Therapeutic Injectables – TMD (TMJ)
Do you suffer from lock-jaw symptoms or tension? TMD (also known as TMJ) disorders can result in jaw pain, often due to bruxism, the habitual clenching or grinding of the teeth, genetic factors, arthritis, or injury. Therapeutic injectables, such as Botox, can help relax your jaw muscles, decreasing the stress on your jaw and alleviating pain and discomfort.
