Botox® for TMJ (Temporo-Mandibular Joint)

The joint on both sides of the head where the jawbone meets the skull is called the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ). TMJ syndrome occurs when this joint becomes overworked due to excessive teeth grinding or clenching of the teeth, and may result in tension headaches, jaw clicking or extreme pain in the jaw. Botox® for TMJ is injected into the muscles that control the often involuntary movements of the joint and causes them to relax, alleviating your TMJ symptoms. Many people experience relief with two weeks, but it may take longer to get the full benefit of the treatment.
