HOW DOES BOTOX® TREAT TMJ DYSFUNCTION?

The first step is to undergo a consultation with the dentist. We will determine whether or not you are a candidate for treatment by evaluating your condition.

Botox® is injected into the affected head and neck muscles. The active ingredient in Botox® blocks nerve signals and relaxes the muscles that contribute to facial pain.

Although Botox® treatment only takes a few minutes, the procedure can produce results that last as long as three months. After a series of treatments, the patient may be able to train the facial muscles to relax.

A potential added plus of Botox® treatment is a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles.

ABOUT BOTOX®

Botox is FDA approved to temporarily treat wrinkles and has been used for cosmetic purposes for nearly 20 years. It is also FDA approved for the temporary relief of headaches and can be used as TMJ therapy to alleviate TMJ pain.

Kerri Heiden

Always a wonderful and comfortable experience at Vassey Dental Partners. Their entire staff is just awesome, start to finish. I would never go anywhere else!!!

Angela Leverette

I’m an Army veteran who has experienced a head trauma. I have a lot of dental issues going on inside of my mouth! I was looking for a dental office who would listen to my concerns and help. Dr. Morgan was excellent! During my consultation, he took the time to understand what issues I was having and explained, in details, my treatment plan. Some of my issues can be solved with easy tasks outside of the dentistry. He suggested massages and physical therapy to help with my TMJ. He also explained what could be causing my sleep apnea and teeth clinching. I totally trust this office with the care of my teeth!

Jessica Morris

I saw this practice back in 2013 when I was 9 months pregnant with my daughter and I had a tooth abscess on me out of the blue. Of course it was nearly 5pm on a Friday evening, and my dentist at the time was nowhere to be found. Out of desperation I ended up finding Vassey by chance online, and I called their on call number (they are one of the ONLY PRACTITIONERS WITH AN ONCALL NUMBER LISTED!) and within minutes I had a provider calling me back. Keep in mind—I was NOT an established patient, but that did not matter to them at all. I had antibiotics called in, and something for the pain to hold me over until Monday where they had an emergency appointment waiting for me. Turns out, I needed a root canal and they worked with Dr. Brown (who also an excellent endodontist) to get me in that same day. The care they provide here is second to none. Vassey truly takes dentistry beyond a “once every six months” for your annual cleanings and makes it into a relationship. It’s a partnership, and I appreciate the heck out of it!! I was so sad that my insurance changed and I couldn’t swap over to them—but I was finally able to make the move, and I’m never looking back! If you’re new to the area, or if you need a new dentist to call “home”—your search is over. Make the call today 🫶🏻.

Always a great experience. I've been a patient here over twenty five years and would not hesitate to have work done by anyone at this practice. The front desk staff is always a pleasure to deal with. The hygienists take the time to get to know you as a person, not just a patient, and the dentists all go above and beyond to make sure that you are expertly taken care of. Exceptional care from exceptional people.

FAQ

What is Botox treatment?

Botox treatment is a simple injection of Botox into the impacted muscles in the neck, face, and jaw. This is done in-office through our dentists who are trained and approved in the procedure by the Georgia Board of Dentistry.

How long does it take for Botox to work?

Botox does not work immediately, but over three to five days after the treatment, patients experience a reduction in pain and a relaxing of the muscles.

Is Botox painful?

No, the Botox injection itself is not painful, but it may cause discomfort similar to a small bug bite. Typically applying ice to the site of the injection or injections is all that is required. Some people may also choose to apply a small amount of numbing cream for a day after the procedure.

How long does Botox last?

Each individual is different, but most patients will find results lasting about 3 months, with the results extended further with subsequent treatments. It is also possible to train muscles to relax, which limits the need to continue with Botox therapy.

Should I do anything to prepare for treatment?

Our staff will provide information prior to your scheduled treatment. With any Botox treatment, do not drink alcohol or use any NSAID medication or blood-thinning medication prior to the treatment without talking to our dentists in advance. Discuss any supplements or prescription medication with the dentist during the consultation appointment. Do not wear makeup on the area to be treated.

Are there side effects for Botox treatment?

Some people may experience slight bruising and redness at the injection site that naturally fades in a few hours to a day. There are some side effects with Botox, and our dentist will review those with you at the consultation and again at the treatment.

How much does Botox treatment cost?

The cost of Botox treatment is based on the specifics of each patient’s treatment plan.
