I got botox for masseter muscles 8 days ago. İ can grind and clench just like I used to. Do you think this is normal?

That's a pretty good dose so I'd expect it to work. I would wait at least another 7-10 days and if you still haven't noticed much change, go back in and discuss the problem with your surgeon. Hope it kicks in soon!
