Does Botox help with teeth grinding?

Yes, Botox can be an effective solution for managing teeth grinding, also known as bruxism. Here’s how it helps:

  • Weakening Bite Force: Botox injections into the masseter, a major jaw muscle, temporarily reduce its strength and ability to clench forcefully.
  • Reduces Pain and Damage: By limiting excessive grinding, Botox can alleviate jaw pain, headaches, and protect teeth from wear and tear.
  • Complementary Treatment: Botox is often used alongside other bruxism management techniques, such as custom mouthguards.

Important Considerations:

  • Individualized Treatment: The amount of Botox and injection locations will be customized for your specific needs.
  • Temporary Results: As with other uses of Botox, the effects will wear off after several months, requiring repeat treatments for continued relief.

If you struggle with teeth grinding, schedule a consultation at House of Aesthetics to explore if Botox could help protect your smile.
