TMJ Treatment NYC

Neuromuscular blockers have been prevalent in medical procedures for decades, but did you know they can alleviate jaw pain? Our revolutionary adjunctive TMJ neuromuscular blocking agents are a viable option to help relax overactive muscles and even reduce teeth grinding. Night grinding, clenching and frequent headaches become very frustrating. Since overactive muscles and muscle spasms are some of the prevalent causes of TMJ, neuromuscular blockers are a viable treatment option that Dr. Steven Davidowitz can use to decrease and prevent TMJ associated pain.

TMJ pain negatively affects over thirty-five million individuals. We utilize neuromuscular blocking agents in dentistry by administering several injections into the overused jaw muscles of the TMJ. The neurotoxin is gently and painlessly injected into the largest muscle of your jaw, which quickly allows your muscle to relax and sometimes shrink. This treatment is fairly quick and relief should be experienced in under a week. Regular neuromuscular blocking injections successfully lead to less jaw pain, fewer headaches and less frequent symptoms of TMJ. Since TMJ is generally triggered by stress, oral grinding and muscle spasms, weakening the muscle via with a neuromuscular blocking agent is a great adjunctive solution.
