Botox® is more than just a cosmetic treatment! Many people fail to realize that Botox® can also be used effectively for many dental issues as well, including relaxing facial muscles and offering relief to patients who suffer from chronic migraines and headaches, as well as jaw pain related to TMJ or Bruxism. Cosmetically, Botox ® can be used to help improve the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet, as well as improve the look of your smile if you have uneven lips and/or a gummy smile. Wentworth Family Dental is pleased to offer both cosmetic and therapeutic Botox ®.
Your SW Calgary Choice for Cosmetic & Therapeutic Botox®!
What is Botox®?
Botox® injections work to block the nerve signals to certain muscles, thereby temporarily relaxing or paralyzing the muscles. It, therefore, limits movement and lessens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyes, around the eyes, and around the mouth, creating an overall smoother and younger looking appearance. Botox® can also be used to treat gummy smiles (high lip line), where traditionally the treatment would be surgery. With Botox® and potentially a crown or bridge, we are able to establish a more symmetrical dental aesthetic to your smile. Therapeutically, Botox® can help relax muscle contractions that contribute to TMD-related symptoms like facial pain, jaw pain, and migraines.
Dentists are in a unique position to be able to provide effective cosmetic Botox® since they understand the relationship between bone structure, facial muscles, facial nerves, and tissues, as well as the skin of the face. Whether you are receiving Botox® to reduce visible facial lines, help improve a high lip line, or alleviate jaw pain or migraines, Wentworth Family Dental believes that function and esthetics are partners in achieving optimal oral health and wellness, and we look forward to helping you get there.
