HOW DOES BOTOX® TREAT TMJ DYSFUNCTION?

The first step is to undergo a consultation with the dentist. We will determine whether or not you are a candidate for treatment by evaluating your condition.

Botox® is injected into the affected head and neck muscles. The active ingredient in Botox® blocks nerve signals and relaxes the muscles that contribute to facial pain.

Although Botox® treatment only takes a few minutes, the procedure can produce results that last as long as three months. After a series of treatments, the patient may be able to train the facial muscles to relax.

A potential added plus of Botox® treatment is a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles.

ABOUT BOTOX®

Botox is FDA approved to temporarily treat wrinkles and has been used for cosmetic purposes for nearly 20 years. It is also FDA approved for the temporary relief of headaches and can be used as TMJ therapy to alleviate TMJ pain.

amazing staff, I absolutely love Dr. Konwick! She has amazing bedside/patient manners. She is super gentle and makes you feel at ease. I was always hesitant to go to a dental appointment until I had Dr, Konwick work on two cavities I had. Vassey Dental has a great location, they are super gracious, and the office is always incredibly clean. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes to be seen.
