BOTOX® For TMJ

If you’ve been suffering from TMJ problems for a while, you know how painful and frustrating it can be. You may have seen numerous doctors and had many dental procedures. But your symptoms got worse. You may feel like TMJ has taken over your life.

TMJ symptoms can include jaw locking, cracking, or popping. Painful spasms in your jaw muscles that keep you from being able to open your mouth wide. Debilitating facial pain or jaw stiffness. Headaches and migraines are also common with TMJ.

At New York TMJ & Orofacial Pain, we have decades of experience treating TMJ problems. First-line therapies such as meditation, exercises, oral appliances, dietary changes, and physical therapy do the trick for most people. However, a small percentage of people do not respond to first-line treatments, and that’s where TMJ treatment with BOTOX® comes in.

If your symptoms are persistent, BOTOX® for TMJ may be an option. The relief it has provided for so many of our patients is nothing short of remarkable.

BOTOX® For Jaw Slimming

Bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding, can change the shape of your jaw. Over time your jawline may have become more bulky and square looking. If you’re like most people, it is a very distressing situation.

BOTOX® for bruxism at our Manhattan, White Plains, Long Island and New Jersey offices can help your masseter muscles return to their normal shape and size. While we help you reduce or eliminate the behaviors that have caused your masseters to become enlarged, BOTOX® can help.

Some patients also come to us for BOTOX® injections to slim their jaws who do not have TMJ problems. Each case is determined on an individual basis.

BOTOX® For Bruxism In New York - Choose Carefully

If you are looking for BOTOX® for TMJ treatment in the New York City metropolitan area, it’s essential to be evaluated by an experienced Orofacial Pain specialist.

Repeated injections of BOTOX® for TMJ into your masseter and temporalis muscles over a long period of time can cause problems. When not administered properly, you can end up with weakness in your jaw muscles and acceleration of joint noises, which makes it difficult to eat certain foods. It could even hollow out your temporalis muscles and flatten the contour of your face.

Orofacial Pain specialists (like those who lead our practice) have a specific focus on jaw problems. They have the experience, education, skill, and knowledge to determine if TMJ treatment with BOTOX® is the most appropriate and safest option for you.
