BOTOX® is known for its cosmetic uses and has received FDA approval for treating various medical conditions. BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a medication administered to different parts of the body to provide temporary relief for various conditions, including bruxism, chronic migraines, and TMJ disorders.
BOTOX offers a temporary remedy for TMJ disorders and other conditions because it blocks pain signals from nerves to muscles when injected into the body. When delivered by a certified BOTOX specialist, BOTOX treatments are safe.
Depending on the severity of the condition and the quantity of muscle mass, different patients require different dosages of BOTOX. Injections are typically given in areas around the jaw, neck, or ears to alleviate symptoms and pain. BOTOX treatment is a non-surgical, outpatient procedure that leaves few if any, marks on your skin since it involves just a single needle.
