Botox in the Dental Office

Okanagan Dentistry is proud to offer Botox Cosmetic services to our patients.  Dentists are in an excellent position to be administering Botox, as they deal with the muscles of facial expressions on a daily basis and have in depth understanding of aesthetic dental and facial treatments.  Botox appointments can be combined with your dental treatment for your convenience and privacy.

What is Botox Cosmetic?

Botox is a natural, purified protein that acts to relax wrinkle causing muscles, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance.  Botox is a simple, quick and minimally invasive treatment that temporarily reduces the appearance of frown lines, forehead lines, bunny lines on the nose, and crows feet around the eyes with no downtime.  The effects of Botox can be seen within 3-10 days and can last up to 4 months.  Although Botox is mostly known for its cosmetic purposes, it is also extremely common for its therapeutic uses in treating TMJ, migraines, and muscle tightness caused  by clenching/grinding.

Botox Cosmetic Uses:

  • Reducing facial expression lines including: frown lines, forehead lines, bunny lines, and crows feet around the eyes.
  • Treating Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders
  • Treating muscle tightness from teeth clenching/grinding problems
  • patients who suffer from chronic headaches or migraines
