BOTOX Treatment

Botox Treatment at TDA

At TDA, we offer therapeutic applications of Botox for the treatment of symptoms our patients experience with TMJ, migraines, and bruxism. We are also trained and certified to provide cosmetic Botox to relax and refresh your appearance and improve the look of your smile.

What is Botox?

Botox treatment is minimally invasive and can be administered right in our office. Most people see the results of Botox treatment within days and the results can last for months.

Botox, short for OnabotulinumtoxinA, is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It can be used for both medical and cosmetic treatments.

Why Should You Get Botox Treatment From a Dentist?

Precise knowledge of the facial structure, including the muscles, nerves, and blood vessels, is crucial to the safe and effective administration of Botox treatment. As part of their dental training, dentists spend years studying and becoming familiar with the intricate anatomy of the face. This specialized training allows dentists to provide precise Botox injections that are more accurate and often less painful.

TMJ Disorders

TMJ disorders are caused by muscle strain which leads to the dysfunction of the temporomandibular joints, which connect the lower jaw to the skull. This strain can be caused by excessive teeth grinding, jaw injuries, arthritis as well as everyday wear and tear.

TMJ disorders can cause symptoms like moderate-to-severe pain in the muscles of the face, jaw, neck, and shoulders; headaches; clicking and popping of the jaw; and bite misalignment. If left untreated, TMJ disorders can cause problems including the premature wearing down of teeth and gums, interrupted sleep, and pain severe enough to disrupt normal daily activities and routines.

Using Botox to treat TMJ disorders has proven to be an effective way to quickly relieve symptomatic pain and discomfort. Botox treatment relaxes the overworked muscles in the face, neck, and shoulders, allowing them to release the strain that causes TMJ disorders.


While the actual causes of these intense headaches are unclear, the pain they cause can be debilitating. During the onset of a migraine, people are often unable to take part in day-to-day activities and may experience fatigue and depression after the migraine has cleared.

Migraines are treated by injecting Botox into the pain fibers that cause these severe headaches. Botox treatment for migraines has been shown to not just alleviate the pain caused by a migraine, but also to lessen the frequency of migraine attacks.


Bruxism is a condition that is characterized by excessive grinding or clenching of the teeth. Over time, bruxism can lead to damaged teeth, jaw pain or fatigue, and headaches.

Botox treatment can help people with bruxism by temporarily blocking the signals passed from nerves to muscles, causing the targeted muscles to relax. This treatment can also reduce the intensity of teeth grinding and clenching, helping to protect teeth from further damage.

Botox Cosmetic

For over 20 years, Botox has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic treatments. It works by temporarily relaxing facial muscles in targeted areas. Some of the most common cosmetic uses for Botox include:

  • Reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: Botox Cosmetic is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows (also known as “the elevens”), around the eyes, on the side of the nose (commonly called “bunny lines”) and in the mouth and chin area.
  • Prevention of premature aging: Increasingly, people are finding that starting Botox treatment from a young age can reduce or even prevent future fine lines and wrinkles from developing.
  • Correction of high smile lines: Also known as “gummy smile,” Botox Cosmetic can be used to relax the upper lip, achieving a smile that doesn’t extend beyond the teeth.

If you are suffering pain and discomfort from the symptoms of TMJ, migraine headaches, or bruxism, Botox can offer you effective and long-lasting relief with a treatment that takes just minutes to administer. If you want to just look and feel better about your appearance, Botox can ease or prevent the signs of aging or transform your smile.

If any of these situations sound familiar to you, we urge you to schedule a consultation with one of our knowledgeable and experienced Botox providers. Botox at TDA can transform your life for the better!
