Advanced Treatment For Jaw Pain
Botox & TMJ
You may be surprised to find out that Botox is used for more than treating wrinkles, and is in fact a viable option for relieving jaw pain resulting from TMJ. Botox is derived from the botulinum toxin, and has a paralyzing effect on muscles, making it effective for a wide variety of treatments.
TMJ/TMD (Temporomandibular Jaw Disorder) manifests in jaw tension, pain, swelling, or even clicking while you chew, and can be caused by an array of factors, like bruxism (teeth grinding/clenching), or some sort of injury to the jaw. Botox works by paralyzing specific muscle groups to “force” mother muscles to relax. A quick and simple outpatient procedure, most patients feel relief a few days after their Botox treatment.
Restore Your Youthful Smile
As we age, we lose collagen in our skin, causing lines and wrinkles to deepen, making many of us appear older than we feel. Dermal fillers are used to plump up those lines to reduce their appearance, giving you a more youthful look. They are also used in lip augmentations, which are especially beneficial to those with high lip-lines, or patients who are getting used to a new set of dentures. With dermal fillers, Dr. Merguerian can restore that lost volume, and provide you with the confidence in the look and feel of your smile that you deserve.
