The FDA (Federal Dentist Association) says Botox® injection has shown to prevent TMJ and headaches.

Botox® treatment procedure typically can be completed 10-30 minutes and can easily be done conjoining your other scheduled dental appointment. The treatment pain is very minimal and brief, which is typically described as “a prick” or “bug bite”. Most patients experience improvement immediately to up to a week.
