Can Botox injections help people dealing with jaw clenching or TMJ dysfunction?
For those dealing with this type of pain, plastic surgeon Dr. Ben Talei tells The Doctors the issue to address is hyperactive muscles in the jaw and he says using botox in this part of the body can shrink the muscles of the jaw and may provide relief.
He explains Botox can help with grinding, clenching, and TMJ dysfunction. The plastic surgeon notes it takes around 2 weeks after injections for the treatment to begin working. The treatment can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years. He notes activities like chewing gum often can cause the jaw pain to return quicker.
