Understanding TMJ & TMD

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders encompass a range of conditions affecting the jaw joint and muscles responsible for jaw movement. These disorders can lead to discomfort and a decrease in the quality of life. Common TMJ symptoms include:
  • Jaw pain or tenderness
  • Aching pain in and around your ear
  • Difficulty chewing or discomfort while chewing
  • Aching facial pain
  • Locking of the joint, making it difficult to open or close your mouth
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth

Jaw Pain Relief Through Botox Treatment

Botox, widely recognized for its cosmetic applications, has emerged as an effective treatment for managing TMJ & TMD symptoms. By precisely targeting the muscles involved in jaw movement, Botox injections can significantly reduce muscle tension and pain, offering relief for those suffering from TMJ disorders.

Benefits of Botox for TMJ & TMD Treatment:

  • Reduction in Jaw Tension: Botox injections help relax the jaw muscles, decreasing the intensity of muscle contractions and reducing overall jaw tension.
  • Pain Relief: By relaxing the muscles around the jaw, Botox can alleviate the pain associated with TMJ disorders, including headaches and facial pain.
  • Improved Function: Patients often experience an improvement in jaw movement and function, with a decrease in discomfort during activities like eating and speaking.
  • Non-Surgical: Botox offers a non-invasive treatment alternative to surgical interventions, with minimal downtime and immediate return to daily activities.

The Treatment Process

The process begins with a comprehensive evaluation at Active Dental to assess your TMJ symptoms and determine if Botox treatment is right for you. The actual procedure involves a series of Botox injections administered directly into the jaw muscles. The treatment is quick, with minimal discomfort, and patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately afterward.

Amazing office and even better staff! The dentist isn’t always the most fun place to go but this location does an amazing job in making sure you are comfortable from the second you walk in until you leave. They walk you through everything going on in your mouth and proper treatment needed going forward. You never feel in the dark or like they’re trying to oversell!! Happy I have found a dentist and will be recommending to family and friends!

I had a great first experience at the new Frisco office. Everyone was warm and friendly. I had a new patient coupon. They were straight forward and got everything done within an hour. Plenty of parking and the office was new and clean. Cannot wait to return. They did not try to sell any unnecessary services.

From the moment you walk in to sitting in "the chair" you feel very comfortable and welcomed. The customer service is top notch and a priority. You are always asked if they can make you more comfortable and if you are doing well. The cleaning was quick, easy, and painless (as it should be). Dr. Samir Prajapati and his team are professional and courteous. They were very thorough on what they were doing, what to expect next, and what the future holds for you and your oral health. The dentist office should be a place of peace and tranquility and that's what it was for me on their opening day.
