Dental Services

We are pleased that you choose to inquire about the dental services we offer, our approach to dental care and office philosophy. One of the things you'll notice about us at your first visit is that we will provide you with clear and complete explanations about every aspect of your dental health.

You will find that our approach to dental care aims for optimal dental health, comfort and satisfied patients. Your health goals will govern our discussions and you will be empowered to impact your own dental health through your own choices and actions.

Rather than fixing isolated problems you can expect us to look at the whole mouth and all the dynamics involved that may have resulted in the current condition. That's because we're convinced that informed decisions are better decisions; and better decisions mean better long-term health.

Independently of your age and dental condition, we will propose the services you need to obtain and maintain an optimal level of dental health.

We are proud to offer you the latest advances and technologies in the following services:

Teeth Whitening Systems

The most cost effective way to get your glamour smile is the DayWhite from Philips, the manufacturers of ZOOM whitening Systems. The Philips Home Whitening gel eliminates the discolorations in the enamel of your teeth. The discolorations due to age, coffee, red wine, cigarettes, some medications are easily removed with the Philips Home Whitening Systems.

The Science Speaks for Itself

ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate) is a revolutionary technology that is licensed exclusively to Philips Oral Healthcare in the field of professional whitening by the ADA Foundation. Whitening with ACP means stronger teeth, greater comfort and better results for your patients- and optimal compliance by your patients.

Rebuild Enamel

The deposition of hydroxyapatite onto teeth rebuilds enamel and restores luster through the remineralization process. Preliminary research shows that remineralization can both strengthen teeth and reduce the susceptibility of enamel to in vitro lesion initiation and progression.

Reduce Sensitivity

Clinical tests comparing NiteWhite ACP with a NiteWhite formula containing no ACP showed that 30% of patients who used NiteWhite with ACP experienced less sensitivity, with twice as many patients experiencing zero sensitivity. NiteWhite ACP and DayWhite ACP are the first whiteners to combine ACP and the proven effectiveness of potassium nitrate to create a new standard for patient comfort in take-home whitening.

Improve Appearance

Tooth whiteners with ACP also improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth by restoring enamel luster to create a smoother, glossier appearance. Studies also show the patients who used a tooth whitener with ACP experienced less fadeback to their original tooth color after six months.

How ACP Works

ACP, contained in NiteWhite ACP and DayWhite ACP, is applied to the teeth during a whitening treatment. (1)

ACP clusters fill open dentinal tubules, reducing sensitivity. (2)

ACP crystallizes into a new coating of hydroxyapatite, rebuilding enamel and filling surface defects on the teeth to add luster. (3)

Preventative Care and Hygiene,

The key to maintaining a healthy mouth is to practice good homecare and have regular dental visits every six months.

The professional dental cleaning reinforces the home-care oral health regimen of brushing and flossing and gives the dentist an opportunity to locate areas in the mouth that may need special attention.

People who regularly practice good oral hygiene at home with proper brushing and flossing techniques typically do not experience discomfort during a cleaning. However, those who have neglected their oral hygiene habits may experience some discomfort or sensitivity during a dental cleaning. The dentist can use a topical anesthetic before the cleaning to alleviate any discomfort.

During a dental cleaning, you’ll receive diagnostic and preventive services from your dentist as well as any needed educational information.

Diagnostic services may include:

  • Reviewing and updating medical history, including information about heart problems, pregnancy, diabetes and medications, which may have an impact on your oral health
  • Oral cancer examination and screening
  • Evaluation of gum tissue
  • Checking biting, chewing and swallowing patterns
  • X-rays or examination of teeth to detect decay
  • Referral to specialists for specific treatment

Preventive services may include:

  • Removal of plaque and tartar
  • Stain removal
  • Fluoride application
  • Sealants (for children)
  • Polishing teeth, including fillings and crowns

Educational services may include:

  • Tooth brushing and flossing instructions
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Recommendations for future treatment: when to return for follow-up hygiene treatment, periodontal (gum) concerns or restorative options
  • Evaluation of self-care effectiveness
  • Tobacco-cessation counseling

Many people wonder if their regular dental visits are that important. What do you think?..

Restorations & Metal Free Fillings,

Need a filling? You’re not alone. But if it’s your first time getting a cavity treated, welcome to the club!

The substance of your filling depends on the size and location of the cavity, and should not be of a financial consideration. Types of fillings also depend on the extent of the decay. If the cavity is restricted to the inner grooves of the tooth, an inlay may be used. For cavities that cover the chewing surface of the tooth, including a cusp (pointy tip), an onlay is appropriate.

While such fillings are ideal for small cavities, larger areas of decay may require a crown, which covers the entire tooth. This strategy is a common way of repairing a broken or extremely weak tooth.

Most people recognize dental amalgams as silver fillings, but they’re actually a mixture of mercury, silver, tin and copper. Mercury, which makes up about 50% of the compound, is a toxic metal, some people wonder if it’s safe for dental use. Elemental metallic mercury, the type used in amalgam fillings, has been extensively studied by dentists, scientists and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over the past 100 years. Multiple studies have claimed its safety, however throwing a filling in a river or a lake it is illegal.

Resin composite fillings are made of ceramic and plastic compounds that mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Thanks to technological advances, dentists and patients today can choose resin-based composite fillings for any region in mouth. Newer materials are eco-friendly, gentler on the tooth structure, easier to use and tend to be stronger making them a good choice for the whole mouth.

Porcelain Crowns, Bridges & Veneers,

With new minimally invasive techniques and painless treatments, All Porcelain Crowns and Veneers are now readily accessible for almost anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their teeth.

A porcelain veneer is essentially a conservative crown. It covers part or all the biting surface, as well as the visible part of the tooth.

The porcelain is an extremely durable material with a color, translucence and texture that is similar to tooth enamel. It is not susceptible to decay and resists staining while maintaining a natural appearance.

Porcelain Veneers can effectively:

  • whiten teeth,
  • close diastemas (gaps between the teeth),
  • lengthen and reshape teeth,
  • repair chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth,
  • cover stains and discolorations,

to provide desired smile and occlusion (bite).

Will it be obvious I have had Porcelain Veneers placed on my teeth?

This depends on how radical the changes are, but usually people who know you well will notice the improvement to your smile. Others will notice how good you now look, but often find it hard to tell why. And those who have never met you before will just think you have a Great Smile!

Do I have to take special care or change eating habits after having Porcelain Veneers placed on my teeth?

Porcelain veneers and crowns don't stain and are designed to take as much wear as your natural teeth. But you should never use your teeth as tools - such as cracking nuts or opening bottles. Clients should follow a normal oral hygiene routine and visit the dentist for regular checkup and cleaning appointments, as we all should do, to maximise longevity of their own teeth and any new restorations alike.

Gum Grafts and Gum Treatment,

Gum Grafts

Many people don't even notice that their gums have receded, because it is a gradual process. However, over time, an exposed tooth root can not only look ugly, but can cause tooth sensitivity, especially when eating cold or hot foods. Eventually, gum recession, if not treated, can cause tooth loss. To repair the damage and prevent further dental problems, a gum tissue graft may be needed.

Gum recession is the process in which the tissue that surrounds the teeth pulls away from a tooth, exposing more of the tooth or the tooth's root. This can cause damage to supporting bone. Gum recession is a common dental problem; it affects around 4% to 12% of adults and often goes unnoticed until it becomes more severe.

Gum surgery sounds worse than it is. A gum graft may be necessary to protect your teeth from the damaging effects of gum recession, or you may choose to have one to improve the appearance of your smile.

Gum treatment

Your bone and gum tissue should fit snugly around your teeth like a turtleneck around your neck. When you have periodontal disease, this supporting tissue and bone is destroyed, forming "pockets" around the teeth.

Over time, these pockets become deeper, providing a larger space for bacteria to live. As bacteria develop around the teeth, they can accumulate and advance under the gum tissue. These deep pockets collect even more bacteria, resulting in further bone and tissue loss. Eventually, if too much bone is lost, the teeth will need to be extracted.

Root planing is a careful deep cleaning of the root surfaces to remove plaque and calculus [tartar] from deep periodontal pockets and to smooth the tooth root to remove bacterial toxins. Root planing is often followed by adjunctive therapy such as local delivery antimicrobials and host modulation, as needed on a case-by-case basis.

Most dentists would agree that after root planing, some patients do not require any further active treatment. However, the majority of patients will require ongoing maintenance therapy to sustain health.

Lumineers,

Lumineers are Designed to Deliver a Beautiful Result with a Simple, Painless Process!

Lumineers are digitally designed to be ultra-thin (about as thin as a contact lens), so they can be applied seamlessly over your teeth to deliver a natural looking smile. Traditional veneers are generally thicker, and thus require more tooth preparation.

The minimally invasive Lumineers technique typically eliminates the need for shots or temporaries, so while you wait for your custom-made Lumineers, you’ll look great and feel great. While many dentists offer veneers, not all dentists have been trained to deliver the signature benefits of Lumineers.

Lumineers Solve a Variety of Dental Problems to Give You the Perfect Smile in Just 2 Easy Visits.

Whether your teeth are discolored or chipped, or moderately crooked, Lumineers is likely a perfect solution for you. Come in for a consultation to see if you might be a candidate for treatment.

Only a Certified Lumineers Dentist can truly determine if you are a candidate for Lumineers.

Snap-On Smile,

What is Snap-On Smile?

Snap-On Smile is a patented, easy and painless way to obtain a beautiful smile. Snap-On Smile’s unique, proprietary formula of hi-tech dental resin make it very thin yet extremely strong. It fits right over your own teeth to give you a beautiful, natural looking smile—even if you have stains, chips, gaps or missing teeth.

For many people, Snap-On Smile can be life changing. It gives back the confidence to smile. Thousands of people worldwide have already experienced the unique benefits of Snap-On Smile.

Snap-On Smile is for just about everyone!

Snap-On Smile is a temporary, but affordable and life-changing solution for people of all ages. Getting a Snap-On Smile simply requires two, short, painless visits with no drilling, no shots and no change in tooth structure.

It is an excellent choice for:

  • Gaps, crooked, stained or missing teeth
  • Those who are not candidates for bridges or implants
  • Anyone who would like a Hollywood smile without the expense and discomfort of complex and invasive dental procedures
  • Anyone who has an old-fashioned removable partial denture and wants a beautiful, more comfortable alternative
Full Mouth Reconstruction.

Reconstructive dentistry refers to the set of procedures designed to:

  • replace missing teeth,
  • repair damaged teeth,
  • correct improperly seated jaw joints and faulty bites,
  • address jawbone and gum damage,
  • replace worn-out dental work,
  • and, in some cases, treat diseases of the mouth.

Each of these reconstructive procedures may be performed independently, but when multiple oral health problems exist, full mouth reconstruction may be advised. Also known as full mouth restoration, full mouth reconstruction can include any combination of the following:

  • Restorative dental treatments: dental crowns, bridges, fillings, inlays, and onlays
  • Implant dentistry: dental implants to replace missing teeth, replicating them from root to crown
  • Cosmetic dentistry: porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, dental bonding, and gums re-contouring
  • Neuromuscular dentistry/T.M.D. treatment: correction of problems involving the bite and the temporomandibular joints (T.M.J.)
  • Orthodontics: Invisalign, traditional metal braces, spacers maintainers, expanders, and retainers
  • Oral surgery: root canal therapy, soft and hard tissue grafting, and tooth extractions

In addition to having a healthy and beautiful smile, the mouth must function properly. The ability to speak without a "whistle", and chewing food without your teeth clunking together cannot be compromised. If your functional needs are not met you will regret having had any work done on your mouth.

When the functional and cosmetic needs are met the results are spectacular. This also results in the fastest treatment time because the dental work does not need to be redone.

Invisalign® Orthodontics
Science in every smile

Orthodontic treatments without metal wires or brackets, using invisible and removable aligners are now available.

Dr. Christine Hindie got certified with Invisalign in 2002, and since 2008 she earns every year the designation Invisalign® Preferred Provider Premier by being one of the nation's most experienced providers (top 5% among dentists and orthodontists in North America) of this comfortable, nearly invisible alternative to metal braces for Adults and Teenagers.

Invisalign® can help you get the great smile you have always wanted because it’s:

  • Invisible, nobody can suspect that you are aligning your teeth. You will feel less embarrassment and more confidence at school, at your work place and in all the daily activities.
  • Removable, for a good hygiene. You can thus eat and drink what you want during the treatment, brush your teeth and pass the dental floss normally, which helps to prevent dental decay and gingival diseases.
  • Comfortable, no metal to irritate your mouth during the treatment. Some orthodontic appliances, as the brackets and metallic wires, can cause a temporary gum inflammation (usually reversible with the removal of the appliance).
  • Faster, experience has shown that Invisalign® is usually 20% faster then traditional braces. Treatment's lenght depends upon your particular condition and in average it takes 14 month to be completed.

Cosmetic Dentistry
Smile - Find The Beauty Within

What is a Beautiful Smile?

Between an ordinary smile and an extraordinary smile there is only one small extra which makes all the difference. It is generally accepted that an extraordinary smile has:

  • straight teeth, not crocked.
  • aligned teeth, no spaces.
  • white teeth, not stained or discolored.
  • only the upper teeth visible when we smile, not the gums.
  • the incisal edge of the upper teeth follows the lower lip line.

With today’s dental procedures (implants, crowns, bridges and porcelain veneers), it has never been easier to attain a beautiful, healthy smile. A white smile with straight teeth; an Exquisite Smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry - Aesthetic Dentistry, what's the Difference?

We often hear and talk about aesthetic and cosmetic dental care without lending too much attention to what each term represents.

  • Aesthetic Dental Care is the type of treatment which we need and we let us receive following a bad condition and/or faulty function which must be corrected, and the result is more than just Functional, it is also Aesthetic.
  • Cosmetic Dental Care is the type of treatment which we do not always need but want and we let us receive following a desire to improve the appearance of our smile.

Neuromuscular Occlusion
The foundation of a healthy smile

Neuromuscular Dentistry (N.M.D.) is the science which objectively measures the functions affected by occlusion and makes it possible to evaluate the complex relations which exist between the teeth, the temporo-mandibular joints and the masticator muscles. The resulting evaluation allows us to determine the occlusion corresponding to the optimal relation between the mandible and the skull, the neuromuscular occlusion.

Is Neuromuscular Dentistry (N.M.D.) for You?

If you consider orthodontic or reconstructive dental procedures including aesthetic and cosmetic procedures the neuromuscular techniques will be able to offer a positive impact on the longevity of the treatments of oral rehabilitation. If you suffer from headaches or chronic neck pain or any of the T.M.D. symptoms mentioned in the Pain Clinic page, they will be able to offer the relief that other medical disciplines did not succeed to give you.

There are always options to consider when choosing a dental treatment. The neuromuscular analysis offers us an image of ensemble, of what is behind the appearance of your smile, tackling questions which affect your health and your global wellbeing.

Pain Clinic
Understanding the tmj joints

We all have the ability to function in an accommodative pathologic position. When the pathologic position exceeds our accommodative capacity, we begin to complain of Pain, Discomfort or Aesthetics.

Although the large majority of people suffer from the diseases of the Temporo-Mandibular Joint (T.M.J.), most do not associate their pain and/or symptoms to a "malocclusion" and prefer to blame the stress, the children at home or their work environment.

Pin-pointing the Pain!

The understanding of pain is complicated mostly by the fact that the same painful stimulus may be perceived differently by different people, and differently by the same people at different times. The person's reaction to the circumstances surrounding the pain experience and the interpretation of the pain meaning may also be different.

Pain is personal, private and unique, but there is often a demand from clinicians that pain and pain situations be objective, public and reproducible.

New Technology
Computerized Mandibular Scanning

The Objectif: The Right Diagnostic leads to the Best Treatment.

Science and clinical experience have shown that a stable occlusal foundation in which muscles, joints and teeth all work together efficiently plays a crucial role in the positive outcome of all dental procedures.

For optimal diagnosis and therapy, the clinician must be able to measure physiologic phenomena that indicate the state of occlusal function and its effect on both masticatory muscles and temporo-mandibular joints.

The patented K7 C.M.S. tracks mandibular motion in three dimensions and also displays mandibular torque.

The scans obtained are invaluable three dimensional representations of mandibular rest, the relaxed neuromuscular path of closure, centric occlusion, habitual path of closure and protrusive guidance.

The K7 Evaluation System from Myotronics-Noromed Inc., allows Dr. Christine Hindie's team to obtain necessary data to objectively measure occlusal function three dimensionally, in order to assist her in providing optimal diagnosis and treatment of all major dental cases - aesthetic, cosmetic, restorative, orthodontics and Temporo-mandibular Disorders.

Indépendamment de votre âge et votre état dentaire, nous vous proposerons les services nécessaires à l'obtention et au maintien d'un niveau de santé dentaire optimal.

Nous sommes fiers d'utiliser les dernières techniques et technologies dans les services suivants:

Blanchiment des Dents

La manière la plus rapide d'obtenir votre sourire de charme est le procédé de blanchiment des dents DayWhite de Philips, le manufacturier de Système de Blanchiment des dents ZOOM. Le gel blanchissant de Philips Home Whitening Systems élimine les discolorations dans l'émail de vos dents. Les taches et décolorations dûes à l'âge, au café, au vin rouge, à la cigarettes et à quelques médicaments sont habituellement enlevées facilement grâce au système de blanchiment des dents de Philips.

Les principes scientifiques parlent d’eux-mêmes

Le PCA (phosphate de calcium amorphe) représente une technologie révolutionnaire qui fait l’objet d’une licence exclusive accordée à Philips Oral Healthcare, dans le domaine du blanchiment professionnel, par la ADA Foundation. Le blanchiment au PCA donne des dents plus solides, un confort accru et de meilleurs résultats pour vos patients, ainsi qu’une conformité optimale de leur part.

Reconstruire l'énamel des dents

Le dépôt d’hydroxyapatite sur la dent reconstruit l’émail et lui rend son lustre par le processus de reminéralisation. Les recherches préliminaires démontrent que la reminéralisation peut à la fois consolider la dent et réduire la susceptibilité de l’émail à la formation et à la progression de lésions in vitro.

Rèduire la sensibilitè

Des tests cliniques comparant NiteWhite ACP (avec PCA) à une formule NiteWhite sans PCA ont démontré que 30 % des patients qui utilisaient NiteWhite avec PCA ont éprouvé moins de sensibilité, et deux fois plus de patients n’ont éprouvé aucune sensibilité. NiteWhite ACP et DayWhite ACP sont les premier produits de blanchiment à combiner le PCA et l’efficacité éprouvée du nitrate de potassium, créant ainsi une nouvelle norme de confort pour le patient dans les produits de blanchiment à la maison.

Améliorer l’apparence

Le blanchiment des dents au PCA améliore aussi l’apparence cosmétique des dents en restaurant le lustre de l’émail pour créer une apparence plus lisse et brillante. Des études démontrent également que les patients qui utilisent un produit avec PCA pour blanchir leurs dents éprouvent moins souvent un retour à la couleur d’origine de leurs dents après six mois.

Fonctionnement du PCA

Le PCA, contenu dans NiteWhite ACP et DayWhite ACP, est appliqué au dents lors d’un traitement de blanchiment. (1)

Les grappes de PCA remplissent les tubules de la dentine, ce qui réduit la sensibilité. (2)

Le PCA se cristallise en une nouvelle couche d’hydroxyapatite, reconstruisant l’émail et remplissant les défauts de surface des dents pour en restaurer le lustre. (3)

Réhabilitation Buccalle Complete.

Les Soins Dentaires Reconstructive font référence à l'ensemble des procédures visant à:

  • remplacer les dents manquantes,
  • réparer les dents endommagées,
  • corriger la position des articulations de la mâchoire et des morsures défectueuses,

  • et, dans certains cas, traiter des maladies de la bouche.

Chacune de ces procédures peut être réalisée indépendamment, mais lorsque plusieurs problèmes de santé bucco-dentaire existent, la réhabilitation buccale complète peut être conseillée. Aussi connu comme la réhabilitation buccale, la reconstruction dentaire complète peut inclure n’importe quelle combinaison des éléments suivants:

  • Restauration dentaires: couronnes et ponts en porcelaine, plombages, inlays et onlays
  • Implantologie dentaire: implants dentaires pour remplacer les dents manquantes, de la racine à la couronne
  • Dentisterie Esthétique: facettes en porcelaine, blanchiment des dents, facettes en composite et réfection du contour des gencives
  • Dentisterie neuromusculaire / traiement des A.T.M. traitement: correction de problèmes impliquant la morsure et les articulations temporo-mandibulaire (A.T.M.)
  • Orthodontie: Invisalign, broches métalliques traditionnels et appareils d'expansion et/ou de rétention
  • Chirurgie buccale: traitement du canal radiculaire, la greffe de tissus mous et durs, et les extractions de dents.

En plus d'avoir un beau sourire, il doit fonctionner correctement. Le stress sur l’articulation de la mâchoire, la capacité de parler sans "siffler" et la mastication ne peuvent pas être compromises. Si vos besoins fonctionnels ne sont pas rencontrés, vous regretterez d'avoir eu n'importe quel travail effectué dans votre bouche.

Quand les besoins fonctionnels et cosmétiques sont satisfaits, les résultats sont spectaculaires. Cela a également comme conséquence le temps de traitement, qui est plus rapide parce que le travail dentaire n'a pas besoin d'être refait.

Orthodontie Invisalign®
De la Science dans chaque sourire

Des traitements d’orthodontie sans broches ou fils métalliques, utilisant une série de gouttières d’alignements invisibles et amovibles sont maintenant disponibles.

Dre. Christine Hindié a été certifiée avec Invisalign en 2002 et depuis 2008 obtienne annuellement la dénomination d'Invisalign® Preferred Provider Premier, en étant l'une des plus expérimentées fournisseurs du pays (top 5% parmi les dentistes et les orthodontistes en Amérique du Nord) de ce confortable, presque invisible alternative aux appareils orthodontiques traditionnels à l'aide des fils métalliques pour Adultes et Adolescents.

Invisalign® peut vous aider à avoir le merveilleux sourire dont vous avez toujours rêvé, parce qu'il est:

  • Invisible, personne ne peut soupçonner que vous redressez vos dents. Vous ressentirez moins de gêne et plus d’assurance à l’école, au travail et dans toutes vos activités quotidiennes.
  • Amovible, pour une bonne hygiène. Vous pouvez donc manger et boire ce que vous voulez pendant le traitement, vous brosser les dents et passer le fil dentaire normalement, ce qui aide à prévenir la carie et les maladies gingivales.
  • Confortable, pas de métal pour vous irriter la bouche pendant le traitement. Certains appareils orthodontiques, comme les broches, peuvent provoquer une inflammation temporaire des gencives (qui se résorbe normalement avec le retrait de l'appareil).
  • Rapide, l'experience a demontré que le traitement avec Invisalign® est en général 20% plus rapide que celui à l'aide des broches métalliques. La longueur du traitement dépendra de votre condition particulière et la durée moyenne est de 14 mois.

Dentisterie Esthétique
Sourire - Trouver La beauté intérieure

Qu’est-ce qu'un beau sourire?

Entre un sourire ordinaire et un sourire extraordinaire il n'y a qu'un petit extra qui fait toute la différence. Il est généralement accepté qu'un sourire extraordinaire a:

  • les dents droites, non pas croches.
  • les dents alignées, non pas espacées.
  • les dents blanches, sans taches ou décoloration.
  • les dents supérieures visibles quand on sourit, non pas la gencive.
  • le bout incisif des dents supérieures qui suit la courbe de la lèvre inférieure.

Avec les procédés et matériaux dentaires disponibles aujourd’hui (implants, couronnes, ponts et facettes en porcelaine), il est plus facile que jamais d’obtenir un sourire beau et sain. Un sourire qui montre des dents blanches et droites; un Sourire Exquis.

Soins Dentaires Cosmétique où Esthétique; quelle est la différence?

Nous entendons parler et parlons souvent de soins dentaires esthétiques et de soins dentaires cosmétiques sans prêter trop d’attention à ce que chaque terme représente.

  • Les Soins Dentaires Esthétiques sont les traitements dont nous avons besoin et que nous recevons suite à une mauvaise condition qui doit être corrigée, et le résultat est plus que Fonctionnel, il est aussi Esthétique.
  • Les Soins Dentaires Cosmétiques sont les traitements dont nous n’avons pas toujours besoin mais que nous recevons suite au désir d’améliorer l’apparence de notre sourire.

Occlusion Neuromusculaire
La fondation d'un sourire en santé

La Dentisterie Neuromusculaire (N.M.D), est la science qui mesure objectivement les fonctions affectées par l'occlusion et permet d'évaluer les relations complexes qui existent entre les dents, les articulations temporo-mandibulaires (A.T.M.) et les muscles masticateurs. L'évaluation résultante permet de déterminer l'occlusion qui correspond à la relation optimale entre la mandibule et le crâne, soit l'occlusion neuromusculaire.

La Dentisterie Neuromusculaire (D.N.M.) s'adresse-t-elle à Vous?

Si vous envisagez des procédures dentaires orthodontiques ou reconstructives incluant des procédures esthétiques et cosmétiques, les techniques neuromusculaires pourront vous offrir un impact positif sur la longévité des traitements de réhabilitation buccale. Si vous souffrez de maux de tête, de cou ou de n'importe lequel des symptômes d'une dysfonction de l'A.T.M., mentionnés dans la page Clinique de la Douleur, elles pourront vous offrir un soulagement que les autres disciplines médicales n'ont pas réussi à vous donner.

Il y a toujours des options à considérer lors du choix d’un traitement dentaire. L'analyse neuromusculaire nous offre une image d'ensemble de ce qui se cache derrière l'apparence de votre sourire, abordant les questions qui affectent votre santé et votre bien-être global.

Clinique de la Douleur
Comprendre les a.t.m.

Nous avons tous la capacité de fonctionner dans une position pathologique accommodatrice. Quand cette position pathologique excède notre capacité d'accommodation, nous commençons à nous plaindre de la Douleur, d'un Malaise ou de l'Esthétique.

Bien que la grande majorité des gens souffre de maladies de l'Articulation TemporoMandibulaire (A.T.M.), la plupart ne relient pas leurs douleurs et/ou symptômes à une "malocclusion" et préfèrent blâmer le stress, les enfants à la maison ou les conditions de travail.

Pointer la douleur!

La compréhension de la douleur est compliquée, principalement par le fait que la même stimulation douloureuse peut être perçue différemment par des gens différents et différemment par les même gens à des moments différents. La réaction d’une personne à des circonstances reliées à une expérience douloureuse et son interprétation de la signification de la douleur peuvent être différente.

La douleur est personnelle, privée et unique, mais il arrive souvent que des cliniciens demandent que la douleur ainsi que les circonstances douloureuses soit objectives, publiques et reproductibles.

Nouvelle Technologie
Balayage Mandibulaire Informatisé

L'Objectif: Un bon diagnostic mène au meilleur traitement.

La science et l'expérience clinique ont démontré qu’une occlusion stable dans laquelle les muscles, les articulations et les dents travaillent ensemble efficacement joue un rôle crucial dans l'issue positive de toutes les procédures dentaires.

Pour un diagnostic et une thérapie optimale, le clinicien doit être capable de mesurer de phénomènes physiologiques qui indiquent l'état de la fonction occlusale et son effet sur les muscles de la mastication et des articulations temporo-mandibulaires.

Le système K7 - C.M.S. suit le mouvement mandibulaire en trois dimensions et aussi la torsion mandibulaire.

Les scans obtenus sont des inestimables représentations tridimensionnelles du repos de la mandibule, le trajet neuromusculaire de fermeture, l’occlusion centrée, le trajet habituel de fermeture et la guidance en propulsion.

Le système breveté d'évaluation K7 de Myotronics - Noromed Inc., permet à l'équipe du Dre. Christine Hindié d’obtenir les données nécessaires à mesurer la fonction occlusale objectivement en trois dimensions, afin de l'aider à fournir un diagnostic réel et un traitement optimal pour tous les cas majeure en dentisterie - esthétique, cosmétique, restauratrice, orthodontie et les dysfonctions temporo-mandibulaires.
