Is there any reason to avoid muscle relaxants?

You should avoid injectables if you:

  • Are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • Suffer from neuro-muscular or auto-immune disorders.
  • Have a known sensitivity to the solution (BtxA or other constituents).
  • Are taking certain medications such as quinine, aminoglycoside antibiotics.

If you take omega-3 and anti-coagulant NSAIDS for bruising, or have suffered from dysmorphic psychological issues, be sure to mention this to your clinician.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
In accordance with recent ADA recommendations, we are operating at Level 1 restrictions. We can continue seeing patients for all routine treatments, including checkups and cleans. We will continue to screen patients before seeing our dentists, and any patient that is suspected of having COVID-19 will not be able to be treated. This protocol will be in place until at least the 31st May 2020. If you have any questions, please call us.
