Why Get Botox at a Dental Clinic?


For many patients, the routine is the same: Every six months, pop in for a cleaning, and, while they’re at it, a touch-up Botox treatment to frown and laugh lines. A few years ago, the idea seemed odd: Botox, at the dentist? Today, however, it’s one of the most popular services dentists perform.

It makes sense. Now the question has flipped: If you’ve been thinking about wrinkle treatment—one that’s proven, painless and fast—why wouldn’t you have it done at the dentist?

Until a few years ago, Canadian dentists were only using Botox to treat medical conditions such as teeth grinding and jaw pain.

Here in BC, dentists who have had training in the use of dermal fillers from an accredited speciality program can get approval from the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia to administer Botox for cosmetic purposes. Very convenient for women and men who want to get a subtle, younger look in a safe and familiar environment.

Here are some of the top reasons to take advantage of Botox cosmetic treatments at your Kelowna dental clinic:

1) Botox maintenance and teeth cleanings time well together

Since Botox treatments usually last several months and patients always want to keep up the youthful results, the timing works well with regular dental cleanings. Since you’re already here for your biannual cleaning, make your Botox maintenance easy and stay for a few extra minutes.

2) You already know and trust your dentist and the clinic

When you’re having any kind of medical or cosmetic procedure done, it’s important to feel comfortable. Unlike spas, when you get Botox at the dentist, you know you can trust the person administering it—the family dentist you’ve probably known for years, who, by the way, has heaps of experience giving injections to awake and squirming patients.

Plus, a dental clinic is both a discreet and professional place to get a dermal filler. It’s up to you if you want to share your beauty secret!

3) It’s relatively affordable

You can give your skin the smoother, natural-looking appearance you’ve been after for just a few hundred dollars.
