People who tend to clench their jaw or grind their teeth often develop pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which connects the jawbone to the skull. These types of TMJ disorders, commonly referred to simply as TMJ, can lead to chronic facial pain, difficulty eating, locking of the jaw joint, and pain around the ears or other parts of the head.
Botox injections can be used to relax the TMJ muscles and prevent jaw clenching. This simple procedure requires about 50 units of Botox and results last for about 6 months. Watch the video below for more information on using Botox injections to treat TMJ disorders.
Botox is generally considered safe if administered in small amounts by a licensed professional, but some risks are involved. The effects of Botox can spread around the injection site, potentially causing muscle weakness. Always choose a trained, qualified injector with a medical license for Botox or other injectables.
