10 May Teeth Grinding
Help Alleviate Teeth Grinding Or Clenching
(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.
This procedure maybe covered by insurance if your policy stipulates that it is a medical necessity.
If 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 in two or even three weeks. Patients generally need to return twice a year to maintain.
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.
Alternatively, we may inject into the temporalis or frontalis muscles, depending on your specific situation.
The effects usually take 3-5 days to work, and results may last 3-6 months. Many patients notice a reduction in headaches and head and jaw tension.
