Teeth grinding can be caused by stress and some patients may not even realise they grind their teeth. Over time, teeth grinding can cause damage to the teeth and jaw and can result in debilitating headaches.
In the video, Dr Jenny Kimmins explains how Botulinum toxin can be injected into the masseter muscle of the jaw to relax the muscle and therefore prevent teeth grinding.
Dr Kimmins discusses how long the results can last and her technique for performing these treatments in the primary care setting, including dosage, and how the procedure can vary depending on the age of the patient.
The video also looks at the effects patients can expect from the injectables procedure, as well as some possible risks and side effects.
