Many people suffer from facial pain, whether it be headaches, migraines, jaw pain, TMJ pain, or neck and shoulders. There can be many different causes of facial pain and muscles are a common source. You may wonder “How can my dentist help me with headaches?”
Well, in today’s society, many of us suffer from clenching, grinding, or other bite related issues. Some causes can be from stress, unbalanced bite, or even teeth grinding associated with sleep apnea. The two main muscles responsible for elevating the lower jaw are the masseter and the temporalis. When these muscles are constantly being contracted, the result can be headaches, migraines, joint pain, or other type of facial pain.
Botox/Xeomin is a non-invasive treatment used to help relax the muscles that not only cause wrinkled, but also pain from migraines, TMJ symdrome, clenching, grinding and other types of facial pain. One treatment can last up to 3 months and is fairly inexpensive when you consider the cost of typical migraine medication for 3 months.
