We approach TMJ and Teeth Grinding
relief with a two-step process…
Trigger Point Injections
We identify the muscles that control the clenching of the jaw muscles and administer a 1% Lidocaine injection to the site. If the pain is relieved, this indicates that the cause of pain is indeed muscular in nature.
If TMJ pain recurs, we may then recommend to administer Botox Injections to various sites in the jaw muscles. These injections cause the muscles to relax. Patients often experience permanent relief from pain after receiving Botox injections. The procedure is both safe, and effective.
