There are many reasons why people chose to receive Botox treatment. From wanting to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, to alleviating the pain of migraine headaches, Botox has been used successfully in both esthetic and therapeutic applications for over 30 years.
In order to provide these treatments to patients, dentists have had to train in these procedures to be certified by the Alberta Dental Association and College. Dr. Caroline is able to use neuromodulators to treat Esthetic concerns of the Upper Face, Mid-Face, and Lower-Face/Neck, as well as the Therapeutic concerns of Tension Headaches, Migraine Headaches, TMJ, Bruxism (Tooth grinding), and Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction.
Dentists are in an excellent position to offer this treatment because:
We know the anatomical structures of the head and neck (our area of study)!
We can give comfortable injections; we do it all day long - every day!
We offer before and after photography and record keeping to analyze the success of treatment and plan future treatment.
