Many people unconsciously grind their teeth in their sleep, which can cause tooth and jaw pain and wear down teeth.
To reduce teeth grinding, botulinum toxin is used. At Ageworth, we can temporarily block the muscle activity that causes teeth grinding so that it is reduced or no longer occurs. To treat teeth grinding with botulinum toxin, we will discuss your symptoms with you in detail to provide optimal advice.
At Ageworth, a teeth grinding treatment involves a personal consultation. We would like to discuss your symptoms with you, including when teeth grinding occurs, how long you have been experiencing it, and what symptoms you are experiencing as a result of it. Our doctors are here to advise you and will create a treatment plan tailored to your needs. The amount of botulinum toxin and injection sites will be determined based on your symptoms. If you agree with the treatment plan, the treatment can be scheduled immediately after the consultation.
Every injectable treatment starts with thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the skin. Then, the cosmetic doctor marks the injection points based on the treatment plan. We use a very fine needle so that the treatment is virtually painless. After the treatment, you will receive extensive aftercare instructions so that you can benefit from the teeth grinding treatment as long as possible. A teeth grinding treatment typically takes 30 minutes (including the consultation).
After a teeth grinding treatment, you do not need to recover and can resume your usual activities on the same day. However, your skin may be slightly red and sensitive due to the injections. To ensure that the botulinum toxin is effective in the desired location, we recommend that you avoid lying down, bending over, and exercising for the first four hours after the treatment. Wait at least two weeks before visiting a beautician. UV radiation can cause the treated skin to become damaged more quickly. Therefore, try to avoid the sun as much as possible and always apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 30. A healing, nourishing (scar) cream can help your skin recover more quickly after an injectable treatment.
Duration of Results
The results of a botulinum toxin treatment are visible for an average of three to six months. The body naturally breaks down the botulinum toxin. How long the effect lasts varies from person to person and depends on factors such as your skin type and lifestyle. If desired, a follow-up treatment can be scheduled.
