Botox for Jaw Pain

Dr. Korenman is trained to administer Botox into the masseter ( jaw muscle). tmj pain 2

This relieves clicking stress which causes jaw headaches. This can also help with muscles of the head and neck that contribute to headaches.

The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is a small area on either side of your face where the mandible—or lower jaw—connects to the temple.

It is responsible for an enormous amount of facial movement during speech, eating, or even just forming expressions. As a result, it is particularly susceptible to pain and injury if anything goes amiss. Impact injuries, poorly aligned bites, teeth clenching or grinding, and daily stress can cause many different and painful disorders in the TMJ.

Botox and dermal fillers work by interfering with the transmission of nerve pain signals. They paralyze nerve endings and help relax the muscles.

If you are experiencing clicking or popping your jaw joints (TMJ’s) we may be able to help.

How are migraines related to your mouth?

This blog post is the 10th in a series of articles to inform our readers about the connection between your oral health and your overall health.


It’s called the “Mouth-Body Connection,” and it means that poor dental health can severely deteriorate your body, especially your lungs and heart, and it can also lead to a host to other conditions including migraines, Alzheimer’s disease and even some Cancers.


What is a migraine headache? migraine

Migraine is a chronic disorder characterized by recurrent moderate to severe headaches, usually affecting one side of the head and accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound.


True migraine headaches are vascular in nature. Inflammation in the mouth and especially in the presence of gum disease and infections affects all the blood vessels.

The link tmj pain 2between migraines and TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder)

  • When the jaws and teeth do not align or work harmoniously together, the patient can have neck and shoulder pain which can lead to headaches, and migraines.
  • The bite/function of the teeth could be negatively impacting the jaw joint.

Teeth that are out of alignment are more difficult to keep clean which can also contribute to gum disease.


Gum disease not only leads to severe oral health disorders, but can exacerbate overall health conditions, such as diabetes or respiratory disorders.


TMJ and your dentist

If you experience chronic, daily headaches (or even one a month) and no one has been able to resolve your issue, consider seeing Dr. Korenman.

To determine treatment, Dr. Korenman uses diagnostic technology to relax the jaw muscles. Once he knows where the muscles and jaw are most comfortable, he can apply an orthotic (or “mouth guard”) to maintain the comfortable position. For some, establishing an optimal position for long-term comfort may require wearing the orthotic for several weeks to several months.

More about gum disease

80% of people have Gum Disease and DO NOT KNOW IT! There is usually no pain involved for people until extremely late in the degeneration. Many gum problems will go unnoticed until they are diagnosed by a dentist.


The good news is that Dr. Korenman and his team are dedicated to educating the public about the dangers of gum disease and they check all their patients for it.

If you are diagnosed with gum disease, Dr. Korenman can design a treatment plan to help you keep it under control.

We urge you to call Loveable Smiles for your Total Health Dental Care appointment. 972-231-0585

This is just one of many examples of how we treat people, not just teeth.
