What’s involved in Botox® injections for TMJ pain therapy & treatments?

Botox® is injected into the affected head and neck muscles, blocking nerve signals that cause muscle movements, essentially relaxing the muscles and reducing or eliminating facial pain.

Botox® injections take only a few minutes and will remain effective for up to 3 months. Pain symptoms may return 3 months after your initial treatment. With a series of treatments, Botox® can retrain your muscles to relax and you will notice your symptoms resolve for longer periods of time.

What Exactly is TMJ Syndrome?

TMJ Doctor
Temporo Mandibular Joint Disorder, commonly referred to as TMJ or TMD occurs when there is a derangement in the normal functioning of the Temporomandibular Joint. Repetitive behaviors such as teeth grinding or clenching, gum chewing, fingernail biting, or stress lead to enlargement of the head and neck muscles.

This disorder and dysfunction results in significant pain and impairment for many individuals. Symptoms include: Grinding, migraines, chronic headaches, earaches, facial pain, and damage to the teeth. Traditional treatments for TMJ include the use of bite guards, removal of wisdom teeth, and full mouth reconstructions. These treatments usually result in limited success. Botox® and trigger point injections in the head and neck muscles are very effective treatments for TMJ Syndrome, headaches, and facial pain. Try Botox® to stop teeth grinding today!
