What is the cause of my TMJ migraines or headaches?

Not always but in most cases, TMJ jaw pain is caused by a malocclusion (misalignment) of your bite. The muscles that control chewing can become hyper-stimulated or under-stimulated, resulting in pain in your neck, jaw, and face.

TMJ headaches can be caused by cranial neuralgia. Cranial neuralgia is characterized by severe facial pain originating from either one of three major cranial nerves, which control senses such as taste, vision, hearing, and balance (as well as part of our swallowing mechanism). It usually affects just one side of the face at a time but some people experience bilateral (both sides) pain simultaneously.

TMJ migraines, headaches, jaw pain can be debilitating. Fortunately, the number of treatment options is growing. Botox for TMJ headaches, migraines, and jaw pain is a new development that has shown great promise in reducing TMJ headaches (and/or migraines).

According to Health Canada, Botulinum toxin type A has not been approved yet as a preventive treatment for chronic migraine in adults. Nevertheless, the use of Botox for TMJ has been studied over the past decade with clear indications that Botox for TMJ Treatment can be highly effective.

One particular study found that Botox treatments significantly decreased pain and increased mouth movements for three months following the treatment. If you are suffering from jaw pain or migraines – it may be worth discussing your symptoms with your doctor first, whether Botox injections provided by a dentist in Calgary SE like Outdoor Dental, could help alleviate these symptoms.
