TMD, also known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is a common condition that causes the hinge joint that attaches the lower jaw to the skull to become painful, stiff or inflamed. This can be caused by routine grinding, clenching and simply because of aging. In order to relieve the stiffness and discomfort that you're experiencing, Facial Cosmetic Injections can be used. These injections relieve the tension of the jaw, allowing it to function more freely without the pain that's often involved.
We will carefully examine the TMJ area and take x-rays as needed. We will feel the joint as you open and close your mouth and listen for any popping, grinding or cracking. If we feel that you would benefit from Facial Cosmetic Injections, we will suggest this as part of your treatment. In order to fully relieve TMD, we may suggest other types of treatments as well.
