Masseter Botox for Bruxism / Teeth Grinding Treatment in Istanbul

What is Bruxism?

Bruxism is a disorder that often occurs as a result of teeth clenching or grinding habits. In patients with this habit, the masseter muscle, which works involuntarily and constantly, develops more than normal. Excessive development of the masseter muscle causes the jaw structure to change and become angular. We call the disorder that occurs as a result of the uncontrolled growth of the masseter muscles in the jaw as bruxism.

So what does bruxism have to do with botox? This is where botox comes into play for treatment purposes in the treatment of teeth clenching and grinding problems and deformities caused by the masseter muscle in the jaw.

What is the Role of Botox in Bruxism Treatment?

Since it is widely believed that botox applications are generally used for aesthetic purposes, the fact that botox is also used for therapeutic purposes can sometimes remain in the background. In fact, masseter botox is an effectively used and preferred method in the treatment of bruxism. In short, botox applications, which function by preventing the functioning of various muscle groups by applying botulinum toxin, are also used in the treatment of bruxism. Thanks to botulinum toxin applied to the jaw muscle, that is, the masseter muscle, this muscle is relaxed and its function is reduced, thus providing treatment for bruxism.
