Jaw popping, grinding, and clicking: these are common symptoms associated with TMJ Disorder, a condition that may affect as many as 10 million Americans. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint and refers to the anatomical hinge that is responsible for the mouth’s ability to open and close. In some cases, this joint and the surrounding muscles can become dysfunctional and cause pain and discomfort, including serious headaches and migraines. There are many options for treating TMJ Disorder, but currently there is no cure. One of the best ways to manage the condition effectively and for the long term is with BOTOX® injections. An injectable normally associated with the preservation of a youthful appearance, BOTOX® Cosmetic has several uses outside of aesthetic enhancement. The neurotoxin that makes up the formula is designed to limit the movement of overactive muscles. When administered to the muscles working alongside the TMJ, BOTOX® injections can help reduce involuntary contractions that often lead to grinding and clenching, as well as many other unwanted effects, without the need to wear an oral appliance every night as with some other popular treatments. We will develop a customized treatment plan that may include a series of BOTOX® injections around the jaw to treat the masseter muscles. BOTOX® injections will typically provide relief for up to four months, after which you’ll be advised to return for follow up treatment to maintain the effects. With regular injections, BOTOX® Cosmetic can often help train your muscles to relax over time. If you have additional questions about BOTOX® injections for TMJ Disorder, or if you wish to schedule a consultation, please contact us today.
