Treating Esthetics And Jaw Joint Strain With Botox

tampa botox

Issues like TMJ disorder and bruxism (chronic teeth grinding) could lead to major discomfort and even damage your smile and impact how you open and close your mouth. We have a comfortable and noninvasive treatment to bring relief, and at the same time, reduce common signs of aging. With our team of helpful dentists in Tampa, FL, we can help your smile with Botox and Juvederm.

Signs You Need TMJ Discomfort

When you have TMJ disorder, the joints connecting your jaw and skull undergo immense strain, leading to issues opening and closing the mouth and a host of uncomfortable symptoms. With bruxism, you grind and clench your teeth at night which can wear down and damage teeth. Both could be caused by issues that upset bite balance, such as tooth loss, injury to the face or jaw, misalignment, or issues with the growth of the smile. High stress levels could be a factor too! Warning signs could include headaches, migraines, jaw and facial pain, and discomfort in the neck and shoulders. You could also develop toothaches and tooth sensitivity too. When these issues arise, let us know so we can help you avoid worsening symptoms and complications like tooth decay and dental infection.


To treat issues like TMJ disorder and bruxism, we could offer Therapeutic Botox, which is administered to the joints via injection, and interrupts the signals that cause muscle contractions in the facial muscles. This helps ease stress and strain in the jaw joints, reducing symptoms of TMJ disorder and teeth grinding. We could also offer Cosmetic Botox, which is used to limit the motions of facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful look. Both have results that can last about six months, and we can administer this during your routine checkup visits.


Our team is also proud to offer Juvederm, a dermal filler that helps fill in the deep lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth. This adds volume and smoothness to the skin, so you have a fuller appearance around your nose and mouth. This can also help improve the definition of your jawbone too! The effects can last several months, and we can re-administer as needed. If you have any questions about how we use these facial treatments to ease TMJ disorder and bruxism to keep your smile healthy, or about reducing the common signs of aging, then contact our team today.
