Could Botox prevent bruxism?


Undergoing Botox treatment could help to prevent bruxism, one expert has suggested.Botox could be used to prevent bruxism, according to one expert.

David Castillo, writing for the Grinza International Journal of Wrinkles, explained in severe cases of teeth grinding Botox can be a successful method of treating the condition.

He said: "Widely used commercially for cosmetic surgery applications, Botox weakens muscles in a person's jaw, thus disabling them and preventing motion that causes teeth grinding to take place."

If untreated, teeth grinding can be "extremely harmful" to a person's overall oral health, according to Mr Castillo, with the habit leading to an eventual loss of teeth in the most extreme circumstances.

As well as Botox being a useful treatment to help minimise the effects of severe bruxism, experts recommend adopting a healthier diet, reducing levels of stress and taking various vitamin supplements, such as magnesium, B5 and calcium.

According to the Bruxism Association, some one in ten people suffer from excessive teeth grinding.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800417442-ADNFCR

Katie Price has work done on dental veneers


Bruxism has caused damage to Katie Price's dental veneers.Katie Price had to return to her dentist in LA recently after requiring work on her dental veneers.

The former glamour model revealed on What Katie Did Next that they had come loose and the camera crew joined her as she flew across the Atlantic to have them repaired.

She was told that the problem lies in the fact that she grinds and clenches her teeth during the night, a process also known as bruxism.

Luckily, the damage was repaired and Price was given some dental guards to prevent any further mishaps.

According to the Bruxism Association, people aged 35 to 55 are the most likely to display problems as a result of grinding their teeth.

Women appear to be more affected by it than men.

Earlier in 2010, it was revealed that Price had flown all the way to Los Angeles in order to have Botox, despite it being available in London and the rest of the UK.
