General Dentistry

Dental checkup:

  • During a dental checkup, we examine: 
  • The temporomandibular joint
  • The teeth to detect any cavities, defective restorations and other anomalies
  • The soft tissues to check for oral cancers and gum disease
  • X-rays to identify any cavities, cysts, bone loss, impacted teeth and other anomalies

 

Cleaning:

During a cleaning, the hygienist removes plaque and tartar deposits on the teeth and above the gum line.

 

Gum therapy:

Tartar can sometimes build up below the gum line, irritating the gums and causing bleeding and inflammation. Left untreated, tartar can cause the teeth to detach from the gums, leading to possible bone loss and loose teeth.

 

Tooth decay:

In the first stage of tooth decay, the enamel becomes demineralized and softens. In more advanced stages, a cavity will form in the tooth. Tooth decay is often painless until it reaches an advanced stage. 

 

Endodontics:

In some deep cavities, the decay can reach the nerve tissue. As a result, the tooth can become infected and necrotic. A root canal involves disinfecting and cleaning out debris (including infected nerve tissue) from the pulp chamber.

 

CBCT scans:

We use 3D imaging as a diagnostic tool to take a three-dimensional look at the jaw bones so we can plan the placement of implants and detect anomalies that would otherwise be difficult to assess on a panoramic X-ray.

 

Gum grafts:

A gum graft is a procedure to cover an exposed root or reinforce thinning gum tissue due to gum recession.

 

Surgery and wisdom tooth extraction:

Wisdom teeth are extracted when they don’t have room to grow properly. They may be more difficult to remove according to their position (some could be partially or completely encased in tissue or bone).

Pediatric Denstistry

THE FIRST VISIT

We recommend taking your child to the dentist as soon as they cut their first tooth. At their first appointment, your child will get familiar with the dentist’s office, laying the foundations for a positive relationship with the dentist. Parents also learn about how to take care of their child’s teeth and which foods promote healthy teeth.

Children become more cooperative with each visit, making it easier to have their teeth cleaned at a younger age.

 

PREPARING FOR YOUR FIRST VISIT

  • Don’t tell your child that it will hurt; this will just scare them.
  • Read them picture books about going to the dentist to familiarize them with the dentist’s office.       

 

ANXIOUS CHILDREN

Sometimes, children are anxious or agitated at their first visit to the dentist. At Elna Carrefour Dentaire, we offer nitrous oxide (commonly referred to as “laughing gas”) to help anxious children relax. Using nitrous oxide for conscious sedation helps children stay calm, so the appointment can go smoothly.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Invisalign 

Invisalign is a type of invisible orthodontics that realigns crooked teeth using clear wearable aligners.

 

Crowns and bridges

  • Crowns reinforce teeth weakened by tooth decay, fillings or root canals. They protect the teeth and help them resist pressure. Plus, they can correct discoloured, malformed or malpositioned teeth.

  • Before there were implants, bridges were considered the best way to replace missing teeth. This is still an effective method today. The bridge replacing the missing tooth is bonded to crowns placed on the adjacent teeth. ​

Veneers

  • Veneers are shells made from a thin layer of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of the front teeth. Porcelain veneers look very natural. Specially made in a dental lab, veneers correct discoloured, malpositioned or malformed teeth, transforming your smile instantly.
  • Composite veneers are an economical alternative to porcelain and often require a more conservative procedure. They are made by the dentist at chairside without any lab work. Composite veneers are as beautiful as porcelain.​​

 

Implantology

Dental implants are a great way to replace one or more missing teeth. The implant is done in two steps. The first step is a surgical procedure where the dentist painlessly inserts a titanium screw to act as a replacement root for the tooth. In the second step, or prosthetic phase, the dentist attaches a crown to the titanium implant to create a replacement tooth. Implants are very durable and provide an excellent alternative to permanent tooth replacement options.
