Dysport for Clenching (Jaw Pain) Instead of Botox

One of the common behaviors reported amongst people is tooth grinding, and generally, they are of two types, one of which occurs during sleep and the other during wakefulness. Though the damage to dental health is reported to be common in both types, it is the symptoms that vary in both cases. If you are suffering from this, then we have got a piece of good news for you. It is now possible to put an end to this problem, all thanks to the growing technology in dental science. 

Dysport is used to treat TMJ (Temporo-mandibular joint) disorder and associated jaw tension and pain. When this is injected into the facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, it relieves the TMJ for many patients. Many patients encounter a sense of headache. This injection helps in removing it and making the patient feel more comfortable and relaxed. 

When the joints become displaced or are overworked through excessive teeth grinding, patients may suffer from severe headaches and sharp pain in the jaw. Dysport helps in relieving the jaw tension by making the muscles unable to engage in the jaw's powerful movement, which is the primary reason for the headache and spasm of the joint. 

This treatment is usually quick, straightforward, and is the most effective one. Usually, this treatment does not endorse the patient to stay in the hospital. The non-surgical injections are typically carried out in the doctor's office, so you don't have to worry about investing hefty money for staying in the hospital. The good news is that most of the patients who undergo this treatment usually experience the improvement within 2 to 3 days of their first treatment but note that the relief can take up to two weeks for the full effect. 

When we talk about the length of the treatment, it is a subjective matter and usually depends on the number of injections required, which the doctor determines. But still, if we have to give a figure, it is reasonable enough to tell that the treatment procedure will be completed within 10-20 mins. As far as the risk associated with it is concerned, like every other medical procedure, side effects are involved, but since it is a non-surgical process, the risk is considered to be on the lower side.
