Botox Treatment for Teeth Grinding Problem

This disease, medically called bruxism, is popularly known as teeth clenching or teeth grinding. This discomfort, which is generally seen while sleeping, may also occur during the day in people under intense stress.

This condition causes serious damage to the oral structure. Symptoms such as sensitivity in teeth, loosening, fractures, aching gums, pain in the jaw joint, and headache may be observed.

Botox, which is used in many areas, has also been used in the treatment of teeth grinding for several years. The problem can be completely eliminated by applying Botox to the chewing muscle. The application takes 5 minutes. The effect starts from the first day and can be repeated after 6 – 9 months depending on the patient's condition.
