Botox injections are a popular way by medical professionals to treat TMJ symptoms. FDA approved in 2002, Botox is a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes or weakens the muscles, which has been used to reduce the look of wrinkles or crow’s feet. When injected into the jaw, it can help to relax the muscles and relieve tension and pain. The results are temporary and you may need to come into the office for another session to keep the benefits of TMJ relief. However, if you’re looking for an effective, non-invasive treatment for TMJ symptoms, Botox may be the right choice for you.

Are You Having Problems With Your Jaw?
You may be wondering why a cosmetic treatment would help your Temporomandibular Joint Disorder . If we take a look at what TMJ is, we’ll have a better idea of why it makes sense to seek relief from Botox. TMJ is a condition of the temporomandibular joint (part of your jaw), which your face uses as a hinge every time you are talking, singing, chewing, or yawning. Because of these everyday procedures, over-working this joint can often lead to stress of the muscles surrounding this joint. They can tense up around the mouth area and cause face soreness, headaches, clicking sounds when you open or close your jaw, and pain and ringing in the ears, neck, and cheek area. Over time, this can lead to undue stress on the TMJ joint if it is left untreated.


Instead of trying to keep your mouth closed for an extended period of time, Botox offers a more realistic solution to relax the muscles around your jaw. With one session, Botox treatments have been shown to reduce the pain associated with TMJ for up to three months. You’ll begin to experience the benefits of TMJ relief, such as better sleep, less face soreness, and your headaches associated with TMJ will begin to fade. You’ll notice that your muscles are now more relaxed and you can relax about your TMJ symptoms as well.

Botox Session

So if you’re interested in a Botox session to treat your TMJ, contact our office today to schedule a consultation and find out if Botox is right for you. The procedure is very simple. Our medical professionals will consult with you about your desired results, take into account your medical history, and customize a Botox regimen for you. Over the course of a few sessions, your muscles around the TMJ area (e.g. jaw, forehead, cheeks) will be injected with Botox to provide the TMJ relief, and you can usually return to your normal routine right away. We recommend a cold pack after treatment to reduce any swelling, and be careful not to rub your face after the treatment for about a day. Over the next few days, the effects will be noticeable, and about after a week you will start to experience the relief of your TMJ disorder. For the next 3 months or so, you will keep these effects. When you start to feel the effects wear away at about the end of this time frame, give us a call to schedule another Botox session.
