Botox treatment in the Masseter (TMJ) for clenching, grinding & bruxism
Botox Is The Solution
Solve Bruxism, TMJ, Teeth Cleaning & Grinding Teeth
Do you find yourself waking up with a sore jaw from grinding during the night? Or, do you find yourself unknowingly grinding throughout the day?
For many years botox has been used to alleviate many problems including wrinkle reduction, excessive sweating, chronic migraines, even overactive bladder. Its form of action involves blocking specific nerves or weakening (and sometimes paralyzing) certain muscles. Botox is the most common cosmetic treatment in the world, and for a good reason: everyone laughs, smiles, and frowns. Over time, these repetitive actions can cause deep wrinkles throughout the face and neck, making a person look older than they are. Botox injections can help relax the muscles that cause these deep furrows, making the subject look more youthful up to four months after the treatment has been administered.
How Does It Work?
A moderate dose of Botox is injected into the masseter/ jaw muscle which is responsible for excessive grinding and clenching. The Botox allows the muscles to relax and not contract so strongly when chewing. This can give a huge relief to the patient as they can finally chew and move their mouth without pain and discomfort.
As the Botox allows the jaw muscles to relax, with time, these muscles can reduce back to their normal size and soften the shape of the lower ⅓ face.
It is also hugely beneficial for protecting teeth from excessive grinding which can cause them to break and chip. This treatment can also break the cycle of repetitive tension headaches in many people.
