How to Stop Teeth Grinding

Bruxism, or jaw clenching, is a common behavioural pattern, seen in up to 30% of the general population. Symptoms might be minimal at first, but it’s better to address your bruxism concern earlier rather than later.

What Is Bruxism?

Bruxism is the medical term for excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching, which can happen while sleeping (nocturnal bruxism) or even when fully awake. 

Bruxism can eventually result in sensitive teeth, jaw pain, headaches, tooth damage and other disorders, up to wearing down teeth completely if nothing is done. The condition is also often associated with TMJ, or improper functioning of the muscles and joints of the lower jaw. 

Bruxism Treatments

One of the top bruxism treatments today is Botox®, which has been shown to significantly relieve associated symptoms for both bruxism and TMJ. 

Dentists often recommend Botox® as a preventative treatment option. It’s important, however, that your Botox® treatment is performed by a highly qualified professional. Both Dr. Muhn and Dr. Rosen are experts in administering specialized Botox® treatments.  Both physicians also oversee the administration of specialized treatments, such as Botox® for Bruxism, by our expertly trained injectors.
