Bruxism (Teeth Grinding) Treatment in Surrey

Bruxism means grinding the teeth and clenching the jaw.
If you grind your teeth a lot you’ll be exercising the masseter muscle, which is situated at the angle of your jaw and controls chewing. This can mean the muscle becomes over developed and results in a broadening of your jaw. Over time this can give you a more square-jawed and masculine appearance, which has nothing to do with ageing.

Botox treatment can be very effective at changing the appearance of your jawline, as it can temporarily immobilize the muscle and help to break the teeth grinding habit.
This is a simple and effective treatment that has had great results for quite a number of patients who have visited the clinic from throughout Surrey and Hampshire.

Bruxism (Teeth Grinding) Treatment in Surrey Treatment Info

Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is a problem that is aggravated by stress. People that clench their teeth during the day or at night mostly do so without knowing they are doing it. Often they only realise when they wake up with jaw soreness or if their dentist notices that they are wearing down their teeth.

Bruxism can result in headaches, earaches, facial pain, chipped teeth, chewed tissue on the inside of the mouth and a square jawline. Many people are not even aware that it is a recognised medical condition.

Muscle Relaxing Injections (Botox) can be used to treat chronic teeth grinding. This can provide instant relief from jaw pain, tension and headaches, as well as a dramatic change in the way the face looks.

After only two or three sessions of muscle relaxing injections, the masseter muscle begins to shrink and the square, severe appearance of the lower face softens into a more normal, natural jawline.

The results of Wrinkle Relaxing Injections (Botox) last for about six months.

Repeat treatments every six months will break the habit and resolve the symptoms in the long term.

Bruxism is usually treated by dentists with mouth guards or splints worn at night. These are expensive and also uncomfortable. Most people are unable to tolerate them.

Muscle Relaxing Injections (Botox) are a simple, alternative treatment which provide long lasting results both in terms of breaking the habit and improving the jawline.

Testimonials

"EXCELLENT SERVICE AND RESULTSCan’t recommend Dr T enough, I walk in asking for help with saggy bits and lost volume and she takes one very experienced look at me, and declares what needs to be done. Which we do and I’m thrilled with the results. She does little and often, and you are completely involved in your consultation, although I completely trust her recommendations. Dr T is honest and forthcoming and she is always striving to update herself on all the latest developments, which we get to hear about.There are never any ‘over the top’ results and the best part is when your friends comment on how good you look and isn’t your skin great, that’s exactly what I want to hear! You’ll put yourself in safe hands with Dr T and her team.Vikki (47)"

ALEVERE WEIGHT LOSS – A TEAM OF DEDICATED PROFESSIONALS

I started the Alevere weight reduction programme being 5 stones (31.75 kg) overweight. The process was supervised by Dr R Tailor starting with a medical examination and assessment of my response to the diet. I was advised that I could achieve my target weight in 18 weeks. This was exactly correct and in addition to regular consultations with Dr Tailor I was supported throughout by a team of dedicated consultants who monitored my progress, gave ongoing dietary advice, and applied the integral ultrasound treatment which enhances fat loss.The results have been literally amazing and I am now at a weight (and shape) I’ve not experienced since my early 20s, (I’m now 62.) The H & A team have been crucial in this process through their support, knowledge and encouragement. I have no hesitation in recommending them and the Alevere programme in particular.Ian (62)"
