Masseter reduction for Bruxism and Jawline Narrowing


What is Bruxism?

Bruxism or teeth grinding is a parafunctional activity that includes unconscious clenching, grinding, or bracing of the teeth. Over time, chronic clenching of the jaw leads to hypertrophy of masseters and temporalis musculature. Many people suffer from pain, discomfort, headaches and dental erosion, and this condition often causes the face to take on a masculine and square appearance.

What are the treatment options?

Masseter reduction or Jawline narrowing is a process to achieve a more defined, youthful jawline using wrinkle relaxing injections. This can be combined with Dermal fillers for non-surgical jawline contouring to improve signs of aging and sculpt a more aesthetically appealing chin and jaw.

Each patient’s needs and expectations are unique. During your initial consultation, your doctor will discuss your concerns and determine the best suitable combination of treatments to achieve your desired results.
