Many teeth grinding treatments are designed to protect the teeth but do little to combat the muscle tension and the pains that it causes. However, this is where muscle relaxing injections can be useful. Such a treatment blocks the signals from nerve endings to the muscles, and, when injected into the jaw muscles by a skilled practitioner, can help reduce persistent teeth grinding. Reducing teeth grinding can help patients preserve oral help, relieve pain in the head, ear, and jaw, and dramatically improve the quality of sleep.
In order to ensure accurate, precise treatment for you, a thorough consultation with Dermasurge’s consultant dermatologist, Dr Hiba Injibar, will be carried out prior to undergoing any procedures. During the consultation, Dr Injibar will perform a thorough assessment of the jaw muscles to identify where the injection will be best administered for the most effective relief from tooth grinding.
