Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding and jaw clenching (also called bruxism) is often related to stress or anxiety. It doesn’t always cause symptoms but some people get facial pain and headaches and it can wear down your teeth over time. Most people who grind their teeth and clench their jaw aren’t aware they’re doing it. It often happens during sleep or while concentrating or under stress.

Symptoms of teeth grinding include:
Facial pain
Headaches
Ear-ache
Pain and stiffness in the jaw joint (Temporomandibular joint) and surrounding muscles, which can lead to Temporomandibular disorder (TMD)
Disrupted sleep (for you or your partner)
Worn-down teeth, which can lead to increased sensitivity and even tooth loss
Broken teeth or fillings
Facial pain and headaches often disappear when you stop grinding your teeth. Tooth damage usually only occurs in severe cases and may need treatment.

TREATMENTS

BOTOX

The solution of BTX will enable the muscle to decrease in strength and size. Your skin will be numbed with cream and you will literally, feel nothing but a relief in 2 weeks. 16 to 36 Units may be distributed to each side. Beyond immediate relief, Botox injections in the area can also lead to aesthetic improvements, meaning a slimmer facial appearance and potentially dramatic shape-shifting results. The the procedure can even help define the cheekbones, like the jaw muscles soften, and make way for the bones of the face to look more pronounced and sculpted.
