Hewlett Dentist Treats Your TMJ With Botox
At Smiles by Design, our team of professionals believe that treatment of conditions such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder requires the assistance of a dedicated, experienced individual. Dr. Ron Kaminer, DDS is a dentist who has spent many years working with patients suffering from TMD who are ready to seek effective treatment for the pain and discomfort often associated with this condition.
While there are options such as surgery and orthodontics for patients with TMJ, one solution stands out from the rest as it provides a more immediate method for addressing headaches and jaw pain. This is the administration of Botox injections. Botox has been used for decades as a medication for reducing the contraction of muscles. When injected into the muscles around the jaw joint, it can greatly reduce the tension known for becoming problematic for patients. Dr. Ron Kaminer, DDS finds that the results of Botox injections for treating the pain of TMD can be enjoyed for around six months or longer. Reinjection of the medication can help patients maintain their comfort level and improve their overall quality of life when dealing with this condition.
Botox is completely safe and is FDA-approved for the use of treating TMJ/TMD. It is administered during a dental appointment by Dr. Ron Kaminer, DDS. Patients often have injections done at the same time as their six-month check-ups for convenience. While resting in the dental chair, the injections are provided and patients can go about the remainder of their day without interruption.
