expect your dentist to offer Botox services, but applications for Botox go beyond cosmetic treatments. If you suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder that causes you discomfort and affects your ability to perform normal daily functions like eating, drinking, talking, and laughing, you may be a good candidate for Botox treatments offered by the trained professionals at Fine Dentistry of Downtown Orlando. What can therapeutic Botox treatments do for you?
The temporomandibular joint connects your jawbone to your skull on either side of your mouth and acts like a sliding hinge to allow you to chew, speak, laugh, and enjoy a wide range of functionality. When the disc between the bones deteriorates, moves out of alignment or is damaged by disease or some type of trauma (like a blow to the head), the result can be a condition known as TMJ disorder. It’s not always known what causes TMJ disorder.
This condition may be characterized by discomfort or pain in one or both joints, aching in the face and/or ears, difficulty chewing or pain while chewing, and possibly locking of the joint that makes it difficult to open or close the mouth. Naturally, this can be challenging and frustrating for patients.
Treatment with Botox is one solution to explore with the qualified professionals at Fine Dentistry of Downtown Orlando. Botox was used for medical purposes before it was ever used cosmetically, and with proper application, it can be a safe and effective treatment for TMJ disorder, especially for patients that involuntarily clench or grind their teeth.
Botox temporarily relaxes the muscles around the TMJ, delivering 3-4 months of relief from the symptoms of TMJ disorder and allowing you to return to your normal habits, pain-free. If night guards and other traditional treatments aren’t helping and you want immediate and lasting relief, discuss Botox treatment for TMJ with your dental professional at Fine Dentistry of Downtown Orlando.
In addition to offering Botox to treat targeted medical concerns like TMJ disorder, the professionals at Fine Dentistry of Downtown Orlando are also pleased to offer cosmetic treatment options. These include both Botox and facial fillers that can help you to make the most of your gorgeous smile.
