Teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) is a annoying condition that occurs frequently. Often, teeth grinding happens unconsciously during sleep and you do not notice it yourself. With prolonged teeth grinding, wear and tear can occur. This has both painful and cosmetic effects.
Botox is injected into the jaw muscles during treatment. Use is made of small injection needles. A botox treatment for teeth grinding can help enormously, because botox reduces the muscle tension in the chewing muscles. The teeth grinding will thus reduce or even stop altogether. In principle, only the large masticatory muscle is treated during treatment. Should the other masticate muscle also be a cause, it will also be treated.
At KNAP Institute, only specialized doctors work with amply demonstrable experience in the field of botox treatments. By using botox dosed during a treatment, the muscle is not completely ‘flat’ laid. This makes the result much more natural and your skin looks young and radiant. Botox is used for dynamic wrinkles caused by contraction of muscles. They are also called expression lines. With static wrinkles (which are always visible) fillers are often used. This filler fills the wrinkle from inside as it were.
Note: before the treatment is started your dentist must have established that the jaw position is not the cause of the grinding.
