Disorders of the temporomandibular joints, or TMJ, can cause jaw pain, headaches, and tooth issues from constant grinding, and can easily interfere with common activities throughout your everyday life. You may be surprised to learn that Botox injections can be a simple and highly effective treatment for TMJ, and one that your local Cedar Park, TX Renken Dentistry office can provide you. For patients without dental insurance, we offer a Health Assurance program starting as low as $25 a month to help you offset the cost.
Providing TMJ Relief
By safely making jaw muscles unable to engage in the powerful and often unconscious movements of teeth grinding or tensing, Botox injections for TMJ provide relief for the common symptoms of painful headaches and jaw soreness within just one week of treatment. The Botox injections are done right at your Cedar Park, TX Renken Dentistry office — no invasive surgery or hospital stay necessary. In fact, the entire procedure takes only 10 to 30 minutes and the injection process gives most patients only minor discomfort that can be further minimized by numbing the injection sites with cold packs or anesthetic cream. Most patients experience relief from their muscle soreness and tenderness almost immediately, and since the treatment is non-invasive, most who get the procedure done can return to their daily activities without any issue. Side-effects are minimal and short-lived in the rare event that they occur at all.
