For Tempromandibular Joint Disorder

Masseteric Botox

At Square Mile Dental Centre, we can use Masseter Botox to treat temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMJD. TMJD is a condition involving jaw clenching and teeth grinding – also known as bruxism – which can go on to cause migraines, persistent headaches, and increased tooth wear. It can be extremely painful and even debilitating for some patients, for whom painkillers might not even offer any relief.

With Masseter Botox, we are treating the cause, rather than the symptoms, however, and patients who take up this treatment invariably experience a huge amount of relief. Masseter Botox treatment involves injecting small amounts of botulinum toxin into the masseter muscle which is in the jaw area. This then weakens the muscles there, stopping the action of grinding and clenching from occurring; therefore reducing and even eliminating the occurrence of headaches, migraines, and tooth wear.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Masseter Botox permanent?

The effects of your Masseter Botox will wear off within 3-4 months, at which point you may want to come back in to receive the treatment again.

Will it hurt?

We’ll apply a numbing agent to the area being treated, so you won’t feel the injection being applied.

What are the risks associated with Masseter Botox?

Masseter Botox is a safe treatment, and there are very few risks involved. However, there are some potential side effects such as swelling, pain, or bruising at the site of injection, a headache or flu-like symptoms, crooked smile, and drooling.

What are the follow up or aftercare procedures?

There is no downtime involved with this treatment, and you should be fine to return to your normal day and activities. However, we would advise you try to avoid rubbing or putting pressure on the area that has been treated, and you might want to avoid exercising for 24 hours afterwards.

The team at Square Mile Dental Centre are outstanding. Under Dr. Sanjay and Dr. Nikhil Sethi's excellent care, my gum condition is now greatly improved and my confidence has returned. Dr Elaine Mo and Dental Nurse, Shazna Begum have provided highly skilled, encouraging and patient support with teeth straightening using invisalign. I can't recommend this team highly enough.
