Henderson, NV | Botox For TMJ Treatment Review | Michaela Tozzi, DMD

Dr. Tozzi's patient walks us through her trouble with TMJ and how it is affecting her everyday life.


Speaker 1: Well, I grind my teeth at night, so I've managed to crack a lot of teeth and crowns continually because of the grinding and the clenching. So when I came to Dr. Tozzi for the first time it was because I had cracked several crowns just from grinding at night. And she quickly said, "Do you have issues with your pain in your jaw?" And I said, "I have for years." And a year prior to coming to see her, I dislocated my jaw in the middle of the night. I was sleeping. And she said, "I've got something that may work for that." And so we got the crowns fixed and got all that part straightened out. And then I started on about a every six to eight week regimen of Botox injections in the clench area in my jaw and it's changed everything. It's changed how I sleep, it's changed how I eat and hold my jaw when I'm resting. So it's really changed everything, just how I am even to my staff at work or at home to my kids. But yeah, it's definitely something that I don't know how I could live without at this point.
