Something to Smile About
Grinding or clenching your teeth? Teeth grinding refers to the shifting, gnashing, and clenching of the teeth that occurs when you are asleep. This is often due to an inability of the upper and lower teeth to find a comfortable resting position. It can result in a number of serious dental health problems, including chipped teeth, cracked teeth, gum recession, jaw pain, headaches, and even daytime fatigue due to poor sleep.
Dr. Linda Kay Nichols offers Botox treatments not just for cosmetic purposes but to help alleviate and even correct various dental issues. Botox is a simple treatment to help people with severe bruxism or teeth grinding. It can not only stop the grinding but can reduce the jaw muscle size and return your face to its original appearance without affecting your ability to smile, talk and chew your food.
Botox can successfully control the teeth grinding problem and its symptoms while also improving facial aesthetics.
