How does botox treatment for clenching and grinding work?

Injecting small doses of Botox (botulinum toxin) directly into the masseter muscle  (the jaw), weakens the muscle enough to stop habitual grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. This significantly relaxes the muscle and reduces the wear and tear on the teeth due to bruxism (the action of clenching or grinding).

What is the best treatment for clenching and grinding?

We often get asked what the best treatment from bruxism is. There is no proven treatment for bruxism. We often advise a variety of different combinations of treatments such as Botox in the jaw muscles, appliances to protect the teeth and medication.

Is Botox treatment for clenching and grinding (bruxism) safe?

Botulinum toxin  is a natural toxin, which weakens the muscles when injected in very small amounts. It is safe to use when used by an experienced practitioner.

What are the side effects of Botox for Jaw clenching (bruxism)?

Botox injections for clenching and grinding do not have many side effects and the only immediate side effect reported is “lopsided smile” in around 8% of patients which returned to normal after a few weeks.
