Botox Injections Will Change Your Life

You are probably familiar with the idea of people using Botox to relax facial muscles to help them look younger. That’s not what we are doing at Pierce & Knight Family Dentistry. We have learned to use Botox as a way to get our TMJ patients out of pain. TMJ dysfunction happens when your temporomandibular joints become over-worked and damaged. This leads to headaches, jaw pain, jaw clicking, discomfort while chewing, and pain in your neck and head. Botox is a great alternative to traditional TMJ treatments because:

  • Treatment is minimally invasive.
  • Tension is fully relieved within days.
  • Treatment is effective for orofacial pain and trigger point therapy.
  • It is easier for some than wearing an oral appliance each night (though you’ll get the most relief if you can tolerate both).
  • The effects can last for months at a time.

Call 913-251-9683 today or contact us online to find out if Botox is a good option for you. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Knight and our team at our office on Rosehill Road – not far from the Lenexa police department.

Common Questions about Botox

Does Botox work for TMJ?

Many cases of TMJ disorder involve severe tension in your jaw muscles. Botox relaxes your jaw muscles and eases the tension. This helps you feel better and regain mobility in your jaw. This can be especially beneficial when combined with other types of TMJ treatment, such as a custom mouthguard that prevents you from clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth.

How long does Botox last?

While results will vary a bit from patient to patient, the effects of Botox typically last at least three to four months. Results also tend to last longer after repeated treatments. Some of our patients like to incorporate Botox treatments into their regular visits to our office for exams and cleanings.

Are Botox® injections painful?

Just as with all of our treatments, we’ll do our best to minimize any discomfort you might feel. While Botox injections are in general relatively pain-free, we can also administer a local anesthetic that will numb the area of the injection so that you don’t feel anything at all. Our goal as always is to provide our treatments in the most comfortable manner we can.
