Teeth clenching and grinding is mainly caused from stress and anxiety and many people do not recognise they are doing it. Clenching and grinding often takes place when you are sleeping or when experiencing a sense of pressure.
Botox ® (Botulinum Toxin Type A)
This treatment works by injecting Botox ® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) into the one of the jaw muscles usually being the massetter muscle. By doing this it relaxed the jaw muscles instead of them being forcefully contracted preventing teeth grinding and clenching.
