Teeth Grinding/Bruxism

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.

Teeth Grinding/Bruxism 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.

I really like this clinic and have recommended it to friends, three of whom are now also clients at the clinic. The staff is friendly, professional and thorough with their explanations of treatments and in their client care. I will continue to use and recommend the clinic."
Ever since I can remember I have been overweight and unhappy with the way that I look. I have tried all types of diets over the years and nothing has ever worked for me. When I found out about Alevere and how it was monitored by a doctor I knew this would be different and was excited to find out more.My consultation was very informative and gave me lots of reassurance and confidence in myself to get down to a healthy weight. I lost 3 stone in 5 months and feel like a completely different person, I never thought I would ever lose weight or feel better about myself but this diet has changed my life and I am so grateful. The staff made me feel so comfortable and I knew that they were always around if I needed support which was a big motivation during my journey! Best decision I have ever made!Charlotte (28)Specialist skin, laser and body clinic, health + aesthetics, Farnham, Surrey Alevere therapy, weight loss, body contouringSpecialist skin, laser and body clinic, health + aesthetics, Farnham, Surrey Alevere therapy, weight loss, body contouring"
Wouldn’t go anywhere else! Excellent treatments… every time I visit health and aesthetics, for whatever the treatment, from small to large procedures, I leave feeling like it’s money well spent! Excellent products… I have been using the ZO Medical range for 2 months now, recommended by Dr Tailor, and I can honestly say that my skin has never looked better. My friends have all asked me if I have been having Botox, which is the effect these products have had on my face. Excellent staff… everyone is so friendly and caring!!!Lauren (39)"
