What is Botox?
Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) is the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults. Botox works to temporarily suppress hyperactive muscles to prevent traumatic, repetitive activity. It does not cause loss of sensation or numbness of the affected muscles. Treatment usually causes minimal discomfort and takes minutes. Botox is a preventative treatment that is injected by our doctors every three or four months.
Suffering from TMD?
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the temporal bone of the skull to the lower jaw and allows you to open and close your mouth. When the joint is injured or damaged, it can lead to a painful condition called temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). The pain associated with this disorder is commonly due to hyperactivity of the jaw muscles. TMD can sometimes be treated at home with over the counter pain medications, eating soft foods, and avoiding extreme jaw movements. If pain persists, Botox can be used as an effective alternative treatment.
