Botox® for TMJ

Are you experiencing jaw pain? Do you often find yourself waking up and finding that your teeth are clenched? If so, you may be experiencing TMJ.

There are several potential treatments for TMJ. If you’re experiencing discomfort due to this issue, we recommend finding a dentist who offers Botox® for TMJ near you. This is a simple procedure that offers fast relief.

On this page, we’ll discuss what you need to know about TMJ and using Botox® to treat it.

Is TMJ a Medical or Dental Issue?

Sometimes, patients are unsure whether they should go to their dentist or their doctor to get treatment for TMJ. This is complicated by the fact that the condition has several different potential causes:

If you come to our office, we can help you determine whether the problem is rooted in medical or dental causes. Either way, though, TMJ can often cause problems with your teeth. This is why it’s often a good idea to see a dentist to treat your TMJ.

We have a variety of solutions available at our disposal. Along with offering Botox® for TMJ, we may also recommend medication, nightguards, or even surgery.

How Long Does TMJ Botox® Last?

For the purposes of relieving TMJ, Botox® typically lasts 3-4 months. Cases can vary, and we will speak with you before and after the procedure to let you know if this timeline could be altered in any way.

We may recommend other treatments in tandem with Botox®, depending on your situation.

Does Botox® for TMJ Change Your Face’s Shape?

Botox® for TMJ can change your face, typically for the better. TMJ causes you to clench your jaw, which in turn can lead to your face appearing wider than it otherwise would.

Typically, pain relief is the main reason why we recommend finding a place near you to get Botox® for TMJ. That said, we also speak with some patients looking for a way to address cosmetic issues caused by TMJ.

Of course, if you are concerned with Botox’s impact on the shape of your face, we will be happy to discuss it with you beforehand. If we believe Botox® for TMJ may alter your appearance in any way, we will inform you ahead of time.
