BOTOX® Cosmetic Can Erase Lines And Wrinkles
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a minimally invasive treatment developed for the lines and wrinkles that occur around the lips, eyes and forehead as we age. The injections relax the muscles that cause wrinkles in these areas. At SK Dental Associates, we have found BOTOX® Cosmetic to be so beneficial to patients that we now offer this convenient wrinkle treatment in the comfort of our office. BOTOX® is extremely effective, and the results will last for months. BOTOX® Cosmetic is suitable for both men and women.
BOTOX® Treatment For Jaw Muscle Tension And TMJ – Related Pain
BOTOX® is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX® relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and in cases of severe stress, BOTOX® can even minimize lock jaw.
How Does BOTOX® Treat Jaw Tension And TMJ Disorder?
Located on both sides of the head at the point where the jawbone meets the skull, the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) is used during talking, eating, swallowing, and other everyday activities. If this joint becomes displaced or is overworked through excessive teeth grinding, a person may suffer severe tension headaches, as well as sharp pain in the jaw. BOTOX® relieves jaw tension by making muscles unable to engage in the powerful, often unconscious movement of the jaw that produces headaches and pain.
Stop clenching at its source or weaken the muscles. Unfortunately it is not currently possible to stop clenching at its source without powerful medications that make it impractical. However weakening the muscles is a very simple and safe thing to do. One single BOTOX® injection into each masseter muscle will do the trick. One of the factors about BOTOX® is that it is temporary, so you can try it without permanent effects. Within days of the BOTOX® injection, you can stop wearing your night guard or splint, until the BOTOX® wears off.
The BOTOX® alternative treatment for TMJ disorders and jaw tension is usually quick, straightforward, and effective. A non-surgical procedure, BOTOX® injections are administered in the office. Most patients experience noticeable improvement within one or two days of their first treatment, although complete relief may take up to a week.
