Van Nuys, CA Dentist, Dr. Robert Fields Uses Therapeutic Botox To Treat TMJ Disorder and Bruxism
Sufferers of TMJ Disorder and Bruxism in the Van Nuys, San Fernando area will be excited to learn of a convenient and effective treatment alternative. While traditional treatment methods such as night guards and dental splits have been the most common, non-surgical means of dealing with these painful conditions, there is an innovative and more effective solution available through Dr. Robert Fields’ California practice. Therapeutic Botox can be used to help relax the muscles affected by TMJ Disorder and Bruxism. Dr. Fields wants patients to learn how this advanced dental treatment can help them.
Therapeutic Botox is administered very much like cosmetic Botox, only in the case of treating jaw disorders, it’s targeted at the muscles that tense and become sore as a result of subconscious teeth clenching and grinding. It can also be used to treat facial tics and other minor maxillofacial conditions. Therapeutic Botox can last for up to several months after just one administration. Many of Dr. Fields’ patients love the convenience and freedom of being able to sleep and relax without the use of a night guard or oral splint. The pain reduction of Therapeutic Botox is also felt faster than through the gradual affects of other jaw relaxation methods.
Dr. Robert Fields is a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and welcomes your questions about Therapeutic Botox treatment for TMJ Disorder and Bruxism.
