Botox and Implants: Dr. Roberts speaks at the PDC 2018

PDC 200x200Curious about Botox and Implants? Join us at the 2018 Pacific Dental Conference in Vancouver, BC to learn how dentists can use botulinum toxin (aka Botox, Dysport) to improve implant success. Dr. Warren Roberts and Dr. Jan Roberts will be lecturing on Thursday and will also be available to speak with attendees at our booth #92. We invite dentists, dental assistants (CDA’s), hygienists (RDH’s), office managers and receptionists to come speak with us and learn more about botulinum toxin, dermal filler and laser training (aka Botox training) specifically for dental teams.

Botox and Implants: Using Botulinum Toxin to Increase Implant Success & Improve Crown Emergence Profile

Using botulinum toxin prior to implant surgery can enhance hard and soft tissue grafting success and aid in successful bone regeneration.

Date: Thursday, March 8, 2018
Speakers: Dr. Warren Roberts, Dr. Jan Roberts
Time: 8:30 AM – 11:00 AM
Location: Vancouver Convention CentreRoom: TBA
Sponsor: Hiossen

The lecture will address Botox and implants: how botulinum toxin can be used prior to implant surgery to relax the muscles that insert into adjacent soft tissue and strongly influence success or failure.  The muscles that insert into the periodontium and affect  implant health and longevity will be reviewed. How muscle relaxation can aid vital angiogenesis by reducing subconscious habits, excessive muscular contraction and consequently improve implant integration will be discussed. Medications for anxiety and depression also influence the process. Botulinum toxin has a positive affect on anxiety and depression; the research will be presented.

In the future, botulinum toxin treatment, CT scans aiding dermal fillers, and bone/implant  placement will positively impact the 3D appearance of the face.

The future of botulinum toxin is the synergy between its therapeutic and cosmetic outcomes.


  1. Understand how relaxation of the musculature using botulinum toxin can enhance positive outcomes when placing implants
  2. Understand how the muscles surrounding the alveolar ridge can interfere with implant integration and how botulinum toxin can be used to relax them
  3. Understand how botulinum toxin can improve angiogenesis in graft and implant treatment
