Bethenny Frankel, star of The Real Housewives of New York City and founder of Skinnygirl Cocktails received some attention in the media lately regarding plastic surgery. At an event in NYC, she explained to the audience that she had received Botox injections in her jaw to help with the grinding and clenching she experienced from her TMJ (disorder).
It just so happens that while treating the symptoms associated with TMJ disorders you can also improve your appearance. In this case, it gave Frankel a softer jawline which is one of the reasons for all the buzz. Fans thought she looked years younger around the time she was receiving the treatments and were dying to find out why.
Charice, the teen singer called “the most talented girl in the world” by Oprah, also had Botox injections just before her appearance on the hit television show Glee. It caused quite a stir because of her age. After letting her fans known it was done to treat jaw pain, possibly related to a TMJ disorder, it was much more understood and accepted.
As with all new things, awareness and education are key. People are much more willing to accept something once they understand the facts. Many of the painful symptoms that come from TMJ disorders are caused by the muscle tension that puts pressure on the jaw joints. Botox injections work to help relax these muscles.
Dr. Collins can help work with you to devise a non-invasive treatment plan that combines Botox with other dental treatments to help manage your TMJ disorder symptoms so you can find relief from the pain and discomfort this can cause in everyday life.
