Teeth Gridning and Botox

February 21, 2008
I have been clenching my teeth for several years now, and have constant headaches, neckaches and facial pain, and have chewed the inside of my cheeks beyond recognition. Will Botox help with these problems? Will it make me jowl-y? I am only 37, but my family is prone to jowls. What are the possible side affects? Do you know anyone who is doing these types of injections in Nashville, TN? Sorry for the flurry of questions, but I am becoming desperate.


hi,
botox will certainly help.
not sure who does botox for teeth grinding in nashville - i'm afraid you're going to have to call around for that. i'd be happy to talk to whoever you choose and help them with the procedure, however. it will certainly not make you jowly. i would recommend no more than 20 units of botox in each masseter muscle. it should not give you side effects. the worst i have seen is a bit of bruising afterwards. the botox should not weaken your chewing or ge your smile.
cheers
