What Is Dysport?
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.
What Are the Benefits of Dysport for TMJ Dysfunction?
If you've tried other solutions for TMJ disorder and been underwhelmed by the results, Dysport injections at Camden Dental Care may help to provide relief from your symptoms. Dysport TMJ treatments offer a range of benefits, including:
- Provides quick, effective relief from symptoms such as jaw soreness, stiffness, or bruxism (teeth grinding)
- Noninvasive approach with no need for sutures or a drawn-out recovery period
- Restores jaw function by relaxing the muscles around the jaw joint, reducing spasms and related pain
- Can be performed in a matter of minutes, leaving you free to return to your normal activities

Who Is A Candidate for Dysport Injections?
If you're experiencing discomfort due to temporomandibular joint dysfunction, characterized by symptoms such as jaw pain, teeth grinding, or headaches stemming from jaw tension, you might be wondering if you're a suitable candidate for Dysport treatment. At Camden Dental Care, we specialize in offering innovative treatments for TMJ disorders, including Dysport injections. The injectable solution temporarily paralyzes the overworked jaw muscles, promotes relaxation, and alleviates tension. Patients who have found little relief from other TMJ treatments may find Dysport to be an effective alternative.
How Do Dysport TMJ DISORDER Treatments Work?
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.
Camden Dental Care Reviews
Friendly front desk staff and the hygienist are very helpful in answering any questions you have.
The best experience I have had with a Dentist. Dr. Raju is very professional.
As always, very nice experience at Dr D’s office today with their hygienist, Riz! Reviewed my MD history before she started my procedure that led to me to being pre medicated first before we got started, even provided blanket so I’m comfortable. As always the ladies at the front desk were all so sweet and caring. Thank you for your great staff Dr. D and to you too! /rosan
The ABSOLUTE BEST dental office in the world. The staff make you feel like family, and they make you feel loved in one of the scariest places to go to LOL I have avoided the dentist for 15 years prior to coming to Camden due to fear of pain of dental care. I had bad tooth pain and looked for offices, and Camden had 5 stars 🌟 from everyone. I'm so glad I am their patient.
Friendly staff and on-time appointments. I am usually here for regular cleaning and they are on time. They work well with my insurance to provide me the proper coverage.
