Bruxism (or teeth grinding) is the medical term for a condition in which you grind, gnash or clench your teeth. If you have teeth grinding or bruxism, you may unconsciously clench your teeth together during the day, or clench or grind them at night (sleep bruxism).
Bruxism can lead to jaw joint disorders, headaches, damaged teeth and other problems.
Most clients come for a treatment because they have seen their dentist because most signs and symptoms are teeth related:
But also other complaints are common:
The most important action is to find the origin of the gnashing. See your family doctor first and discuss the possible causes and the best treatment.
Beside treatments like mouth bits or medication the injection of a botulinum toxin (Botox) is an effective way of reducing the complaints. The results of the treatment will be noticed after a couple of weeks and will last for 6-8 months.
The price is similar to 2 or 3 areas of Botox (see pricing)
