Bruxism and the Benefits of Anti-Wrinkle Injections by Dr Clara

Anti-wrinkle or wrinkle relaxer injections have a range of benefits, from softening the appearance of wrinkles, to helping keep your skin looking fresh and relaxed, and even treating non-cosmetic concerns. One of the most common non-cosmetic concerns that can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections is bruxism.

What is Bruxism?

Bruxism is the condition of teeth grinding and clenching of the jaw. It can happen consciously and subconsciously, while asleep (sleep bruxism) and/or while awake (awake bruxism). Teeth clenching and grinding can have many physical complications including dental issues, headaches, tooth sensitivity, toothaches, a sore neck, aching jaw muscle, sleep loss and square jaw.

What Causes Bruxism?

In most cases, bruxism is often as a result of stress and anxiety. When we are asleep, our brain is still active - excluding the two hours of deep sleep the average human experiences.

Dr Clara says, "when humans are nervous, anxious or deep in thought, our nervous twitches and habits come out because our conscious state of mind is no longer present. Such habits also come out when we are sleeping; the brain can no longer focus on filtering through the information received during the day resulting in a malfunction and physical tension". Some other contributing factors to bruxism include age, medication and disorders.

Benefits of Using Anti-Wrinkle Injections to Treat Bruxism

Anti-wrinkle injections can treat concerns such as bruxism or square jaw by helping to relax any muscles that are injected with the formula. The benefits of anti-wrinkle injections for issues such as bruxism can include the following:

  • Decreases pain from teeth grinding and jaw clenching.
  • Eliminates headaches.
  • Balances the face.

"I recommend injecting Botox into the masseter muscle," says Dr Clara. "A lot of people think mouth guards help, but these only protect against your teeth." Anti-wrinkle injections work to relieve that jaw tension and pain. It can eliminate headaches, teeth grinding and lockjaw by relaxing the muscle that unconsciously creates such stress. This will keep your jaw muscles from looking defined and your jaw from seeming wider.

At Blanc Skin, we can correct the jawline by using anti-wrinkle injections to relax the masseter muscle (jaw muscle) and the temporalis muscle (near the temple) - removing the most physically noticeable side effects of bruxism and square jaw.
