At Progressive Dental in South East (SE) Calgary, we offer BOTOX COSMETIC® or BOTOX® Therapeutic™ treatments.v
BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments provide a solution to ridges or creases in the skin called wrinkles. Wrinkles appear as people age, although younger people may also notice them in their skin. These creases are most visible in the face, neck, top of forearms, and back of hands.
BOTOX® Therapeutic™ treatments can be used to relieve the pain and treat the symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ).
The temporomandibular joint connects the jaw to the skull, enabling lower jaw movements. When injured or damaged, it can lead to a disorder called TMJ syndrome. BOTOX® Therapeutic™ treatments can be injected directly into the chewing (masseter and temporalis) muscles. It relaxes muscles and reduces tension and pain in the jaw area.
As with any dental procedure, it’s important to be open about your medical history. Notify your dentist about any medications you’re taking, and dental procedures or surgeries you have recently had. This will help your dentist decide whether the procedure is right for you.
