Teeth Grinding

Innovative Treatment for Bruxism and Related Conditions

At Nabeta Dentistry, we focus on providing therapeutic Botox treatments for patients suffering from bruxism. Bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding, can lead to a range of dental and muscular issues, including tension-type headaches, migraines, and symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD). Our targeted Botox therapy addresses these issues by focusing on key facial muscles.

Understanding Bruxism and Its Impact

Bruxism often leads to excessive wear and tear on the teeth and can cause pain and discomfort in various facial muscles. This condition is frequently associated with tension-type headaches and migraines due to the constant strain on the muscles involved in mastication and facial expression. Additionally, bruxism can exacerbate symptoms of TMD, leading to jaw pain, difficulty in chewing, and even locking of the jaw joint.

Targeting Key Muscles with Botox

Our treatment focuses on several critical muscles affected by bruxism:

Masseter Muscle: One of the primary muscles involved in chewing, often overactive in bruxism. Botox injections here can reduce muscle tension and alleviate associated pain.

Temporalis Muscle: This fan-shaped muscle on the side of the head can contribute to tension-type headaches when strained. Treating it helps in reducing these headache symptoms.

Platysma Muscle: A muscle extending from the jawline to the collarbone, influencing neck and jaw tension. Botox in this muscle can relieve strain related to bruxism.

Frontalis Muscle: Located on the forehead, this muscle is involved in facial expressions. Treating it can help in reducing the tension that contributes to headache symptoms.

Orbicularis Oculi Muscle: This muscle around the eyes can also be affected by the tension from bruxism. Botox injections can provide relief from the strain.

Glabella (the area between the eyebrows): Treating this region can alleviate the frown lines and forehead tension often associated with bruxism.
