How do you treat teeth grinding?
The causes of teeth grinding (bruxism) aren’t always known, but it’s usually linked to other factors, such as stress and anxiety or sleep problems. Often your muscle becomes so strong you can even break your teeth.
We can help with teeth grinding by placing a series of small injections into your jaw muscle (called the masseter), which causes it to become less powerful and reduce pressure being put on your teeth.
This can also improve the shape of your face, because a pronounced jaw muscle can make your face look masculine. Treating the jaw muscle can reduce its size and give a sleeker, more attractive shape to your face.
How long does the procedure take?
The treatment usually takes only about 15 minutes.
How is it done?
Firstly, After you have an extensive consultation with one of our nurses, you will be consulted by one of our doctors who will assess your needs and decide on which product and the best method for the use of the product to meet your needs. Our registered nurses explain the entire procedure to you. They will then inject small amounts of the muscle relaxant into your jaw muscle, in several spots.
You will be comfortable for the whole procedure as you will be relaxed in our ultra modern treatment chair in our serene environment.
Does it hurt?
The injections are delivered using a very fine needle, but you will probably feel a small sting.
How long does it last?
It depends on the person. It usually lasts about 3 months but it entirely depends on how bulky your jaw muscle was before the treatment.
How much does it cost?
Since most people require the same amount of muscle relaxer in each area.
Prices start from $600 for this treatment.
What does the cost include?
All appointments include a full assessment (with treatment recommendations).
After your treatment we will book you in for a complimentary 2 week follow up appointment. This appointment is to assess your progress.
Also, Our registered nurses are available 24/7 for their clients and are more than happy to receive a call or text any time of the day (or night!). This way you can be satisfied that you have a health care professional to answer your questions at any time.
