Botox for TMJ

Botox Relieves TMJ Symptoms

Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ) is a painful jaw condition characterized by tense muscles around the jaw, teeth grinding, headaches and the appearance of a very square jaw line. TMJ can make the most necessary actions, like chewing and talking, feel unbearably painful. At our spa, we have experience using Botox as a treatment for TMJ. Before your treatment, you will have an examination with our on-site physician to determine if you are a good candidate to recieve Botox treatment for TMJ. When the Botox is injected into the muscles around the jaw, it causes them to relax and relieves the unconscious spasms that cause TMJ to develop. At first, the Botox treatments will need to be repeated every three months, but over time the dosage can decrease and you may not need the Botox treatments very often.

Benefits of Treating TMJ with Botox

With the Botox treatments, you will get relief from the pain and headaches associated with TMJ. The Botox will allow the muscles to correct their habit of holding tension and reduce teeth grinding to keep you from having severe dental problems in the future. As you can see in the video from The Doctors below, many people are now getting their TMJ treated with Botox and experiencing great results. As an added benefit, the Botox will firm, tighten and remove wrinkles from the skin. By weakening the muscles around the jaw, the Botox will also allow the face to appear more feminine and less boxy from the bulky face muscles.
