Relax Your Jaw, Reclaim Peace Of Mind

TMJ treatment in Highland Park, IL

Say goodbye to TMJ & teeth grinding. 

We can do facial slimming using Botox®/Dysport® injections into the masseter muscle. The masseter is a chewing muscle located at the angle of the jaw.

Botox/Dysport masseter injections can also be used to treat TMJ and teeth grinding/clenching. That means our team can help treat problems such as tooth wear, mouth pain, and headaches.

How it works

Most patients find that our masseter injections are very tolerable. The treatment takes only about 10 minutes. People who have the injections for the first time feel relief afterward, due to the tension relief in the masseter muscle.

Dr. Perlis will ask you to clench your jaw while she identifies the masseter muscle. She will then inject Botox/Dysport in this area of the jaw.
