Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Treatment

The temporary and partial paralysis of this powerful clenching muscle significantly reduces the bruxing forces and can be a great help in severe TMD cases. Injecting 5 units of botox into 3 or 4 sites of the masseter muscle each side of the lower jaw is a simple in officeprocedure.

Because the muscle clenching habit is inhibited, this botox treatment can also lead to the unlearning of the bruxing habit and in some cases provides excellent and sometimes lasting relief from TMD.
