TMJ Therapy: Make Your Chronic Pain Disappear
Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are the small hinges on your lower jaw that allow it to move smoothly whenever you eat, speak, laugh or yawn. Like other joints in the body, it can sometimes become strained or injured, leading to a variety of dental and overall health problems. If a stiff and painful jaw or migraine headaches are all too common for you, be sure to come see us at Elements Dental, and we can quickly relieve your pain.

Therapeutic Botox® Injections
Most people know that Botox® can be used to eliminate small facial wrinkles, but it can also be used to effectively treat TMJ related pain. Using a few strategically-placed injections around the jaw, Botox® can temporarily paralyze the muscles that are causing any pain, tension, and teeth grinding. The treatment only takes a few minutes to administer and can last for months at a time.
Migraine headaches are one of the most common symptoms related to TMJ problems. Many migraine sufferers have no clue that their issue actually stems from their jaw and not their head! If migraines are a frequent occurrence for you, we can help you finally get the relief you need with a safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment.
