Therapeutic Botox©

You Don’t Have To Suffer With Headaches, Neck Or Shoulder Pain

Botox Is NOT Just For Wrinkles

Many people suffer symptoms such as headaches, neck and shoulder pain, and ringing in the ears. These problems are often associated with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

If left untreated, the grinding and clenching associated with TMJ can cause damage to the teeth, gums, and jaw joints. We are excited to offer treatment of these Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) symptoms with Therapeutic Botox© injections.

Botox© is most commonly used to stop the facial muscles that can cause wrinkles from moving. It’s also been proven effective at relaxing the muscles in the jaw that cause some of the common symptoms of TMJ, including clenching and grinding of the teeth. The procedure typically provides relief within a week, with results lasting for 4 months.

You may be suffering from TMJ if you are experiencing:

  • Pain in the shoulder, jaw, and neck;
  • Clicking or popping when moving your jaw;
  • Migraine headaches;
  • Ringing in the ears.

Benefits of Therapeutic Botox©

One of the most common benefits of the procedure is the reduction in the frequency and intensity of your jaw clenching. It reduces the damage to your gums, teeth, and jaw joint, and decrease the pain and discomfort in your facial muscles.

Also, only the injected areas are affected, and results are typically visible within 24 – 48 hours. With multiple treatments, the injected muscles may deteriorate, allowing you to go longer between treatments.

Candidates for Therapeutic Botox©

The ideal candidate:

  • Is between the ages of 18 and 65;
  • Experiences TMJ, headaches or other facial/dental muscle disorder;
  • Is looking for a short- to long-term solution;
  • Wants non-surgical treatment;
  • Is not afraid of needles;
  • Is in good health;
  • Is not pregnant or nursing.

Therapeutic Botox© Injections

The Procedure: Therapeutic Botox© is a simple, non-surgical procedure, the length of which depends on the number of injections needed. It is typically completed within 10-20 minutes.

Pain: The pain associated with this procedure is caused by the injections, but it is usually brief and minimal. Some patients have compared it to a slight prick or poke.

Recovery: Patients are typically able to return to normal activities immediately. However, the injected area should not be rubbed or massaged, and physical activity should be limited for a time.

After-Effects: Muscle tenderness will begin to disappear almost immediately. There may be some mild temporary numbness, redness, or bruising around the injection sites.
