Teeth Grinding

Tooth Grinding, also known as Bruxism, can be very distressing for patients and not only wears the teeth down but can cause headaches.  Patients often complain of a morning headache because they have been tensing and grinding the teeth at night.

 

We can treat tooth grinding with anti wrinkle injections by using between 3 and 5 small injections into the masseter muscle it can relax the muscle and reduce biting at night.  The masseter muscle is responsible for biting and can be felt contracting at the back of the jaw when you bite.
