Anti Wrinkle Injections help Bruxism, reducing teeth grinding and relieve jaw clenching. Bruxism is a common and debilitating problem. Not only does it wear down, break and damage the teeth and fillings but regular and persistent grinding of the teeth can also result in jaw ache, headache, neck ache and earache.

Bruxism is usually a subconscious behaviour performed whilst one is asleep and can cause facial pain and headaches. It is commonly caused by anxiety. Left untreated, it often gives rise to poor quality sleep and damaged teeth. Bruxism may lead to a variety of problems. Excessive grinding can damage teeth and dental fillings, often resulting in loose or broken teeth and crack-lines in teeth which results in further complications and possible tooth extraction. It can cause the outer enamel of the teeth to slowly wear away, leading to tooth sensitivity. It can cause jaw dysfunction, headaches (particularly morning headaches), and pain in the muscles of the face: bruxing causes the muscles to be overactive, giving rise to these symptoms. It can cause inflammation of the temporo-mandibular joint. Noisy tooth grinding may disturb your sleep - or your partner's!.

Do not hesitate to contact BrightSmile Clinic if you experience any of the signs of bruxism, Dr Massoudi will carry out an examination of your mouth with special attention to your jaw and your bite.
