I keep Grinding my teeth
Frequent tooth-grinding can have negative consequences including the weakening and damage of teeth. We have multiple options for people who grind their teeth a lot:
Splint: For patients who mainly grind at night, we are able to fit and make a special mouth guard-like splint called an occlusal splint. You wear this at night like a mouth guard to prevent your teeth from grinding together.
Facial injectables: For patients who also grind throughout the day or dislike the feel of wearing a mouth guard at night, we can use facial injectables to relax the muscles in your cheeks. This will normally start with two appointments; the first appointment to do the injectable treatment, and the second appointment to review the progress of the treatment. Depending on the person, future treatments may be required to progressively relax your jaw muscles.
