Our dentists at Peachland Dental are qualified to provide Botox® as a therapeutic and / or cosmetic treatment option to reduce jaw pain, reduce or prevent wrinkles, and more for patients in the Okanagan Valley.
Botox is also referred to as Botulinum Toxin. Often used in dentistry, this purified protein can be injected into the facial muscles to release neurotoxins into the muscles, preventing them from contracting.
This helps your muscles to relax and produces therapeutic benefits. With Botox, facial wrinkles can also be reduced or eliminated.
These treatments are an integral aspect of cosmetic dental care for many patients who want to relax their facial muscles and take advantage of the aesthetic benefits. Our dentists are qualified to administer Botox treatments.
Our dentists use Botox to provide the following therapeutic treatments for patients in the Okanagan Valley.
We often recommend Botox for patients who clench or grind their teeth while they sleep, but are unable or unwilling to tolerate wearing a night guard.
This may also be a good option if you have noticed recurring TMJ pain or jaw pain, despite wearing a night guard. Your dentist will inject Botox into the facial muscles involved in clenching or grinding. This minimizes or weakens the muscles, relieving stress and strain which cause pain in the TMJ muscles and jaw.
Do you suffer from headache pain or migraine-like headaches due to your bite as a result of grinding or clenching?
Botox treatment may effectively reduce or eliminate certain types of headaches.
Though you may tolerate a night guard well if you clench or grind your teeth at night, you may not find it practical to wear your dental appliance during the day.
Unfortunately, the clenching and grinding likely continues for you throughout the day if you clench or grind at night.
With Botox treatment, we can weaken the jaw muscles to help reduce the risk of grinding - and save you from breaking teeth or dental restorations such as caps and fillings.
Our dentists at Peachland Dental can provide the following cosmetic treatments with Botox:
We can use Botox to eliminate or reduce wrinkles.
