Correction of Masseter Muscle Hypertrophy (Bruxism) with botulinum toxin type A (Botox)

Characterized by an increase in the musculature in the jaw region, it may lead to a reduction in the opening of the mouth and facial pain. The administration of botulinum toxin is highly recommended for the treatment of muscular hypertrophy of the Masseter. Its application is simple, only mildly painful and devoid of side effects.
