If you suffer from TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain, you might consider anti-wrinkle injections as an alternative treatment. Anti-wrinkle injections relieve TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. When injected into the affected facial muscles the injections can relieve soreness and discomfort, reduce headaches caused by teeth grinding, and can minimise lock jaw in severe cases of TMJ.
The TMJ is used very often during talking, eating, swallowing and other everyday activities. If you are experiencing tension headaches or sharp pains in your jaw, it’s possible that your TMJ has become displaced or overworked (eg through excessive teeth grinding). Our anti-wrinkle injection treatment relaxes jaw muscles to avoid the heavy, and often subconscious movement that produces TMJ pain.
Anti-wrinkle injections offer a fast, simple, and effective treatment for TMJ discomfort and most patients notice an improvement within 1-2 days days of their first treatment. In more extreme cases, full relief can take up to one week. To explore whether anti-wrinkle injections are suitable for your situation, book a consultation with Dr. Huy Tran at Ashmore Dental.
Note: TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder) was previously known as TMJD (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction). See our page on TMJ Disorders for more information.
