This study conducted among 100 patients, 50 of them with TMJ disorder and the other 50 with migraine during 12 months 2020 -2021.
The study aims to shed light upon Botox using in pain management with patients with a history of migraine and pain due to TMJ disorder, or we can say TMJ pain.
Botox is effective for migraine headaches because it blocks neurotransmitters, which bring pain signals from the brain. Botox acts as a barrier in that direction. It prevents the chemicals from reaching the nerve endings in the head and neck.
Botox is inserted into seven separate muscle areas around the head and neck to prevent migraine headaches. The forehead, bridge of the nose, temples, neck, back of the head, and just above the shoulder blades in the upper back are all affected.
In patients with chronic migraine, a response rate of 65 per cent is expected after three courses of treatment with onabotulinumtoxin A (Botox). Long-term therapy with onabotulinumtoxin A, according to a new report, is reliable, safe, and well-tolerated in patients.
Botox can help relax the muscles in your jaw.
Botox for TMJ can be highly effective. One 2012 study found that Botox treatments significantly decreased pain and increased mouth movements for three months following the treatment. Another study found that symptoms improved in 90 per cent of participants.
The effects will last anywhere from three to five months, depending on the patient. Patients will experience a reversal of facial structure and TMJ disorder symptoms as the Botox fades off and the masseter muscle expands.
