Located on both sides of the head at the point where the jaw meets the skull, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) allows the human being to be able to eat, swallow and perform other daily activities. If this joint is displaced or overloaded due to excessive teeth grinding, a person can suffer from severe tension headaches and severe jaw pain, certainly a long-term unfavorable condition. For this reason, many times we choose to intervene through Botox to relieve tension in the jaw, making the muscles unable to engage in the powerful and very often unconscious movement of the jaw, the main cause of headaches and pain. The pathology is also called bruxism and often those who grind their teeth do so unconsciously.

Botox can be used for this purpose in case of malocclusion, inadequate dental care, missing dental elements.The advantages are considerable from the surgical and implant logical point of view, as it can reduce the resistance of the masseters favoring the osseointegration of an implant or the osteo-repair of a mandibular fracture, as well as applications of a purely aesthetic nature.

Common symptoms of TMJ disorders include headache (often similar to migraine), earache, pain and pressure behind the eyes, popping or popping when opening and closing the mouth, pain when yawning, when opening the mouth or while chewing, jaws that "lock" or out of position, weakness of the jaw muscles, sudden change in the way the upper and lower teeth come into contact.


The advantage of treating the disorder with Botox is the great speed and effectiveness, in addition to the fact that there are few injections and no dental surgery despite the injections being administered in medical practice and the treatment does not require hospitalization, unlike the most common surgical treatments.

Patients who have experienced this treatment have reported that they have developed improvements since the second day, but the results may be visible within a week, depending on numerous factors and the clinical condition of each subject.


Areas usually affected by TMJ botulinum toxin therapy will appear relaxed and this localized relaxation will be limited. There is no risk of problems such as difficulty speaking, eating or performing certain activities. The muscles involved in the injections are the temporal, frontal and masseter muscles, but the doctor will understand where to proceed by assessing the intensity of pain and complaints of each individual patient. For this it is good to contact a specialized doctor, as each patient has his own history and clinical path. It will be the doctor who will carefully evaluate the therapy to be followed.

How long does the botulinum toxin treatment procedure last? As already mentioned, it is all relative and subjective, it depends on how many injection cycles it will take to achieve the results. The treatment procedure on average is completed within 10-30 minutes except in special cases.

Botulinum toxin treatment is not painful at all: the pain associated with the TMJ botulinum toxin treatment procedure is due only to the moment the needle penetrates the skin and muscles but it is the same discomfort that is felt with a insect bite. For particularly sensitive individuals, the doctor can opt for an anesthetic cream. Many people fear the dentist because they are afraid of needles and the drill, but just a little specific gas is enough to remove all fear.

After the botulinum toxin is injected, the muscle tenderness of the treatment will begin to disappear almost immediately. Wrinkles begin to disappear within 24-48 hours after injections and you may continue to see them diminish for up to a week after the treatment procedure with this type of Botox. Although by no means an invasive procedure and almost free of side effects, temporary mild bruises such as numbness or redness have been found around the injection sites, all side effects of little concern but not to be underestimated. The effectiveness varies from subject to subject, some for example have not noticed improvements while others have changed their life for the better, depending on the response that their body will give to this innovative treatment.

After the treatment, the patient can immediately return to normal activities, but to avoid spreading the toxin to other muscles, they must absolutely not rub or massage the area injected with the botulinum toxin and remain upright for a number of hours dictated by the specialist, also limiting sport and physical activity in general.

It could happen that the therapy may lose its effectiveness if there are no breaks between one cycle and another, as the body develops certain antibodies to fight the toxin. One way to delay this natural resistance is to use the lowest possible dose for longer time intervals. Treatment should be avoided during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

The most common reported side effects of botulinum toxin treatment are headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary dropping of the eyelid, and nausea. The less commonly reported effects of botulinum toxin are pain, redness at the injection site and muscle weakness. These symptoms are believed to be related to the botulinum toxin injection and occur within the first week. There may also be localized bruising at the injection site.
