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.
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.
