Dental cleaning
Dental cleaning Montreal

Definition

During your dental cleaning, the hygienist proceeds to:

  1. Scaling (removal of plaque and tartar)
  2. Polishing (removal of stain)
  3. Fluoride application
Frequency

Depending on the amount of tartar and plaque accumulated, it varies between every:

  1. 3 months
  2. 4 months
  3. 6 months
  4. 12 months
Additional treatment

When tartar builds up deep below the gum, a curettage (deep cleaning) is required. This treatment aims to remove tartar and necrotic and inflamed gum so that it can regenerate. Curettage is performed under local anesthesia.

Composite restoration
Composite restoration Montreal

The composite restoration is a white filling bonded to your teeth.

Indications

A composite restoration is used to repair anterior and posterior teeth.

Limitations

When a composite restoration is too extensive, a porcelain crown is recommended to reduce the risk of tooth fracture. Sometimes, the tooth is no longer repairable following such a fracture.

Crown
Crown Montreal

Definition

A crown is a porcelain tooth that covers a natural tooth. It reduces the risk of fracture when the tooth is fragile.

Limitations

The porcelain crown can extend the life of a tooth. Unfortunately, it sometimes happens that the natural tooth supporting the porcelain crown breaks at the gum level, which leads to the extraction of the tooth.

Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment Montreal

Definition

A root canal treatment is to devitalize the tooth. The inside of the tooth is emptied, cleaned and filled to prevent bacteria from returning to the tooth. We could compare the tooth having a root canal to an Easter egg. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a surgery and the roots are not cut.

Postoperative instructions
  1. You can eat and drink right after a root canal treatment. Avoid biting yourself because of the numbness caused by the anesthesia.
  2. A crown is recommended following most root canal treatments to prevent the tooth from fracturing.
  3. A mild sensitivity up to severe pain may occur following the root canal treatment. Take painkillers as needed. If you have a fever or swelling, contact your dentist as soon as possible.
  4. Despite the high chances of success, root canal treatment may fail. It is sometimes possible to perform a retreatment or an apicoectomy to save the tooth.
