BOTOX PROCEDURE AT WESTGATE DENTAL CENTRE
Serving Maple Ridge and Surrounding Areas
WHAT IS BOTOX?
You know what Botox is all about; it is the most talked about non-surgical cosmetic procedure in which an injection of a purified protein solution called as botulinum toxin is given to patients to remove the frown lines and the wrinkles.
Botox injections take 5 to 10 minutes of your time and could potentially remove the moderate to severe lines on the face within days. It is one of the most effective anti-ageing treatments, and the effects of the injection can last for 4 months at a time.
BOTOX IN DENTISTRY
Now, you’re probably wondering why a Maple Ridge dental clinic such as ours is offering Botox Treatment. We realize most people don’t associate Botox with general dentistry, but actually, it can be a very good treatment for a disorder such the Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
Not a lot of doctors realize that headaches and earaches could very well have something to do with the jaw and not necessarily a sinus problem. When the TMJ symptoms are exacerbated, they could lead to an extreme toothache, lockjaw ad ear pain.
A botulinum injection is actually one of the fastest and most long-lasting treatments for this dangerous condition. So if you’re suffering from the following conditions, you should visit our botox clinic for a proper diagnosis.
- Severe headache or migraine caused by teeth grinding
- Severe tension or discomfort in the jaws which prevents you from talking and chewing normally
- Extreme shoulder pain and neck pain

HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?
Botox injections typically last for three to four months. The effects of Botox can vary depending on the individual and the area of the face being treated, but most people find that the effects of Botox last for up to four months. After this time, the effects start to fade, and a new round of injections may be necessary to maintain the desired results.
Botox injections are a popular cosmetic procedure used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. However, as with any medical procedure, there are some potential side effects that should be considered before undergoing treatment.
The most common side effects of Botox injections are temporary and include redness, swelling, bruising, bleeding, and tenderness at the injection site. These side effects usually resolve within a few days to a week.
More serious side effects of Botox are rare but can occur. These include;
- droopy eyelids,
- blurred vision,
- dry mouth,
- difficulty speaking and swallowing,
- and muscle weakness.
In rare cases, a person may experience an allergic reaction to the Botox, which can include hives, rash, difficulty breathing, and swelling of the face, lips, or throat. In addition to the potential side effects, there are also risks associated with Botox injections. These include infection, nerve damage, and even paralysis. It is important to discuss these risks with your doctor before undergoing treatment.
There are many reasons to go for a Botox.
#1: Real and long-lasting results in quick time – It takes only 24 to 48 hours for the Botox treatment to work. You will experience less pain and the results last for 3 to 4 months.
#2: No downtime – Botox is a non-surgical procedure for which you don’t need to take out any time for the recovery. You will be able to get back to work almost immediately after the 10-minute procedure.
#3: Affordable – botox injection is surprisingly affordable. However, it should be performed by a skilled and experienced doctor, dentist or health care professional, someone who is licensed to offer this treatment.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
When getting Botox, you can expect to experience a few side effects, including temporary redness and swelling at the injection sites. You may also experience slight bruising, tingling, or burning sensations. These side effects should go away within a few days.
You can also expect to see results within a few days to a few weeks after getting Botox.
It is important to remember that Botox is not a permanent solution. If you want to maintain the results of your Botox treatment, you will need to return for regular follow–up treatments. Overall, Botox is a safe and effective way to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. It is important to speak to a qualified professional before undergoing any cosmetic procedure.
