Botox (Neuromodulators) for TMJ/TMD and Facial Pain
Although my practice is limited to cosmetic facial surgery of the head and neck, I am one of top 3% of Botox injectors in the country and therefore see a wide range of Botox patients. Some of these patients are referred for Botox injection in the facial muscles that involve facial pain syndromes, TMJ and TMD. Relaxing these muscles can improve the patients pain and function and decrease stress on the jaw joint. This video demonstrates injection for muscle spasm of the masticatory (chewing) muscles.
See the video below for actual patient injections.
