Masseter Botox

Masseter Botox

One of the muscles that assists in chewing is the masseter. It connects your cheekbone to your lower jawbone and is located on the side of your face. Botox is a masseter Botox used when injected into the masseter. It is also known as Chin Botox.

The nerve signals of the masseter are blocked momentarily during the procedure with botulinum toxin. As a result, the muscle cannot contract.

During The Procedure

Here’s what you can expect during the procedure:

Your skin will be cleaned by a medical practitioner to lower the possibility of infection. To make the region numb, they could apply a topical anesthetic.

The botulinum toxin is prepared in a syringe. The needle in the syringe will be quite thin.

The masseter muscle is where they then insert the needle. As they inject the toxin, they gradually remove the needle.

The process might be repeated on the opposite side. Depending on what you’re treating, you may need a certain number of syringes.

Usually, the treatment takes 15 minutes.

What are the Benefits of Masseter Botox?

Many people consider the masseter botox benefits to be helpful. This states that it has the ability to lessen tooth grinding. Mouth guards and dietary adjustments are frequently used to treat teeth grinding, also known as bruxism. If you experience severe bruxism, Botox injections may be more beneficial. While weakening the masseter, botulinum toxin relaxes the jaw. By minimizing unintentional clenching of the jaw and teeth, this lessens the symptoms. The signs of TMD are so significantly diminished, as are those of a tight jaw, jaw/neck or facial pain, tooth sensitivity or pain, a dull headache, tooth damage, earache, and other symptoms.
