Botox for Bruxism

September 16, 2016


Teeth grinding, Bruxism, happens involuntarily most often when you are asleep, and is usually due to stress and anxiety. If you have headaches, jaw or ear pain, aching teeth, or cracked tooth surfaces, you’re likely clenching and gnawing your own teeth at night.

There are various ways to temporarily help you prevent teeth grinding at night, such as mouth guards, trying to prevent stress build up, and avoiding certain foods. But it’s easier said than done.

What people have been relying on these days for their Bruxism are Botox injectables. It paralyzes the masseter muscles, the facial muscle that does all your food chewing, which will alleviate tension and prevent further cracking down on your pearly whites! Not only does the Botox Injectable stop the nightly clenching, but because it relaxes your jaw muscles it also slims down your face, evolving your facial frame to a more elegant look.

At SpaMedica, we offer $8.99 per unit for Botox Injectables. And with our new SpaMedica Rewards Program, you can earn points towards your next non-surgical treatment + gain other VIP benefits!
