60 min – Botox is an effective treatment for teeth grinding. Botox for Bruxism Teeth Grinding targets the muscles responsible for causing tension in the jaws, one of which is the masseter muscle. When Botox targets the masseter muscle, it reduces tension in the facial muscles and prevents the pain and discomfort caused by teeth grinding. The effectiveness of Botox for teeth grinding is not only hypothesized by experts but has also been investigated in a number of studies. One such study proved Botox to be a safe and effective treatment for individuals affected with moderate to severe types of bruxism teeth grinding. Botox may be injected into different parts of the body based on the type of effect the doctor is aiming for. For example, if you are getting Botox for the management of teeth grinding, the doctor will mainly target your jaw muscles, also known as your masticatory muscles. These muscles are responsible for causing the clenching movement of the jaw, which also promotes teeth grinding. The most important of these muscles is the masseter muscle, which is the primary target for this procedure. However, you may also get a Botox injection to your frontalis and temporalis muscles found on your forehead and temples, respectively. CUSTOMIZABLE TO YOU - CUSTOMIZABLE TO YOU - The dose and volume of Botox used for teeth clenching may differ from one doctor to another, based on their belief and understanding of the case. However, in the majority of the cases, a concentration of between 2.5 to 5 units per 0.1 ml of Botox is used. The dose often injected into the masseter muscle is between 25 to 50 units, while that to the temporalis muscles is between 10 to 25 units. Moreover, when an injection to the lateral pterygoid muscle is required, the doctor will most likely inject 7.5 to 10 units. Rejuvenus Clinic offers Botox® treatment for Bruxism Teeth Grinding.
