Botox – bruxism


Details

Treatment of bruxism will save us from many serious consequences, so it is worth visiting a specialist and diagnosing it as soon as possible. Bruxism is manifested by pathological clenching of the teeth and friction of the mandibular teeth against the teeth of the maxilla, most often at night. Often the symptom is persistent headaches or a feeling of constant tinnitus and discomfort in the ears, as well as tooth sensitivity that results from damaged enamel. Bruxism negatively affects the entire body, so it is worth choosing the right method of treatment, because if left untreated, it can lead to serious complications. Botulinum toxin, or botox, is also administered to people who suffer from bruxism. The action of botulinum toxin is to temporarily block the flow of the nerve impulse to the masseter muscle. This leads to a reduction in muscle tension and, as a result, its contraction and relaxation. Thus, muscle tension and pain are reduced. After some time, the teeth grinding symptom also disappears, and the facial features around the jaw are softened. The treatment is completely safe and painless. The treatment should be repeated approximately every 6 months.
