Bruxism Treatment in Melbourne: How Anti-Wrinkle Injections Can Help
Grinding the teeth involves contracting your muscles repeatedly while you sleep. This gives your jaw and teeth an unwanted workout, leading to jaw pain, headaches, and worn teeth.
At Cosmetic Experience, we can administer anti-wrinkle injections into the muscle responsible for tooth grinding – the masseter muscle. This reduces your ability to grind your teeth and alleviates the symptoms associated with bruxism.
Three to five small injections are usually all that is required for bruxism treatment in Melbourne, although this can differ depending on how much the muscle needs to be relaxed.
If you’re looking for an alternative to dental mouthguards, talk to our team about bruxism treatment in Melbourne with anti-wrinkle injections.
What to Expect During and After Bruxism Treatment in Melbourne
At Cosmetic Experience, our injectors have an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and will precisely select the points where the anti-wrinkle injections need to be administered.
Aside from a small sting at the point of injection, bruxism treatment is not particularly painful.
Following your treatment, you should wait at least 10 days to see the full effect of tooth grinding injections. After 6 weeks, the treatment results should be considerable. For some patients, significant tooth grinding will persist after injections in the masseter muscle. If this is the case for you, further injections in the nearby temporalis muscle may be able to reduce your symptoms.
Bruxism Treatment in Melbourne: Next Steps
Tooth grinding injections tend to last up to four months, although results can vary based on the initial strength of your masseter muscle and the number of units administered.
