TMJ disorders involve the muscles, joints, and nerves of the jaw, and are linked to chronic myofascial pain and migraines. Botulinum toxin can help ease the tension on these strained muscles, so the parts of your jaw work together in pain-free harmony.
Botulinum toxin targets specific muscles, enabling them to relax. This leaves you with decreased tension around the eyes and forehead, with the added benefit of a rejuvenated appearance for months.
Does your smile show too much of the upper gum line? Botulinum toxin can help reduce the appearance of a gummy smile by relaxing the muscles of the upper lip. After receiving treatment, your lips will cover any excess gum tissue when you smile, restoring balance to your naturally beautiful grin.
During your consultation, we’ll discuss your personal smile goals, and discuss how botulinum toxin treatments may be able to help you achieve your unique vision. Additionally, if you’re experiencing jaw pain, we’ll find out if botulinum toxin therapy can help relieve your discomfort.
Once we’ve decided if botulinum toxin therapy is a suitable fit, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that covers the initial set of injections. Botulinum toxin treatment generally lasts between 3-6 months, so we’ll be sure to schedule any follow-up appointments for additional injections.
After cleaning and sanitizing the treatment site, a thin needle is used to inject botulinum toxin into the targeted areas. You and your dentist will decide if you require any numbing for the procedure to keep you comfortable and out of pain.

Botulinum toxin has been shown to be effective in relieving patients of pain associated with temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders. Although the direct cause of TMJ disorders can be hard to pinpoint, the symptoms often include pain or tenderness in the jaw or around the ear, headaches, pain while chewing, and even lockjaw in more extreme cases. Botulinum toxin targets the TMJ muscles, causing them to stop contracting and relax, which often allows the whole TMJ system to realign and work in harmony, relieving you of your TMJ-related pain.
Dentists are experts at more than just teeth. Not only do they have extensive knowledge of the face and jaw, but botulinum toxin can often complement many different dental treatments and procedures. For patients with TMJ disorders or bruxism, botulinum toxin may be used in conjunction with a night guard to minimize pain and the effects of jaw clenching and teeth grinding. Botulinum toxin can even be used to help patients’ mouths adjust to a new set of dentures!
Botulinum toxin can usually last anywhere from 3-6 months before requiring another round of injections. Although they can last quite a while, the results are still not permanent and will require follow-up appointments and additional injections to maintain their effectiveness.
Botulinum toxin therapy does not provide instant results. While you may notice some changes right away, it generally takes full effect in 3-4 days after treatment.
