Masseter Botox in Turkey

What is Masseter Muscle Botox?

Botox Application in Temporomandibular Disorders (Jaw Joint)

Made works; those who have chin system problems; TMJ dysfunction disorder, functional TMJ beauties, myofascial pain disorder syndrome, temporomandibular pain dysfunction as an example botox states this development trial training.

Masseter muscle which is one of our chewing muscles should be used only while chewing.  If there is a big usage of this muscle; it increases the volume and strength of the chewing muscles in people who grind their teeth. This leads to several consequences:

  •  Jaw joint problems
  •  Head-neck pain
  •  Teeth abrasions, mobilities
  •  Jaw and face pain
  •  Clicking sound in the ear area during jaw movements
  •  Increase in lower face volume, change in face shape


Many people are not even aware that they are grinding their teeth. We frequently do Masseter and Temporal Botox application in our clinic. It also helps to have a face shaping and the face view is going back to normal.

How to behave due to the solution of jaw joint problems:

  • Physiotherapy and exercise,
  • Anti-inflammatory and analgesic,
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Oral devices (stabilization splints)
  • Joint surgery
  • Botulinum toxin


This trial is accepted for the implementation of the method. For this reason, even in cases that can go to surgery, it can be solved with botox treatment in the installation.


Botox uses in oral-face treatmens which are; bruxism and clenching of the teeth, oromandibular dystonia (OMD), facial muscle pain such as myofascial pain, trismus; spasm of the lower and upper jaw muscles to allow the opening to open, virtually muscle-oriented in hypermobility syndrome, masseter and temporal hypertrophy, headaches and neck pains. It is also known that there is no need for surgical intervention for the use of botox, which is used in joints such as recurrence mandibular dislocation.

Botox Application in Bruxism Treatment

Do not practice to generalize our dental health. We apply bruxist on temporomandibular joint, that is, joint side accommodation scale, and botox on squeezer again. This person appears to have headaches, muscle aches, and morning fatigue. Botox app for eye solving this type of app.

Injection of botox into the muscles bilaterally (in both areas) greatly reduce the mass (pain, locking jaws, clenching) in the morning for 6-78 weeks (mean 19 ± 17 weeks). Recovery with oral splint, botox application can be improved at a good level on bruxism, its rate is slower than botox.

The Effect Of Masseter Botox Treatment

We apply Botulinum Toxin to reduce the strength of the chewing muscles in case of wear of the teeth, which we call generalized wear, in people who grind their teeth. We apply Botulinum Toxin to people who have bruxist, that is, teeth clenching problems, and those who begin to show symptoms of the temporomandibular joint, that is, the jaw joint. These people may have symptoms such as head and neck pain, muscle aches and waking up tired in the morning. As a result of Botulinum Toxin application, we provide treatment by eliminating such symptoms.

Some studies Show that masseter botox before and after makes some changes on the volume of masseter.  Masseter botox affect for 6-78 weeks (mean 19 17 weeks), a bilateral injection of botulinum toxin into the masseter muscles (in both regions) greatly lessens the intensity of symptoms (such as discomfort, locking, and clenching of the jaws). Oral splints and Botox treatments for bruxism are similarly effective, albeit Botox takes longer to take effect than Botulinum Toxin

Botox Treatment To The Chewing Muscles (Masseter, Temporal)

Masseter is a quite large muscle and in the middle of the cheek, the masseter has a big effect on the shape of the face. A strong masseter muscle makes the face look square and overcontour on the low face. After treating the masseter muscle, the face shape becomes more oval or heart-shaped. When treated, the area under the cheek becomes less wide.

It has been also hypothesized to be therapeutically useful by allowing osseointegration of implants. Stress from any excessive functional force or any parafunctional habit such as clenching or squeezing can cause implant failure. For this reason, botox injection relaxes the chewing muscles and protects the implant, thus providing benefits for osseointegration, that is, the fusion of the implant with the jawbone. Thus, it is aimed to prophylactically reduce the functional forces during chewing in immediate loading.

Jaw muscles can adapt themselves to changing functional demands by changing their size, cross-sectional area and properties. However, Botulinum Toxin application facilitates muscle relaxation, especially in patients who remain toothless for a long time, making it easier for the patient to get used to the prosthesis and adapt to the prosthesis.

Accordingly; Injuries to the maxilla, mandible, zygoma, nasal bone, and orbital bone, as well as the maxillofacial region, are routinely treated with botox. Less mini-plate/microplate is used when treating fractures of the cheekbone by injecting botox into the masseter muscles. As a result, it serves as a splint to help the damaged bones heal together.

Sometimes; after receiving orthodontic treatment, some patients who have high muscle activity, such as the mentalis muscle, may relapse. During treatment, Botox injections can be used to lessen the force of muscle spasms, and after treatment, muscles can be exercised gradually with a more physiological movement.

Points To Know About The Masseter Botox

Botulinum Toxin can be used to confirm the source of pain (muscle or pulp) in patients with chronic intermittent head, neck and toothache, for example in cases of pain originating from the temporal part of the head. Botulinum Toxin can be used prophylactically as well as diagnostically in such cases.

How Much Does It Cost?

Masseter botox price depends on the dosage of the botox that we use and the muscles which should be included to the treatment plan.
