WHat is Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)?

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.

How can Botox help Teeth Grinding?

It works by blocking the nerve supply to muscle thereby restricting their movement. Clinical grade Botox is a prescription only medication extracted, purified and diluted from the original nerve agent. Once injected, it temporarily weakens the contraction of the targeted muscle. The masseter is a large quadrilateral muscle with a superficial and deep head found on bilaterally in the lower face. The temporalis muscle is a broad fan shaped muscle located bilaterally on each side of the head filling the temporal fossa. The two work together to control jaw movement physiologically in chewing and pathologically in teeth grinding and chronic teeth clenching. Targeted small doses of Botox can weaken the muscles enough to strike a balance so that facial movements such as chewing are not affected but unconscious teeth clenching and grinding are not possible allowing for symptomatic relief.

Teeth grinding treatment procedure

The treatment will include multiple injection sites of small dose Botox across bilateral masseter and temporalis landmarks to weaken the muscles enough to prevent involuntary teeth clenching and grinding whilst sparing voluntary movements such as chewing and facial expressions.

Results and Side effects

Immediately after you may commonly experience: tenderness and redness in the area treated. If present this can last 72 hours. A few individuals notice a headache which usually resolves within 48 hours.

Bruising can develop at injection points. Usually minimal but variable, some individuals are more prone to bruising naturally and take longer for the bruise to heal. We do a thorough medical evaluation before hand to reduce the risk of this but also advise limiting alcohol intake for 48 hours pre and post procedure to aid recovery.

Aftercare for Teeth Grinding Treatment

Avoid touching, applying makeup, massaging or rubbing the treated areas for 12 hours, including any facials. This will reduce the risk of the Botox spreading from its targeted area. Avoid exercise for 24 hours. Avoid extensive sun exposure and heat ie) hot showers/sauna/steam rooms for 48 hours. Avoid alcohol for 24 hours.

Wait at least 7 days before any chemical peels, laser or microdermabrasion treatments.

I’ve been using Secret Aesthetics for about 3 years now and in the last couple of months alone i’ve seen Dr’s Zoya, Haroon and Taran for various treatments. All are incredibly professional, as well as kind and welcoming and always explain procedures fully. It’s important to me to see practitioners that want to do the right thing for me, rather than just take my money, and that’s what you get here. It’s also a lovely experience going to such a beautiful clinic. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you Secret Aesthetics.

I have been seeing Dr Haroon for a few years now for my usual botox treatments, however today I decided to take the plunge and have my nose straightened with filler. My nose is something I have been self conscious about for a number of years and I was very anxious to have this done. The results have blown me away & I wish id of had this done many years ago! Dr Haroon is an amazing, highly skilled person who has an extremely calming aura about him that instantly makes you feel at ease! I would highly recommend him! I will continue to see him for many years to come. Dr Haroon thank you so much for giving me a fresh boost of confidence X

I am never disappointed with my visits to the clinic. I was unable to attend my original appointment due to childcare and Dr Zoya was very accommodating. I managed to get another appointment in the same week. This time I met Dr Haroon. He was a pleasure to work with & listened to all of my concerns. I left the clinic satisfied. I cant wait for my next appointment.

I am 48 years old and I’ve never had any aesthetic treatments done before. I have been keen to but too anxious to take the plunge mostly because of the fear of looking like someone else in the mirror! There’s a lot of horror stories out there!! However, after 2 years of colour correction under my eyes, buying endless products and nothing working, I felt quite defeated!! I booked myself in at Secret Aesthetics to have tear trough filler and mid face filler done. Dr Naqvi was exceptional and definitely lives up to his name as ‘the’ Industry expert. I was provided with not just all the essential information I needed to make my decision but I was given the respect, understanding and time to decide on what was best suited to me. After deciding on what I wanted, Dr Naqvi did a mid face filler and Botox on my forhead. I am blown away by the results!!! I looked at myself this morning and could not believe how much of an impact such a little tweek has made. I look rested and fresher faced overnight and I am the younger me. Thank you Dr Naqvi and all at Secret Aesthetics

Met with Dr Haroon and he is absolutely fantastic. He takes his time to explain everything first, which I really appreciated. It's clear he loves what he does as it shines through. I will definitely be back and will only ever see Dr Haroon from now on. :)

WOW.. An excellent experience from day one. An excellent experience from day one of visiting Secret Aesthetics. A beautiful relaxing and calming environment with the relaxation room and comfy chairs. Dr Zoya is the best in the Aesthetics business with a wide range of knowledge and expertise. There are a wide range of treatments available all tailored to suit your expectations. A tailor made plan especially for you with a skin care package to suit you. Nothing is too much trouble from the reception staff right through to the Dr's. I cant express just how nervous I was, but the calming environment with a warm welcome from everyone, has made me feel at ease on my visits. I can't thank everyone who as been with me on my journey enough, for all the information, reassurence and questions answered before during and after treatment. Dr Zoya, you and your team are all amazing and I would NEVER put my trust in anyone else. A***
