If this is your first time hearing that many dentists in Edmonton and across North America offer Botox services, then you may be wondering why. What does Botox have to do with dentistry? Why does Edmonton's Azarko Dental Group offer Botox alongside their general dentistry and cosmetic dental care?
The truth is that Botox has a natural place in dentistry, and that it was only a matter of time before Botox services were widely available at Edmonton dental clinics.
Not too long ago most dentists were only concerned about the function and physical health of their patient's teeth and gums. Cosmetic concerns generally took a backseat. Nowadays, however, it is becoming widely recognized that cosmetic and oral health concerns often go hand-in-hand, and that emotional health and well-being are just as important as one's physical health.
Dental clinics now offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures which are intended both to improve a patient's appearance and address their physical and mental health. You can visit a dentist for teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, and teeth realignment. All of these procedures enable patients to find a renewed sense of confidence in their smiles.
Botox treatments were therefore a natural extension of the aesthetically oriented services already offered at the majority of dental clinics. Not only do dentists have the right education, skills, and experience in the assessment of overall facial aesthetics, but they have the necessary facilities and medical training to deliver Botox injections safely and effectively.
You definitely want to be in the expert hands of a dental professional if you are considering Botox injections. They have extensive knowledge about cranial and facial anatomy and perform injections on a daily basis. Dentists are no longer just trained to inspect and drill teeth, but many are now becoming proficient in a variety of intricate craniofacial procedures.
The dental professionals at the Azarko Dental Group are committed to making every procedure as comfortable and pain-free as possible, and we have ample experience providing Botox injections for our Edmonton patients.
