Benefits of BOTOX for TMJ

BOTOX is not just for fine lines and wrinkles. Dentistry has embraced this product as an effective solution for issues related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Individuals who undergo BOTOX treatment for TMD can enjoy:

Improved Comfort

BOTOX injections block nerve signals that cause muscle contractions. As a result, the muscles relax and discomfort is reduced.

Enhanced Function

Jaw pain can interfere with simple functions like biting and chewing. BOTOX reduces pain, allowing you to use your jaw normally once again.

Better Dental Health

BOTOX can put a stop to chronic teeth grinding and clenching, conditions that can lead to dental erosion over time.

BOTOX can help reduce headaches, earaches, jaw tenderness, and other painful symptoms...

What to Expect BOTOX for TMJ Step-by-Step

In most cases, treatment can be completed in just one visit to our office in Orchard Park, NY. Here is what to expect during your appointment:

Assessment

If it is your first time visiting Dr. Dolgos, he will conduct a thorough evaluation of your jaw. He will ask about your symptoms and feel the way your jaw joints move. In some cases, he may order x-rays or CT scans. After examining your condition, he will recommend if BOTOX injections are a good solution for your dysfunction.

Injections

If you and Dr. Dolgos agree to proceed with BOTOX, he will carefully administer the injections in strategic locations. This may include areas around your jaw, forehead, or temples. Our dentist uses very small needles, so there is very little risk of side effects or discomfort. Plus, he only uses materials from Allergan™, the creator of BOTOX, so you can trust that the injections are safe.
