Botox for TMJ Pain Relief

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can cause jaw pain and dysfunction. TMJ affects millions of people of varying ages, resulting in jaw and facial pain, headaches, earaches, popping in the jaw and many other symptoms. If you have a TMJ disorder and need treatment, LL Aesthetics offers Botox® for TMJ pain relief at our clinic in Miami Beach, FL.

There are many causes of TMJ disorders, from arthritis in the jaw joint to misaligned teeth. One of the common causes includes overused masseter muscles that can put pressure on the jaw. Bruxism (teeth grinding) and clenching the jaw can make TMJ symptoms worse. Bulky masseter muscles can contribute to jaw pain, as well as other symptoms like neck or shoulder pain and headaches. Relaxing the jaw muscles can relieve pain, which is possible with Botox injections.

Botox is a neuromodulator that blocks nerve signals to the muscles. Injections of Botox are used for many medical and cosmetic treatments, including muscle spasms, migraines and wrinkle reduction. It has been found that Botox is effective for TMJ pain relief for many patients suffering from this condition.

Relax Your Jaw Muscles

Botox for TMJ can relax the masseter muscles and allow the jaw to relax. The injections target some of the overused jaw muscles that can put stress on the jaw joint. The injections are placed in the jaw muscles and the effects of Botox begin working a few days after the treatment. As the muscles relax, the jaw becomes less tense and pain may begin to wane. The results of Botox can last for about four months and during this time, the jaw muscles can shrink in size, which can help minimize stress on the jaw.

While the effects of Botox are temporary, repeated treatments can have long-lasting jaw pain relief for many people with TMJ disorders. If overdeveloped masseter muscles are contributing to the jaw pain, reducing the strength and size of the jaw muscles can result in TMJ pain relief.

If you have TMJ and want to explore whether Botox injections may be right for you, come see us at LL Aesthetics. Contact our clinic in Miami Beach, FL, to schedule a Botox for TMJ consultation with Lisa Lifshitz, PA-C to discuss whether this treatment could give you jaw pain relief.
