Botox For Teeth Grinding in Toronto

Most health professionals consider Botox an effective treatment for teeth grinding. 

Botox for Bruxism Teeth Grinding targets the muscles responsible for causing tension in the jaws, one of which is the masseter muscle.

When Botox targets the masseter muscle, it reduces tension in the facial muscles and prevents the pain and discomfort caused by teeth grinding.

The effectiveness of Botox for teeth grinding is not only hypothesized by experts but has also been investigated in a number of studies. One such study proved Botox to be a safe and effective treatment for individuals affected with moderate to severe types of bruxism teeth grinding.

How Does Botox Work For Teeth Grinding?

The Botox injections are composed of the neurotoxin known as Botulinum Toxin Type A. Injection of this toxin into the facial muscles does not only lead to the elimination of fine lines and wrinkles, but it also works as an effective treatment for teeth grinding. 

When the doctor injects Botox into the muscles that contract during chewing, it works by relaxing these muscles. Relaxation of these muscles does not only work by releasing tension from the jaws but also prevents teeth grinding and the resulting pain and soreness in the surrounding muscles. 

Other than its role as a muscle relaxant, Botox also works for teeth grinding as it helps balance out the jawline, which may become square in shape due to the enlargement of the masseter muscle.

How Long Does It Take For Botox To Become Effective For Teeth Grinding?

While you may leave the office right after the completion of the procedure, you may have to wait a while before noticing the results of Botox. According to data collected from health clinics, most individuals can see the results of Botox for teeth grinding within 23 hours to 3 days after the procedure. 

However, for some patients, it may also take up to 2 weeks to experience the true effectiveness of the procedure. 

The major changes you may notice when your Botox becomes effective are the reduction in clenching, teeth grinding and tension in the muscles of mastication.

How Long Does Teeth Grinding Botox Last?

The results of Botox may vary from individual to individual based on a number of factors. These may include the age of the patients, the volume of Botox injected, the targeted muscles, and the patient’s metabolism. On average, the results of Botox range between 3 months to 6 months.

How Often Should I Get Botox For Teeth Grinding?

Since the effects of Botox last between 3 months to 6 months in most individuals, it may be repeated every 4 or 6 months. However, over time the facial muscles may get trained to contract less than they did before, causing the effects of Botox to last longer.

Where Is Botox Injected For Teeth Grinding?

Botox may be injected into different parts of the body based on the type of effect the doctor is aiming for. 

For example, if you are getting Botox for the management of teeth grinding, the doctor will mainly target your jaw muscles, also known as your masticatory muscles. 

These muscles are responsible for causing the clenching movement of the jaw, which also promotes teeth grinding. 

The most important of these muscles is the masseter muscle, which is the primary target for this procedure. However, you may also get a Botox injection to your frontalis and temporalis muscles found on your forehead and temples, respectively.

How Much Botox Is Injected For Bruxism?

The dose and volume of Botox used for teeth clenching may differ from one doctor to another, based on their belief and understanding of the case. 

However, in the majority of the cases, a concentration of between 2.5 to 5 units per 0.1 ml of Botox is used. The dose often injected into the masseter muscle is between 25 to 50 units, while that to the temporalis muscles is between 10 to 25 units. 

Moreover, when an injection to the lateral pterygoid muscle is required, the doctor will most likely inject 7.5 to 10 units.

What Can I Expect Before Getting Botox For Teeth Grinding?

Before getting an appointment for Botox for teeth grinding, you may have to undergo an initial consultation with the doctor. Your doctor will take your medical history and physically evaluate the muscles of your face, temporomandibular joint, and the inside of your mouth to assess the severity of your teeth grinding and offer possible treatment options for Botox.

You may be asked to stop using blood thinners before the procedure, as they may interfere with the healing.

What Can I Expect While Receiving Botox For Teeth Grinding?

When you go to the doctor’s office to get Botox for teeth grinding, you will first be seated and guided about the details of the procedure. The doctor and our helping staff will then apply a numbing cream to the specific sites of Botox injection to ensure a comfortable experience for you. 

Once the injection sites are prepared, a fine needle is used to inject the Botox into the muscles on both sides of the face. After all the injections are administered, you may go home and return back to your everyday activities.

What Can I Expect After Receiving Botox For Teeth Grinding?

In order to prevent any discomfort at the injection sites at the end of the procedure, the doctor may ask you to place an ice pack on the injection sites for at least 10 to 20 minutes. 

The doctor may also ask you to wait for at least 4 to 5 hours before laying down, while strenuous exercises are to be avoided for at least 24 hours. 

Sun exposure is also prohibited, as it may cause blood vessels to dilate and promote the diffusion of the injected Botox.
