Botox to Relax Jaw Clenching
Some reports state that as many as 25% of people suffer from persistent jaw clenching, a condition which can be caused by habitual jaw clenching movements, or the natural dental anatomy. Persitent jaw clenching can lead to pain, frustration stress and anger.
Often patients may seek dental advice and sometimescan be successfully treated by your dentist.
If you have this condition you may also notice the following about yourself:
• A square-looking jaw or a recently acquired square-looking jaw.
• An asymmetric look to your jaw.
