TMJ Disorder can lead to painful headaches, earaches, jaw pain, and more. These symptoms can make daily routines — including something as simple as chewing your food — difficult and unpleasant. Thankfully, there are numerous treatment options available for TMJ Disorder that can help alleviate pain and discomfort.

When you think of BOTOX® injections, you probably don’t think of TMJ treatment. However, this substance can be beneficial for much more than just cosmetic uses. However, when skillfully and strategically administered, BOTOX® injections can help relax the overactive muscles causing TMJ pain. This can bring relief to patients with TMJ Disorder for approximately four months before retreatment is necessary. To stay ahead of the discomfort, I recommend scheduling follow-up appointments in advance.

While BOTOX® injections can provide successful relief from TMJ pain, the results are only temporary. Additionally, this treatment may not be right for all individuals, so it is important to schedule a consultation with a dentist who is experienced with a variety of TMJ treatment options. In a consultation, your dentist can evaluate your unique needs and suggest a treatment that is right for you.
