you can chew gum without any interruption with botox, but this won't help "increase the masseter." If you need immediate results you can inject filler till the masseter comes back from the botox treatment. Best, Dr. Emer.
Gum chewing after masseter treatment
You can start chewing gum at any time but it really won't make the botox go away any faster. it is going t o take a few months to wear off

There is no reason to wait. Chew away! (Maybe choose a sugarless gum to protect your teeth from cavities.)

There isn't anything stopping you from chewing gum now to build up the muscle fibers. Best of luck!
If I want to build up my masseter muscle again, how soon after jaw Botox can I start chewing gum on a regular basis?
Thank you for your question. Though your muscle mass will return in a few months once the Botox has worn off there is no reason that you can't chew gum now. Hang in there!
You can start chewing the gum right now but while the Botox is working your muscles won't bulk up as fast as they would without it. In addition, 16 units per side for masseters is not that much, so hopefully this will wear off for you quicker than the 3-4 months Botox is indicated to last.
Botox for any treatment will wear off!
Botox in the masseter muscles is not only utilized for TMJ but also to give the lower face a slimmed appearance. This procedure can help define the the jaw line and is especially helpful for those with a square jaw secondary to masseter enlargement or hypertrophy. My advise is to just wait as the good thing about Botox is that it will wear off. 16 units per side is also not a lot, so I think you will be fine in 3 to 4 months. Best of luck
Botox for masseter muscles
You can start chewing gum right away after Botox treatment for the masseter muscles. It will take several months for the Botox effect to wear off. Filllers will restore volume immediately.
