What is TMD and Bruxism?

Dealing with jaw pain or the habit of grinding your teeth can be more than just uncomfortable – it can really get in the way of enjoying daily life.

You might have heard of these issues being called TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction) or bruxism (teeth grinding). TMD can make your jaw hurt or feel stiff, and sometimes, it might even make a clicking noise when you’re eating or talking. Bruxism, on the other hand, might have you waking up with a sore jaw or teeth because you’ve been grinding them in your sleep without even realising it.

Stress, misaligned teeth, or other underlying health issues can cause these issues. Our team is committed to finding the root of the issue so that you can say goodbye to that pain. Let us help you find the relief you deserve. Book your consultation today.

How Do Masseter Muscle Relaxants Work?

Masseter muscle relaxants are a simple and effective way to treat TMD and bruxism.

The masseter muscle, one of the main muscles used for chewing, can become overly active and lead to jaw tension, pain, and teeth grinding. A masseter uses a purified protein to block the nerve signals that cause the muscle to contract.

As a result, the muscle relaxes, decreasing your jaw pain, headaches and the harmful effects of teeth grinding. It relieves your discomfort while also preventing further damage and can last for months.

Masseter Muscle Relaxant FAQs

  • How long does masseter treatment last?
    Masseter treatment effects can last between 4 to 6 months. Over time, with regular treatments, some patients may notice longer-lasting results as the muscle adapts to reduced activity.
  • How long does masseter treatment take?
    A masseter treatment session is quick and efficient, typically taking only about 15 minutes for the full appointment. It's a convenient option for those with busy schedules, requiring no downtime.
  • Are there any side effects of masseter treatment?
    Side effects of masseter treatment are generally minimal and temporary. Some patients might experience slight bruising, swelling at the injection site, or mild discomfort, which usually resolves within a few days.
