BOTOX has been used for years to improve patients' cosmetic appearence and more recently become a popular tool in fighting TMJ and jaw pain.

When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX relieves 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. Although BOTOX treatment for these conditions is experimental; evidence suggests that it can be extremely effective.
