Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) May 02, 2017
Dr. Kim Ross is currently welcoming new patients without a referral seeking advanced temporomandibular joint (TMJ) treatment to minimize or eliminate jaw pain in Annapolis, MD. Using BOTOX®, a protein treatment that relaxes muscles, this qualified dentist is able to provide relief from the symptoms of this sometimes debilitating disorder.
Many people clench their jaw or grind their teeth when they are under stress, or at night while they sleep. Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, often leads to severe muscle and joint pain in the face. The effects may also be felt in the neck and ears and may cause migraines. Activities such as eating, talking and even swallowing may become difficult when TMJ disorder moves the jaw out of alignment or damages it from extra pressure or strain. Misalignment may also lead to chipped, broken or cracked teeth and uneven wear as teeth are no longer able to fit together correctly during chewing. People with TMJ-related jaw pain in Annapolis, MD, are urged to receive treatment to prevent further harm as well as for gentle pain relief.
Although many health care providers focus on the cosmetic benefits of BOTOX, a major function of the injection is the relaxation of muscles. While this does often produce the desired result of reducing the cause and appearance of wrinkles and tension lines, it can also provide substantial release from tightness and spasms in the jaw and face. Dr. Ross has applied this therapy as a method of TMJ treatment to many of her patients, with much success. Not only can this application of BOTOX assist those with jaw pain in Annapolis, MD, Dr. Ross also recommends it for adults who require muscle retraining due to the positive structural changes brought about by orthodontics or dentures.
