Most people who are familiar with BOTOX® Cosmetic think of it as a non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery. Although this is certainly a benefit of BOTOX®, dentists at Boles, Ham, Dixon & Boles and elsewhere are helping patients enjoy health benefits with this popular injectable as well.

If you have TMJ disorder, BOTOX® Cosmetic can relax stressed muscles to relieve pressure on jaw joints and nerves in the face. Our Wilson dentist Dr. Harvey Ham is an experienced provider of accurate injections for both alleviating facial pressure and making aesthetic improvements.

Some of the advantages of visiting our dentist for treatment with BOTOX®Cosmetic include:

  • Teeth are at less risk of damage from grinding
  • Minimized jaw pain
  • Less severe and less frequent TMJ headaches
  • Relief for sore muscles in the neck and shoulders
  • Reduced dependence on a nightguard to relieve muscle tension – some patients are relaxed enough to forgo the nightguard entirely

Whether you need treatment for TMJ symptoms or you’d like to complement a gorgeous smile by rejuvenating your face, it’s important to find a doctor with experience providing BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dr. Ham combines advanced knowledge of how joints, muscles, and nerves in the face interact with a precise, gentle hand to meet our patients’ health and cosmetic needs.
