Botulinum toxin to control bruxism (teeth grinding)
Botulinum toxin (trade names Botox, Dysport and Xeomin) can be an excellent treatment option for bruxism also known as teeth grinding. Botox reduces the intensity of contraction of the muscle through its mechanism of action. A simple injection in each masseter can eliminate a patient’s bruxism and give your face a more aesthetic appearance. The treatment needs to be administered by health professionals with proper training in anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and botulinum toxin delivery.
