BOTOX® & TMJ Treatment

BOTOX® and TMJ Treatment

BOTOX® can be used to address a number of medical conditions, including the treatment of TMJ pain. Ask your oral surgeon for more details to find out if treatment with BOTOX® may be right for you

Botox, the well-known brand name in cosmetic injections, comes from the bacteria neurotoxin, clostridium botulinum. Used in microscopic doses in Botox, this neurotoxin effectively paralyzes and relaxes parts of muscle. When injected into the muscles around the jaw, this paralyzation and relaxation results in reduced pain for patients suffering from TMJ disorders.

At SMOMS, Dr. Meg Bradley offers TMJ Treatment through Botox injections. Dr. Bradley’s training gives her a precise and thorough knowledge of facial anatomy. From skin to bone, and everything in between, oral surgeons know faces inside and out. This makes oral surgeons a trustworthy source for any facial procedure.

“There are steps for treating pain, and Botox is the last non-surgical step for patients,” Dr. Bradley explains, “it can give them their function back without surgery. In fact, around 95% of people with jaw pain don’t need surgery. These injections are great because we can keep people out of the operating room and relieve their symptoms with a minimally-invasive procedure!”

Like all first appointments at SMOMS, a patient can expect their first appointment with Dr. Bradley to be a consultation. At their consultation, the patient and Dr. Bradley will discuss and evaluate their unique case and symptoms, and create a treatment plan that fits them. If injections are part of that treatment plan, Dr. Bradley will schedule and complete the injection appointment at one of SMOMS’s state-of-the-art offices. Patients can feel confident about having their Botox injections in a certified and surgically cleaned medical facility! An added bonus is that injection appointments don’t take long–only about 30 minutes!

If you or a loved one suffers from TMJ disorders, bruxism, or chronic migraines, call Southern Maine Oral Surgery at 207-774-2611 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Bradley and break the cycle of pain!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) and around the side of the eyes (crow’s feet lines) in adults for a short period of time.

BOTOX® and Gummy Smiles

BOTOX® treatment can change the movement of the lip when a patient smiles, preventing it from lifting as high and exposing excessive gum tissue. This treatment can be very effective but is temporary and would need to be maintained.
