Bristol Park Dental Recommends Botox for TMD Relief
Many dentists treat temporomandibular joint disorders (also called TMJ disorders or TMD) and bruxism with night guards or splints, which are very helpful, but at Bristol Park Dental, Colchester, or Williston, VT or the surrounding areas and are looking for relief for TMJ discomfort, we can help.
How Does Botox Work?
BOTOX and filler injections relieve pain caused by TMJ disorders and bruxism by relaxing the muscles in your face, which prevents jaw tension, clenching, and teeth grinding. This muscle relaxation helps to relieve pain in your jaw, neck, and shoulders, in addition to reducing the occurrence of migraines and headaches. It can also help protect your teeth from damage due to pressure or grinding.
After your Botox treatment, there is minimal recovery time and you can immediately and easily resume your day-to-day activities. If you are interested in scheduling Botox treatment or if you simply have some questions, please give us a call at (802) 453-7700 or email us.
