Facial injectables in Belconnen

If you have issues with your temporomandibular joint, you may suffer frequent headaches or even migraines. Belconnen Dental Centre offers facial injectables of botulinum toxin that can help.

The Temporomandibular Joint

Temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMJ or TMD, is an umbrella term for a variety of issues you might have with your temporomandibular joint. This joint forms the hinge of your jaw and allows your mouth to open and close.

If you have TMD, you might experience symptoms like these:

  • Pain in the sides of your face and neck, especially when you chew or speak
  • Clicking or popping sounds in the jaw when you chew
  • Swelling in the sides of your face
  • A ‘stuck’ feeling in the jaw when you open your mouth wide

Another common sign of TMD is that you wake up in the morning with a sore jaw and a headache. This is caused by the muscle tension of clenching your teeth in your sleep, which is a common side effect of TMD.

These tension headaches often progress into migraines, which can be debilitating and can interfere with your daily life.

How Facial Injectables Can Help

An injection of botulinum toxin, which you may recognize as a popular wrinkle-fighting treatment, can help the muscles in your jaw relax and release some of the tension, reducing the pain in your face, head and neck.

Results generally last for four months. With repeated injections, your facial muscles can be trained to relax, and you may notice that results last longer as your facial muscles become used to their new position.
