Botox for Jaw Pain? Carrollton, GA
Injections for Jaw Pain Carrollton GA

You may know Botox as the most popular way to eliminate wrinkles without surgery. However, did you know that Botox may be your answer to frustrating TMJ symptoms too?  The TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is the jaw joint that allows you to yawn, speak and chew. Unfortunately, the TMJ is also a common source of discomfort for many patients. When this jaw joint gets overworked, inflamed or strained, it can lead to jaw pain, jaw stiffness, headaches, facial pain and much more. For many, dental Botox is an easy, quick and effective solution to these highly disruptive TMJ issues.

How Does Botox Target TMJ Symptoms

Botox is an FDA approved injectable product. It is a neuromodulator, which means it works by temporarily relaxing targeted muscles. In terms of anti-aging, Botox relaxes the muscles that create unwanted wrinkles and fine lines. However, when used for TMJ, it can relax the muscles that are over-straining and irritating the jaw joint.

TMJ issues (or TMD) are typically caused when the surrounding muscles work too hard. This is often the case in patients who grind or clench their teeth on a regular basis. Bruxism also tends to be a subconscious or nighttime habit, which makes it especially hard to stop. However, when a skilled dentist injects Botox, it can relieve the jaw tension by rendering the targeted jaw muscles unable to move in such a forceful manner. Only certain jaw muscles are injected, which means patients are still able to open and close their mouth and use their jaw like normal, but the discomfort and pain can be greatly reduced.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Calm and peaceful office.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
