Expert Care For Teeth Grinding & Clenching

Bruxism, commonly referred to as teeth grinding and jaw clenching, is a frequently encountered issue, particularly among individuals leading busy lifestyles. This involuntary activity, transpiring during periods of slumber or concentration, can trigger a multitude of unpleasant symptoms, including but not limited to facial and jaw soreness, as well as severe indications such as headaches, neck, and shoulder pain.

Research indicates that stress and anxiety are often underlying factors, necessitating prompt intervention to mitigate exacerbation of the condition. Hence, addressing these underlying issues is imperative.

How does this work?

At Skin NV, we offer a highly effective treatment that utilises a neurotoxic protein to address the common concerns of teeth grinding and jaw clenching, also known as Bruxism. This protein works by preventing the activation of the jaw muscles, leading to the relaxation of the treated muscles when administered in controlled and small doses. This targeted approach reduces the tension within the jaw muscles responsible for clenching or grinding, resulting in relief from pain without any negative impact on jaw function.

Our skilled and experienced Dr Natasha Verma performs this procedure, which is classified as a medical treatment. By choosing Skin NV, you can rest assured that you will receive a safe and effective solution to your Bruxism-related issues. If you are looking for a reliable clinic that offers cutting-edge treatments, then contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Why choose skin NV

Professional skin care solutions from a qualified doctor.

Step-by-step procedure

1.

Prior To The Treatment

During your medical consultation, Dr Verma will conduct a thorough evaluation of your facial muscles to identify the underlying cause of your symptoms. Based on the findings, an individualised treatment plan will be recommended, which may include a combination of in-clinic treatments and homecare guidance. Our aim is to not only provide you with optimal relief from your symptoms but also to prolong the results, ensuring long-term freedom from discomfort and stress.

2.

During The Treatment

Before commencing the procedure, Dr Natasha Verma will cleanse your cheeks thoroughly and then apply a topical anaesthetic to reduce any potential discomfort. The muscle-relaxing agent will then be administered to the appropriate facial muscles with precision and accuracy, utilising the latest techniques to minimise any discomfort. You may feel a slight pressure during the injection, but rest assured that our experienced team will keep you informed and comfortable throughout the process. Following the treatment, you will be encouraged to exercise your cheek muscles gently to allow for optimal recovery and to reduce any post-treatment symptoms.

3.

What To Expect

Following your treatment, it is common to experience mild stiffness and tenderness in the treated area, as well as occasional headaches. These sensations are normal and should subside over the next few days as your body adjusts to the treatment. As time passes, you will start to notice a significant improvement in your comfort level and overall relief from your initial symptoms. Furthermore, you may notice a change in the shape of your face, as it starts to take on a more oval appearance that enhances the prominence of your cheekbones.

4.

Aftercare

At Skin NV, we prioritise your safety and well-being above all else. As such, it is strongly advised that you avoid touching or massaging the treated area for at least 24-48 hours after your neurotoxic treatment. This will allow the product to settle and take effect without any interference, maximizing the effectiveness of your treatment. In addition, we recommend that you avoid applying any heat packs to the treated area, as this can cause the neurotoxic agents to spread to unwanted areas. To ensure optimal results and minimize any potential risks or complications, we encourage you to follow these guidelines carefully.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the treatment hurt?

Although injections can be uncomfortable, Dr. Natasha Verma takes steps to minimize discomfort. She applies a topical anaesthetic to numb the area. This means that you will only feel a momentary, mild pressure during the injection.

Here are some additional tips for minimizing the discomfort of an injection:

  • Relax your muscles as much as possible.
  • Take a deep breath and hold it as the injection is administered.
  • Distract yourself by thinking of something else. 

If you have any concerns about injections, please talk to your doctor. 

How do I know how many injections I need?

The number of injections you need depends on the area being treated, the activity of the muscles in that area, and how frequently you have been receiving treatment.

Dr Natasha Verma will assess your muscle activity at your appointment and administer the appropriate dosage at the sites of muscle activity and line formation.
She will schedule a follow-up appointment approximately 2 weeks later to assess the results.

Dr Verma is conservative with her injections to achieve a natural result while avoiding a "frozen" appearance.

How long does the treatment last?

The effects of the treatment for bruxism typically last for 3-6 months. However, the duration of the treatment can vary depending on the individual and the severity of their bruxism. In some cases, the treatment may need to be repeated more frequently.

Who should not have teeth grinding treatment?

  • People with severe gum disease
  • Those with missing or weak teeth
  • People with severe TMJ disorders
  • Pregnant women
  • Individuals who have previous jaw surgery"

Can I catch a flight after treatment for bruxism?

Yes, you can catch a flight 24 hours after bruxism treatment. There is no evidence that flying has any adverse effect on the effectiveness of the treatment.

However, there are a few things you should keep in mind if you plan to fly after treatment:

  • Avoid rubbing or massaging the areas where you received injections
  • Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated
  • Avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours after treatment

If you have any concerns, be sure to talk to your doctor.
