Teeth Grinding or Bruxism

Teeth grinding is a problem that affects significant number of people in general, often causing headaches, jaw problems, and tooth damage. Patients suffering from bruxism have overactive jaw muscles that clench forcefully during the night, causing the teeth to grind together.

Neuromodulator injections are a fairly new treatment for patients suffering from bruxism. When an expert injects Botox into the masseter and temporalis muscles, it relaxes the muscles and stops them from contracting while the patient is sleeping. This treatment does not affect the patient’s ability to eat or chew, but does relieve the painful, damaging symptoms of teeth grinding. Most patients experience an improvement within one to two weeks after injection, and the results last for up to 6 months. Neuromodulator injections for teeth grinding are a simple, quick way to treat bruxism, thus improving a patient’s sleep quality and overall quality of life.

 

Botox for Bruxism FAQs

 

 

Q: Who should perform neuromodulator injections in the masseter muscle?

A: Injections should always be performed by an experienced, qualified injector with specialized training. Book your consultation today.

 

Q: Will Botox masseter injections affect chewing?

A: When patients have this procedure done, they may experience an initial weakening of the muscle, causing the muscle to feel tired fairly quickly when chewing. This side effect, however, does not usually last long and normal chewing function will return.

 

Q: How much does Botox for the masseter cost?

A: The cost depends on the number of units required for the treatment. This will depend on the area being treated and the severity of the issue. For instance, Botox for teeth grinding may require more units than it would for jaw reduction. Schedule a consultation today to discuss your treatment plan and the cost.

 

Q: Can I get masseter Botox at the same time as other cosmetic treatments?

A: Many patients do choose to get neuromodulator injections and facial fillers at the same time. For instance, if you seek Botox in the masseter to slim the jawline, you can also get facial filler injections to plump the lips or fill in under eye hollows. Schedule a consultation with one of our experts today to discuss your individualized treatment plan.

 

Q: Are the injections painful?

A: Most patients do not experience much pain during the injectable procedure. There may be some slight swelling and/or redness after the injection, but patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately following treatment.
