Botox in Downtown Seattle for More Than Wrinkles

When we think about Botox, we tend to think about wrinkles and fine lines. However, Dr. Bridget Singh has been working with Botox as a functional dental treatment. Dr. Singh uses Botox to assist her patients in Downtown Seattle suffering migraine and TMJ disorders.


Dental Botox as a TMJ Treatment

The temporomandibular joint is an important part of your oral health. The joint acts as the hinge joining your jaw to your skull. The importance of the TMJ region is that it provides you with the ability to use your jaw effectively. There are several symptoms of TMJ problems to look for, including:

  • A painful jaw
  • Aching around your ear
  • Chewing problems
  • Facial pain
  • Difficulty opening or closing your mouth

Once you have been diagnosed with TMJ problems, dental Botox can be used as a treatment by Dr. Singh in Downtown Seattle.


Using Botox as a Treatment

Dr. Singh will make sure she understands your problems before she begins TMJ treatment. The benefits of Botox include the ability of the chemical to immobilize the muscles causing problems. TMJ treatment and pain have often been a mystery, with the pain left untreated. Dr. Singh believes the ability to treat the symptoms of TMJ can be helped by dental Botox. The use of dental Botox can relieve the tension caused by clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth.

Among the symptoms of TMJ pain that can be treated with Botox are headaches and migraines. Pain in the neck is a symptom of TMJ discomfort that can be treated by dental Botox.


How Does Dental Botox Work?

Dental Botox in Downtown Seattle is administered by Dr. Singh and her professional team. TMJ treatment using dental Botox is designed to contract the muscles and stop them from causing tension. Dr. Singh explains the discomfort associated with TMJ is often caused by the muscles around the jaw becoming tight. Your pain and discomfort can be eased by dental Botox injections. Dr. Singh uses Botox as a TMJ treatment to block the signals from the brain to the muscles. Botox acts as a blocker, paralyzing the muscles for around three months. You will need to return to Dr. Singh's office to consistently relieve your TMJ pain.
