There are many reasons that we clench and grind our teeth, including stress or biological reasons. In order to protect the teeth, joints, and muscles that hold our jaw in place, a nightguard might be recommended.
We offer Therapeutic Botox to help decrease pain in the TMJ area. Clenching and grinding can wear down the teeth and may be the underlying cause of tension headaches that disrupt daily life. While nightguards are our first line of therapy, the implementation of Botox therapy can effectively relieve the symptoms.
