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 from Surrey and Hampshire.

What are the symptoms of teeth grinding?

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.

How can we treat bruxism?

Muscle Relaxing Injections (Botox) can be used to treat chronic teeth grinding. This can provide instant relief from jaw pain, tension and headaches. It can also have 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. The square, severe appearance of the lower face softens into a more normal, natural jawline.

What is the usual treatment for teeth grinding?

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.
