Temporo-mandiubular joint pain can be debilitating. A recent study examined whether the properties of Botox effectively reduce jaw pain for individuals with severe, treatment-resistant TMJ.
Recently, Botox has been used to treat jaw pain. Injecting Botox into the masseter, temporal, and lateral pterygoid facial muscles can help to reduce jaw tension and reduce discomfort and pain. Additionally, relaxing facial muscles can help to restore a more rounded jawline and normal facial expression in TMJ sufferers.
