How do anti-wrinkle injections using botulinum toxin help relieve the pain caused by Bruxism?
Multiple studies have shown that Botulism toxin injections, or Anti-wrinkle injections, can help decrease grinding and teeth clenching symptoms. It works by a skilled clinician injecting the 3–4 amounts of the botulism toxin into the master and temporalis muscles which lift and close your mouth. The injection of Botulism toxin relaxes these muscle and improves Bruxism and the pain caused by the grinding and clenching of your teeth.
What causes Bruxism?
What causes Bruxism is not always clear. Oral health specialist frequently highlights stress, insomnia, certain personality types, including anxious people suffering from nervous tension, including anger, pain or frustration. Lifestyle factors such as poor diet, smoking, caffeine use, heavy alcohol consumption are associated co-factors of Bruxism.
Facial pain: the grinding and clenching of your jaw associated with Bruxism can eventually blunt and shorten teeth, leading to muscle pain and debilitating headaches in the myofascial region.
