Bruxism appliances such as custom night guards and NTI devices are one of the first lines of defense in treating patients who clench and\or grind their teeth. They not only protect the teeth but help to reduce or eliminate damage to the jaw joints. This, in turn, alleviates symptoms such as headaches, stiffness\soreness in the head and neck and enlarged musculature.
Another increasingly accepted bruxism treatment is the use of Botox. Botox injected into the muscles responsible for clenching, inactivating them to alleviate the symptoms and preventing damage to the teeth and joints. It can also result in a thinning appearance to the face as the muscles become less prominent.
