TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, can cause a variety of issues in your everyday life, including headaches and jaw pain. You may also experience grinding teeth, which causes its own host of problems like tooth damage. Botox treatments are now available to Waverly patients at our Springfield, IL office to help alleviate these symptoms. Botox for TMJ is a common treatment for managing pain and relieving tension. Most people know it as the injection used to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles for cosmetic reasons, but the medical use for TMJ uses the same paralytic toxin to relieve jaw pain and headaches. It also works for patients suffering from lockjaw.
If Botox isn’t the preferred option, patients also have the opportunity to have mouth guards, dental splints, or bite correction, all of which can help rectify the issues caused by TMJ. Many of the symptoms occur largely due to overnight grinding or misaligned teeth, and both of these issues can be helped with proper treatment.
Concerned that you don’t have the money to pay for such treatment because you don’t have dental or health insurance? Please call and ask us about our Health Assurance Plan. For a monthly membership fee as low as $25 per person per month, you can receive necessary dental care and significant savings on basic, advanced, and cosmetic dental procedures, including treatment for TMJ.
We gladly provide Botox to Waverly area patients for the treatment of TMJ/TMD. Please give us a call at 217.697.5190 to make an appointment. We look forward to hearing from you!
