Your SW Calgary Choice for Therapeutic Botox in Marda Loop!

Odeon Dental is pleased to offer Cosmetic and Therapeutic Botox to our patients.
Many people don’t realize, but botox is more than just a cosmetic treatment. It can be an effective treatment for many dental issues as well.

Therapeutically, Botox can be used to relax facial muscles and give relief to patients who suffer from chronic migraines and headaches, as well as jaw pain relating to TMJ (issues surrounding the jaw and jaw muscles) or Bruxism (teeth grinding). Botox can be used to improve the appearance of lines and crow’s feet, as well as improve the look of your smile by improving uneven lips and a gummy smile.

What Exactly is Botox?

Botox injections work by blocking the nerve signals to certain muscles, thereby relaxing or temporarily paralyzing the muscles. This, in turn, limits movement and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyes, around the eyes (crow’s feet) and around the mouth (frown lines), creating an overall smoother appearance. Furthermore, Botox can relax the muscle contractions that contribute to TMD related symptoms like jaw pain, facial pain, and migraines.

Therapeutic Botox Treatment for TMD and Migraines

Botox is an effective treatment for relieving pain as a result of TMD or migraines. TMD is the name given to several problems with jaw movement and pain in and around the jaw. When jaw muscles are strained, they contract, which leads to muscle spasm, neck pain, frequent headaches, migraines, and in some cases, tooth sensitivity. While some treatments include aspirin or wearing a small plastic guard while sleeping, Botox is gaining popularity as an effective treatment. A few Botox injections can relax the muscles, thus helping to prevent the muscles from tensing around your jawline, thereby reducing the intensity of the muscle contractions that contribute to the TMD related symptoms like jaw pain, facial pain, and migraines.

Cosmetic Botox Treatment for Wrinkles, Lines, Crow’s Feet and High Lip Line

Since dentists understand the relationship between bone structure, facial muscles, facial nerves, and tissues as well as the skin of the face, they are in a unique situation to provide you with this cosmetic care. Botox can be used cosmetically to help create a younger or more polished look, by helping to erase lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet, as well as diminishing the prominence of neckbands. Botox injections are administered to temporarily relax a patient’s muscles, which creates a smoother, younger look.

Botox can also be used to treat a ‘gummy smile.’ Traditionally, the treatment for a high lip line would most likely be surgery. Botox can offer a much less invasive option for patients and can help raise the gingival height to meet the lip line. With botox and potentially a crown or bridge, we are able to establish a more symmetrical dental aesthetic for your smile. With some Botox Therapy and lip augmentation with dermal fillers, the muscles surrounding the lip are weakened so they cannot raise the lip as high as before.
