Botox Treatments For TMJ
Botox is used to treat temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) by relaxing the masseter muscle (located in the jaw) to relieve pain. It is typically recommended as a complementary treatment to therapies and can provide valuable relief to people suffering from TMD discomfort.
Common TMD Symptoms Masseter Botox Treats
- Tooth and face pain
- Bruxism (teeth grinding) and teeth clenching
TMJ relief from Botox treatments usually takes a few to several days to begin working, and the effects last from 3-4 months at a time. Masseter Botox can help to protect your teeth and can improve tooth sensitivity by reducing clenching and grinding.
