The Importance Of Teeth Restorations

Dental restorations are dedicated to repair damaged or missing tooth structure. Its purpose is of great importance since it avoids degradation of oral health.

Why should we restore a damaged or missing tooth?

  • To allow for proper masticatory function.
  • To prevent any problems that may occur in the absence of intervention.
  • To fill vacant space which stops the migration of neighbouring teeth.
  • To maintain good dental hygiene, which eliminates the plaque and avoids the risk of infection.
  • Tooth restoration embellishes the smile, which has a big impact on confidence and self-esteem.

The Four More Frequent Restorations

Your dental professional may suggest various treatments to replace missing teeth or to restore a damaged tooth. Dental fillings, crowns, implants and prostheses are the most frequent restorations.

Filings remain the number one choice to treat cavities. The bonded restorations are most often used to fill the teeth at the back of the mouth. The composite resin is used to correct various defects caused by cavities, fractures and more. It is generally applied on the visible face of the tooth for aesthetic reasons.

The dental crown is ideal to restore a broken or deformed tooth. It resembles a small hat to completely covers the damaged tooth to strengthen it and improve its aesthetics. It is almost always suggested after root canal treatments to decrease the risk of fracture.

The implant consists of two distinct parts: the screw (or post) at the end of which is built a connector, and the replacement tooth. A variety of implant-supported prostheses are available, such as a dental crown, bridge and complete or partial dentures. This restoration is the closest to natural teeth one can get. It will give you the same confidence, aesthetic and functionality than any natural smile.

A bridge will replace one or more missing teeth. It is permanently affixed to the adjacent teeth using porcelain-covered retainers or metal bands. Once installed, it resembles a natural tooth in all aspects.

Your dentist will guide you through the vast choice of restorations possible and lead you the option that best suits your oral health condition. Never hesitate to ask questions regarding the “how to” of the procedure and what will happen afterward. It will help you in making the right choice.

Dental insurance

Dental insurance

At our dental office, we will be pleased to assist you in better understanding and managing your insurance coverage. Estimates can be given, upon request, to help you know your coverage and plan your treatment.

Please understand that all insurance contracts are between the insurance company, your employer and you, the subscriber. There are limitations to your dental insurance and very rarely do they cover all dental expenses. The treatment recommended by our team of professionals is based on your individual needs, not what your insurance coverage will pay.

After the treatment, we will give you the proper forms and information needed to make a claim for reimbursement. Some insurance companies also accept electronic claim transmission and our helpful office administrators will be happy to file your claim for you.

We also remind you that most dental services are free of charge for children under 10, since they are covered by the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec.

Government dental care coverage for children under 10

Government dental care coverage for children under 10

The Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec covers several dental services for children under 10, including emergency care.

Until the end of his 9 years, a child is entitled to 1 dental examination per year covered by the RAMQ. Fillings, x-rays, and oral surgeries are also covered by the government plan.

Note, however, that cleaning, descaling, and fluoride application are not covered by the RAMQ for children under 10 years of age. In addition, sealants and preventive resin restorations (RPR) are never covered by the RAMQ. You will have to submit these fees to your insurance company and/or pay for them.

Advice For Healthy Gums

Advice For Healthy Gums

As kids, we’re all taught to brush our teeth regularly to keep them healthy. But what about our gums?

The gum is the soft tissue surrounding the neck of teeth which also covers the jawbone. By covering the dental roots, it protects them against microbes. A healthy gum is pink and firm, it attaches around the neck of the teeth and does not bleed when brushing or flossing.

Tips for keeping your gums healthy:

  • Using a soft-bristled brush, gently brush your gums each time you brush your teeth (with a vertical motion from the gum to the tooth).
  • Carefully clean molars and pre-molars (because these teeth are located in the rear portion of the dental arch, they are often neglected, making them more susceptible to plaque buildup).
  • Use dental floss every day to get rid of plaque between your teeth. Make sure the floss reaches just beneath the gumline (be gentle to avoid cutting the gum tissue).
  • Adopt healthy eating habits, focusing on fruits and vegetables and leaving out acidic and over-sweet foods.
  • Avoid tobacco.

Many patients stop using dental floss because of bleeding or pain. However, this is not the solution, as the situation may worsen rather than improve. Bleeding is caused by bacteria found in plaque, causing swelling and bone loss. This is why regular flossing is so important. If pain or bleeding persist after a month, you should go see a dental professional.

In fact, oral health treatments (teeth cleaning) and regular exams are really important to ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy. When left untreated, gum disease can affect the bone that keeps your teeth in place. To avoid complications and, ultimately, the extraction of a tooth, it is best to adopt a preventive approach and seek treatment before problems become worse.

Choosing The Right Toothbrush, Toothpaste & Mouthwash

Choosing The Right Toothbrush, Toothpaste & Mouthwash

Brushing and flossing regularly is important, but you need the right materials to really benefit from your good habits!

The ideal toothbrush

For toothbrushes, we generally advise patients to choose one with soft bristles. If your teeth are very sensitive, a toothbrush with ultra-soft bristles may be prescribed to you. Firm bristles are only suitable for people with tough gums. Generally speaking, synthetic bristles are softer and more hygienic than natural ones, which also tend to be too hard and could damage your gums.

The head of the toothbrush should be relatively small so that it can reach the various surfaces of your teeth. Toothbrush heads range in shape, with some being very simple, others being articulated and others still being quite complex with variable positions and bristle lengths. If you’re not sure what type of toothbrush is best for your mouth, ask your dentist for a recommendation.

Electric toothbrushes are an increasingly popular choice. The best of them have round heads that rotate over your teeth. You may also choose one with a normal head and sonic scan. Electric toothbrushes should be replaced every two years, while manual ones should be thrown away after three months of use. Note that some manufacturers of electric toothbrushes offer models with replaceable head.

So many toothpastes!

First, choose a flavour you like. After all, if you’re not thrilled with the taste, you’ll be much less likely to brush regularly.

Many brands use special phrasing to persuade people to buy their products. But it’s important to know that all types of toothpaste fight cavities, since they all help remove plaque when used properly. They all contain ingredients that are alike and in similar proportions. Most toothpastes contain fluoride, which is known to protect tooth enamel from cavities. Thus, phrasing such as”Fight Cavities” or “Strengthen Enamel” all mean the same.

Even though fluoride is very beneficial for the health of kids’ teeth, you must make sure that little ones don’t swallow toothpaste, or else they can get fluorosis (too much fluoride). This can cause tiny white stains on teeth. For this reason, kids under the age of six should never use more than a pea-size amount of toothpaste.

Antibacterial toothpaste is specially formulated for patients with gingivitis. It contains ingredients that fight against the production of bacteria, and sodium phosphates known to slow down the formation of tartar. If your teeth are sensitive to hot or cold, toothpaste for sensitive teeth can be a great solution to your problem. They are with desensitizing agents whose effects are felt from a few hours to a few days. The benefits are rarely immediate, hence the importance of using the product daily. If you’re wondering whether either of these products might be right for you, ask your dentist for advice first.

We’ve all heard of toothpaste that’s supposed to whiten teeth. However, consumers should be aware that these products can’t yield the same results as whitening treatments. In fact, they are meant to restore the natural colour of the tooth which is naturally not white. They remove certain stains such as wine, coffee or cigarette. Much like the whitening treatments offered in dental offices, whitening toothpaste is made with peroxide, but it only acts as an abrasive to make the enamel shine. To be effective, it would have to stay in contact with the teeth about 20 minutes! This product is not suitable for everyone and some patients (like those with irritable bowel syndrome or pregnant women) should stay away from it altogether.

What about mouthwash?

Finally, if you use mouthwash, make sure you choose one that’s alcohol-free. Otherwise, you’ll find that your mouth gets dry a few hours after use and you may, therefore, suffer from bad breath! Also, look for products featuring the seal of a recognized dental association. And remember that using mouthwash does not replace brushing and flossing.

The Importance Of Scaling

The Importance Of Scaling

Brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day is the best way to get rid of plaque. If it is not completely removed, it hardens and becomes tartar. When this occurs, only a dental professional can remove it.

The role of dental hygienists is to provide therapeutic and preventive care aimed at ensuring optimal oral health. This includes detection, assessment, planning, and prevention to ensure good oral health habits.

After a thorough oral examination, the dental hygienist removes tartar from your teeth with a small, purpose-made metal curette. Once the tartar has been eliminated, the hygienist usually polishes the teeth to clear away any stains visible on the tooth surface using a grainy paste applied to the electric rotary tooth cleaning tool. To also ensure that areas between the teeth have been properly cleaned, the hygienist ends the session with dental floss. The dentist will then perform a complete dental check-up.

Scaling helps prevent certain gum diseases such as gingivitis, but also some problems like chronic halitosis (persistent bad breath). Another reason why professional cleaning should not be overlooked is that despite irreproachable oral hygiene, tartar can accumulate under the gums. If it transforms into advanced gum disease, bacteria can enter the bloodstream and reach other parts of the body.

Since periodontal diseases and untreated gingivitis are the leading cause of tooth loss in patients over 35 years of age, regular cleaning are of utmost importance. Omitting to do so puts your gums at risk for serious problems.

One Tooth At A Time

One Tooth At A Time

On average, the first tooth comes in around the age of six months. In most cases, the 20 primary teeth will have completed a full eruption by the toddler’s third year of age. The two lower central incisors are generally the first to come out.

Every child being different, teeth eruptions may go unnoticed or be accompanied by various discomforts or pains.

The most commonly observed signs during a dental flare are:

  • Child salivates a lot
  • Tendency to chew or carry his hands to his mouth
  • Irritability
  • Red cheeks
  • Slightly swollen or reddened gum or presence of a cyst (small blue bubble)

What we recommend for pain relief:

  • Rub the gums with a finger
  • Offer a clean washcloth soaked in cold water to chew
  • Give a refrigerated teething ring (not frozen since it could cause mouth injuries)

Please avoid the following:

  • Gels
  • Teething biscuits
  • Raw vegetables

These may interfere with swallowing as well as being choking hazards.

In no time should you underestimate a fever. A dental breakthrough does not cause fever. If your child is feverish or if his condition is deteriorating, please consult your doctor immediately.

Did you know?

Primary teeth are different from permanent dentition. The dental enamel is notably thinner, which makes it more prone to tooth decay. Hence the importance of adopting healthy habits of oral hygiene at an early stage.

The Truth About Fluoride

The Truth About Fluoride

Fluoride is a mineral composed of fluorine combined with another element. It can be found in the soil, fresh or salt water, and the foods we eat. Fluoride has several virtues for oral and dental health, including the capacity to prevent tooth decay, and even eradicate developing cavities.

To stop tooth decay from happening on a large scale at minimal cost, the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Committee on Drinking Water is seeking to include an adequate fluorine level in public drinking water. Children who drink water daily and who have a balanced diet benefit from the quantity of fluoride necessary to fight tooth decay. In case of a deficit, your dentist can advise you on the different options available, such as use of fluoridated toothpaste, mouthwash or gel.

However, moderation is always the best policy! A fluoride overdose risks causing dental fluorosis in your child. An appreciable symptom of this disease is the formation of small whitish spots on the teeth. That is why it is always wise to obtain a dental professional’s opinion before changing our habits.

Oral hygiene for toddlers and kids

Oral hygiene for toddlers and kids

Children typically have most of their teeth by the time they are two years old. Children can start brushing their own teeth once they get older and have better coordination. We encourage parents to supervise and assist kids with brushing as needed between the ages of two and six. The goal is to ensure that proper brushing technique is used and that all tooth surfaces are cleaned so that the risk of early childhood tooth decay is limited. Brushing twice a day and flossing are your best allies for maintaining a healthy mouth.

If you would like to use fluoride toothpaste, choose one that does not exceed 500 ppm. Toothpaste with 1000 ppm fluoride may be used for children over the age of six, depending on your dentist’s recommendations.

Parents should pay special attention to teeth located at the back of the mouth, since these often get missed during brushing. Did you know that children between the ages of six and 13 are more prone to cavities in their molars and pre-molars? A dental seal can help prevent bacteria from accumulating in the fissures on the biting surfaces of teeth.

It’s important to teach children good oral hygiene habits from a young age. A healthy mouth leads to better chewing, better overall health and increased self-esteem.

Your Child’s First Visit to the Dentist

Your Child’s First Visit to the Dentist

It is strongly suggested the first visit to the dentist takes place within 6 months following the eruption of the first tooth. This means your child should visit us around one year of age. This being said, it is better to come and meet us when your child is able to cooperate.

During the first appointment, the dentist and dental hygienist will put your child at ease, examine and clean his teeth and review brushing and flossing techniques with you.

It is estimated that 50% of the population is afraid of dentists. It is important for parents not to transmit this fear to their children. Do not minimize your kid’s fears and bear with him. Information and a positive attitude will reassure your child and determine his attitude in the future.

Your collaboration is important before, during and after the visit. The first visit aims to familiarize the child with the environment and create bonds and trust between the dentist and him.

Before the first visit

  • Read your child one of the many books featuring a character who visits the dentist for the first time.
  • Explain what the dentist will do.
  • Go over the steps of the visit the day before the appointment.
  • Never tell a child that going to the dentist will be painless.

During the visit

  • You may be asked to sit in the dentist’s chair and hold your child during the examination.
  • If your child is older, you may be asked to return to the waiting room once the initial contact is made.
  • Listen to the instructions and suggestions you are given on how to care for your child’s teeth.
  • Keep a positive attitude about the consultation at all times.
  • Ask for another appointment in six months.

After the visit

  • Make sure that your child brushes her teeth at least twice a day or after every meal.
  • Floss your child’s teeth once a day.
  • Monitor what your child eats and offer foods that have a low sugar content.
  • Till the age of 10, make sure your child brushes his teeth before bed time.

Postoperative advice

After a tooth extraction

After a tooth extraction

  • Bite on a gauze (pad) for 20 minutes. Put back only if there is blood flow at the site of the surgery. Tasting blood is normal. If the bleeding persists, bite on a wet tea bag for 45 minutes.
  • Important : Do not spit, rinse or drink with a straw for 24 h.
  • Refrain from smoking for a minimum of 12 hours
  • You can apply cold for 20 minutes and 20 minutes apart for the first 24 hours. Subsequently, you can put hot according to the same procedure. This, in order to control possible swelling. Any swelling or discolouration of the tissues is normal.
  • After 24 hours, rinse your mouth several times a day with saline solution (1/2 teaspoon salt in a glass of warm water). Continue for a few days.
  • Avoid consuming hot liquids for today. Otherwise, you can drink normally and eat on the other side if the surgery is limited to one side.
  • In case of discomfort, take the medication prescribed by the dentist.
  • If the pain returns after a few days and you have a bad taste in your mouth, call us since this is a complication of healing. We will relieve the discomfort as soon as possible.
  • Stitches: They will fall in about seven days. If there is discomfort, they can be removed after five days.

CARE FOR ALLODERM GUM GRAFT

CARE FOR ALLODERM GUM GRAFT

Oral care

Brushing and flossing

The day following the procedure, begin by brushing and flossing the areas that were not part of the surgical procedure. AVOID THE SURGICAL SITE until we give you proper instructions during your post-operative visit. A white film may accumulate over the surgical site, this is completely normal.

Mouthwash

Use the prescribed mouthwash twice a day, starting the morning following the procedure, until told to stop by your dentist.

Electric toothbrush

Do not use any electric toothbrush for the 6 weeks following the surgical procedure

Water Pik

Do not use a Water Pik for at least 6 weeks following the surgical procedure.

Nutrition

FOR THE FIRST 24 HOURS

An adequate diet is necessary for proper healing.  After the procedure, your diet must be limited to COLD LIQUIDS.  Dietary supplements are strongly recommended.

To be avoided:

  • Peroxide
  • Alcohol
  • Soda drinks
  • Drinking with a straw

AFTER THE FIRST 24 HOURS FOLLOWING THE SURGICAL PROCEDURE

Slowly introduce soft foods that are easy to chew such as:

Cooked vegetables, Cooked fish, Pasta, Meatloaf

DO NOT SKIP ANY MEALS

Eating regularly will make you feel better, give you more energy, reduce any discomfort and help you heal faster.

Physical activities:

Rest

  • Plan on staying home the day of, as well as the day following the procedure.  While you sleep, elevate your head to reduce inflammation. SLEEP IN A SEMI-UPRIGHT POSITION.
  • AFTER 24 HOURS you can return to your regular schedule, but AVOID heavy housework and all physical activities for 1 WEEK FOLLOWING THE SURGICAL PROCEDURE.

Medication

  • PAIN KILLERS: Take within the hour following the procedure with some milk, fruit juice or water.
  • NEVER TAKE MEDICATION ON AN EMPTY STOMACH
  • NEVER TAKE ADVIL OR ASPIRINE, unless prescribed by your dentist. These medications increase your risk of bleeding.
  • ANTIBIOTICS: Take your medication as indicated, making sure to finish the prescription.

Swelling

It is normal to experience swelling following a periodontal procedure.  To minimize the swelling, we suggest the use of an “ICE PACK”.  Place it on your cheek in 10 minute intervals (10 minutes on, 10 minutes off). Continue to apply it as much as possible during the first 24 hours

Bleeding

A light bleeding is normal during the first days following the surgical procedure.  Should the bleeding become excessive, call us immediately: 450-473-6620

Smokers

DO NOT SMOKE for 3 weeks following the procedure.  Smoking slows the healing process and will affect the results of the intervention.

Stitches

Non-dissolving stitches were used.  They will be removed at your follow-up appointments at 4 and 12 weeks.

 

Our greatest desire is that you are as comfortable as possible following the procedure.  It is important to ask all the questions and to inform us of any changes during the healing period.

Happy healing!

Après une chirurgie dentaire

Après une chirurgie dentaire

À faire

  1. Apres la procédure et avant que les effets de l’anesthésie se dissipent, prenez les médicaments antidouleurs conseillés par votre dentiste.
  2. Il est normal de saigner un peu. Si vous saignez beaucoup, appliquez une pression ferme sur la région touchée avec un gaz pendant 20-30mn.
  3. Pour minimiser l’enflure, nous vous suggérons d’utiliser un  « ICE PACK ». Placez-le sur votre joue en alternance de 10 minutes (10 minutes avec le « Ice Pack », 10 minutes sans). Continuez de l’appliquer le plus possible pour les premières 24 heures suivant l’intervention.
  4. Une nutrition adéquate est essentielle pour une guérison normale.  Ne mangez que des aliments mous et nutritifs que vous pouvez mâcher sans trop de difficulté. (Légumes cuits, poisson cuit, pâtes, pain de viande, yogourt, smoothie…)

NE PAS SAUTER DE REPAS. Si vous vous nourrissez régulièrement, vous vous sentirez mieux, gagnerez des forces, aurez moins d’inconfort et guérirez plus vite. Des suppléments alimentaires pourraient être recommandés (Boost-Ensure). À éviter : Peroxyde, Alcool, Breuvage gazéifié, Boire avec une paille

Prenez le temps de vous détendre et vous reposer. Planifiez rester à la maison le reste de la journée de l’intervention et de la journée suivante.  Lorsque vous dormez, élevez la tête pour diminuer l’enflure.

 

Après 24 heures suivant l’intervention

  1. Le lendemain de l’intervention, commencez par brosser et passer la soie dentaire aux endroits qui n’ont pas subi l’intervention chirurgicale.
  2. Rincez-vous la bouche avec de l’eau tiède salée, plusieurs fois par jour pendant une semaine (1 cuillère à table dans une tasse d’eau tiède).
  3. Prenez vos médicaments tel qu’indiqué.
  4. Vous pouvez retourner à votre horaire régulier, mais éviter le surmenage et toute activité physique pour UNE SEMAINE SUIVANT L’INTERVENTION.

 

À éviter

  • Evitez l’utilisation d’aspirine.
  • Ne toucher pas la plaie et évitez de manger de ce côté.
  • Ne pas cracher et rincer la bouche dans les 24h suivant la procédure.
  • N’utilisez pas de paille pour boire, puisque la succion peut retarder le processus de guérison.
  • Ne fumez pas dans les 24-48h suivant une extraction.
  • Evitez les aliments durs et les boissons alcoolisées dans les 48h suivant la chirurgie.

 

Notre désir le plus cher est que vous soyez le plus confortable possible après votre intervention.

Bonne Guérison!

Instructions postopératoires – greffe gingivale

Instructions postopératoires – greffe gingivale

  • De la douleur postopératoire légère est à prévoir pour 24 à 48 heures. Pour la contrôler efficacement, prendre l’analgésique prescrit selon les recommandations du dentiste.  Ne pas attendre que le malaise devienne sévère.
  • Abstenez-vous de faire des exercices violents pendant la première semaine.
  • Ayez une diète molle ou liquide le jour de l’intervention. Vous retournez graduellement vers une diète normale dans les jours qui suivront.
  • Le matériel qui se trouve autour de vos dents est un pansement parodontal. Il ne faut pas déranger ou enlever ce pansement avant votre visite de contrôle.  S’il tombe de lui-même après quelques jours, faire doublement attention de ne pas déranger la guérison en évitant de manger de ce niveau.
  • Vous pouvez sentir votre palais rugueux et ceci est dû à la colle chirurgicale qui a été appliquée. Cette dernière tombera d’elle-même (elle peut demeurer de quelques jours à quelques semaines).
  • Si vous portez une prothèse complète ou partielle supérieure, vous devez exceptionnellement la garder les 2 premières nuits suivant l’intervention.
  • Votre dentiste vous reverra dans 7 à 10 jours pour contrôler la guérison et pour enlever les points de suture.

Le jour de la chirurgie

  • Ne pas rincer ni cracher pour ne pas déloger les caillots sanguins.
  • Ne pas fumez pendant 24 heures suivant la chirurgie, car la fumée de cigarette retarde et compromet la guérison.
    • Notez que pour les cas de greffes pour couverture de racines (tissu conjonctif), les fumeurs doivent s’abstenir de fumer pendant le premier mois, au risque de voir les chances de succès compromises.
  • Aucun saignement important n’est à prévoir. Cependant, votre salive sera peut-être tachée légèrement de sang pour les 24 premières 24 heures et cela est normal.  Si le saignement est important et incontrôlable malgré la présence du pansement, contactez votre dentiste.
  • Commencez à vous brosser les dents. Ne vous brossez pas les dents au niveau du site de l’intervention

À partir du deuxième jour

  • Rincez votre bouche avec le rince bouche prescrit par votre dentiste.
