Botox® For TMJ

Botox® is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ and other associated conditions with jaw tension and pain. When Botox® is injected into muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, the Botox® will relieve TMJ and jaw tension.


Similar to other types of Botox® injections, Botox® is injected into the painful area. In this case, Botox® is inserted into the sides of the head or jaw area. When the nerves in these areas become paralyzed, they cease producing pain.


Botox® injections for TMJ are helpful for relieving jaw pain.


Botox® treatments are given every 12 weeks.

No. We use a small needle. People say the injections feel like tiny pinpricks.

Botox® sessions last 15 minutes.

Muscle tenderness will start to disappear almost immediately. There may be some temporary bruising, numbness, or redness around the injection sites.
