What is TMJ?
TMJ is the acronym for the temporomandibular joints, the joints and muscles in the jaw that allow you to open and close your mouth when talking, eating, swallowing or any other movement involving using your jaw. It is commonly understood that when you are talking about TMJ you are talking about TMJ disorders and non-optimum conditions. These non-optimum conditions can be severe to mild and can dramatically affect your quality of life.
TMJ disorders can include symptoms such as:
- Pain in the sides of the face
- Jaw Pain
- Neck Pain
- Muscle Stiffness in the Jaw
- Locking of the Jaw
- A Painful or Non-Painful Clicking, Popping or Grating of the Jaw Joint When Opening and Closing the Mouth
A probable major cause of TMJ disorders is night grinding; when your jaw muscle are tense or stressed you tend to unconsciously grind your teeth at night, this worsens the situation and can actually harm your teeth as well. Waking up with headaches, earaches and jaw pain are most likely the result of a TMJ disorder.
What is Botox?
Botox is a substance derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is a drug used to temporarily paralyze specific muscles that it is injected into. Cosmetically, it is used to remove wrinkles and has become a very popular method to do so.
