Dr. Dolgos Explains TMJ Disorder
How BOTOX Can Treat TMJ Disorder In One Quick Session at Our Buffalo-Area Office
We constantly try to move our jaw into a comfortable position, even subconsciously. When we have a hard time finding that comfortable position, it creates tension in the surrounding muscles and the jaw joint. Over time, this tension can lead to TMJ disorder and cause a variety of health issues.
BOTOX injections relax your muscles and help prevent them from tensing up again. As a result, BOTOX can treat symptoms caused by tension in your jaw, like chronic headaches and teeth grinding. This treatment can be especially effective for patients who suffer from stress or have trouble relaxing in their day-to-day life.

Benefits of BOTOX for TMJ
BOTOX injections block nerve signals that cause muscle contractions. As a result, the muscles relax and discomfort is reduced.
Jaw pain can interfere with simple functions like biting and chewing. BOTOX reduces pain, allowing you to use your jaw normally once again.
Better Dental Health
BOTOX can put a stop to chronic teeth grinding and clenching, conditions that can lead to dental erosion over time.
