If you suffer from TMJ or frequent headaches, you’ve probably come across the option of Botox injections as a treatment. Botox is a neurotoxin protein that is made from botulinum toxin Type A. It is an injectable used in the cosmetic industry to temporarily reduce or eliminate facial lines and wrinkles by paralyzing muscles in the face. It was FDA approved in 1989 for the treatment of eye muscle issues and in 2002, approved for severe frown lines. In 2013, it was approved for crow's feet. Currently, Botox is not FDA approved for TMJ disorders. However, some medical professionals are offering this treatment for TMJ problems with a medical release from the patient.
