Many patients complain and struggle with teeth grinding, which in effect may damage the teeth and it often causes pain. In some cases, nights guards are not enough to prevent grinding. That is why The Kensington Clinic offers patients Teeth Grinding treatment, administered by our Specialist Periodontist Dr Sulaman Anwar.
Complimentary consultation with Dr Anwar, which is compulsory before a treatment is proposed.
The Teeth grinding treatment involves the use of Botox(Botolinum Toxin). Botox correctly administered can be a great tool to help alleviate pain from grinding as it will help relax the muscles that are in pain. Botox can relax the masseter muscle and prevent it from overworking. If your face is starting to look wider, this is because you are building up those masseter muscles. Botox might help to lessen the appearance of this muscle—almost deflating it—so in addition to alleviating the clenching, it might also slim your jawline.
Treatment Duration: Depends on individual’s case. It normally takes 10-20 minutes.
