Muscle Relaxers - Muscle relaxers can help relieve the tension in the muscles around your TMJ and give you the pain relief you have been looking for.


What is TMJ Syndrome?

Temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ) is the name given to a group of symptoms that manifest as pain in the head, face and jaw. The symptoms include headaches, eye pain, soreness in the chewing muscles, and clicking or stiffness of the jaw joints.


TMJ disorders can make chewing difficult, cause pain, and damage your teeth through constant teeth grinding. Our expert dentists offer TMJ treatments such as Botox®, oral appliances, and muscle relaxers to help you find relief from your TMJ problems. Call our Cave Creek, AZ dental office today at 480-214-9060 to explore how we can solve your TMJ pain.



TMJ symptoms occur when the temporomandibular joint is not working properly or when the lower jaw is not in alignment with the chewing muscles. This results in chronic or acute ear pain, eye pain, jaw stiffness and soreness, difficulty opening the mouth, jaw popping or jaw clicking, and neck pain or migraine headaches. Sufferers of TMJ pain may experience either sharp pain or a dull constant ache.
