Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) is a condition characterised by facial pain and dysfunction of the jaw, caused mainly by improper alignment of the mandible with the skull. This condition can cause a wide range of symptoms, such as migraines (from stressing the temporalis muscle), neck pain, tenderness or discomfort around the jaw, popping or clicking when opening the mouth, and difficulty fully opening the mouth. These symptoms often result from trauma to the joint, excessive teeth grinding and tension in facial muscles due to stress.
We treat TMJ pain by injecting a mixture of steroids, muscle relaxants and anaesthetic into the affected joint and surrounding tissue. The relaxant soothes the muscle for near-instant relief.
TMJ injections are often used to help those experiencing severe or chronic pain and inflammation of the jaw muscles, or limited jaw bone movement.
Our relaxant/anaesthetic injections relieve symptoms over time. We administer treatment locally to avoid any systemic effects that may result when taking large doses orally or through intramuscular injection. They serve as important methods of treating TMJ-related issues in patients who do not want surgery or who do not respond to other non-surgical treatments.
Knowing how to prepare can help alleviate any anxiety or nervousness on the day of your injection.
Before the day of your appointment, make sure to get a good night's sleep and eat a light breakfast.
Discuss any medications you may be taking with your doctor and decide which ones, if any, to take the day of your injection.
Look into what type of pain medications may be available after the procedure. The area around the TMJ will be numbed before injection so that you do not feel pain during the procedure, but some minor discomfort can occur afterwards.
During the appointment, we will reexamine your head, jaw, and neck and will review your medical history. We will then decide whether an injection is necessary in order to manage the symptoms and provide symptom relief.
Once ready, we will administer a local anaesthetic around the affected joint to ensure you do not feel any discomfort during the procedure. Following the injection, we may recommend further treatments, such as physical therapy or medication for long-term symptom management.
To ensure the injection sites heal optimally, avoid scrubbing or excessively touching them for at least 24 hours afterwards. Additionally, it is best to keep the area clean and moisturised by following a gentle skincare routine. Use a mild cleanser, alcohol-free toner, and a light moisturiser to hydrate your skin while preventing bacteria from invading the injection site.
Avoid excessive sun exposure while caring for your skin, as it can lead to further irritation and dryness. We also recommend avoiding exercise and alcohol for at least 48 hours after the procedure.
One common injection site for treating TMJ disorders is the frontalis muscle. This muscle, located near the forehead and eyebrows, is primarily responsible for raising the scalp when frowning or wrinkling the brow. An injection into this site can relieve pain and dysfunction associated with the TMJ.
Located on the side of the head, this muscle functions as a jaw opener and aids in closing and side-to-side motion. Although other jaw muscles can be injected to relieve TMJ pain, such as the masticatory masseter and lateral pterygoid, injecting the temporalis dramatically reduces or eliminates pain and maximises other treatments.
The masseter muscles, located on either side of the jaw, help to control chewing movements. When these muscles become overly tense or calcified, an injection into the tissue can help relax and relieve symptoms such as pain, headache, and difficulty opening or closing one's mouth. Under certain circumstances, multiplying injections may be performed directly into the masseter.
Combine our TMJ injections with other facial treatments to achieve your goals.

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) injections typically provide relief for anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks. However, the length of time that any particular injection lasts is unique to each patient and can vary depending on their individual condition, lifestyle, and other factors.
TMJ injections have a low risk of side effects and can be repeated as needed for long-term relief from chronic TMJ pain.
The best injection sites for TMJ are typically the lateral pterygoid muscle, which helps to work the jaw muscles during chewing and speaking and point tenderness in the area of the neck just below the ear. The temporalis muscle, located at the side of the head just above the ear, is another commonly used injection site.
TMJ injections can be uncomfortable or mildly painful for some patients, but there are numerous ways to manage the discomfort. For instance, the injection areas may be numbed with a topical anesthetic before the injection, and a cold-air anesthesia machine can also be used. With these measures in place, many patients report minimal to no pain during the injection.
TMJ disorder is a condition affecting the facial jaw joint muscles that control chewing. It can cause pain and tenderness in the jaw itself and may also be accompanied by headaches or facial tenderness.
