Teeth Grinding

Do you find yourself waking up with a dull, constant headache or a sore jaw?

Don’t worry you are not alone many people suffer with this condition sometimes caused by consistent grinding of your teeth. Maidstone Dental and Implant Centre team are experienced to help you deal with this problem.

Teeth grinding also known as Bruxism can cause headache, earaches, facial pain, and even migraines. Dental problems from bruxism include loss of tooth enamel, increased tooth sensitivity, and flattening and/or chipping of the teeth.

Treatments with Botulinum Toxin Type A., commonly known as Botulinum toxin, can provide tremendous relief from jaw soreness, headaches, and other unpleasant problems associated with Bruxism. Botulinum toxin treatments for Bruxism can also soften the appearance of the jaw line. Although Botox injections are not a cure for teeth grinding, they can successfully control the uncomfortable symptoms better than a mouth guard for some patients. Using Botox for treating bruxism can last for three to four months.
