If you are bothered by symptoms, like jaw pain, teeth grinding (awake or asleep), or headaches caused by jaw tension, then it's possible you may suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, a disorder that affects the muscles around the point where the jawbone connects with the skull. This condition makes life more difficult for countless individuals in Elk Grove, CA, which is why Dr. Raju Dhariwal is dedicated to offering new and advanced treatments to help alleviate its painful symptoms. One of the treatments we are proud to offer at Camden Dental Care is Dysport, an injectable solution that partially paralyzes the jaw muscles, allowing them to relax from being overworked and relieving any tension you might feel. If you're one of the many individuals who struggle to talk, chew, or move their mouths comfortably, call our office to ask about Dysport and other possible treatments for TMJ dysfunction.

First, our providers at Camden Dental Care will assess your jaw for signs of problems. This is done by palpating the muscles and feeling how the jaw moves when you move your mouth and head. Dr. Dhariwal may also take digital x-rays to get a more detailed picture of your jaw's health and structure. For the treatment, you may be asked to move or clench your jaw in order to activate the muscles, at which point we will administer a series of Dysport injections to the jaw. The number of injections will depend on how advanced your case is, but the treatment is generally quick and virtually painless for most patients. You should begin to feel the benefits of your Dysport TMJ treatment within days, and the results should last for months.

My dentist of 22 years recently retired so we have to find a new one. Camden was recommended by one of my bffs and I’m glad she did. Office and their equipments are quite modern, whole place is neat and clean, and most all the whole staff is very pleasant, very helpful and welcoming, they make you feel at home including Dr. D. The best part - it’s close to home now, no need to drive to downtown Sacramento.
