Botox for Teeth grinding (Bruxism)
Botox is well known for wrinkle reduction but is also an excellent treatment for jaw reduction and teeth-grinding (Bruxism).
Botox works subtly by weakening the masseter jaw muscle to give a softer jaw angle. Botox jaw reduction treatment inhibits the action of the masseter jaw muscle which leads to reduction in size of the muscle.
Results are noticeable after two weeks of the treatment with continuing slimming of the jaw for up to 5 months. Although Botox jaw reduction gives good results, it will not bring about any radical changes in your appearance but rather a soft and subtle change in the jaw, giving you a slimmer appearance.
