Your BOTOX Treatment: How it Works

Before receiving your BOTOX treatment, a consultation will establish your goals and desired outcomes. Once Dr. Glosman decides that BOTOX is needed, we will schedule you to visit our Beverly Hills dental studio.

The treatment involves injecting the neuromodulator BOTOX directly into the jaw muscle, causing the clenching. This relaxes the muscle so that you're unable to apply as much force. As a result, you experience less damage to the enamel, less inflammation, and fewer associated symptoms.

Easy Treatment to Ease Your Jaw Symptoms

BOTOX treatment for your jaw is quick, easy and minimally painful. For most patients, the treatment feels like a simple pinch. We can apply a mild anesthetic to the injection site if you have concerns, sensitive gums, or anxiety with needles. We’ll also provide simple aftercare instructions to address any tenderness that may occur after treatment.

The BOTOX should last 4 to 6 months, after which we will schedule follow-up treatments so that you can continue to manage your symptoms and protect your teeth. The process is quick, easy, non-invasive, and you can feel the relief within a few days.

Why BOTOX Therapy for Jaw Disorders? Choosing Relief

Without treatment, TMJ syndrome and bruxism can both trigger persistent tooth-grinding that wears down the enamel and dentin of your teeth. Dr. Glosman’s state-of-the-art treatment uses targeted injections to provide treatment where it’s most needed. 

Therapeutic BOTOX® shouldn’t be confused with cosmetic BOTOX®. Cosmetic BOTOX® is generally intended to reduce signs of aging along the forehead, frown lines, crow’s feet, and other areas of the face. Therapeutic Botox uses the same FDA-approved process to target certain jaw-muscle disorders. Though it’s not typically used as a cosmetic procedure, patients should notice reduced wrinkles near the injection site. 

Why BOTOX Therapy for Jaw Disorders? Choosing the Right Treatment

BOTOX® is the only FDA-approved treatment of its kind. You know it as the superstar in injectable anti-aging treatment: initially marketed for treating frown lines. But now, this purified protein can also be used to reduce the activity of key facial muscles responsible for grinding and biting. 

BOTOX can partially deactivate tight and painful muscles when properly administered, thereby alleviating discomfort and reducing conscious and unconscious behaviors contributing to TMJ syndrome, bruxism, and other jaw-related issues.
