Botox therapy can help treat symptoms associated with TMJ, and it can help protect your jaw from serious damage. The temporomandibular joint connects your jaw to your skull. The joint can sometimes sustain damage or become dysfunctional over time, and it can cause serious pain in the jaw area. This can lead to difficulty chewing, speaking, and could cause "clicking" of the jaw. Things that may contribute to TMJ disorder are excessive jaw clenching, teeth grinding, or even facial injury. Without treatment, TMJ disorder can be incredibly painful and may lead to severe headaches and earaches. Long Island Botox therapy helps to treat this condition by reducing muscle spasms in that area and reduce overall facial tension. Botox therapy can also help to relieve pain in the face and head. This treatment can be administered about every 3-4 months to help prevent damage to the temporomandibular joint in the future.
Bruxism refers to frequent teeth grinding and jaw clenching. This condition can lead to the deterioration of healthy teeth and gums, and it can be quite painful. Dentists can use Long Island Botox therapy to help prevent this action in order to save your smile from severe damage. Left untreated, bruxism can cause permanent damage to someone's smile, and it can even lead to TMJ disorder in the future. Botox is an excellent option for anyone with bruxism because it can relieve tension and pain in the facial area.
Some patients may benefit from Botox therapy for orthodontic purposes. Orthodontists are uniquely qualified to administer Botox treatment because they are highly trained in all areas of the facial muscles and skeletal structure. Botox treatments can help to alleviate facial pain, tension, muscle spasms, and it can be used to adjust cosmetic insecurities. If you are considering getting facial fillers or injectables, talk to our orthodontic expert. Long Island Botox therapy may be the right option to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
