Botox injections help decrease or eliminate TMJ, jaw stiffness, jaw pain, migraine headaches, and other symptoms related to TMJ. Results from Botox injections typically last three to six months, and then you must repeat the treatment. However, those who opt for these injections do not seem to mind this temporary disadvantage. Typically, as time goes on, fewer injection amounts are needed to maintain the same results. Patients are delighted with this treatment option, and a high percentage return for further treatment every three to six months, deciding on this option versus surgical intervention.
