Okuda Orthodontics Offers Relief from TMJ Disorder with BOTOX® Treatments

By: Okuda Orthodontics
HENDERSON, Nev. - Jan. 24, 2023 - PRLog -- The jaw and facial pain of temporomandibular joint disorder — or TMJD — is a reality for many. In fact, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research has found that as many as 10 million Americans suffer from this painful issue.

Fortunately, for those suffering with TMJ pain in Henderson and Las Vegas, NV, Okuda Orthodontics can provide relief: with BOTOX® treatments that target the jaw and facial muscles. As a board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Brady Okuda is a specialist in the anatomy and function of facial muscles and nerves, making him an ideal medical professional to use BOTOX® for addressing TMJ dysfunction.

Causes and Symptoms of TMJD

The most common causes of TMJ disorders include: injury to the jaw or joint, arthritis in the TMJ, chronic teeth grinding or clenching (also called bruxism), and a bite imbalance. TMJ dysfunction can worsen over time, moving from mild discomfort to severe jaw or facial pain. For some people, the pain comes and goes, for others, TMJ pain is chronic and disruptive to daily life.

Symptoms of TMJ disorders vary. Okuda Orthodontics has seen many patients with TMJD who describe symptoms such as:
  • Pain, stiffness, or fatigue in the jaw or face
  • Difficulty fully opening the mouth, or jaws that lock in an open or closed position
  • Popping, grating or clicking noises when opening and closing the mouth
  • Headaches, earaches, neck aches and/or shoulder pain
  • Swelling or tenderness on the side of the face
  • Pain in teeth
  • Painful or difficult chewing
  • Ringing in the ears

How BOTOX from Okuda Orthodontics Relieves TMJ Pain and Symptoms

BOTOX is an FDA-approved, safe injectable for both medical and cosmetic use. When injected directly into the jaw and facial muscles affected by TMJ dysfunction, BOTOX (https://www.okudaortho.com/botox-filler/) relaxes them, allowing those muscles to rest and heal. Chronic pain and muscle tension in the jaw and face are alleviated, resulting in a decrease or sometimes complete relief of TMJ pain. Relief from TMJ pain with BOTOX typically takes several sessions — the longer muscles are allowed to relax, the more they can heal.
