BOTOX for Bruxism

Did you that BOTOX is a successful way to treat bruxism or teeth grinding? BOTOX has become popular for its anti-wrinkle properties, but is actually also very effective as a therapeutic treatment. Dr. Solomon’s extensive experience with BOTOX allows for quick, painless injections with almost immediate pain relief.

Bruxism is characterized by excessive grinding of the teeth or clenching of the jaw. Common symptoms include a sore neck or jaw, headaches, TMJ (temporomandibular disorder), excessively worn teeth, fractured or decayed teeth, dislocation of the jaw, and ear pain. The cause of bruxism is not clear, but is thought to be caused by a myriad of factors. For example, stress, eating, and sleeping habits can all affect bruxism.

BOTOX relieves bruxism by relaxing the main jaw muscle involved in clenching and grinding. This muscle is called the masseter muscle and is the strongest muscle in your body. Thus, you can easily imagine how grinding or clenching with this muscle can easily damage your teeth and result in painful muscle aches and headaches.

BOTOX effectively stops bruxism and relieves any associated pain within 24 to 48 hours. Rest assured that daily activities such as talking and eating will not be affected. In addition, the procedure is non-surgical and takes only 10 minutes. Dr. Sid Solomon DDS is an expert at administering BOTOX and will make sure the entire process is quick and painless.
