Botox® has been used for years as a muscle relaxant, smoothing skin and removing wrinkles. Botox® also can safely and easily be used to help decrease pain caused from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
This oral problem can cause severe headaches. It occurs primarily in the muscles of the jaw. It can also lead to pain in the temples and in the back of the neck.
Many of our patients still suffer from TMJ pain even after treatment with night guards, pain relievers, and massages. Dr. Berardi, himself, suffered from this pain for years and has been trained in Botox® therapy. His personal experience and expertise draws some patients to our office from several hours away.
