At the very beginning it should be noted that bruxism treatment is completely safe and painless. It is based on the injection of high class Botox. It’s practically painless, because the procedure uses anesthesia . An experienced specialist at the J’adore Institute injects botox directly into the jaw muscles – on both sides of the face. The effects of the treatment are visible the next day. After the first visit, the patient experiences a marked weakening of masseter muscles. Injection of the appropriate dose of Botox weakens the muscles accordingly, thanks to which their pressure on the jaw decreases. To completely get rid of the problem of bruxism, it is necessary to perform at least two treatments. In addition, it is recommended to repeat the injection every few months to avoid recurrence.
Bruxism treatment is extremely difficult. Since the causes of this disease are not fully known, effective therapy to prevent teeth grinding has not yet been developed.
