TMD or Temporo Mandibular Joint Disorder or bruxism negatively affects a large number of Americans.

Very often people are not even aware of it, unless told by someone or their dentist notices wearing on their teeth. Teeth grinding can result in headaches, earaches, facial pain, chipped-teeth and may enlarge the masseter muscle, leading to a round-square face and wide jaw line. 20 units of Botox injections per masseter muscle will help individuals with severe bruxism.

Results from Botox treatment of bruxism start a day or two after injection and improve as the masseter muscles shrink over the following few treatments. The treatment does not interfere with chewing or smiling because the injected dose of Botox is relatively small, but big enough to stop bruxism. Additionally, patients treated for teeth grinding have reported a significant reduction in their stress level.
