Read more to learn about the connection between Botox and TMJ treatment.

How can Botox Relieve TMJ Symptoms?

In this form of treatment, Botox is injected by a professional into areas that may cause jaw tension and other TMJ symptoms. The treated areas are relaxed, relieving pain and increasing mouth movement ability. 

TMJ disorder symptoms that may be relieved with Botox injections include:

  • Tension or pain in jaw
  • Headaches
  • Jaw clicking and limited mobility
  • Clenching and grinding

How does Botox Treatment for TMJ work?

TMJ pain arises when the joint becomes displaced or is overworked. In sessions with professionals like the experts at The Art of Dentistry & Spa, Botox is injected into areas that may include the jaw, forehead, and temple muscles. Botox relaxes certain muscles responsible for chronic TMJ pain and reduces their spasm and tension.

To maintain relief, it is highly recommended that patients have regularly scheduled appointments to receive Botox.
