TMJ & Botox

Temporomandibular joint disorders are difficult to diagnose. There are several options as far as treatment. Some patients may react differently to each treatment; some may cause better effect on your specific situation.

However, Botox has a greater effect compared to the other methods to treat the same disorder. It has become more and more popular with time, as the use of Botox is associated with other cosmetic practices, not only used for TMJ.

Several benefits of using as treatment for TMJ & Botox are:

  • Elimination of headaches
  • Nighttime grinding
  • Reduces lockjaw
  • Reduces discomfort when using the jaw, for eating, speaking, etc.
  • Reduces shoulder and neck pain
  • Reduces jaw tension

The temporomandibular joint is located on both sides to your head. It is where your skull meets the jawbone.

The administration of these injections take around 30 minutes to place, depending on the amount required. During this treatment there is no need to have a designated driver or to take a cab, as your driving ability will not be impaired. Immediately after this treatment you can resume normal activities; however we recommend not exercising as it will take several days for the Botox to disperse in the muscles needed and appreciate the full benefits of the treatment.

This treatment will work for up to 3 to 6 months, depending on your TMJ diagnosis.
