In order for our teeth to function, the jaws must move and provide a closing movement. In order for the jaws to close, the jaw-facial muscles must move together. These muscles may be more developed and strengthened than they should be due to daily stress, muscular disorders or harmful jaw habits (bruxism). Due to the mentioned disproportionate strengthening, harmful bites that we call clenching occur. Due to this harmful closing pattern, joint pain, unusual mobility and noises may occur. As a result, “joint discomfort” occurs as a result of problems in the joints. The treatment of the disease does not consist of a single step. First of all, occlusal plates known as “night plates” are made to prevent the patient’s teeth from contacting. Then, considering the patient’s muscles, botox injection is performed into the massater and temporal muscles. Thus, teeth and joint structures can be protected.
