HOW DOES BOTOX HELP TMJ?

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a small joint in the jaw that acts as a hinge—it’s what allows you to open and close your mouth or move your jaw from side to side. Sometimes these joints can become worn, inflamed, or injured, leading to chronic pain in the jaw, face, and neck. Orthodontic issues and chronic jaw clenching can also cause TMJ pain, although sometimes we never know what caused the issue to start in the first place. In the past, TMJ was difficult to treat and often required surgery.

Orthodontic issues and chronic jaw clenching can also cause TMJ pain, although sometimes we never know what caused the issue to start in the first place. In the past, TMJ was difficult to treat and often required surgery. 

Fortunately, Botox gives us an effective, surgery-free way to treat TMJ issues by allowing the joint and those tense, sore muscles to take a break. Think of it as sort of a vacation for your jaw! Botox injections can also eliminate headaches caused by teeth grinding and can help to minimize lockjaw. One of the main benefits of using Botox to treat TMJ pain is that even though your muscles will be more relaxed, you’ll still be able to bite, chew, swallow and talk, just like normal. 

BOTOX

T’S NOT JUST FOR TMJ!

However, Botox isn’t just good for TMJ! It’s also very helpful in treating bruxism. Bruxism (unconscious teeth grinding and clenching) can cause a number of painful symptoms, as well as dental issues like enamel loss, tooth sensitivity, and chipped teeth. It can also lead to hypertrophy of the masseter muscle, which is basically where the muscle works so much that it becomes larger and bulkier. This can lead to a more square-looking jaw. Botox injections can provide relief from jaw soreness, headaches, and other unpleasant issues caused by bruxism. 

In addition, Botox has been FDA-approved for the treatment of chronic migraines. If you’re over 18 and have migraines 15 days (or more) out of the month, or headaches that last at least 4 hours a day, you may be an excellent candidate. Botox works by blocking the release of chemicals that carry pain signals from your brain—essentially stopping migraines before they start.
