In search of Botox near Toronto, IL? Botox for TMJ is in your neighborhood at Renken Dentistry in Springfield, IL. TMJ is short for temporomandibular joint. There’s one on each side, and they attach your jaw to the bottom of your skull. The muscles near them are what allow you to open and close your mouth. This joint is directly associated with many cases of jaw tension and pain. Which is why we offer Botox near Toronto, IL.
Botox is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and the jaw tension and pain that comes with it. When injected into facial muscles that are experiencing soreness and discomfort, Botox will relieve TMJ and jaw tension. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, or jaw clenching and, in cases of severe stress, Botox can even minimize lock jaw. To accompany your Botox treatment, we can also create a mouth guard for you that will help minimize unconscious movement while you sleep, ultimately sparing you some pain during the day. Botox works to relieve TMJ by making muscles unable to engage in the powerful, often unconscious movement of the jaw that produces headaches and pain that the patient is experiencing.
Botox for TMJ disorders and jaw tension is usually quick, straightforward, and effective. Most procedures only take between ten to thirty minutes. In most cases our patients return to normal activities immediately. You’re able to drive home or back to work after your appointment.
