What is teeth grinding?

Teeth grinding, otherwise known as bruxism, is the unconscious clenching and rubbing together of your teeth. As well as being bad for your teeth, it can cause headaches, sensitive teeth and TMJ pain.

What causes teeth grinding?

Teeth grinding often occurs during sleep, but can also happen unconsciously while you are awake. It has a number of potential causes, including stress and anxiety as well as an abnormal bite or crooked teeth.

What treatments are available?

There is no current recognised treatment for teeth grinding, and most commonly, mouthguards are recommended. However, mouthguards don’t get to the root of the problem causing the grinding, and just treat the symptoms. This is why muscle relaxant injections can be more effective, as they relax the muscles to relieve the tenseness that can cause clenching and grinding. These injections also have the added benefit of slimming your face – giving you a more feminine contour to your jawline!

Qualifications, Accolades and Experience

I qualified as dentist in 2007 and have since gained a Level 7 qualification in injectable treatments (the highest possible), so you can trust that I have the skills and knowledge to deliver your treatment safely and successfully.

I completed a six-month mentorship programme with Dr Lee Walker (a leader in the industry), which has ensured I am working with the most evidenced-based research in aesthetics. I also recently took part in an ultrasound and cadaver course, which allows me to see where blood vessels are and reduce the risk of complications.

In addition, I am a senior clinical mentor, an international speaker and a key opinion leader for a dermal filler brand, demonstrating my extensive experience training other medical aesthetic practitioners.

My team and I are fully trained and equipped to manage any adverse events that may occur, thanks to my training and membership of the Complications in Medical Aesthetic Collaborative (CMAC). You can trust you are in safe hands when you undergo any treatment at my clinic.
