Botox for TMJ

TMJ Dejavu Medspa

Relieving Pain and Improving Functionality

Botox has been used for cosmetic purposes for years, but did you know that it can also be an effective treatment option for TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders? 


TMJD is a condition where the joints and muscles in the jaw become inflamed and painful. This can cause difficulty with chewing, speaking, clenching, grinding and even opening or closing your mouth. Botox works by relaxing the muscles in the affected area. When injected into the jaw muscle, it reduces its ability to contract and spasm. The result is less pain and discomfort associated with TMJ.

This simple injection can be done in a 15 minute appointment.

Another benefit is that Botox provides long-lasting relief from TMJ symptoms. While other treatments may only provide temporary relief, Botox injections typically last up to three to four months. Here is a list of the benefits of using Botox for TMJ:

  1. Reduce pain from TMJ syndrome symptoms such as headaches, jaw clenching/ grinding or tension due toTMJD.
  2. Improve jaw line symmetry by reducing excess muscle tone in one or both jaws.
  3. Increased self confidence.
  4. Enhanced overall oral health.


It’s important to note that while Botox can provide significant relief from TMJ symptoms, it may not be suitable for everyone. In conclusion, if you suffer from chronic TMJ pain and have tried other treatments without success, consider talking to your injector about whether Botox injections may be right for you. 


Botox has proven effectiveness at reducing inflammation and relieving pain associated with TMJ disorder. It could be the solution to your pain.
