TMJ

BOTOX® for TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint)

Botox is best known for its aesthetic uses, but it also has medicinal uses. Studies have found BOTOX® to be effective at relieving TMJ caused by jaw tension, teeth grinding, or lockjaw.

Our certified experts are trained to offer BOTOX® treatments for TMJ in a comforting setting that fits your needs.

What is TMJ?

TMJ refers to a variety of disorders involving the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which connects your jawbone to your skull. TMJ disorders can lead to pain in your jaw joint or the surrounding muscles.

TMJ disorders are often temporary, but ongoing problems are often caused by genetics, arthritis, jaw injury, or teeth grinding.

The symptoms associated with TMJ typically include:

  • Pain in the jaw area
  • Pain around the ear
  • Pain while chewing
  • Locking of the jaw joint

TMJ Treatment Options

If TMJ symptoms persist, there are a few treatment options.

Taking care of your jaw with jaw exercise and eating more soft foods is a common suggestion, while also using heat or cold packs.

Dentists may recommend a night care or corrective dental treatments to fix the alignment of your jaw.

At Prime Youth Aesthetics, we specialize in using BOTOX® for TMJ. Botox will be injected in your jaw muscles, along with the temple and forehead depending on your symptoms. Each treatment session will take only 10-30 minutes, and you can return to your daily activities immediately after.

Does Botox Treat TMJ?

Botox has been an effective option for some people since it relaxes the muscles around your jaw, which contribute to the TMJ pain.

Some people report improvement within a couple days of treatment, but for many it will likely be closer to a week.

Results will vary. A consultation is always required prior to this treatment, as botox treatments for TMJ aren’t always the best option depending on the unique cause of your disorder.
