Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injectable made of botulinum toxin. Along with Dysport® and Xeomin®, it can reduce signs of aging, TMJ pain, headaches, and more. TMJ disorders cause problems with jaw joint function and muscles that control the joint.

For what is Botox used?

Dr. Rozenberg uses Botox to address the following.

  • TMJ disorders and pain
  • Migraines
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Excessive sweating

She also offers Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and other dermal fillers for better facial symmetry and an increase in volume to help you achieve youthful beauty alongside a smile you’re proud of.

What are the symptoms of TMJ?

If you experience the following signs or symptoms, you may have TMJ.

  • Aching facial pain
  • Tenderness in your jaw
  • Pain around your ear
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Pain with chewing
  • Locking of your jaw
  • Difficulty opening or closing your mouth
  • Popping sounds when you open your mouth
  • A stiff jaw

Simple treatments using Botox at Rozenberg Dental NYC alleviate pain or discomfort caused by TMJ disorders without surgery or downtime.

Is Botox right for me?

Dr. Rozenberg reviews your medical history, symptoms, and desired outcome to determine if Botox is right for you. She also completes a dental exam and X-rays. 

If you suffer from TMJ pain, migraines, excessive sweating, or undesirable signs of aging, chances are Botox can improve your quality of life.

If Dysport or Xeomin is a better option for your needs, Dr. Rozenberg discusses them with you at your appointment.

What happens during Botox injections?

If you’d like, Dr. Rozenberg can numb the treatment area prior to Botox injections to make the procedure comfortable. She injects botulinum toxin beneath your skin to reduce wrinkles or into jaw muscles associated with chewing to relieve TMJ pain. 

What should I expect after treatment?

There’s no downtime after receiving Botox injections or dermal fillers, so you can get back to a normal everyday routine right away. You may notice results from Botox a few days after the injections, and they should last up to four months. 

Dr. Rozenberg might suggest a series of Botox injections to give you the best possible outcome, and regularly scheduled touch-ups to maintain results.
