TMJ Treatment: Botox is an Option
Do you have to live with the pain and discomfort of TMJ? You don’t have to anymore. There is a simple treatment that has been proven effective for people suffering from TMJ: Botox injections. This article discusses why Botox works, how it is administered, and what some of the side effects are.
What is TMJ?
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are the most common jaw disorders. They cause pain in and around your jaw. The temporomandibular joint is the connection between your lower jawbone (mandible) and upper jawbone (temporal bone).
There are a number of causes for TMJ disorders, including arthritis, an injury to the face or mouth area, teeth grinding/grinding habit, stress-related clenching of the jaw, and a misalignment of teeth.
Painless TMJ Treatment with Botox
Research shows that Botox injections can help alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with TMJ. Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin, which works by relaxing the facial muscles and blocking nerve impulses to those muscles.
The treatment can be administered during an office visit or as part of your regular dental appointment (it’s easy for us to inject while we’re cleaning your teeth). Treatment usually lasts six months to a year.
How TMJ Botox Treatment Works
Botox is injected into the muscles that are responsible for moving your jaw. By injecting Botox into these specific muscles, the treatment helps relax them and decrease their tone, which in turn decreases pain.
Botox also reduces jaw tension. More tension means more pain. By reducing this tension, the treatment can help alleviate TMJ symptoms and even prevent them from occurring in some cases.
The injections also help alleviate headaches that often result from teeth grinding or clenching. These are the most common side effects of TMJ, and they can be very painful until the Botox treatment takes effect.
Also, there is sufficient evidence showing the effectiveness of Botox in reducing lockjaw, a common symptom of TMJ.
Botox has also been seen to be effective in treating symptoms associated with other types of jaw disorders. These include arthritis, an injury to the face or mouth area, teeth grinding/grinding habit, stress-related clenching of the jaw, and a misalignment of teeth.
