Why does Renken Dentistry offer Botox for Liberty Hill patients? Renken Dentistry provides professional Botox injections for a variety of cosmetic and therapeutic uses. One important usage for Botox is the treatment of jaw tension. The temporomandibular joint connects your jawbone to your skull and can affect many areas of your face. TMJ syndrome, or TMD, can be extremely painful. Our dental office can help manage and relieve that discomfort.
Renken Dentistry provides different treatment options for TMJ. One popular option is night guard therapy, in which the patient is fitted with a mouth guard to wear while they sleep. Since TMJ disorder can be caused by arthritis, genetics, jaw injury, teeth clenching, or teeth grinding, a mouth guard prevents the wearer from further irritating the joint. For patients with severe pain, we offer Botox for TMJ. An experienced dentist will inject Botox into your facial muscles to help relieve tension and pain around the jaw and ear. Many patients experience relief within a day or two, but results can take up to a week. If you are experiencing symptoms of TMJ, such as jaw pain, soreness or pain in the face, difficulty or pain while chewing, or other discomforts, please contact our office immediately. We would be happy to discuss treatment options and if a mouth guard, Botox, or other treatment would be right for you.
