Over time, constant grinding and clenching of the teeth can wear them down, even potentially causing them to become shorter and eventually break. Dr. Samadian and his team can treat this issue with a quick, easy, and non-surgical solution.
If you grind your teeth when you’re not eating, you may be experiencing an ailment known as bruxism, which is a type of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. Certain issues with this joint, which connects your skull and lower jawbone, can eventually impact more than just your teeth. If left unaddressed, this problem can cause discomfort and stiffness in the jaw, frequent headaches, migraines, insomnia, or even depression.
The good news is that Dr. Amin Samadian offers Botox® as a minimally invasive bruxism therapy that comes with little pain and no downtime. If you’re in San Francisco, the East Bay, or the nearby areas, Dr. Samadian and his team are ready to help you find relief from unnecessary grinding and clenching.
