BOTOX in Greenwood

Greenwood Female Botox PatientBOTOX® for TMJ Disorders and Facial Cosmetics

Patients often experience pain and discomfort in the jaw joints and muscles due to the clenching and/or grinding of their teeth. These patients could be diagnosed with TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) and can often be treated with BOTOX® injections into the facial muscles to help improve the symptoms of TMD.

BOTOX® triggers the muscles that are overworking and can relax them giving the patient relief from the soreness they are experiencing in the facial muscles.

BOTOX injections are commonly perceived as a cosmetic treatment by fixing those pesky lines and wrinkles that can appear on your forehead, the bridge of your nose, around the eyes or around your lips. BOTOX® injections relax the expression muscles and safely allow for patients to experience smoother, younger-looking skin.

All BOTOX® injections are carefully administered by our highly trained and certified dentist, Dr. Jillian Samela, DDS, and this cutting-edge procedure is considered to be minimally invasive and very safe.

Why BOTOX® Therapy?

BOTOX LogoBOTOX injections are a quick, effective, and essentially painless method to dramatically improve one’s facial appearance by relaxing the muscles in the face to give it a smoother, more youthful appearance. Moreover, it can be administered for an array of other medical uses such as sprains, spasms, or involuntary tightening of one’s facial muscles.

Applying BOTOX injections to the tense muscles can cure involuntary facial tics, teeth clenching, and more. In addition, after the application most patients will be relieved from these conditions for about 3-4 months before they need another treatment.

How Does BOTOX® Work for TMJ?

Essentially, these injections loosen your facial muscles and stabilize the temporomandibular joint (jaw). Previously, dental night guards and splints were commonly used to treat these conditions, with an elaborate surgery being the last resort. However, BOTOX injections offer dual benefits by treating the underlying cause instead of focusing on the symptoms alone.

"Greenwood Dental Smiles made my first visit to the dentist in 10+ years as painless as possible. The staff is super friendly, and you can feel the support and love between the team during your visit. Highly recommend! And my next visit was just as wonderful. They are truly consistent with their experiences! Love my dentist "

Kelsi Faletic

"Amazing team! I really can't say enough about Greenwood Dental Smiles and their entire staff. They're always super friendly and do phenomenal work. Due to my refusal to floss regularly I’ve given them a few small “projects” over the years beyond just routine cleanings. I’m totally petrified of shots/needles but they’re some of the best in the business at guiding me through it those scenarios. If you’re looking to get some work done or just schedule cleanings, look no further. I would never go anywhere else; in fact maybe I’ll continue not flossing just so I can come back more frequently :-D"

If you’re looking for a new dental office, Greenwood Dental Smiles is the place to go!"
