BOTOX® treatment for teeth grinding
Grinding or clenching your teeth? Teeth grinding refers to the shifting, gnashing, and clenching of the teeth that occurs when you are asleep. This is often due to an inability of the upper and lower teeth to find a comfortable resting position. It can result in a number of serious dental health problems, including chipped teeth, cracked teeth, gum recession, jaw pain, headaches, and even daytime fatigue due to poor sleep.
Common causes of bruxism:
- Poor dental alignment
- Excessive stress
- Missing teeth
- Sleep disorders
- Side effects of medications
- Symptom of a disease/systemic condition
