Bruxism or teeth grinding can be treated with BOTOX,  this is an effective and popular treatment to reduce pain and decrease muscle mass.

Bruxism causes large muscles to build up in your jaw. it also can lead to headaches,  toothache, facial pain and problems with bite action.

Botox is tremendously effective in stopping unwanted facial expressions, such as frowning, by blocking the nerve input to the injected muscles. But weakening facial muscles is useful for more than just making one look better, Botox injections can also help one feel better as well. Facial pain from grinding one’s teeth, known as bruxism, can be dramatically improved as well. By injecting the large masseter muscles, muscle spasm is stopped and their bite pressures are reduced. This decreases facial pain and decreases excessive wear on the teeth as well.

The effect of the injections can also reduce the bulk of the masseter muscles which make the lower face look heavy and round. This decreases with treatment resulting in a more pleasing face shape which has better proportions.
