Invisalign

Invisalign is an aesthetic alternative to conventional braces, it aligns teeth through a series of transparent and personalized aligners. It is invisible, discreet and removable.


The advantages and disadvantages of the system
  • It is invisible.
  • It allows adequate dental hygiene throughout the treatment.
  • No dietary restrictions.
  • No ulcers nor injuries due to metallic braces.
  • The only disadvantage : YOU MUST WEAR IT TO GET THE RESULTS



Implants

The dental implant is an artificial titanium root placed in the bone to replace a missing tooth. This root will support a crown. Success is based on an advanced case study and a rigorous surgical method.

Placing the dental implant

Two techniques are offered, depending on the case: the first is to open a flap & the gum and place the implant into the bone, the other is flapless. A healing abutment is then placed allowing the gum to heal around the root. Then, the implant goes through a process called osseointegration during which it attaches the bone. A temporary tooth (temporary prosthesis) may be used during this period.
It often is a simple and non-traumatic intervention that is done under local anesthesia. Our dental center also offers conscious nitrous oxide sedation for a more enjoyable experience.

After osseointegration, an impression is taken to allow the dental laboratory to make a custom crown or bridge. These artificial teeth will be screwed or cemented (glued) directly onto the implant or the pivot. Impressions are taken with a 3D scanner called iTero, an innovative technology in the dental world.





Root Canal Treatment

You have an unsupportable toothache? The root canal treatment is often the solution. Root canals are often prescribed to necrotic teeth or the ones with irreversible inflammation. They also can be prescribed if a tooth is fractured due to trauma. In two words: you get to preserve your natural tooth. By keeping your natural tooth, you prevent misalignment of your teeth and loss of function.
Known as an endodontic treatment, it involves removing infected or dead pulp from the tooth.
If left untreated, the abscess caused by root canals infections can lead to serious oral health problems.



Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth extractions is a minor surgery procedure involving the removal of the third molars. Complications related to wisdom teeth include decay, gum infection and damage to the adjacent teeth. It is recommended to have your wisdom teeth removed at a younger age, since the healing process will be faster and your wisdom teeth may not be fully formed – therefore making the surgery less complex.
After taking an x-ray, your dentist will be able to assess the need to remove your wisdom teeth, as well as evaluate the complexity of the procedure. Don't be shy to ask your dentist about all the implications and details about your surgery!
We also offer CBCT 3D radiology service for complicated wisdom teeth surgeries, for a precise and detailed procedure minimizing the risk of all potential complications.
And for the anxious ones, we have sedation services that put you at ease making the experience easier!



Conscious sedation

Even today, visiting the dentist and being anxious naturally complement each other. If you or your children fall into this category, conscious nitrous oxide sedation is an excellent remedy for this problem, avoiding general anesthesia.

The effects of conscious sedation are as follows

  • Patient relaxation
  • Decreased discomfort, feeling of euphoria
  • Smile even burst out laughing in some patients
  • Appeasement
  • Reduce pain or anxiety felt by the patient
What is it?

It is a mixture of oxygen with nitrous oxide (laughing gas). These gases are breathed by the patient, allowing the effects listed there. A few minutes after the dentist installs the mask, you will begin to feel the effect of sedation and return to a normal state as soon as the procedure is over.



Dental aesthetics

Beauty is a desirable thing, and few people escape this desire. Whether bleaching, Invisalign, porcelain veneers, or rehabilitating worn teeth, we are listening.

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Home whitening
  • Zoom in-char teeth whitening
  • Invisalign
  • Aesthetics zirconia and Emax crowns
  • Feldspathic veneers




Crowns and Bridges

If your tooth is damaged but not lost, a crown can be used to restore its shape, appearance and function. You may need a crown if you have a root canal, a large filling in a tooth or a broken tooth.
A crown, also called a cap, is a hollow, artificial tooth used to cover a damaged or decayed tooth. The crown restores the tooth and protects it from further damage. Crowns can also be used to cover a discoloured or misshapen tooth. A tooth that has been fixed with a crown looks and works very much like a natural tooth.
A bridge, also called a “fixed bridge” or a “fixed dental prosthesis,” is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth. It extends across an area that has no teeth and is typically made up of an artificial tooth fused between 2 crowns.
