Tooth Grinding, Clenching, Their Associated Headaches

Most people are aware of Botox as an anti-wrinkle treatment, but anti-wrinkle injections have a variety of medical applications too, including the treatment of excessive sweating and teeth grinding. Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, damages tooth enamel, creates tension in the jaw, and can give those who suffer from it migraines. Our clients often tell us of the tremendous relief they feel after treatment. Book an appointment with us today!

Gain Relief from Teeth Grinding

Botox for teeth grinding works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals which cause the jaw to clench. Small doses of Botox are injected directly into the masseter muscle, weakening it enough to stop the habitual grinding of the teeth. With the masseter muscle properly relaxed, you can take a break from the negative effects of teeth grinding and jaw clenching.

  • REDUCE WEAR AND TEAR ON THE TEETH

  • Botox injections are a versatile treatment, effective in reducing teeth grinding, excess sweating, and nasal flaring, as well as for their original use in treating wrinkles. In the case of excessive teeth grinding, Botox inhibits the signals which cause the masseter muscle (jaw muscle) to clench.

  • To stop teeth grinding, 3-4 Botox injections are placed in each masseter muscle, taking around 10-15 minutes in all. There’s no need for downtime, and many clients get straight on with their day.

  • Botox injections are a non-surgical treatment, and the injections are small, swift, and shallow, causing little or no pain.

  • Botox for jaw clenching is highly effective, weakening the muscle sufficiently to stop teeth grinding and jaw clenching, while having the added effect of alleviating the headaches teeth grinding can cause.

  • Anti-wrinkle injections have been used safely for decades across the world. Advancements in research and application mean that they are now used to help with an array of medical conditions.

    Botox is not advised for pregnant or nursing women, or for clients with muscle or nerve conditions that might not interact well with anti-wrinkle injections.

  • You should experience a reduction in teeth grinding within 2-3 days, with full results showing after two weeks. Results typically last for 3-6 months.
