Dr. Benjamin Silva provides BOTOX® treatments to help improve your oral function. While we do not offer cosmetic BOTOX, it is a versatile treatment and can be used to effectively treat TMJ disorders and other conditions. When you visit Silva Dentistry, our dentist will consult with you to determine if BOTOX is a good option for you.
BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) has been approved by the FDA for treatments of certain conditions, including TMJ disorders, bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching), and chronic migraines. When used to treat these conditions, BOTOX works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing the tension and contractions that contribute to those conditions.
Because BOTOX is an injectable, it does not require incisions, stitches or surgery. You will be able to resume your daily routine directly following your appointment. Our team will simply inject the medication into a strategically chosen location. We may use ice or a topical numbing cream to ensure that you are completely comfortable. It may take several treatments to help you receive the relief you need from your TMJ disorder or other condition, but we will work to make sure you achieve your desired results.
