At Anchorage Midtown Dental Center, we provide a comprehensive menu of treatment techniques, like therapeutic BOTOX®, to match the unique needs of our patients. To some, these alternatives may seem a bit unconventional, but they have been proven to be ultra-effective.
Botox has traditionally been used by cosmetic offices and plastic surgeons as a temporary aesthetic tool to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. However, the dental benefits of injectable medication are now something that dental experts can use to improve the quality of life of their patients.
Management of TMJ Disorders and Symptoms
Injectables like BOTOX® can help ease the symptoms of jaw pain and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. If you have chronic symptoms of:
• Jaw Pain
The effects typically last for at least a few months at a time. When you’re struggling with constant pain throughout the day or as soon as you wake up, there’s a good chance that TMJD or bruxism is to blame. BOTOX® can naturally help you to relax the muscles throughout your jaw, easing the strain that you put on them throughout the day.
Additionally, our Anchorage dentists prescribe custom-made mouthguards as an alternative treatment option. Our mouthguards are comfortable to wear - and made just for you!
