“In Alberta-Canada, Botox® treatments should only be provided or recommended by licensed medical physicians, dentists, or registered nurses who have also obtained relevant training in safely and effectively administering Botox® and dermal fillers.
The facial rejuvenation (botulinum toxin type A, and dermal fillers) PTIFA course that Dr. Foldart and I  successfully completed, is not only approved by the ADA+C, (Alberta Dental Association and College) but is also used to establish the Standard of Practice for facial aesthetic therapies and adjunctive procedures in the dental practice.
This standard is a tiered and gated system which helps dentists achieve a high-level of clinical efficiency and proficiency prior to progressing through the levels.
When you are considering Botox® treatment to refresh your look or relieve certain medical conditions, please schedule a consultation at You First Dental.”

What is Botox® exactly?

Botox® is a purified form of botulinum toxin, a protein that temporarily relaxes muscles. It is widely used for reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines. Botox® is also an FDA-approved treatment for conditions like chronic migraines, TMJ disorders, and excessive sweating. Botox for TMJ disorder may relieve common symptoms, such as teeth clenching and headaches.

At You First Dental we believe that enhancing one’s appearance will boost self-confidence.

Our patients often seek answers to the question: Is treatment expensive? To learn more about pricing, please schedule a consultation at You First Dental.”

What do people say about You First Dental?

How does Botox® work?

Botox® works by temporarily blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. This relaxation of the muscles leads to a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles or the alleviation of muscle-related conditions.

Typically, it’s used for cosmetic purposes, minimizes the appearance of:
• Wrinkles
• Aging lines around the eyes or forehead
• Frown lines

Since its primary function is to relax facial muscles, it can also be used for therapeutic purposes, to help relieve pain from tight jaws and other facial muscles that cause tension and headaches. Currently Botox® is used to treat over 20 different medical treatments.

When you search for “Botox® near me,” you can choose our Botox® clinic because of our proficient and knowledgeable professionals who will provide the best outcome.

Does Botox® work for TMJ/TMD disorders?

Botox® can be used for cosmetic as well as for therapeutic treatment, for example TMJ.

What is TMJ?
TMJ stands for your Temporo Mandibular Joint, the jaw joint that moves your mouth and lets you talk and eat.

When you have TMJ, you might experience one or more of the following symptoms:

• Headaches / Migraines
• Teeth clenching or grinding
• Neck pain
• Shoulder pain
• Facial pain, for example pain in your jaw

Since Botox® relaxes your muscles, patients suffering from TMJ Disorder who are experiencing one of these symptoms, would be able to get pain relief with Botox®. It is recommended as a complimentary treatment but it might be the only treatment you need when you suffer from certain symptoms.

Botox® Duration and Safety

Patients often ask, “How long does Botox® last?” Typically, the effects of Botox® can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, with variations depending on the individual and the area treated. The question of “Is Botox® safe?” is also frequently posed. Botox® has a long track record of safety when administered by qualified professionals.
