Botox, Cosmetic Surgeon, Tmd
Botox is used to stop muscle contraction but also relieves pain by preventing nerves from releasing inflammatory molecules. Botox inactivates the nerve endings that cause muscles to contract, eliminating involuntary contractions in the jaw.
Typical Botox treatment for TMJ/TMD includes around 50-75 units. The effects of Botox last for three to four months, as the constant “workout” of facial muscles in daily activity and sleep slowly remove the Botox.
