While botox for TMJ is considered an alternative treatment, it has many accolades for its effectiveness. For many patients, when botox is injected into the affected areas, it creates instant relief from the pain and tension associated with this disorder.

The Temporo-mandibular joint Treatment

How Does Botox Work to Treat TMJ?

The Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) is located on both sides of the face, right where your jawbone meets your skull. It is what is responsible for opening and closing your mouth, chewing, talking, etc. If one or both of these joints become inflamed or otherwise irritated, it can cause severe headaches, tooth grinding, lockjaw, and more. By injecting Botox into the joint, it disables the muscles from engaging as strongly as they were before, therefore relieving the painful symptoms associated with TMJ.

This procedure comes with minimal pain, and any associated pain is only from the injection and brief. Also, the whole process only takes about 10-30 minutes, depending on how many injections you are receiving.
