Stop suffering from the aches and pains of teeth grinding and clenching. Sisu Clinic’s botox treatment for teeth grinding can dramatically reduce bruxism and its symptoms, including joint pain, tooth damage, neck and shoulder tension, and headaches, and address structural changes that can misshape your facial contour over time.
Our Botox for Teeth Grinding treatment administers Botox into the masseter muscle to relax the jaw, decreasing and even stopping it from clenching or grinding at night. This can result in less pain and a slimmer jawline.
Common questions and the honest answers from Sisu’s very own doctors.
A: The procedure of injecting botox into the masseter muscle can substantially relax your jaw, decreasing and even halting habitual clenching and grinding while you sleep. This treatment helps patients live their lives more comfortably and pain-free, while reducing inflammation and hypertrophy in the jaw muscles. It also results in refining the jawline.
A: The amount of medicine needed, as well as the areas treated, largely depend on a patient's medical situation. A typical treatment plan for teeth grinding ranges from 20 to 30 units injected on each side of the face, for a total of 40-60 units.
A: Many patients who suffer from bruxism and night grinding see a dental professional to have a mouth guard or splint made to reduce the wear and tear caused by habitual grinding and clenching. Practicing better sleep hygiene, including sleeping in a dark room without distractions and waking up at the same time each day, can help. Research has also shown various facial and neck exercises, including yoga, can help with pain management.
A: Most patients will see almost all of their symptoms subside within 14 days after receiving treatment. The therapeutic results for botox for teeth grinding can last up to 6 months. Some patients report the treatment is life-changing.
