Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)

Bruxism (teeth grinding) is a common disorder that is manifested by involuntary and excessive clenching during sleep. When it occurs randomly or occasionally , it does not affect the health and causes very little discomfort . But when teeth grinding happens more frequently , it may arouse serious complications , leading to damage to the jaws and teeth. The most common symptoms are:

  • Crunching jaws;
  • Tooth sensitivity (especially in the morning);
  • Stiffness of the jaw;
  • Limitation of mouth opening;
  • Earache;
  • Headaches;
  • Tiredness upon waking.

Did you know that you can reduce bruxism efficiently by injecting Botox® (botulinum toxin) in the masseter muscles of the jaw ? Did you know that some private insurers cover treatment of bruxism with botulinum toxin injection (Botox®) ?
