What is TMJ?
Technically, this condition is called TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder), a cluster term for many conditions that occur in the face, ranging from joint to muscle to ligament pain. But the term TMJ is more commonly used and specifically refers to pain in the jaw joints.
If you’re experiencing any of the following, you may be dealing with a temporomandibular joint disorder:
Tired feeling or pain in your face
Swelling on the side of your face
Pain in or around your ear
Pain when chewing
Feeling of your jaw being "stuck"
BOTOX® is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX® relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, BOTOX® can even minimize lock jaw.
