How Botox can alleviate the pain of TMJ

Baltimore Dentist - Botox Treatment

Baltimore Dental Care Advice: Do you ever wake up in the morning with a headache and wonder why? Or have a sharp pain in your jaw when trying to talk or chew? You may be clinching your teeth at night and not realize it. The temporo-mandibular joint, which is located on both sides of the head where the jawbone meets the skull; are joints and muscles that allow us to move our jaw up and down as well as side to side. If that joint becomes displaced or overworked due to excessive teeth grinding, a person may start to suffer from tension headaches and may experience sharp pains in the jaw.

Did you know there is an alternative treatment. Botox has been found to help alleviate some of that discomfort by relaxing those muscles and allowing you to sleep or concentrate more clearly?

Most patients will experience a difference within 1 to 2 days after the injections.So why wait any longer; check out our monthly special on Botox treatments and get scheduled today!
