Botox and Dysport for Treatment of TMJ and Orofacial Plan

Botox/Dysport are botulinum toxin injections that have been used for cosmetic purposes to reduce facial wrinkles. However, they have also been used in the medical field for the treatment of overactive muscle movements. They are safe and effective in treating facial and jaw pain. When botulinum toxin is injected into tense, sore jaw muscles, it can reduce or even eliminate the pain associated with TMJ disorder. Botulinum toxin is also used to treat disorders of hyperactive nerves in neuropathic pain and in treating chronic pain. Dr. Saini performs botox treatment for medical purposes only.
