Bruxism (Teeth Grinding Treatment)

Toxins are a popular treatment for clenching and grinding.

This may alleviate the inflammation of the temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) and also reshape the face by contouring the jawline.

These injections require precision and extensive experience to avoid issues with chewing or smiling.

It is generally a safe procedure when done appropriately and toxins are not injected too frequently otherwise there may be a risk of muscle atrophy.

Results usually take effect up to two or even three weeks.

Teeth Grinding

How does the procedure work?

Intramuscular injections of toxins are a breakthrough treatment for bruxism and  work by relaxing the masseter muscle - which is the muscle you use to chew.

The effects usually take up to 2 weeks to work, and results may last 9-12 months. Many patients notice a reduction in headaches, shoulder, and jaw tension.


*Disclaimer: All procedures have risks. All results are individual. Speak to your doctor if you are concerned about Bruxism.
