Millions of people across the globe struggle with bruxism, a frequent grinding and clenching of your teeth, and TMJ pain, also referred to as temporomandibular disorder (TMD). When the muscles, bones, and joints in your jaw are not working together, it can lead to complications like Jaw pain, difficulty chewing, and clicking and locking of the jaw joint. Other common symptoms of TMD may include:
- Face, neck, and shoulder pain
Drs. Beth and Vasco Lowery are certified providers of Botox® treatments to relax the muscles in your face and jaw, and help provide much needed relief from the pain and discomfort of TMJ related symptoms.
If your lip rests high on your gums, exposing more of them than you would like, you might have a condition known as excessive gingival display, more commonly called a “gummy smile.” A few quick Botox injections in our Eastanollee office can help relax your upper lip muscles, so your gums remain covered.
