Look forward to fewer headache days with BOTOX®. Make sure your next appointment is scheduled before leaving your doctor’s office.
BOTOX® Injections. In some people with TMJ disorder, injecting Botulinum Neurotoxin Type A (Botox) into the jaw muscles can relieve bruxism (involuntary clenching of the teeth). This relaxes the chewing muscles and lessens the strain on the temporomandibular joints (TMJ). Grinding of the teeth is thereby reduced by the amelioration of jaw clenching. This treatment should be repeated every three to four months. Your dentist or oral surgeon can also give you advice on managing this disorder.
Botox, commonly known for its cosmetic uses, is also an effective treatment for chronic migraines and certain types of headaches. It works by blocking the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission, thereby reducing the frequency and severity of headache episodes.
Patients typically receive Botox injections every 12 weeks, and many find significant relief from their headache symptoms, leading to an improved quality of life. This treatment is usually considered when other medications have not been effective or have caused undesirable side effects.
