Botox (neuromodulators)

You’ve probably heard of products such as Botox, Xeomin and Dysport and wonder what they are. All of these products are classified as neuromodulators which are used all over the world to help with muscle related issues and of course with some aesthetic concerns. In Alberta dentists are licensed to inject these products after proper training and vigorous exams. At Dental at the Met, we have received training in injecting the muscles used primarily for grinding and clenching which are part and parcel of TMD (also known as temporomandibular joint disorder, you may also know them as tension headaches). If you suffer from headaches, clenching and grinding, or pain from your jaw joints, come see us today for a consultation regarding your pain, to discuss what may be the root cause of your jaw pain,. We can also talk about different treatment modalities and teach you how it works and to see whether or not you are a candidate for treatment. Aesthetically, if you want to prevent wrinkles which are on areas of the face which are in our scope of practice, we can discuss neuromodulator treatments for these problem areas as well!
