Tooth Grinding Treatment

Tooth grinding usually affects people with overdeveloped jaw muscles and can cause a number of more complex problems. It can destroy dental enamel, causing long lasting damage to teeth and can also cause severe headaches, as well as jaw and neck pain. Some people even grind through protective mouth-guards provided to them by dentists.

By treating the Masseter muscle with Botox, we can relax and shrink the muscle so that it reduces or stops tooth grinding altogether. This treatment is also used for jawline slimming.

How does this treatment work?

The Masseter muscles are your two main chewing muscles and are located just behind the cheeks. They control the clenching of the jaw and the grinding of teeth.

By relaxing these muscles with injections of Botox, we can relax and shrink your jaw line and reduce muscle contraction and tension.

What happens during my treatment?

No anaesthetic is required and injections are made while you are lying down comfortably. 3-6 injections will usually be given.  Arnica may be applied afterwards.

Some minimal pain may be felt.
