Botox Therapy for TMJ Treatment
Dentists administering Botox? What is this all about? Doctors Kaminer and Rosenfeld have been trained in treating patients with Botox and dermal fillers.
You probably know the cosmetic advantages of Botox, but the medication can also help in the treatment of muscular aches and pains associated with TMJ syndrome (jaw pain). When someone grinds their teeth, they very often exhibit muscle pain in the head and neck, as well as headaches and generalized jaw pain. After a thorough examination, treatment may include some Botox injections into the stressed muscles of the face. Botox injections for TMJ treatment are usually combined with oral split therapy.
The injections are painless and patients respond very well to this treatment. Using this therapy, we have even relived patients from years of migraine headaches that were not responding to other therapies. Our investment in our Botox training is an investment in bettering our patients' health, and we are proud to be one of the first offices in NY State to offer this type of therapy for our patients.
