Teeth grinding (Bruxism) is a common condition in which you grind, gnash or clench your teeth. If you have bruxism, you may unconsciously clench your teeth when you’re awake or grind them during sleep. Bruxism can be frequent and severe enough to lead to jaw disorders, headaches, damaged teeth and other problems. Luckily, at Misk Beauty, we offer teeth grinding injections to help relax your tight jaw muscles.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are problems affecting the jaw joint and the muscles and other tissues around the jaw joint. These disorders usually cause pain or reduced movement of the jaw, and sometimes sounds such as clicking or grating of the jaw joint.
