Jaw clenching can often be a sub-conscious action that happens when a person is feeling stressed or anxious, while concentrating or during intense exercise. Facial pain and stiffness, earache, headache and worn down teeth may occur as a result of jaw clenching, although not all people experience these symptoms.

Some lifestyle choices can be contributing factors of jaw clenching, like: drinking alcohol, smoking, using recreational drugs and drinking lots of caffeinated drinks.
At Time Clinic we recommend a treatment to relax the muscles around the jaw area as an effective remedy. Mucle relaxing injections are designed to temporarily do just this, but a longer term treatment plan can be discussed, should this be necessary to you.
