Q?

What’s the best age to remove my wisdom teeth?

A.

Wisdom teeth, or the 3rd molars, begin their eruption in the mouth between the ages of 17 and 21. But since they are the last teeth to erupt, they often remain included in the bone, either completely or partially, for lack of space. That said, it is not uncommon to extract these teeth before the age of 17 if your x-rays show the risks of developing pathologies. Click here for more information.

Q?

When should I bring my child for his first dental appointment?

A.

The answer is simple but yet surprises most parents. The Ordre des pédodontistes du Québec recommends bringing children for their first dental examination as soon as the first baby tooth appears in the mouth, around 6 months old! The main purpose of this visit is to answer your questions as parents and to equip you with advice on oral hygiene practices and food habits. At our clinic, much emphasis is placed on prevention. It is for this reason, we strongly encouraged you to introduce your child to the dental environment at a young age.

Q?

I have to remove my teeth of wisdom. I am afraid of the pain!

A.

The  extraction of wisdom teeth is stressful for most people, but don't worry. It is done under local anesthesia which eliminates pain during the procedure. Analgesics are also prescribed to control discomfort after the operation.

If your level of anxiety is high, we provide oral sedatives before your appointment. Our ultimate goal is to make your experience with us relaxing and simple.

Q?

I heard that teeth whitening can make them fragile. Is this true?

A.

False. The whitening products open the pores of the teeth in order to dislodge the debris. Increased sensitivity may result during the process, but this is only temporary. Don't be concerned, the structural integrity of the enamel is in no way compromised. Your teeth become simply more white and appear more refreshed. See our photo album for real cases.
