Tackle teeth grinding issues with Masseter Botox treatments in London.
Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a common condition that can cause a range of problems, including headaches, jaw pain, and damage to the teeth. If you grind your teeth, you may be considering Masseter Botox as a treatment option.
Masseter Botox is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting small amounts of Botox into the masseter muscles, which are the muscles responsible for clenching and grinding the teeth. Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles, which can help to reduce or eliminate teeth grinding.
Botox is a neurotoxin that works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that signals the muscles to contract.
When Botox is injected into the masseter muscles, it blocks the release of acetylcholine, causing the muscles to relax. This relaxation of the muscles can help to reduce or eliminate teeth grinding. It can also help to relieve pain and tension in the jaw and face.
