BOTOX For Headaches and Jaw Pain

BOTOX For Headaches and Jaw Pain

Do you suffer from migraine headaches? Do you grind or clench your teeth? Well, we have a solution for you! BOTOX is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to prevent TMJ related pain, tension headaches, and migraine headaches. What some patients may not realize is their source of chronic headaches,or migraines, may come from tension in the mouth and jaw area. I commonly see this in patients who grind their teeth or constantly clench their jaw from stress. It is common that patients are not even aware that they are teeth grinders or hold tension in their jaw because it is subconscious behavior. A common symptom that people have is they will wake up in the morning with a sore jaw and a headache. This is usually due to nocturnal grinding which may occur because of excessive stress, syndromes such as obstructive sleep apnea, or even occlusal interference (a bad bite). BOTOX injections can be a great solution for TMJ related pain and headaches. 

Before the Procedure
Clean skin is best before having BOTOX injections. We recommend that women remove their makeup prior to treatment. The doctor will assess your specific needs and  together you decide the best course of treatment.

During the Procedure
The doctor will use a very thin needle to inject BOTOX into the skin or muscles. The amount of BOTOX and number of injections depends on the area being treated and the severity of your case. 

After the Procedure
Women can apply makeup after the procedure is complete and resume normal activities. A headache for a couple of days after treatment is normal and should subside. Be careful not to rub or massage the treated area for approximately four hours and do not lie down for approximately six hours after treatment. This can cause the BOTOX to migrate to other areas.

  • formulated with 20% water to keep teeth hydrated during whitening process unlike many other whitening products on the market that dehydrate teeth
Wondering how whitening products work?

The whitening process is possible due to the ability of the carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide to freely pass through enamel and dentin to permeate to all parts of the tooth. These peroxides break down into oxygen radicals, which migrate between the enamel prisms, breaking down any colored molecules that result in tooth discoloration. The structure of the tooth is not altered; the internal tooth color is simply made lighter. Whitening agents break down into tiny molecules and move in all directions, so even if the whole tooth is not covered with gel, the entire tooth is whitened.
