Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can cause significant wear and tear on your teeth., leading to discomfort and dental issues. Our treatment helps alleviate the symptoms by relaxing the jaw muscle, providing relief from grinding, clenching.migrains and headaches.

The Masseter is one of the muscles located at the side of the face and connect the jawbone to the cheekbone. This helps you to chew. When toxin is injected into the masseter muscle it is known as masseter or jaw toxin. The botulinum toxin will temporarily block the nerve signals in the muscle which prevents it from moving.
