Bruxism / Teeth Grinding
Treatments to help relax your masseter muscles
Do you grind your teeth at night? Bruxism, or teeth grinding, often occurs as a result of stress and anxiety where the muscles we use to chew our food start to contract in an uncontrolled way. You may have noticed a pain in the side of your jaw, or your partner might have heard the grinding noise at night. Bruxism can lead to headaches, pain in the jaw and damaged teeth.
At Medicetics we may be able to treat bruxism with anti-wrinkle injectables, most commonly Botox, to help relax the muscles around the jaw. It’s often an effective, quick and affordable cure.
If you suffer from Bruxism, it is likely you have a wider jaw due to the masseter muscles getting larger with continued use. After treatment with anti-wrinkle injections, the masseter muscles will reduce, creating a slimmer jawline.
