Muscular pain in the jaw can be very disabling. Fortunately it can be treated with Botox as part of the cure. When injected correctly it relieves the pain and works with other properly properly directed dental treatment to break the loop of muscular spasm that causes the pain that causes the muscular spasm.
Bruxism is often poorly understood by dentists who can sometimes fit inappropriate jaw splints that can make matters worse. I am working with Mr Tim Sunnucks, a well respected dentist who has been working with bruxism patients for many years
The first step is to take a detailed medical history and establish what caused the bruxism to develop in the first place. Botox can then be administered to reduce the muscular spasm causing the pain. This will also reduce the tooth grinding that can damage the teeth while other specialist dental intervention deals with the root cause
Botox is also used in medical jawline reduction as a method of reducing the prominence of the masseter muscle, the big jaw muscle that allows you to chew food. This slims the angle of the jaw to make the face more oval and reduce the sense of squareness of the face
