Did you know that Schön Dental offers Botox for Franklin, IL patients? Why would a dentist office provide this procedure? It turns out that it makes perfect sense! Botox has recently been used for the treatment of TMJ. TMJ/TMD stands for temporomandibular joint disorders, which is tightness and tension in the joint that attaches your jawbone to your skull. It can make everyday life hard for patients who experience:
- Pain in their jaw
- Teeth grinding
- Difficulty eating

Botox can be injected into tense facial muscles to alleviate the symptoms of TMJ. Our dentists, who are extremely knowledgeable about face and neck muscles, are the perfect choice for Botox injections. The entire procedure is very fast, usually about 10 minutes. There is no downtime, so you can go back to work or drive home after your Botox injection.
