Botulinum Toxin Treatments For Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)
As well as making you look better and helping to turn back the clock, Botulinum Toxin (e.g. BOTOX®, Azzalure) can also help combat migraines, jaw clenching or teeth grinding (Bruxism).
Bruxism is a medical condition where a person grinds their teeth or clenches their jaw. This type of action often occurs out of our control such as when we are asleep. There are consequences to this whereby people experience headaches or even broken teeth as a result.
One solution to this is Botulinum Toxin which has proven to be a successful treatment against Bruxism. It works by relaxing the jaw muscles and can be administered in one session at Inspire clinic.
It usually takes around 7 days for patients to see results. However in some cases it does take longer.
The treatment will last between 6 – 8 months meaning that you may need to top this treatment up 2 times a year depending on your condition.
