  1. Bruxism is the medical term for prolonged unconscious teeth grinding and teeth clenching whilst asleep or awake which can lead to secondary headaches, earaches, dental problems and facial pain. Dental problems can include increased teeth sensitivity, chipped teeth and loss of tooth enamel. Facial problems can include jaw pain especially in the sensitive temporomandibular (TMJ) joint and a compensatory increase in the masseter muscles which can lead to the appearance of a severely wide set jaw.

    Injecting small doses of botulinum toxin in to the masseters and temporalis muscles, weakens them enough to prevent involuntary teeth clenching and grinding whilst sparing voluntary movements such as chewing and facial expressions.
