At Cedars Family Dental, we can offer our patients more than just the highest quality dental care. To further meet our patient’s needs, we can also provide Botox/Xeomin treatment for TMD and migraine headaches, as well as Botox Cosmetic and Juvéderm treatments for easing the signs of aging.
Temporomandibular disorders are disorders that are caused by strain or dysfunction of the temporomandibular joints (TMJ). TMJ are the two joints that connect the lower jaw to the skull.
They consist of the mandible, or lower jaw, and the temporal bone, which sits on the side and the base of the skull. These joints allow the jaw to function properly as you talk, yawn, chew, and swallow.
When these joints are not properly aligned due to muscle strain, or excessive clenching or grinding of the teeth (bruxism), it can lead to temporomandibular joint disorders or TMD. These disorders can cause acute discomfort or pain in the facial muscles, jaw, neck, and shoulders; headaches, including severe migraine headaches; clicking or popping of the jaw, and bite misalignment.
When left untreated, TMD can seriously affect your dental health and general wellness, like the premature wearing down of teeth and gums, disrupted sleep, and pain severe enough to affect everyday enjoyment of life.
Xeomin can alleviate the symptoms of TMD by relaxing the overworked and sore muscles in your jaw, neck, and shoulders. Xeomin treatment has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment for TMD and has been used by healthcare professionals to treat TMD pain for many years.
Xeomin treatment of TMD is performed right in our office and involves nearly painless injections which precisely target the source of TMD pain. Our patients report that treatment of their TMD with Xeomin is highly effective, offering pain relief within days of treatment that can last for many months.
While the exact cause of migraine headaches is unknown, they are thought to be caused by abnormal brain activity, which temporarily affects nerve signals, chemicals, and blood vessels in the brain, leading to pain-causing muscle tension. Migraine pain can be severely debilitating.
It can disrupt a sufferer’s ability to function normally for the duration of a migraine and cause depression and fatigue post-migraine. The use of Botox/Xeomin to treat chronic migraines was approved by the FDA in 2010.
Xeomin treatment has been proven to alleviate not just the pain caused by migraines but also the frequency of the onset of migraines. Treatment of migraines involves several injections of Botox into the pain fibers that cause migraines.
It works by effectively blocking pain signals from your nerves to your muscles, preventing the muscle tension that leads to migraine pain or even preventing a migraine from developing. Like Botox treatment for TMD, Xeomin treatment for migraines is done conveniently in our office.
The injections used to treat and prevent migraines are precisely administered to offer optimal results and like Xeomin treatment for TMD, the pain-relieving effects last for months.
Are you unhappy with the appearance of frown lines, creases between your brow (also known as the dreaded “elevens”), or other fine lines and wrinkles? At Cedars Family Dental, we can help with Botox/Xeomin Cosmetic!
Botox/Xeomin Cosmetic is FDA-approved specifically to treat the face and has been used for over 20 years as a treatment for facial wrinkles. It works by temporarily relaxing the muscles in the forehead and around the eyes to diminish the appearance of wrinkles.
The beautiful results from Botox/Xeomin Cosmetic can last an average of four months. Dr. Salamy is an American Academy of Facial Esthetics-certified Botox/Xeomin provider.
With her years of dental education, she has an in-depth knowledge of the muscles of the face allowing her to precisely target and treat unwanted wrinkles. Many Botox/Xeomin Cosmetic patients even say that the Botox/Xeomin injections given by dentists are less painful than those given by other providers!
Along with her certification as a Botox/Xeomin Cometic provider, Dr. Salamy is also certified to administer Juvéderm, a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that works to keep your body hydrated and your skin flexible.
With age, the protective fat layers under the skin thin out, resulting in sagging and loss of volume. The skin also produces less collagen, which gives the skin structure and elasticity.
Juvéderm restores lost volume and fullness to the face, easing the appearance of deep expression lines, especially those in the “smile zone” around the mouth and lips, and plumping up the apple of the cheek. Juvéderm can also be used to increase the fullness of lips or to make uneven lips more symmetrical.
While individual results vary, most Juvéderm patients find that they can see the amazing results of Juvéderm treatment within two weeks and find that it lasts from six months to a year. Apart from invasive plastic surgery, Juvéderm is the most effective treatment for restoring the youthful appearance of your skin!
If you suffer from TMD or migraines, Botox/Xeomin treatment for these painful conditions can be life-changing. With this effective treatment available, there is no reason you should needlessly suffer.
Botox/Xeomin Cosmetic and Juvéderm can also boost your well-being if you are unhappy with the signs of aging you see in your mirror. If you think Botox/Xeomin, Botox/Xeomin Cosmetic, or Juvéderm are right for you, contact our office today!
