Teeth Grinding Treatments
The medical term for grinding or clenching of the teeth is Bruxism. It often occurs during sleep, when we are unaware of it, and can cause multiple symptoms which include facial and jaw pain, headaches, earache, poor sleep patterns and anxiety.
Long term this can lead to complications such as wearing down of the enamel of the teeth which can lead to increased sensitivity and dental damage.
Teeth grinding treatment options
Botulinum Toxin injections offers one treatment option for teeth grinding. Injections into the masseters muscles, just below the jawline , can relax this muscle, preventing grinding.
