Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding, also known as ‘bruxism’, occurs when a person grinds or clenches their teeth. The exact cause of teeth grinding is not completely understood and there are numerous different theories.

However, there is a link to sleep apnoea, jaw posture positions, tooth position, dental work, abnormal bite, trauma, repetitive strain, lifestyle activities, as well as emotional & developmental issues.

By treating the muscle with anti-wrinkle injections, we can block nerve signals resulting in the muscle no longer able to contract as tightly. Therefore, stopping the involuntary grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. As a consequence, the treatment causes the size of the muscle to reduce and creates softer angle of the jaw and a more youthful oval face.

An effective treatment for reducing a prominent or asymmetric jaw line, the procedure has no downtime and patients generally notice softening of the masseter muscle after 1 week and softening of the jaw line at around 6-8 weeks.

At Facial Rejuve we always aim for a soft, natural look which allows us to achieve a significant line improvement whilst still maintaining normal facial expression and helping restore a youthful appearance. As well as contouring the jawline, anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to reduce a gummy smile, treat excessive sweating, and eradicate fine lines & wrinkles.
