Bruxism is apparent when excessive teeth grinding occurs, usually whilst asleep, causing jaw pain, tension headaches and damaged teeth. The causes of bruxism are not always clear; however, the use of Botulinum Toxin (Botox®), has proven incredibly effective in minimising its effects.
Botulinum Toxin Botox® works by reducing extensive muscle activity, which temporarily eliminates the action of teeth grinding. It is safely administered, via an injection, into the masseter muscle (the large jaw muscle), weakening over-activity and effectively reducing bruxism and tension headaches for up to 6 months.
