We should really give our jaws more credit. For an actuating joint in our body they are remarkably resilient to the problems typically associated with such areas. For example, you are much less likely to see the wear and tear associated with knees or hips in the jaw, and it is much less prone to arthritis symptoms.

Still, as our downtown dental clinic is well aware, jaws are not perfect. Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) can cause long-standing pain or discomfort during eating. Overbites and underbites may need the assistance of orthodontics to repair, and, of course, the main subject of our article, Bruxism, chiefly affects the jaw.

However, new treatments are emerging for these problems, including Botox. You can learn more about this below.

The Relationship Between Bruxism, Botox and Your Downtown Dental Clinic

What is Bruxism?

Bruxism is the medical name for unconscious teeth grinding or clenching while awake or asleep. It can lead to premature deterioration of your teeth, as well as headaches, earaches, facial pain or tenderness and more. 

What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin is a naturally-occurring substance that can temporarily paralyze muscle tissue. Until recently, it was mainly used as a cosmetic procedure to reduce the signs of ageing and muscle elasticity in the face. However, it is now emerging as a medical treatment for a variety of health concerns.

How Botox Helps

Injected into the masseter muscle, Botox can temporarily paralyze the area and afford relief to suffering patients. This is proving much more effective than some conventional bruxism treatments. These treatments, which include anti-inflammatory medicine, often cannot effectively address the problem’s source, making Botox a promising alternative.

Attention to our
valued patients!

We’ve recently become aware of some false advertising circulating on TikTok, claiming that we offer dental implants at a price that simply isn’t accurate.


Your trust means everything to us, and we want to ensure that you’re well-informed. Please be cautious of online ads that appear fraudulent, especially those on TikTok, that claim to represent our clinic or other dental practices. We will never promote dental services with a specific price point, as everyone’s needs vary, and factors such as coverage requirements differ from person to person.


If you’re considering dental implants or any other dental work, we encourage you to reach out to us directly. Our team is here to provide you with accurate information and guidance on your dental needs. Your oral health is our top priority, and we’re dedicated to helping you make informed decisions!


Here are some examples of how the deceptive advertisements might look.
