Other Treatment and Care Provided:
Oral health is often overlooked, but is just as important as other aspects of your health. To help maintain it, we recommend regular follow ups, How often you should visit will vary depending on your recommended treatments. A regular visit allows you to get a professional diagnosis of the general state of your oral health.
During your appointment, a gentle and smiling dental hygienist will be responsible for your scaling and polishing. She will take the time to give you the best instructions and personalized advice for maintaining good oral hygiene. You will get digital x-rays taken during your visit. Finally, our dentist will examine your mouth to determine whether restorations (fillings, etc.) are necessary and to establish any diagnoses (gingivitis, oral cancer, etc.).
Dental Care for Kids
The Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ) covers an annual examination for children under 10 years of age. Basic restorations, extractions and other care are also covered by the RAMQ. Do not hesitate to go directly to their website for details on what is covered.
When Should You Arrange Your Child’s First Dentist Appointment?
We recommend a first visit to the dentist at age 2. A first cleaning and the application of fluoride can also take place at age 3, depending on the child’s willingness. It is with great pleasure that we welcome your little ones and offer them quality, caring service.
Treatment for Halitosis (Bad Breath)
There can be several different causes for bad breath. Taking certain medications, digestive problems, health problems, dry mouth, gum disease and untreated tooth decay are all factors that can contribute to bad breath. Regular consultation and follow-up with your health care professional will help identify the causes and determine the actions needed to restore fresh breath.
Treatment for Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)
One side effect of teeth grinding is premature wear on your teeth. Bruxism can also cause tooth sensitivity, temporomandibular joint pain and recurrent headaches. The dentist will take care of your bruxism problem and if necessary will advise you to wear a mouth guard known as an occlusal splint. Custom designed to fit the morphology of your teeth, the splint will make you more comfortable and will help minimize the consequences of your bruxism.
