Popular culture has associated Botox purely with cosmetics, but this is just another thing a dentist might have in their toolkit.
Clenching and grinding (bruxism) may result in sore muscles, headaches and damage to teeth and dental restorations. Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are all different brands of injectable neuromodulator medications that help reduce muscle contraction.
Neuromodulators, night guards physiotherapy and massage are all options to manage bruxism and myofascial pain. Neuromodulator medication may even be an eligible benefit on your insurance.
Beyond treatment for pain, Dr. Chan is also certified by the Alberta Dental Association and College to treat forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet.
