Teeth grinding is also known as Bruxism where a patient faces an unconscious clenching of the teeth, whether awake or asleep leading to physical pain and dental issues. One can have headaches, earaches, facial pain, tooth sensitivity or even chipping of the teeth due to chronic teeth grinding. Teeth grinding affects around 10% of the population. It can occur in both children and adults but is most common in 25 – 44-year-old.
If you grind your teeth in your sleep you might be unaware of the problem at first unless your
partner hears you, but if you do it regularly you may wake with an aching jaw or in pain. Other
- In several cases, it can result into short teeth as they worn out eventually leading to increased tooth sensitivity and, possibly, the loss of your teeth

- Gum inflammation or receding gums
- Loose or sensitive teeth

Dental @ Central South Morang understands that this dental issue can be caused by a variety of
reasons such as stress, anxiety, and sleep disorders, and can become worsened through the
consumption of excessive alcohol, caffeine or recreational drugs. Humans use masseter muscle for chewing and when overexercised it can cause a wide or square-looking jaw. Often women feel that their face looks too masculine and wish to have a more rounded feminine look.
We use XXXXXX anti-wrinkle injection to address this condition. Our dentist injects anti-wrinkle injection into specific targeted muscles which help our patient to relax ensuring them a relief from chronic clenching or grinding. This treatment takes approximate 15 minutes to administer. The results last for 3-4 months (depending on the patient) and hence one will require a regular re visit to us to maintain the optimum results, however, the results are noticeable between14 days after treatment.
