There are various reasons our Calgary dental patients choose Botox treatment, from the treatment of certain dental conditions such as bruxism and TMJ to more cosmetic reasons like removing wrinkles. Botox can help relieve the symptoms of these conditions as well as make you feel more confident and look more youthful.

Botox is a treatment that can only be prescribed by a healthcare professional and is used as a temporary treatment for dental patients with bruxism habits. Treatments with Botox are comfortable and quick, often requiring no anesthesia!

Therapeutic Botox

If you suffer from Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, tooth grinding or frequent headaches that have not responded to other dental treatments or relaxation therapy, you may be a candidate for therapeutic Botox treatment. Using Botox treatment for dental complications can have many benefits, some of which include:

  • Reduction/elimination of nighttime grinding
  • Reduction of headaches
  • Less discomfort when using jaw
  • Reduction of jaw tension
  • Less lockjaw

Cosmetic Botox

Some of our patients use Botox treatment for cosmetic purposes. Botox is used to block nerve impulses and restrict muscle contractions; this relaxes the muscles reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face. This can give you a more radiant and youthful appearance.

If you suffer from discomfort due to teeth grinding or TMJ, or just want a more youthful appearance, contact our dental office in Calgary and schedule your Botox appointment. We look forward to helping you decide whether Botox is the right treatment option for you!
