What Is TMJ?

TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, situated just in front of your ears on both sides of your face. These joints connect your lower jawbone to your skull and play a vital role in chewing and speaking.

What Is TMJ Disorder?

TMJ dysfunction arises when the muscles and ligaments surrounding your jaw joints become inflamed or irritated, resulting in pain that can range from mild to severe, depending on the condition’s duration.

Misalignment or overuse of the joint due to excessive teeth grinding can cause acute tension headaches and intense jaw pain. It’s crucial to address TMJ disorder promptly to avoid inflammation, dental wear, sleep disturbances, anxiety, and depression.

How Do Botox Injections Help with Teeth Grinding/Bruxism/TMJ Pain?

Our medical experts at Glow & Go administer precise doses of Botox (botulinum toxin) directly into the masseter muscle. This effectively relaxes the muscle, preventing repetitive teeth grinding and jaw clenching.

Botox treatment alleviates bruxism-related pain, reduces dental damage, and enhances your facial profile. You’ll experience fewer headaches and less jaw discomfort, leading to improved overall well-being.
