Crystalline Dental is pleased to offer Botox and TMD therapy! Botox injections are used frequently in dental offices as an excellent alternative treatment for more troublesome maladies such as TMJ, which may include headache, clenching/grinding and sleep bruxism. Botox® relieves jaw tension by making muscles unable to engage in the powerful, often unconscious movement of the jaw that produces headaches and pain.
Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are disorders of the jaw muscles, temporomandibular joints, and the nerves linked to chronic facial pain. Any problem that prevents the complex system of muscles, bones, and joints from working together in harmony may result in temporomandibular disorder.
The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are the 2 joints that connect your lower jaw to your skull. More specifically, they are the joints that slide and rotate in front of each ear. They include the lower jaw (mandible) and the temporal bone (the side and base of the skull). The TMJs are among the most complex joints in the body. These joints, along with several muscles, allow the mandible to move up and down, side to side, and forward and back. When the mandible and the joints are correctly aligned, smooth muscle actions can occur. These include chewing, talking, yawning, and swallowing. When these structures (muscles, ligaments, disk, jaw bone, temporal bone) are not aligned they don’t move well together.
Botox treatment is a nonsurgical, outpatient procedure. Each treatment session typically takes 10-30 minutes. You could expect to have at least three injection sessions over several months.

Our Licenced Botox Therapists in Crystalline dental will inject Botox into your forehead, temple, and jaw muscles. They may also inject other areas depending on your symptoms. Your doctor will decide the number of Botox injections you need.

The injection may cause you to feel pain, similar to a bug bite or prick. Doctors recommend easing the pain with a cold pack or numbing cream.
You should remain upright and avoid rubbing or massaging the injection sites for several hours after treatment. This helps prevent the toxin from spreading to other muscles.
Botox may cause a fixed smile lasting for six to eight weeks. The paralyzing effect of Botox on muscles causes this side effect.
There are also other reported side effects linked to the Botox injection. They generally appear within the first week of treatment and include:
– Pain
– Redness at the injection site
– Muscle weakness
– Bruising at the injection site
