What is botox for TMJ?
It is used to relax and relieve the pain or discomfort you are experiencing in or around your jaw. Botox is a highly effective injection that blocks the nerves that cause muscles to contract. This blockage lets relaxation occur, which can reduce the pain and increase the movement of the jaw. Botox can relieve symptoms for at least three months. Botox can be used as a stand-alone treatment or with other TMJ treatments to get the best results.
Should I get botox for TMJ?
If you experience pain, discomfort from headaches, or lockjaw at times, it is worth considering getting botox to treat TMJ. Some common side effects include swelling or bruising at the injection site, itching, and stiffness. However, these botox side effects will not last for more than a couple of days. If you’ve been searching botox for TMJ near me, we offer this effective treatment as a solution for patients with TMJ! Dr. Jones and our team will evaluate your TMJ and health history and discuss with you if out of the TMJ treatments available if botox is right for you.
How much does botox for TMJ cost?
The cost will be based on how many units you use for TMJ treatments. The average cost for a botox unit ranges around $15. Depending on the severity of your TMJ pain, insurance coverage may be possible. However, due to botox being widely used as a cosmetic injection, it may not be possible. But the effectiveness makes it worth investing. If you have concerns about the cost, we would be happy to discuss your financial options when you come for your consultation.Contact Us
