Bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching) is a common condition that affects people from all walks of life. A lot of the time, teeth grinding occurs at night during sleep so you may not know you have bruxism until it leads to noticeable problems such as pain, soreness and dental damage. If you are experiencing the discomforts of bruxism, an effective alternative treatment worth considering is Anti Wrinkle Injection!
What Actually Is Anti Wrinkle Injection Treatment?
It is a treatment made up of a toxin that blocks certain chemical symptoms from nerves that cause muscles to contract. It is typically administered by injection into the affected area.
Anti Wrinkle Injection is used in various cosmetic and medical treatments. These types of injectables are prescription-only medicines and only authorised registered health practitioners can prescribe them. For your health and safety, you should only receive these types of treatments from a professional.
How Does Anti Wrinkle Injection Work For Teeth Grinding?
When used as a treatment for Bruxism, it is injected into a targeted muscle such as the masseter muscle, the muscle that moves the jaw. Anti Wrinkle Injection treatment can relieve the pain and soreness of teeth grinding by relaxing the facial muscles and relieving tension in the affected area around your head.
Does it Hurt?
Anti Wrinkle Injection may cause a bit of pain, but it is generally minimal and fleeting like a small prick or bug bite. To reduce the discomfort, numbing treatments may be applied to the area during treatment. Talk to your health professional if you have any concerns, they may be able to provide you with sedation options.
Are There Any Side Effects?
After receiving Anti Wrinkle Injection Treatment, some patients may experience mild side effects such as mild bruising, numbness, soreness or redness around the injection sites, but it is only temporary.
What To Expect After Anti Wrinkle Injection Treatment For Teeth Grinding
Many patients experience a noticeable improvement quickly, most say it is within one or two days of their first treatment. Total relief may take a little longer, up to a week. The amount of time the treatment lasts can vary from person to person but is typically a few months or as long as four months.
Anti Wrinkle Injection treatment is non-surgical so many patients will be able to return to normal activities after the procedure. To avoid spreading the toxin to other areas of the body, patients are advised not to rub or massage the treated areas and avoid excessive physical activities for 24 hours afterwards.
