Reduce Pain from Teeth Grinding and Jaw Clenching with Botox
Posted on January 8, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko
Teeth grinding and jaw clenching may lead to numerous health issues including muscle soreness. Traditionally, dentists recommend mouthguards for people struggling with these conditions. Unfortunately, these dental appliances frequently don’t resolve symptoms of teeth grinding completely. Luckily, there are a number of alternative treatments available, Botox injections being one of the most effective ones.
Botox is typically thought of as a way to treat wrinkles, however, it can be used to treat a broad array of muscular disorders. In fact, it’s FDA approved to treat upper limb spasticity.
A trained clinician injects small amounts of Botox into jaw muscles, which reduces muscle activity associated with teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Patients typically experience less pain and soreness after their treatment, and Botox works best if the treatment is repeated every three to four months.
