Teeth Grinding

Introduction To Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding, also known as Bruxism, is an unconscious habit of clenching the teeth, whether awake or asleep, that can lead to physical pain and dental issues. It may cause headaches, earaches, facial pain, as well as chipping of the teeth and increased tooth sensitivity.


At Feonix Aesthetics, we offer a solution to this problem by using Botulinum Toxin Type A. This treatment helps to relax specific muscles to provide relief from chronic clenching or grinding. Additionally, it can also soften the contours of the face when the jaw has become widened. The procedure takes only 20 minutes to complete and is temporary, lasting for approximately 3 to 4 months. Regular top-ups will be required to maintain the results, but you should notice improvements within 2 to 5 days after treatment.

Factors To Consider

There are various reasons why people may experience teeth grinding, including stress, anxiety, and sleep disorders. Certain substances like alcohol, caffeine, and recreational drugs, as well as prescription medication such as SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor), can also exacerbate the condition.


Overexertion of the masseter muscle, which is used in chewing, can lead to a wide or square-looking jaw, which can be a concern for some women. They may feel that their face looks too masculine and desire a more rounded, feminine appearance.


Who Will Perform My Treatment?


Botox injections for a teeth grinding is performed by a Feonix Aesthetics medical professional, such as a doctor or a nurse, who has received specialised training in administering the treatment. These professionals are known as injectors, and have a thorough understanding of facial anatomy and the injection technique to ensure that the treatment is safe and effective.
