A combination of brilliant driving and dramatic incidents elevated Button into fifth place at Interlagos, with title rivals Sebastian Vettel and Rubens Barrichello finishing fourth and eighth respectively.
That left Button with a 15-point cushion over Vettel, while Barrichello is two points further back with just one race remaining.
Button becomes the 10th British driver to claim motor sport's greatest prize, inheriting the crown from last year's winner Lewis Hamilton.
The 29-year-old may not have wrapped it up in the way he would have liked, having won six of the first seven races, but his Brawn GP team also claimed the constructors' title just over 10 months after they appeared to be on the scrapheap when Honda pulled out of the sport.
Naturally, the tears and the champagne flowed at the end of 71 laps, with Button's father John admitting he and his son "cried like babies" when they embraced each other after the race.
That was an outpouring of relief, emotion and jubilation, as Button said afterwards: "You don't win the world championship and feel relief, you feel ecstatic.
"All the memories, good and bad, go through your mind, not just from this year, but previous years in the sport, especially this year.
"I had such a great start to the season and then the last few races were pretty stressful for me because the pace was there, but we struggled a few times.
"It made it very difficult for me because mentally that hurts when you are not able to get the best out of the car that day, but also I read too many newspapers and magazines and there were some negative comments.
"It's tough when you are a RESULTS driver and you are at the top of your game, but the great thing is there's a lot of good stuff that has been written about this year, and so there should be.
"This team has done staggeringly well and what we've achieved this season after the winter we've had is exceptional, and I don't think there has been a season like it in Formula One.
"It's great to be sat here as world champion and I personally think I thoroughly deserve it. I've been the best over 16 races and that's what world titles are all about. FORMULA ONE BRAZILIAN INTERLAGOS, SAO Sa´o
