If you are keeping your loved one up at night through clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth, the Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Clinic may be able to assist you.
The medical terminology is bruxism and through the action of teeth grinding you may be placing up to 20 times the pressure on your teeth than the force of everyday chewing food.
Symptoms of bruxism may include:
- Headaches / migraines
- Jaw pain
- Worn tooth enamel
- Tooth sensitivity
- Clicking jaw
How Can It Be Treated?
There are many uses for injectables and one of the most exciting uses for those who grind their teeth is the use of injectables to relax your jaw muscle and help alleviate any tightness or pain you may be experiencing. This procedure can take as little as 15 minutes and may last up to 4 months.
Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Clinic will review the impact of bruxism on your jaw and teeth before advising if this treatment is suitable for you, to book an appointment today click here.
