We see so many patients come to us looking to treat teeth grinding. Teeth grinding does not always result in symptoms or issues, but it may cause jaw pain and discomfort, as well as wear down your teeth over time. Another common concern is the headaches and earaches cause by teeth grinding.
Around 70% of all bruxism cases are caused during sleep, and is thought to be stress-related and also caused by anxiety. With an additional link between teeth grinding and obstructive sleep apnoea (OPA), there are further contributing factors that are being explored.
How to Treat Bruxism
Dr Tapan Patel
With over 19 years’ experience in medicine, and over 17 years of that spent in aesthetic medicine, Dr Tapan Patel is a leading authority when it comes to injectable treatments, such as Botox and dermal filler.
Setting up PHI Clinic on Harley Street in 2014, Dr Patel and the team have been awarded ‘Best Clinic London’ by the Aesthetics team twice in a row. The awards and acclimation received are testament to not only the high-quality procedures and results achieved, but also the dedicated care PHI Clinic patients receive at 102 Harley Street.
Consultations to Treat Teeth Grinding
One of the most important stages of treatment is the consultation. PHI Clinic places great emphasis on this element of the process, as it allows our medical professionals to evaluate your presented concerns, and devise the best treatment plan for your individual concerns. We never treat any two patients the same, as every indication is different.
Our doctors carry out a thorough facial assessment, and there is also the opportunity to have a Visia Skin Assessment session, using our state-of-the-art camera system that analyses key skin concerns by mapping and scanning your face.
We also advise that all new patients have a skincare discussion with one of our aestheticians, as this enables you to get the best possible result and achieves longevity.
With the relatively simple procedure of using Botox to treat teeth grinding, PHI Clinic’s highly-trained injectable doctors can help alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with bruxism. In addition to relaxing the masseter muscle in the jaw, they can slim the jawline with botulinum toxin, making a much more refined silhouette and contour.
To schedule a personal consultation with one of our injectable doctors, please call our in-house team on 0207 034 5999, or submit an email enquiry at email@example.com, and a member of staff will contact you shortly to discuss availability for a consultation.
