Not so long ago, it was considered trifling to offer a patient teeth whitening or porcelain veneers to enhance their smiles. It seemed like physical health and function or feelings of self-esteem and well-being were considered outside the realm of dentistry. This is not the case today – especially not here at Welcome Smile Dental.
We believe that health and function go hand in hand in terms of achieving optimal health and wellness. We use Botox to treat Bruxism (TMJ/TMD), Frown Lines, Crows Feet, and Forehead Wrinkles. As an Alberta Dentist, Dr. Kellen Smith is licensed to administer Botox® to his patients.
What is Botox®
Botox® is a brand name drug that contains a toxin called botulin. Botulin is a naturally purified protein that is considered safe when injected in small, targeted doses. When Botox® is injected, just a tiny amount relaxes the overworked muscles that cause wrinkles, lines, and can even relax the spastic muscles that cause jaw pain.
