What is Botox?
Botox, or Botulinum Toxin, is a purified protein that can be used in dentistry. At Canada Place Dental, our dentists are qualified to provide Botox as a therapeutic treatment option for patients in Edmonton.
Our Edmonton dentists offer therapeutic Botox treatment. Botox is injected into the facial muscles, releasing neurotoxins, preventing the muscles from contracting and helping them to relax.
The ability of Botox to relax face muscles can help patients struggling with dental issues, including to:
- Relieve jaw and facial muscle pain caused by TMJ disorder
- Relieve jaw and facial muscle pain caused by teeth grinding or clenching
- Restrain muscle movement and keep teeth from relapsing in orthodontic treatment
- Fix irregular muscle contractions when adjusting to new dentures
