Understanding TMJ

Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders (TMJ disorders) are fairly common and can manifest in various ways. The vast majority of TMJ disorders and pain are caused by overacting muscles that control your jaw. When these muscles are overused due to clenching and grinding your teeth due to stress or sleep related disorders, they grow large and dense and put extra tension on the fragile joint disc within your TMJ. This constant pulling on your muscles causes spasming and pain. As Dentists, we specialize in head and neck facial muscles, and know best how your muscles respond to Botox.

Treatment Options for TMJ pain

As a TMJ dentist, we always recommend starting with the least invasive treatment method. One state-of-the-art way to treat TMJ pain is with Botox (botulinum toxin). This is a non-invasive way to calm the muscle spasms and allow your joint time to recover. Botox and similar products are gently injected with an ultra-fine painless Botox needle into the thickest portion of the overactive jaw muscle bulges, and make the muscle contractions slightly less intense for a few months at a time. This decreases pain, and increases quality of life. Botox can also prevent your teeth from clenching and grinding so hard and save them from cracked teeth, sensitivity and wear. Botox can be delivered in different jaw muscles, one of which is a muscle near your temple. Giving Botox in this muscle makes a huge difference in decreasing migraines and severe headaches.
