If you would like to know more about the TMJ and teeth grinding treatment, and what Ashbury Clinic in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast can do for you, please contact us today.
TMJ, also known as temporomandibular joint disorder, is often detected by jaw tension and soreness.
Our team of experienced physicians has put together a list of the top 5 signs you may suffer from with this disorder:
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.
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, ear aches, or shoulder pain.
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.
The treatment duration depends on the number of injections required as recommended by your Ashbury Clinic professional. Typically, treatment is completed within 10-30 minutes.
If you are interested in finding out more about our anti-wrinkle injectables to treat teeth grinding/TMJ, please contact one of our clinics in Brisbane or on the Gold Coast. Our highly experienced team are more than happy to accommodate you and discuss your treatment options further.
At Ashbury Clinic, 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.
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 within a week. As a result, any headaches, jaw tension, stress, and other discomfort experienced will dissipate and eventually disappear.
