Is TMJ Making Day-To-Day Life A Literal Pain?

Get Lasting Relief From Jaw Pain and Discomfort


What is TMJ?

Temporomandibular joint disorders, or TMJ, are disorders of the joint that connect your jaw to your skull. With TMJ you may have pain in your jaw, clicking, limited movement, swelling and secondary symptoms such as headaches, earaches, shoulder pain, and even a ringing of the ear (tinnitus).

How to Get Rid of TMJ Without Surgery

The Allura Skin, Laser & Wellness Clinic locations in Fort Collins and Loveland offer Botox for the treatment of TMJ. Jaw tension, grinding, and headaches due to clenching and lockjaw can be reduced and/or eliminated for several months with routine Botox treatments. Consider the safe and effective treatment of TMJ using Botox and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or to schedule a free consultation.

What Causes TMJ?

There is not one direct cause of TMJ or clear understanding of why some people experience it while others don’t. Some factors that can lead to TMJ are an injury to your jaw, teeth grinding, arthritis of the joint, and stress (which can lead to jaw clenching and more teeth grinding).

You can treat TMJ with medications, the application of heat or cold, and diet changes (soft food that doesn’t require tons of chewing). However, these approaches only provide temporary relief. Luckily, there are additional treatments that can provide relief for months at a time – and they don’t require surgeries or endless doctors visits!
