Cosmetic Injections for TMJ Treatment

Botulinum neurotoxin for TMJ in Jacksonville, FL can be highly effective. One 2012 study found that B0T0X treatments significantly decreased pain and increased mouth movements for three months following the treatment. Another study found that symptoms improved in 90% of participants. And there are still many studies being conducted on this treatment even today!

B0T0Xn is typically recommended as a complementary treatment to other TMJ therapies, like night guards or physical therapy. But there are cases where a B0T0X treatment is all that’s needed to get those muscles to relax. Once you get those muscles around your TMJ to unclench.

Here’s what you can expect from a B0T0X for TMJ treatment: • We’ll work together to determine the number of injections you’ll benefit from. • You’ll likely receive several injections throughout your facial muscles, like your forehead, temple, and jaw muscles. Most of our patients report very little discomfort from these injections. A cold ice pack after treatment will usually feel good. • You can return to your regular daily activities as soon as you leave the office, but avoid rubbing or massaging your face for a few hours. • You’ll begin to feel some improvements within a day or two of treatment, but more often it takes several days before you’ll really start to notice a big difference.

That’s it! It’s really quite simple and the treatment will last about 3-4 months. Have more questions? Give us a call or book online by clicking the appointment link below!
