TMJ dysfunction is an incredibly common, yet incredibly painful issue for many people. There are over three million cases in the US every year, and unfortunately, many people don’t realize that Botox® for TMJ is a simple treatment option.
When Botox® is injected into the masseter muscles of the jaw, it relaxes tehm and prevents further clenching, relieving the aching paint TMJ can cause. Like and other muscle in the body, the masseter muscles can “bulk up” after repeated use from clenching and grinding. With Botox® injections, these muscles aren’t able to get their “workout” in and finally begin to rest. This resting phase allows them time to heal and repair, providing sweet relief from symptoms of TMJ.
