Prevention and treatment of tooth decay
Detecting tooth decay with lasers
We use sophisticated laser technology to better detect all forms of tooth decay so that you can get treatment early on, before tooth decay takes hold.
The repair and filling of cavities
We have as our mission to ensure that our elimination of tooth decay is as pain-free as possible. With this in mind, and in certain situations, we suggest conscious sedation, which has an amnesiac effect: You will have the impression that the procedure is extremely brief and pain-free. Once the procedure is over, you will return to 100% awareness. Unlike other sedatives, such as Ativan, you don’t need to be accompanied to your appointment and you’ll be able to function as usual during the rest of the day.
Root canal treatment
When a cavity is really deep and touches a nerve, the dentist will need to perform a root canal in order to prevent infection. When bacteria (germs) invade the nerve area, an abscess forms and the tooth must be rendered inert (dead). A tooth that has received a root canal treatment becomes fragile and risks cracking. Therefore, it is usually advisable to restore the tooth’s strength with a post and crown.
Dental care for children
Because our young friends should learn good dental hygiene as early as possible, we encourage them to get to know their dentist and learn the value of good dental care. To keep them entertained and relaxed while waiting for an appointment, we have set aside a special play area in our waiting room.
Wisdom tooth removal
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the teeth located in the very back of the mouth and they are usually the last teeth to come in . . . if they even do! When these teeth poorly positioned or crowded, we often recommend that they be removed. Various precautions are taken so that the surgery and recovery are as pain-free as possible.
- Mouth guards for teeth grinding, sport protection, and snoring
- Crowns (or caps), bridges and porcelain restorations
