Muscle relaxant inject into the TMJ muscles often eliminate headaches, reduce neck and back pain resulting from teeth grinding and jaw tension
The masseter is a strong muscle that attaches on the side of the jaw and helps in chewing. It can be easily seen or felt when clenching your teeth. In patients with square or rounded jaws, injecting Botox or Dysport into this muscle can reduce its bulk, and sharpen the jaw-line. A rounded or square jaw-line becomes a V-line, creating the effect of having looked like you lost 5-10 pounds.
