Does Botox Work for TMJ Disorders (TMD)?
If you didn’t know Botox could be used for both cosmetic and medically therapeutic treatment – you’re not alone!
Before we go into how Botox works for TMJ disorders, let’s discuss what TMJ is.
Your temporomandibular joint acts as a hinge for your mouth, letting you eat and talk freely. But when you have TMJ disorder, you may experience:
Sore cheeks and jaw
Teeth clenching or grinding
Neck and shoulder pain
Remember: Botox relaxes muscles.
In patients suffering from TMJ disorder symptoms, Botox helps relax tense jaw muscles and alleviate pain.
It’s typically recommended as a complementary treatment to other TMJ disorder therapy, but Botox may be all you need for certain symptoms!
In addition: Botox for TMJ disorder symptoms can last up to 3 months.
Can relieve facial pain and headaches caused by temporomandibular (TMJ) disorders.
