Persistent jaw clenching and teeth grinding (Bruxism) can affect 1 in 12 people according to some surveys. It can result in pain and misery as well as the routine wearing of a bite guard in bed at night.
Teeth grinding often occurs during sleep and often people are unaware they may have this condition. A dull, constant headache or sore jaw when you wake up is a telltale symptom of bruxism. You can examine your mouth and jaw for signs of bruxism, such as jaw tenderness and excessive wear on your teeth.
Botox injections can be used after consultation, to treat this condition. Teeth grinding occurs due to clenched jaw muscles. This is what Botox lessens; the ability of your muscles to clench tightly and thus decrease the amount of grinding that can occur.
These are the main benefits of using Botox to treat Persistent Jaw Clenching or Bruxism.
Botox injections can stop the jaw pain and or headache caused by jaw clenching.
Treatment with botox can stop night time teeth grinding. Grinding can eventually lead to tooth damage and cracking.
Botox treatment for Persistent Jaw Clenching normally lasts for 4 to 6 months. During this period you should have full protection. The alternative treatment using mouth guards can be uncomfortable and can affect sleep or may even become dislodged or removed during sleep.

Sufferers of persistent jaw clenching or Bruxism may have developed a more square or masculine looking jaw. Botox treatment may also have the advantage of relaxing or softening this.

The decision is up to you, the Botox treatment is the same. We perform up to 100 botox injections per week and your nurse has a detailed understanding of facial muscle structure. We are also experienced in dealing with the cosmetic affects of treatment if you also decide that this becomes important to you.
At Qutis we only provide Botox for persistent jaw clenching, however there are other treatment options for jaw clenching and teeth grinding. Using a mouth guard or mouth splint is common. This reduces the sensation of clenching or grinding your teeth. It may also help reduce pain and prevent tooth wear, as well as protecting against further damage, but it can become dislodged at night or become uncomfortable. Most customers have tried this before they come to us for a consultation. Other treatments include muscle-relaxation exercises or you have stress or anxiety, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) may be recommended.
As all people vary, it is important to start with your own face to face consultation. This will give plenty of time to discuss your treatment and ask about any other areas that interest you. Your nurse specialist will give you an exact cost of your treatment after consultation. If you would like to contact us for more information on this, please drop us a line.
