Since neuromodulator injections treat a range of neuromuscular conditions, there are a range of symptoms that may indicate whether a patient could benefit from treatment. High lip lines, discomfort with dentures are just some of the symptoms to look for.
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is usually fairly noticeable as a condition. Overly worn teeth is a key sign, as well as constant clenching of your jaw and active grinding. Most patients with bruxism have facial, neck, shoulder and jaw pain. This leads to increased sensitivity and loss of teeth, fillings, headaches, earache, and other conditions. Sleep quality is often impacted.
If bruxism is not addressed, it can lead to temporomandibular disorders. Common symptoms include headaches or migraines, severe jaw pain and stiffness, and popping, clicking or other noises in the jaw. Most patients also experience significant ear pain and ringing in the ears. Other common symptoms include vertigo, neck pain and stiffness, sensitive and damaged teeth, and even postural problems.
