Bruxism is a chronic pathology that affects more and more people in Spain and that normally occurs during sleep. The application of botulinum toxin type A) in the chewing muscles has proven to be an excellent tool to combat bruxism disorders.
The toxin is a powerful local muscle relaxant that acts for a long period of time (3 to 6 months), relaxing the affected chewing muscles. We are experts in the treatment of bruxism in Carabanchel.
