Jaw Muscle Discomfort
or TMD (Temporo-Mandibular Disorder)
Pain from the muscles in the face, head and neck associated with the jaw are often due to subconscious habits such as clenching and grinding (bruxism). These habits are often worse during times of stress or anxiety. By relaxing these muscles with Botulinum Toxin, pain is reduced, as is the parafunction (habit).
A thorough clinical assessment will identify the muscle groups that require treatment. It is not uncommon for these parafunctions to have additional dental effects, such as wear or breaking of teeth. Likewise, certain dental conditions can prompt such parafunctions. For this reason a dental assessment will always be undertaken prior to treatment.
