TREATMENTS AND TECHNOLOGIES
At the Boucherville Dental & Implantology Centre, we have all the latest technologies to provide you with the best possible care.
Among other devices, we have digital radiography, the intraoral camera and the DIAGNOdent (cavity detector and digital impressions without paste inside the mouth).
We are also equipped with digital dental imaging equipment that allows us to fit zircon or all-ceramic crowns in one single appointment.
Physical defects, even minor ones, can be a great source of complexes in a society where appearance is highly valued. Straight, white teeth are part of this ideal of beauty and can provide greater self-confidence. Aesthetic dentistry, which includes orthodontics and teeth whitening, is becoming increasingly popular. Your dentist can help you regain a healthy and visually harmonious set of teeth.
The gum is a soft tissue in the mouth that covers the alveolar bone (the bone that supports the teeth) and surrounds the base of the teeth to hold them in place.
Since it plays a central role in holding the teeth in place, it is important to take care of it and prevent diseases that affect it.
Two types of gums are present in the mouth: the attached gum, which supports the teeth, and the free mucosa.
The discipline dedicated to the placement of dental implants is called implantology. Implants help to restore a beautiful smile, but also a better quality of life. The professionals who can perform these treatments are highly trained to ensure your comfort and the durability of your treatments.
Bruxism is characterized by teeth grinding or clenching while no swallowing, chewing or speaking movements are made. Since this grinding and clenching serves no specific purpose, bruxism is defined as a parafunction. This grinding, in addition to being unpleasant for the bruxer, can cause muscle pain and damage the teeth.
To correct misalignments and reposition the jaw and teeth, orthodontic treatment may be necessary to promote a better bite. One of the alternatives to braces is Invisalign technology, which can correct the alignment of teeth. This recent technology is gaining popularity due to its comfort, discretion and convenience.
CERAMIC OR ZIRCON RESTORATIONS IN ONE APPOINTMENT
The tooth is divided into two parts: the crown and the root. The crown is normally the visible part of the tooth above the gum. It is the part that is exposed to food and other external elements.
The crown is covered with enamel and protects the more sensitive parts of the tooth (dentine and pulp) from elements such as food, air, saliva, bacteria and microbes. Due to its exposure, it can suffer various damages.
Do you suffer from snoring, chronic fatigue or difficulty concentrating? These signs could be linked to sleep apnea. Do you have a CPAP machine that you can’t tolerate anymore? If left untreated, sleep apnea can have harmful consequences on your health and negative implications on your daily routine.
