At What Age Should a Child Have Their First Appointment with the Dentist?

It is strongly recommended that you bring your child to the dentist before one year old for the first dental appointment, or earlier if you think there is a problem.

Should We Wait Until All of the Child's Teeth Have Come in Before Starting Orthodontic Treatment?

No, because often malocclusion (inadequacy between the jaws and the teeth) is related to a problem of jaw growth. Treatments may begin when the child is 7 years old.

I Have Migraines. Can They Be Related to a Dental Problem?

Migraines can be triggered by bruxism (grinding of the teeth). An oral exam can confirm this. The dentist can then propose appropriate treatments that can relieve headaches.

Why Should the Dentist Know My Condition and What Medications I Am Taking?

It is important to talk to your dentist about your health problems, allergies and medications so that he will be able to treat you properly and safely. This prevents allergic reactions, adequately treats oral side effects caused by drugs and prevents complications during dental procedures. The dentist can also contact your doctor if necessary.

At What Age Can My Child Use Fluoride Toothpaste?

A child can use fluoride toothpaste when they are able to spit the excess, at about 6 years old.

Why do My Gums Bleed During Pregnancy?

Gingivitis is caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy. If left untreated, these symptoms may progress to periodontal disease. Follow-up and cleaning is recommended in the first and third trimesters of pregnancy.

Why Are My Teeth More Sensitive Now that I Started My Bleaching Treatment?

The degree of sensitivity during bleaching may vary from person to person and will go away once the bleaching is complete. Tooth sensitivity and gum irritation are the most frequent side effects of teeth whitening. A consultation with the dentist is always suggested before starting treatment to minimize these undesirable symptoms.

Should I Use a Manual or Electric Toothbrush?

A rechargeable electric brush with a replaceable head cleans more efficiently thanks to its oscillating and pulsating movements. On the other hand, electric brushes are not recommended for patients who already have gum recession problems, nor are they recommended for young children. For these patients, the Clinic staff teaches good techniques for manual brushing.

Should I Opt to Repair or Extract My Tooth?

Extraction is often inevitable if the tooth is irreparable. On the other hand, a missing tooth causes the migration of neighboring teeth, unbalanced occlusion (closing) of the teeth, problems with chewing and spaces between the teeth. Over time, if left untreated, these problems become more complicated and costly to correct. A tooth can be repaired by your dentist or replaced with an implant, a fixed bridge or a removable denture.
