Treatment for TMD
BOTOX is a non-invasive injection that inhibits signals being sent from the nerves to the muscles. Our Pikesville dentist is dedicated to the proper diagnosis and treatment of TMD. He provides patients with BOTOX injections to the muscles of the jaw, alleviating the tightness and soreness that often accompanies this condition. This is beneficial for patients who are unable to wear a mouth guard. Within four to five days, patients will begin to feel the effects of the injection, relaxing the chewing muscles. Treatment lasts for about five months, at which time our dentist can discuss whether another injection is needed.
TMD treatment through BOTOX is usually paired with the use of a nightguard. These professionally crafted guards prevent clenching and redirect the pressure of the bite. After the injection has worn off, patients will often experience lessened discomfort, having broken the cycle of excessive bite pressure. This relaxation then allows patients to loosen the tension in their face, relieving much of the pain that patients feel from TMD.
Cosmetic Wrinkle Relief
Dr. Rothschild also uses BOTOX treatment to enhance the overall appearance of patients’ smiles. In much the same way that these injections alleviate jaw discomfort, the relaxation of the muscles helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the face. The effect of these treatments is subtle, yet noticeable enough to help patients gain a youthful appearance.
At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry of Maryland, our dentist combines BOTOX with the other cosmetic dental services we provide to enhance the complete facial aesthetic.
