Botox / Bruxism

Modern Dentistry and Personalized Care from Ryoo Dental

Trusted and Quality Care with a Passion

Bruxism is a condition characterized by teeth grinding or clenching. It can occur during the day or at night, and it can cause a variety of symptoms, including headaches, jaw pain, and earache. Bruxism is a relatively common condition, and it's thought to affect up to 10% of the population.
If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), you may be looking for a way to relieve those symptoms. At Ryoo Dental, our dentist and team are offering an option that is becoming increasingly popular, botox.

Botox is a neurotoxin used to relax the muscles in the face. When injected into the muscles that control the jaw, it can help reduce teeth grinding.

Why is Botox used to treat Bruxism?

Botox is most commonly associated with cosmetic procedures, however, it can also be used for therapeutic purposes.
The effects of Botox are not permanent, and treatments will need to be repeated every few months. However, many patients find that botox provides significant relief from their bruxism symptoms.
Botox can help to ease the symptoms of bruxism by reducing the muscle activity that causes teeth grinding. It is important to note that botox is not a cure for bruxism since it only helps with the symptoms. Botox injections are a safe and effective way to reduce them.

Am I a Good Candidate?

If you are considering botox for bruxism, you should speak to your dentist at Ryoo Dental. They will be able to assess whether botox is right for you and explain the potential risks and side effects.
Other treatments for bruxism include mouthguards, which can help to protect your teeth from wear and tear. Mouthguards can also reduce the noise associated with teeth grinding. If bruxism is severe, your dentist may also recommend surgery to correct the problem.
