Bruxism is a condition that causes uncontrollable grinding or clenching of your teeth. Many patients are unaware of the action, which means you could be grinding at night while you’re asleep and not even know it.
If left untreated, your bruxism could lead to chronic headaches, eye pain, ear pain, jaw disorders, tooth damage and neck problems. Therefore, it’s important to seek treatment with a trusted provider as soon as possible and see if you are a candidate for Botox injections.
The symptoms of bruxism may be obvious, but if not a good indication you are suffering is waking up in the morning with a headache or sore jaw. If you have a partner, ask them if you are audibly grinding at night. A dentist can also check your teeth for damage.
BOTOX Treatment for Bruxism
BOTOX is not only a treatment for wrinkles, sweating, and migraines, but it’s now being used for bruxism as well. The treatment involves injecting Botox into the masseter muscles. The masseter muscle is what we use to clench our teeth. Injecting Botox helps the muscle to relax, reducing clenching and taking the edge off. Patients can begin to feel better within days of the treatment program, each treatment lasting 4-6 months.
