Teeth Grinding at Melocare

Grinding is the involuntary process of clenching and grinding your teeth, whether you are awake or asleep. If not treated, bruxism could cause teeth attrition which can wear away the enamel and cause headaches, jaw pain and loss of teeth. It is good news that Teeth Grinding Treatment is available in Melocare Wellness to stop bruxism as well as some of its consequences.

What is Teeth Grinding?

If you’re one of the millions of people who grind and clench their teeth during sleep, an injection of Botox might be the answer, a small study suggests..

The condition, called bruxism, can lead to pain, headaches, jaw problems and damaged teeth. However, the researchers reported that shots of Botox into the chewing muscles in the cheek can block the signals that tell these muscles to contract, relieving the grinding and clenching.

Recently, botulinum toxin has proven to be an ideal treatment option for targeting and treating excessive muscle activity and spasticity. Many other treatments, such as anti-inflammatory medications and dental devices, do not address the source of the problem. Although dental devices can successfully protect teeth from damage at night for bruxism sufferers, they are ineffective in stopping the painful side effects of teeth grinding.

Treatment at MELOCARE for teeth grinding?

At MELOCARE by injecting small doses of botulinum toxin directly into the masseter muscle (the large muscle that moves the jaw), the muscle is weakened enough to stop involuntary grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. This significantly relaxes the muscle and reduces the wear and tear on the teeth due to grinding. Damage to the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) and headaches should be reduced or eliminated as well. Voluntary movements, such as chewing and facial expressions, are not effected at all by Botox®.

Change your lifestyle

Bruxism is a possible consequence of certain substances like alcohol, tobacco, caffeine as well as anxiety and depression medication. Limiting or cutting down on the consumption of these substances can aid in stopping the grinding of your teeth

Massage of the jaw and exercises for the jaw

Jaw exercises, such as the stretching exercise, massage jaw muscles and the application of hot packs on the jaw muscles can relax jaw muscles and keep the jaw from clenching during late at night.

Management of anxiety and stress

About 70% of bruxism-related cases are a source of stress and anxiety. Relaxation methods, like meditation, speaking with someone who can help, or exercising routines can alleviate negative feelings which cause grinding of your teeth.

Splints, mouth guards and mouth guards

Splints and mouth guards, recommended by a dentist provide an physical barrier between your lower and upper teeth, which prevents further harm to your teeth. It is important to remember that while this technique can reduce the wear and tear on your teeth it’s not able to treat bruxism.

Relaxing agents for muscles

Relaxants for muscles, if taken prior to sleeping, may help to ease jaw tension and stop grinding your

teeth.Botox(r) Injections

Botox(r) injections into the muscles of the masseter of the jaw can weaken muscles and stop the jaw from grinding involuntarily and clenching. This technique is utilized in the most severe instances of bruxism because it’s far more efficient than techniques such as mouth guards.

Treat the underlying diseases
Certain medical conditions like sleep apnea and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) may be the root factors that cause bruxism. The diagnosis and treatment of related problems can improve the quality of your teeth grinding.

As with all health conditions it is essential to identify the source of the problem to figure out the most appropriate treatment. If you’re suffering from symptoms of bruxism with your dentist about so Melocare wellness celebrity aesthetic clinic is the right clinic options are suitable for you.
