Elegance. Exquisite. Excellence.

DYSPORT

Dysport is an injectable medical application your dentist can offer you to treat a number of different cosmetic and physical complaints. Dysport has only been available in Grande Prairie for a few years but has been used in Europe for a lot longer. It has many of the same cosmetic and therapeutic applications as Botox.

ARE DYSPORT AND BOTOX USED FOR THE SAME THINGS?

Like Botox, Dysport is used to treat several different issues including:

  • TMJ
  • Certain types of allergy symptoms
  • Cervical dystonia
  • Excessive sweating
  • Muscle spasms
  • Muscle stiffness in the lower limbs
  • Tension headaches
  • The appearance of deep lines and wrinkles

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Both Dysport and Botox are derived from the botulinum toxin. The botulinum toxin is a specific protein produced by the bacteria clostridium botulinum. Botox and Dysport are both name brand products derived from this protein.

The main difference between the two is that Dysport contains a faster acting formulation and can last longer than what you can typically expect with Botox. The fact that Dysport has more staying power also means it’s a bit more cost-effective than Botox.

Dysport is also known for providing you with a more natural look than Botox can. And it’s an excellent alternative if you’ve built up a resistance to Botox and are no longer seeing the results you desire.

If you want a fast-acting treatment that leaves you with soft, subtly improved skin, then Dysport is your best bet.

Never agree to get Dysport or Botox treatments, cosmetic or otherwise, from anyone who has not been certified to administer it. Incorrect use of the botulinum toxin can be extremely dangerous. Always seek care from a dentist or other medical professional at a certified Dysport centre like the Gateway Dentistry Group dental clinic in Grande Prairie.

The dentists at Gateway Dentistry Group dental clinic are trained to deliver Dysport safely and efficiently. Contact us today to learn more about available treatment options or to book an appointment.

 

 

 

 

 

How Do I know What Type of Dentistry is Right For Me?

Making a decision concerning something that defines who you are to many the first time they see you can be intimidating and confusing. Dr. John-Varghese will walk you step by step through the decision process helping you understand every aspect.

CEREC Crowns or Just a Filling
Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic or CEREC® for short is a new state-of-the-art method of reconstructing tooth restorations. This new technology has revolutionized ceramic restorations such as crowns and veneers for patients so that there is no longer a wait between preparing the restoration and finally receiving the finished product.
Dental Sealant or General Cleaning
Sealants are thin layers of resin that are placed on the pits, fissures, and grooves of molars to prevent decay on these surfaces. The majority of decay on back teeth starts in the grooves and pits of chewing surfaces, especially during the first few years after their eruption. Sealing these surfaces with composite resins prevents this kind of decay.
Zoom Teeth Whitening
The procedure is simple. It begins with short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed.
We then apply the proprietary Zoom! whitening gel, which is designed to be used specifically with the Zoom! light. The light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up any stains and discoloration.

  • During this time you can relax.
  • The gel is applied for 3-4 fifteen minute sessions, for a total treatment time of 45-60 minutes.
  • Finally, you go home with your brighter, whiter smile. We also provide you with touch-up trays so you can maintain your new smile.
Dental Implant Restoration
During the last 20 years, dental implants have become a desirable alternative to other methods of replacing missing teeth. Excellent success rates and a range of available options give dentists a variety of new ways to treat and replace lost teeth.

Your dentist can evaluate your case and tell you if you are a candidate for dental implants. Structurally, a dental implant is a titanium-based cylinder that replaces the missing tooth root. After a period of time, other parts are placed on the implant to enable your dentist to eventually place a crown (cap) on the implant. Implants can also be used to support full or partial dentures, dramatically improving denture retention and stability.

Vaneers and Laminates

Veneers and Laminates are a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of the teeth. This can change their shape, shade, and position to improve the cosmetics of your teeth and smile. They are also used to replace and restore any lost tooth structure where indicated.

Your dentist will do a complete examination of your teeth to determine if veneers are ideal for you. Veneers often provide the opportunity to dramatically transform the aesthetics of your teeth and smile.
