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.

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.
