ANTI SWEATING, TEETH GRINDING
Bruxism, which includes clenching or grinding of the teeth, or both, affects between 50% to 95% of the adult population
It is an activation of reflex chewing activity due to an unknown cause.
It is thought to be related to anxiety and stress, asymmetry of teeth, and digestive and sleep disturbances.
Bruxism can cause dental damage and temporomandibular dysfunction, luxation and degenerative arthritis of the temporomandibular joint (14).
The treatment of bruxism includes behavioural therapy, dental appliances, and medications.
Toxins such as Bocouture are a highly efficacious and cost‑effective, nonsurgical option for Bruxism.
This procedure involves 4-5 very specific injections on each side of the jaw to stop the tightening of the masseter muscle.
This prevents the night time chewing action by stopping these muscles from contracting.
How long does this process take?
It takes under 30 minutes to perform.
How much does it cost?
It would depend on the bulk of the muscle and amount of drug required. Starting prices are £300.
When can the results be seen?
The muscle begins to weaken two weeks after injection and maximum effect is seen at 6-8 weeks. The results last upto 6-8 months.
What are possible complications?
You should not suffer serious complications in the hands of a trained practitioner.
However, complications such as inadequate effect, asymmetry of smile and difficulty in chewing have been reported.
