Botox® Treatments in Palm Bay, Florida
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ or TMD) are difficult to diagnose and treat. Symptoms like headaches and earaches often lead doctors to misdiagnose sinus conditions instead of jaw joint and muscle problems. TMD symptoms vary in severity depending on stress levels. Severe stress can lead to teeth grinding, severe earaches, tenderness of facial muscles and lockjaw. The constant pain from these afflictions often impedes everyday activities. For many people, Botox® injections can effectively and painlessly relieve tension in the musculature, reducing jaw pain, headaches, and suffering.
Botox® is commonly used for cosmetic purposes, such as reducing glabellar lines and facial wrinkles. However, it is also being used more frequently as a treatment for TMJ. While some TMJ symptoms may improve on their own, Botox® provides quick and lasting relief for those who do not.
Here are several of the major benefits Botox® offers TMJ sufferers:
- Elimination of headaches caused by nighttime grinding.
- Minimization of lockjaw.
- Reduced discomfort when using the jaw.
- Reduced shoulder and neck pain.
- Substantially reduced jaw tension.
Botox® for Cosmetic Purposes
At Ultimate Smile, we're licensed to use Botox® to treat wrinkles and facial creases. Botox® works for cosmetic purposes by blocking signals from nerves to muscles, preventing muscle contraction. This relaxes and softens forehead wrinkles. This treatment is commonly used for forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines. It can also be used for lip lines, the chin, the corner of the mouth, and the neck. For more information on cosmetic Botox®, please contact us.
