Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder refers to a condition that affects the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. It can cause symptoms such as jaw pain, difficulty in opening or closing the mouth, clicking or popping sounds in the jaw, headaches, and facial discomfort. TMJ disorders can be caused by various factors including jaw misalignment, teeth grinding, stress, arthritis, or injury, and treatment may involve a combination of self-care practices, medications, dental interventions, and in some cases, surgery.
If you are currently suffering with jaw pain, Botox® may be a good option for you. With pain associated with TMJ symptoms or other jaw pain Botox® can help to alleviate the pain by helping the jaw relax at a muscular level.
