TMJ Grinding Treatment

TMJ Grinding Treatment

Do you grind at night and wake up with a sore jaw? Do you wear a mouth guard that is extremely uncomfortable and doesn’t seem to improve the TMJ condition?  There is a solution with Dysport®.

Botulinum injections were used therapeutically for pain and spasm management 20 years before it was applied cosmetically. It’s been around treating migraines and headaches since 1980s, making it one of the safest, most predictable and effective drug on the market.

If you suffer from tempero-mandibular joint problems, it’s time to stop the ineffective medications and try Dysport®  for TMJ relief.

How many treatments will I need?

Most individuals require 1 treatment every 4 month.

Is there any down time after Dysport® treatment ?

No. Soon after the procedure, you may feel a slight bump on the skin, and some redness to the area treated which will disappear over the next few minutes. You may return to your daily activities immediately following the treatment, and be sure to avoid lying down or touching the area within 4 hours post treatment.

How long does it take for the results to become evident?

Dysport® is effective starting in 3 days. However the treatment works by weakening the hyperactive massetter muscle. Since it’s one of the strongest muscle in the body, it will take about 2 treatments to noticeably feel a difference. The first treatment will effectively relief symptoms such as locked jaw. The 2nd treatment will noticeably relieve pain in the tempero-mandibular joint.

It is recommended to get treatment on per needed basis to maintain optimal results.
