More About Our Treatment for Bruxism
Do you clench your jaw out of habit, and notice pain or dental issues? Grinding your teeth is a condition known as bruxism. Tooth grinding can wear your teeth down, causing them to break and it can also affect your bite and jaw, causing a lot of pain.
The good news is that Dr. Croland offers a non-invasive bruxism treatment that comes with minimal pain and virtually no downtime. Botox can help alleviate muscle soreness due to bruxism. Continual treatment will reprogram the brain and help you stop the habit of grinding or clenching your mouth, even while you sleep.
Botox is the most popular brand of the injectable solutions Dr. Croland uses to treat bruxism. He will develop a treatment plan to address your problem and stop the habit of tooth grinding. Botox is a muscle relaxer, often used to temporarily treat wrinkles that appear when you make certain facial expressions. It has also been FDA-approved to treat bruxism, headaches, and migraines and is widely used by neurologists and pain specialists. The main muscles that are engaged in bruxism are Masseter, Medial and Lateral Pterygoid, and Temporalis. Dr. Croland has extensive training and experience in injecting these muscles with Botox to treat Bruxism.
