Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)
What is Bruxism?
Bruxism is the involuntary habitual grinding of the teeth, typically during sleep. This condition can affect both adults and children. Some people don’t display any symptoms, whilst others may experience headaches, jaw pain, tooth pain or migraines.
Because teeth grinding often occurs during sleep, you might be wondering ‘how do I find out if I grind my teeth?’ Many people are told by their loved ones that they grind their teeth, as it can be loud enough to be heard, but a tell-tale sign of bruxism could also be a constant dull headache or sore jaw.
- Teeth grinding or clenching
- Jaw muscle tightness
- Flattened or fractured teeth
- Increased tooth sensitivity
- Chronic facial claim
Botulinum toxin has been shown to be extremely effective in the treatment of Bruxism, as it blocks the nerve impulses in the masseter muscle when injected that stimulate teeth grinding whilst sleeping. Just like regular botulinum toxin, this treatment is not a permanent solution, and a top-up is recommended after 6 months. This may vary for the individual person.

Let’s face it there is a lot of conflicting information on dermal fillers and cosmetic treatments. The emphasis appears on social media that having dermal filler or anti-wrinkle injections gives an over filled or frozen look. Many of these reflections on the media are merely reflections of distorted trends, that end up scaring people away from using the latest technologies to provide a natural refreshed look.
8 Point Liquid Facelift is a non-surgical procedure using dermal fillers at certain points around the face. Using the dermal filler at these points provides subtle enhancements to the face. Every treatment is customised since the eight points may not need to be addressed in every person.
