Could i receive botox injections for bruxism on the NHS?

Q. Could I recive Botox injections for Bruxism on the NHS? I have suffered with Bruxism for over 30 years. Treatments so far have been, my wisdom teeth removed, mouth guards, and the left joint of my jaw flushed out, none of which eased the tension in my jaw or my aching gums and constant headaches. My Orthodontist then prescribed antidepressants and discharged me.

A. I’m not aware of Botox as a reliable treatment for bruxism.However you could ask your dentist to refer you to your local oral surgery department for a 2nd opinion
