TMJ Treatment with Botox®
Although still a relatively new treatment option for TMJ, Botox has been shown to improve a variety of medical conditions that are caused by hyperactive muscles. Disorders that include chronic migraines, uncontrollable blinking, excessive sweating and more have been treated with Botox, making it a natural solution for TMJ as well.
Botox works by temporarily weakening muscles . Although Botox treatment for TMJ has not yet been approved by the FDA, the injections are still highly effective at producing promising results in individuals suffering from TMJ.
Treatment works by strategically administering an injection directly into the masseter muscle, which is the muscle primarily used while speaking and chewing. It is thought that some TMJ issues stem from the overstimulation of the masseter muscle, and by injecting Botox, the muscle can relax and relieve tension in the jaw.
In order to achieve the full effects of Botox treatment, repeat sessions will be necessary over a matter of a few weeks. After two sessions, many clients feel significant relief from their TMJ disorder, and they may also notice an additional benefit: smoother skin!
