Sydney’s Proven Experts in Bruxism Treatment

Say goodbye to the pain, discomfort and visual impact of teeth grinding and clenching, with advanced bruxism treatment from our qualified medical experts.

The medical term for persistent grinding or clenching of the teeth, bruxism can lead to a wide range of unwanted effects if left untreated. From headaches and jaw pain to loss of teeth and a square jaw, there are many reasons why it’s important to address bruxism early.

If you suffer from bruxism, our qualified medical team is here to help you put an end to your teeth grinding and clenching quickly and easily, using safe anti-wrinkle injections to relax the jaw muscles.

Stop bruxism in its tracks and avoid the significant impact this condition can have on your health and appearance.

Your bruxism treatment at a glance:

  • Overview: A cosmetic injectable procedure that uses anti-wrinkle injections to relax the masseter muscle, reducing teeth grinding and clenching.
  • Treatment time: 20 mins
  • Downtime: None
  • Results: A few days, can last up to 6 months

To treat bruxism effectively, our medical doctors use anti-wrinkle injections to relax the masseter muscle, which is responsible for teeth grinding and jaw clenching. By relaxing activity in this muscle, we can reduce grinding and soften the jaw.

As a result, you’ll notice a reduction in your teeth grinding and clenching habits, with fewer headaches, less jaw pain, and a natural softening of the jaw shape. What’s more, while anti-wrinkle injections are extremely effective at treating bruxism, they won’t affect your facial expressions or ability to chew.

Anti-wrinkle injections for bruxism can last for up to 6 months, but you’ll need to come back to maintain the results and get continued relief from bruxism, as this treatment is not a cure.

Anti-wrinkle injections for bruxism are a quick and simple way to address the unwanted symptoms of bruxism and get relief from pain and discomfort.

Here’s what to expect when you visit one of our modern clinics for your anti-wrinkle injection treatment:

  1. Following an initial assessment, we’ll cleanse your skin and apply a numbing agent to help you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout your session.
  2. One of our doctors will administer the injections into the masseter muscle, in order to relax the muscle and soften the jaw. The whole process will take around 30 minutes.
  3. And that’s it! Once your session is over, you can safely return to work without any disruption.

Bruxism can affect both our health and our physical appearance. While you may associate teeth grinding with painful symptoms such as headaches and jaw pain, this condition can also result in a changed facial appearance, with a squaring of the jaw.

This square jaw appearance can be particularly noticeable in women, who often want to maintain a soft feminine jaw shape.

Anti-wrinkle injections for bruxism can result in:

  • A reduction in teeth grinding and jaw clenching
  • Relief from headaches, particularly upon waking
  • Relief from jaw ache and neck pain
  • Softening of the jawline to reduce a square appearance
  • Prevention of serious side effects associated with bruxism, including tooth loss

Bruxism Treatment: Frequently Asked Questions

Anti-wrinkle injections contain a naturally-occurring protein, which stops the activity of a chemical messenger called acetylcholine.

As acetylcholine is responsible for muscular contractions, the injected muscle is now relaxed. When injected into the masseter muscle, this relaxation greatly reduces the occurrence of teeth grinding and clenching, as well as reducing squaring of the jawline.

After your session, we’ll talk you through anything you need to be aware of in order to avoid issues and maintain optimal results.

There are a few things you should be mindful of after your session, such as:

  • Not exposing your skin to very hot or very cold temperatures
  • Avoiding skincare products that may cause irritation
  • Skipping any strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours
  • Taking care not to rub or massage the treatment area

If you notice any unusual symptoms, be sure to contact us immediately so our medical experts can advise you on what to do.

Anti-wrinkle injections are a safe and proven treatment option for obtaining temporary relief from bruxism. Side effects are rare – and when they do occur, they’re minor and temporary.

In some cases, patients may experience mild side effects such as redness, bruising, heat and swelling at the injection site. It’s important to note that these symptoms are normal, easy to conceal, and will clear up within a few days.

Our highly personalized level of service means that we’ll tailor a treatment plan to suit your specific needs. As a result, treatment pricing will vary from patient to patient.

During your initial consultation, one of our trained doctors will conduct an assessment of your bruxism condition, discuss your situation, and develop a customized plan for your treatment. This will include a detailed breakdown of costs, timeframes and what to expect.

After a few days, you’ll notice a significant reduction in teeth grinding and jaw clenching, as well as a softer jawline.

Results can last for up to six months, but this will vary from person to person. Once you start to notice your bruxism returning, you’ll need to book another treatment to maintain relief from this condition.

While anti-wrinkle injections are a safe and effective treatment option for most people, not everyone is a suitable candidate.

At Medical Aesthetics 360°, we take a personalized approach to every patient. This means you can be sure of a customized treatment plan that’s carefully tailored to your needs – and delivers optimal results.

Anti-wrinkle injections for bruxism may not be the best option for you if:

  • You’re under 18 years of age
  • You have underlying health conditions
  • You’re currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have a history of nerve or bleeding disorders
  • You have a skin disorder

Most people find our anti-wrinkle injections for bruxism to be comfortable and relatively painless.

We’ll apply a numbing cream to minimize sensation in the treated area and use very tiny needles to reduce pain during the session.

While you may feel a small degree of discomfort after your treatment, this can be easily addressed using home remedies such as ice packs and standard pain medication.
