Dental implants

Implants make it possible to replace a missing tooth in a way similar to the original one. An implant is an artificial root fixed inside the jaw bone by surgery, on which a crown, partial or complete prosthesis is firmly fixed, 3 to 6 months later. It is made mainly of titanium, because this material bonds very easily to the bone of the human body. The placement of implants is becoming increasingly successful because it provides greater chewing force while restoring excellent aesthetics to the smile as well as a better quality of life.


Dental crowns

A crown is a complete covering of the tooth. It can be made of porcelain, stainless steel, resin, ceramic or gold. A crown is suggested if a tooth has too much damage, whether due to dental fractures, too large fillings to replace, or major cosmetic defects. It can also replace a natural crown or a defective or damaged filling.

At the Charles Trottier Dental Clinic, we have CEREC technology, revolutionary equipment that uses the principle of computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM). It allows you to create artificial crowns, partial or complete, and durable inlays of very high quality.


Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening has been around for many years. At your dentist, you can get fast, effective and safe whitening. A natural tooth is covered in enamel which contains colored pigments that determine the visible color of the tooth, which is normally yellowish white.

However, many causes such as taking certain medications like tetracycline during the period of gestation or tooth development, genetic abnormalities, dental fluorosis, prolonged jaundice in a young child, external trauma such as a fall or a blow to the jaw, can lead to blackening of the affected teeth or reveal grayish, brownish, blackish and even bluish teeth.

Teeth whitening in our dental clinic is done in custom-made trays, made from dental impressions favoring contact of the active product with the teeth while preventing saliva. mixes with it. In addition to being safe, the products used in our dental clinic provide you with better results than those you can buy over the counter. Add shine to your smile with our professional teeth whitening.


Wisdom teeth extraction

Wisdom teeth are the third molars located all the way back in the mouth. Not everyone have wisdom teeth and some peaople will only have a few. These teeth often do not have sufficient space to be properly positioned and therefore functional. Additionally, wisdom teeth can erupt in many different and complex positions, compromising the dental situation and that of surrounding tissues.

When your dentist suspects that wisdom teeth may be responsible for predictable problems like decay, an abscess or a cyst, he or she will not hesitate to recommend extraction. A panoramic x-ray, which allows a complete view of the jaw as well as all structures around the teeth, helps avoid complications during surgery.

Don’t hesitate to ask your dentist questions about your wisdom teeth.


Periodontal treatment

Periodontitis is a disease that attacks the supporting tissue of the tooth. The damage caused by periodontitis is irreversible. This infection results from the accumulation of tartar and bacteria in the gum crevice. Over time, the bacteria release toxins whose aggressiveness manages to separate the gum from the root and even resorb the bone. Over time, the surrounding tissues become so damaged that the strength of the tooth is compromised, potentially leading to mobility and compromising the medium-to-long term prognosis. Several factors such as smoking, poor eating habits, a problem related to the immune system and poor dental hygiene predispose to this infection.

Dental plaque plays a determining role in periodontitis. In fact, the calcium and phosphorus present in saliva adhere to it and form a layer of tartar attached so firmly that only the dental hygienist’s instruments can remove. Periodontal scaling is a simple procedure aimed at removing tartar accumulated under the gums, including deposits invisible to the naked eye.


Dental veneers

The veneer is a covering that partially or entirely hides the visible part of an anterior tooth. It can be used to camouflage certain aesthetic defects such as color, texture, shape, internal stains or even the position of the teeth. The veneer can prove to be an effective, inexpensive and very aesthetic solution. Veneers can be made of resin or porcelain. Transform an ordinary smile into an extraordinary smile with veneers!



Bridges are a multitude of devices aimed at filling an edentulous space formed by one or more porcelain teeth attached to neighboring teeth. Attaching the bridge to neighboring teeth can be done in different ways. The name of the bridge determines how it is attached. So there is:

  • The butterfly bridge, which rarely replaces more than one or two teeth and is attached to the teeth placed on either side of the space to be filled.
  • The fixed bridge, which can replace more than one tooth and which is fixed by the addition of a minimum of 2 crowns on solid teeth called abutment teeth. It is stronger than the butterfly bridge, but less conservative because it involves trimming the abutment teeth.
  • The hybrid bridge, which is fixed with a fin on one side and a crown on the other.
  • The California bridge, which is attached using inlays rather than crowns, making it much more conservative.

Finally, regardless of the bridge chosen, several appointments will be necessary to complete the procedure. All precautions will be taken by your dentist to ensure precise and high-quality work.


The occlusal plate

The occlusal plate is a custom-molded device used to limit damage caused by swearing or grinding your teeth. Bruxism or grinding is an unstable and involuntary movement producing repeated friction of the two jaws against each other, causing pronounced and premature wear of the teeth which over time can become mobile and fall out.

This habit is difficult to control since it most often occurs at night during deep sleep. The causes of bruxism are still poorly understood, however, the stress accumulated during the waking period remains a major element. The occlusal plate, which represents a simple and effective solution against teeth grinding, must be worn every night to ensure its protective role.



An x-ray is a very important tool in dentistry, because without it, 60% of cavities in the mouth would not be diagnosed in time. This is why your dentist will offer them to you on a regular basis. There are several types of dental x-rays such as:

  • The interproximal helps diagnose cavities between the teeth.
  • The periapical is used to detect certain lesions such as an abscess, a cyst or other anomalies located at the tip of the root.
  • Panoramic radiography allows good monitoring of the structures of the jaw, because it gives a complete view of all the tissues making up the lower part of the skull. It is advisable to take a panoramic x-ray every 3 to 5 years.
  • Cephalometrics is used to assess jaw growth.
  • Transcranial is used to study the jaw joint.

When your dentist recommends taking one of these x-rays, it is important to remember that it was suggested for safety reasons. Indeed, without it, many anomalies could not be diagnosed in time.


The removable partial denture

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, there are several solutions you can consider. The removable partial denture, often called partial, is a custom-made device that allows the replacement of missing teeth and is worn during the day only. The prosthesis can be removed at any time, making it easier to maintain. Wearing a partial helps balance chewing forces and promotes the conservation of surrounding tissues while protecting the stability of neighboring teeth. However, it requires a period of adaptation which may vary from one individual to another, because the mouth must get used to this foreign body.

The pit and fissure sealant

Pit and fissure sealant, consists of an organic polymer that adheres to the enamel surface. The aim of this treatment is preventive, because it aims to protect the enamel furrows. A properly applied and maintained sealant can last for many years.

Endodontic therapy is a specialty of dentistry that treats diseases (mainly infections and inflammations) of the internal canal system of the tooth, i.e. the pulp and the periradicular tissues.

Endodontic or root canal treatment, more commonly known as root canal treatment, aims to preserve diseased teeth in such a way as to avoid implants or prostheses.

It consists of removing the pulp or infected or inflamed root canals from a necrotic tooth while preserving it.

Symptoms of possible endodontic treatment:

  • An abscess inside the tooth or at the root tips or on the gums (swelling and tenderness)
  • Caries that has reached the dental pulp (sensitivity to hot and cold and severe toothache)
  • A dental injury or trauma

The various stages of endodontic treatment:

  • A clinical examination with X-ray of the diseased tooth is performed
  • Under local anesthesia, the endodontist removes infected pulp and nerve tissue as well as bacteria
  • It deeply and thoroughly cleans the inside of the tooth
  • The cavity is filled and sealed with a special dental material
  • A final filling will be made to cover the cavity on the tooth surface

Following this endodontic treatment, the dentist can place a crown on the treated tooth to protect it, prevent it from breaking and fully restore its function.


Gingival grafting, also known as gum grafting, is used to correct the loosening of the roots of the tooth resulting from gingival recession.
Gingival grafts consist of covering the exposed and bare roots of the teeth with graft tissue in order to restore strong gums and prevent any future loosening.
