Botox in Calgary Alberta
Dentists use Botox in two main ways:
- Cosmetically to stop facial wrinkles
- Therapeutically to treat facial pain from overactive jaw muscle activity.
What causes wrinkles?
Movements in the facial muscles which are beneath our skin cause contractions which over many years lead to wrinkles.
As general dentists, our job is not complete with the achievement of shining white, beautiful teeth and healthy gums. Botox, a drug which is used for medical purposes, can be used to stop facial muscles from contracting. Once treated with Botox, the procedure can stop the formation of wrinkles for many months after the treatment.
Botox is also used for treating jaw pain or TMJ which is a condition that can result in facial pain in patients. It can minimize teeth grinding by stopping those muscles from contracting.
As a part of our treatment options, we provide Botox in Calgary.
All dental services at our office are offered by general dentists.
