BOTOX® Cosmetic and Therapeutic — TMJ Treatment and More by Our Doctor Serving Manhattan and All of New York City

Do you suffer from pain related to TMJ disorder, teeth grinding, or clenching? Do you wish to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles that have developed over the years? If so, you may be a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic or Therapeutic injections administered by TMJ specialist and BOTOX® certified doctor Clifford Degel, DDS. Our practice near Manhattan provides New York City with exceptional BOTOX® treatments.

Though BOTOX® injections are best known for their cosmetic applications, BOTOX® Therapeutic can relieve painful conditions triggered by the muscles of the jaw. As a therapeutic tool, BOTOX® is an integral part of dental implant surgery, TMJ treatment, and ensures the success of other dental services we offer.

BOTOX® Therapeutic

Long before BOTOX® Cosmetic injections were used to beautify the face, they were used for medical purposes. Spastic muscles or muscles that clench involuntarily can cause extreme discomfort and embarrassment. BOTOX® Therapeutic — delivered directly to problematic muscles via injections — can relieve facial tics, involuntary teeth clenching, and other medical problems. Patients typically get three to four months of relief after just one treatment.

TMJ specialist, Doctor Clifford Degel, offers BOTOX® Therapeutic injections at our practice serving Manhattan and all of New York City, to help patients overcome dental challenges related to muscle contraction. BOTOX® Therapeutic is helpful in treating TMJ disorder, ensuring the success of new dental restorations, and more.

Utility in Treating TMJ Disorder, Teeth Grinding, and Teeth Clenching

TMJ disorder, teeth grinding (bruxism), and teeth clenching can all cause extreme pain and disrupt daily life. Fortunately, all of these problems can be treated with BOTOX® Therapeutic, which relaxes the muscles that control the jaw (temporomandibular) joint. In the past, traditional treatments such as dental splints or night guards were used to treat these conditions. However, BOTOX® Therapeutic injections deliver targeted treatment to the source of the problem and allow you to enjoy your life free from pain.

Utility in Dental Implant Surgery

Because BOTOX® injections relax the muscles surrounding the jaw joint, targeted injections are useful in reducing the stress placed on new dental implants. Treatment with BOTOX® Therapeutic is an especially important part of the one-day implant process, in which the implant or implants are placed in just one appointment. Reducing the stress put on a new dental implant helps it become successfully integrated into your jaw bone, so you can count on many years of beautiful, worry-free smiles.

Mini Dry-lock

Immediate Dental Implants Using the Mini Drive-Lock™ System

Astoria Dental Group is among the first implant dentists to offer patients from throughout Manhattan, Queens, and Long Island the option of immediate dental implants using the Mini Drive-Lock™ (MDL) Dental System. Using the MDL system, your dentures can be made more secure than ever, and the implant procedure can usually be accomplished in a single visit.

The key to the MDL system is a miniature implant that can be placed in the jaw without complicated oral surgery. Using only a local anesthetic, we can secure the implant in the bone. Because of the bone's elastic nature, it will immediately hold the small implants in place. We then fit your dentures with receptacles that will allow you to snap them into place over the dental implants. Your dentures will remain firmly in place until you decide to remove them. You'll never have to depend on messy, unreliable adhesives again.


SimPlant™ System

Implants in a Day — the SimPlant™ System

You can get a new smile in just one day using a digitalized, streamlined process! The SimPlant™ system uses a CT scan of your skull to create a highly detailed image of your mouth that shows the condition of your jawbone and the optimal sites for dental implants. The patient can have this CT scan taken anywhere in the world, and the digital image can be e-mailed to our Queens-area implant dentist.

Using the CT scan image, the SimPlant™ Software makes a duplicate of the patient’s skull, creating a template to guide the proper placement of the dental implants. Using this guide, Dr. Degel secures the implant posts and crowns and uses BOTOX® Therapeutic to reduce the amount of stress placed on the new implant. By combining the SimPlant™ system with MDL miniature implants, dentures can be secured in one day — you can walk away with a beautiful, functional smile!
