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.

Anti-wrinkle injectables such as Botox 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 our patients.


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.

For more information on bruxism or teeth grinding treatments or to book your appointment at our award-winning clinic, please contact us, we look forward to welcoming you at our clinic.

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. 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.

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 (teeth grinding) can be be very easily treated. Dr Tailor and her team will be able to advise you of the best treatment option for you. These include:

Patient Reviews


ALWAYS GOOD EXPERIENCEI always have a good experience whenever dealing with health and aesthetics whether it's for a treatment or just coming into purchase products. I can't speak highly enough of the practice.Female patient (54) GENERAL - GOOD EXPERIENCE - (54)
GOING THE EXTRA MILEDr Tailors working ethic is spot on. Offering good helpful knowledge and advice that is 'Tailor made' (scuse the pun) for you. Showing a picture of how your skin could look after a treatment manages your expectations and helps you understand better, plus offering heat treatment upfront to aid faster healing of bruising if necessary, is going the extra mile. I also thought a handout sheet detailing after care was so valuable which is an important part of getting the best out of your treatment and the first time I have been offered this.Female patient (61) GENERAL - GOING THE EXTRA MILE (61)
