Migraine pain – visit our office

TMJ BOTOXIt’s awful to suffer from migraine headaches because they are more than just a headache.  They occur on the average of one to four times a month.  Unlike a tension headache, they are often accompanied by nausea or vomiting.  And the pain is intensified by physical activity usually so severe they interfere with normal daily activities.

Statistically, about 30 percent of migraine sufferers have a warning that consists of neurologic signs and jaw pain they experience before the migraine episode begins. The most commonly experienced signs are visual, during which patients see small, colored dots, flashing bright lights or multicolored zigzag lines that may form a shimmering crescent-like shape.

The best way to cope with migraines and other headaches is not with pills.  Come in and see a dentist with experience in the use of Botox to relieve the tension created by your jaw muscles.  Botox reduces the muscle’s capability to flex, ultimately re-training your facial jaw muscle.  Over about 9 months of treatment you will begin to weened off[1] of Botox  simultaneously abating from clenching, particularly during sleep.

[1] Botox is absolutely non-habit forming.  This term of art means that you shouldn’t be forever dependent on relief from Botox treatment, which generally lasts about 3 months.
