Botox Treatments for TMJ
BOTOX® is used as an alternative treatment for Bruxism and TMJ disorders and associated jaw tension and pain. We frequently see people with pain in their jaw and ears, or with chronic headaches due to clenching the teeth, also known as Bruxism.
It relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients, and often eliminates headaches resulting from teeth grinding. Stress and tension can contribute to jaw clenching and teeth grinding.
BOTOX® can even minimize lock jaw. It can also be used to relax specific muscles and relieve a number of Bruxism-related symptoms and provide significant relief to patients with Bruxism. It is $14 per unit for Botox.

TMJ can cause some of the following complications:
-Teeth Grinding or Clenching (Bruxism)
-Clicking or Popping of the Jaw Point
-Shoulder and Neck Aches
Sometimes patients have a wider jawline, and this can be caused by very powerful masseter or jaw muscles. Those seeking relief from TMJ or Bruxism symptoms with BOTOX® will find that a jaw slimming effect is a wonderful extra bonus to the procedure.
