Dr. Alma Iancau has received the certificate for Advanced & Comprehensive Botox Administration Training in June 2020, in Toronto Ontario, at the Botox Training Centre. She is excited to provide Botox treatment for people who suffer from parafunctional habits like clenching or grinding, temporomandibular disorders, tension headaches, migraines, chronic facial pain, or gummy smiles.
Botulinum Toxin (BTX) is useful in the treatment of many diseases. Dental clinicians are experts on the head and neck area and have a deep comprehension of the anatomy and physiology of the muscles of the face.
Botulinum Toxin is a polypeptide produced by the gram-positive anaerobic bacterium clostridium botulinum. It is injected at the neuro-muscular junction in the orofacial area to decrease pain, teeth sensitivity, clenching intensity, and clenching duration. It also improves facial esthetics for a younger look and overall changes patients’ quality of life.
Many times people under stress will clench or grind their teeth due to heavy muscle contractions. Chronic grinding and clenching exacerbates migraines. A correct dose of Botox will reduce muscle contractions and will offer a more relaxed, smooth facial esthetics, reducing all tensions in the area.
If you find your smile shows too much of the gum, Botox can help gummy smiles to regain their esthetics by correcting it.
The effects of Botox treatment can last 6-12 months. Try it out or call us to tell you more about its advantages in your orofacial area.
