TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

TMJ Treatment Brisbane & Gold Coast

Relieve teeth grinding, jaw tension and TMD with our advanced injectable treatment.

At Ashbury Cosmetics, anti-wrinkle injections are a non-surgical and effective alternative method to treat jaw tension and other concerns associated with teeth grinding and TMD.

What is TMD?

TMD, also known as temporomandibular joint disorder is often detected by jaw tension and soreness.

How to detect TMD?

Our team of experienced physicians has put together a list of the top 5 signs you may suffer from this disorder:

  • Chronic head pain
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Clicking or cracking noises when moving the jaw
  • Frequent pain behind the eyes
  • Constantly battling with poor oral health

What is teeth grinding?

Teeth grinding (bruxism) is an involuntary clenching, grinding and gnashing of the teeth. This condition has been dubbed a silent disorder as many sufferers only experience it during sleep.

Can grinding teeth cause migraines?

The pain from your jaw created by the clenching then travels to other places in the skull, causing headaches or, in severe cases, migraines. You may also experience toothaches, earaches or shoulder pain.

How do injectables treat teeth grinding and TMJ disorder?

The TMJ joint is located on either side of your head where the jawbone meets the skull. If this joint becomes displaced or is overworked through excessive teeth grinding, a person may suffer severe tension headaches, as well as sharp pain in the jaw.  Injectables can relieve the jaw tension by restricting the muscles from contracting and causing, often unconscious, movement of the jaw.

What result can I expect?

The injections are administered in our practice suite, with little to no discomfort or downtime. Most patients experience noticeable improvement within 1 – 2 days post-treatment, although relief will continue to improve dramatically in a week. As a result, any headaches, jaw tension, stress and other discomfort experienced will dissipate and eventually disappear.

How long is the treatment?

The treatment duration depends on the number of injections required as recommended by your Ashbury Cosmetic professional. Typically, treatment is completed within 10-30 minutes.

Are the injectables painful?

At Ashbury Cosmetic, your physician will apply numbing cream to ensure complete comfort during treatment. Combined with their gentle hand, our patients experience little to no discomfort. Post-treatment, you may notice some redness around the injection points, which usually settles after a few minutes.
