I’ve been grinding my teeth for as long as I can remember and I finally took the plunge and got Botox for my masseters (jaw muscles). My doctor said I had very large masseters from grinding and clenching my teeth all my life. Nearly all the pressure and the unnecessary clenching eased up at once and my face even got slimmer as the muscles shrunk. Unfortunately the results are temporary so I’ll probably have to do it again but it’s worth looking into for those who have a chronic problem.
