Botox® is a purified protein known for its cosmetic use. However, it also helps with various medical conditions, such as migraines and TMD.
When injected into specific muscles, Botox® stops your body from releasing a chemical that allows nerves to communicate with muscles. By preventing the release of this compound, Botox® interrupts nerve signals to the muscles and causes temporary muscle paralysis or relaxation.
Botox® treatment typically lasts between three to six months and has several uses. For instance, Botox® triggers specific headache-triggering muscles in the head and neck, preventing muscle contractions, easing tension, and leading to fewer migraines.
For TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder), Botox® can alleviate discomfort by relaxing the jaw muscles, which reduces grinding and clenching and lessens the strain on the temporomandibular joint.
