If you are experiencing jaw pain, Botulinum Toxin therapy may be a treatment option for you! Although most people know Botulinum Toxin as a beauty-enhancing product that reduces wrinkles and fine lines in the face, it temporarily prevents nerve signals from reaching the muscles. With this in mind, one can understand how it can be useful for relaxing the muscles around the jaw also. Thus, Botulinum Toxin therapy for TMJ helps reduce abnormal muscle contractions of the TMJ and other areas in the facial region. This reduction in contractions leads to muscle relaxation to alleviate facial pain and prevent further damage to the teeth and gums.
