To treat Teeth Grinding, our expert Cosmetic Injectors inject a precise amount of wrinkle relaxant into the masseter muscle on either side of the face, sometimes with additional injections to the temporalis, lateral pterygoid and medial pterygoid muscles depending on the patient’s needs. Injections are done through the outer skin into the underlying muscle or through the inner surface of the cheek from inside the mouth and are usually painless or cause a slight sting. This temporarily relaxes the masseter muscle, which prevents it from contracting excessively. As a result, jaw soreness, headaches and other unpleasant symptoms associated with teeth grinding are relieved.

Overactive, enlarged masseter muscles can give a square, severe appearance to the lower face. This treatment can also be used to slim the lower face and sculpt the jawline in patients with genetically large masseter muscles, resulting in a more balanced and appealing facial contour.

Avoid vigorous physical activity or any large intakes of alcohol for 24 hours as this increases the risk of bruising. Ibuprofen, Aspirin and Vitamin E should not be taken one week before the treatment. After booking and confirming your treatment, please make sure to complete the requested forms.
