Bruxism is a common disorder in many patients. With the growing demands of our economy and life pressure, many unconsciously resort to grinding their teeth as a way of de-stressing. Sadly enough, this type of grinding, while asleep or awake, often times leads to painful and severe dental and neuromuscular problems. Bruxism can actually be very problematic and can lead to the loss of tooth enamel, increased tooth sensitivity, chipping of teeth, sore jaw, facial pain and headaches. As a Los Angeles premiere TMJ center, we see and treat numerous patients for this condition.
There are several proven methods of treating Bruxism, and one of the is the use of therapeutic Botox®. Botox® has been proven to be a short term treatment option for treating excessive muscle activity, including Bruxism and TMJ. Injecting small doses of Botox® directly into the masseter muscle, which is the main muscle that controls jaw movement, weakens muscle activity which stops the excessive movement and ultimately hinders the unconscious grinding of teeth.
