Bruxism (Teeth clenching)

 Bruxism (Teeth Clenching) Treatment Adelaide

Stress, fatigue and even depression have been linked to jaw muscle tension. This, in turn, can lead to a number of painful and debilitating conditions, such as bruxism (grinding of the teeth), clenching of the jaw, and pain in the neck, ears and shoulders. Not only can grinding and clenching cause severe physical discomfort, but these habits can also cause extreme damage to the teeth. In the past, doctors have used mouthquards, anti-anxiety medications and physical therapy to provide patients with relief.

It has been found however that treating the masseter muscle with cosmetic injections can often help with bruxism (teeth grinding) and headaches that are caused by this muscle. A single treatment can bring relief for up to four months. Some patients even find that the troublesome muscles begin to atrophy after a few sessions, so injections can be performed increasingly less often and may eventually become unnecessary.

These injections target only the problematic jaw muscles, so surrounding muscles are left intact and jaw function is uncompromised. In fact, most patients who undergo this therapy as a treatment TMJ disorder find that functionality increases when the pain of opening and closing goes away.
