When Botox® is injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort; it relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, this non-surgical procedure can even minimize lock jaw.

Treating TMJ with Botox® is a relatively quick and painless procedure.  Depending on the number of injections needed, as determined by Dr Abedi.  It is reasonable for the appointment to be completed within 10-30 minutes. Most patients describe the Botox injection pain as a “bug bite” or a “prick”
