TMJ Treatment

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) can cause debilitating pain and discomfort, affecting the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. Traditional treatments often include physical therapy, medications or splints, but an alternative we use at Heritage Dental Arts is medical BOTOX®. This innovative approach offers unique benefits for those seeking relief from TMJ-related symptoms.

If you experience persistent jaw pain, difficulty chewing or recurring headaches, you may benefit from our TMJ treatment in Gainesville, Virginia. This treatment is particularly effective for individuals with muscle-related TMJ issues, as BOTOX injections can target and relax the overactive muscles contributing to the discomfort.

During the procedure, our dentist will administer BOTOX injections directly into the affected jaw muscles. The process is relatively quick and minimally invasive, providing patients with a convenient alternative to more invasive treatments. Results typically become noticeable within a few days to a week, with the full effects lasting for several months.

Medical BOTOX for TMJ treatment offers targeted relief by reducing muscle tension and spasms, alleviating pain and improving jaw function. Unlike some traditional treatments, BOTOX provides a non-surgical option with fewer side effects, allowing individuals to resume normal activities shortly after the procedure. Additionally, this approach can be a valuable complement to other TMJ therapies, offering a comprehensive and personalized solution for long-term management.

If you suffer from TMJ and think that medical BOTOX may be the right solution for you, call Heritage Dental Arts at 703-349-0099 to discuss your options with Dr. Zan Pervaiz during a consultation.
