Dental Implants, Dentist Dr. Michel Fancelli, Longeuil, Quebec, Canada

If you have a missing tooth, one of the ways of replacing it involves a dental implant. In this report, Dr. Michel Fancelli explains implants.

A dental implant is a small titanium screw placed into the jawbone as the base for replacing a missing tooth (or missing teeth). Dr. Fancelli says that implants have been a dental solution to missing teeth for about thirty years in North America.

However, an implant may not work for everyone. Dr. Fancelli says that the beginning step is to take a jaw x-ray to determine whether the jaw is wide and long enough to accommodate one or more implants. Implants today are used to replace a single tooth, more than one tooth (using bridges), or all the teeth using special dentures.

One of the most important uses today, says Dr. Fancelli, is to solidify dentures. The screw can help to stabilize a denture when a patient has lost bone and gum support necessary to keep the denture in place. Implants are also used to stabilize partial plates. This can help prevent a partial from loosening teeth and causing further tooth loss.

Implants are not painful. In fact, says Dr. Fancelli, patients tell him that having the extraction was more painful than having the implant done. For most people, the only pain medication they will need is Tylenol, Advil, or Motrin. Implants are typically done in a dental office and treated just like doing a filling.

Bleeding Gums, Dentist Dr. Michel Fancelli, Longeuil, Quebec, Canada

Many people encounter bleeding gums on an occasional or a regular basis. The problem, called gingivitis, is a common one. Dr. Michel Fancelli discusses bleeding gums in this report.

Dr. Fanchelli says that gingivitis is the problem he most often encounters in adult patients. The main cause of bleeding gums is plaque on the teeth. Plaque is a bacteria film on the teeth, and the bacteria can infect the gums, causing swelling and bleeding. If the plaque is not dealt with, it will become tartar. Over time, the tartar will affect not only the gum but the underlying bone as well. Unless it is stopped at that point, a person will end up losing teeth.

Dr. Fanchelli explains that there are other causes for bleeding gums, however. For example, people who have diabetes tend to have gums that bleed easily. Blood thinning medications such as Coumadin can cause gums to bleed easily. Women who are pregnant or lactating will have more sensitive gums.

Dr. Fanchelli points out that, for someone who is suffering from bleeding gums, the most important treatment is to get the teeth thoroughly cleaned by a dentist, removing all the plaque and tartar. Patients also need to take charge of their own dental hygiene by brushing their teeth twice a day and flossing daily. There are also oral antiseptics that can prevent problems from getting worse.

If a patent has advanced problems, some more drastic treatment may be involved, including curettage, bone regeneration, and tissue grafting.

Teeth Whitening, Dentist Dr. Michel Fancelli, Longeuil, Quebec, Canada

Many people put considerable effort into achieving a whiter smile. Dr. Michel Fancelli discusses why teeth darken and how to get them whiter in this report.

Dr. Fancelli explains that teeth darkening is a natural phenomenon associated with aging. However, there are other factors that can cause teeth to darken, including poor enamel formation and food coloring in things we eat and drink.

There are several options for whitening teeth, says Dr. Fancelli. One is the method he uses in his office, which involves applying a concentrated whitening product to the teeth and then activating it with a light. Zoom is one of these products, and it works very well, but it is not for sensitive teeth, and it requires protection of the gums.

Another popular method is home bleaching. To accomplish this, Dr. Fancelli makes a molds of a patient’s teeth. Gels are placed inside the molds, and patients wear the molds either for several hours or overnight, depending on the concentration of the whitening agent.

Some people also purchase over-the-counter whitening strips for home use. These products work well, Dr. Fancelli says, but they are not as strong as the products a dentist would use, and a person who develops a problem using the strips has nowhere to go for help. For example, if your teeth are crooked, you will probably have uneven bleaching.

Whitening products are generally safe, Dr. Fancelli explains, but the first step in any whitening process should be a visit to the dentist to make sure the mouth is okay. This includes dealing with cavities, bleeding gums, and exposed roots. Bleaching can cause problems in these situations. The most significant secondary effect of the bleaching is to make teeth more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures.

People also need to be aware that whitening products are designed only to whiten tooth enamel. Bleaching will not change the color of fillings, crowns, or any other artificial structure in the teeth. As contraindications, Dr. Fancelli points out that bleaching is not recommended for women who are pregnant or lactating, and it is not recommended for children under age thirteen.

As for whitening toothpastes, Dr. Fancelli suggests that this is a marketing ploy. In order for bleaching to occur, the product must touch the teeth for a long time. Most people brush their teeth in about a minute. What these toothpastes contain are abrasives, not whitening agents.

Dental Braces, Dentist Dr. Michel Fancelli, Longeuil, Quebec, Canada

Braces on teeth are a part of the growing-up process for many children and young adults. They serve an important purpose, and there are several options for patients who need orthodontic care. Dr. Michel Fancelli discusses braces in this report.

Dr. Fancelli points out that the popularity of braces is in large part due to people’s desire to look good, and looking good makes people feel good about themselves. However, there are practical reasons why straight teeth are important. It is easier to clean teeth properly, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, and bone loss.

Also, having properly aligned teeth improves the bite. Dr. Fancelli explains that a good bite produces normal stresses on the teeth, so there will be no torqueing on the jaw while chewing, as can result from crooked teeth. This reduces the risk of having temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain. People with straight teeth can chew better and are less likely to develop a speech problem, like a lisp.

The commonest type of braces, says Dr. Fancelli, are the metal brackets that are seen on most teenagers who are undergoing orthodontic treatment. There are also tooth-colored braces made from ceramic material. They are less noticeable than the metal brackets, but they are bulkier and are more fragile. Another popular option is invisible braces like the Invisalign. Patients have a whole series of these that are worn over time to gradually realign the teeth.

The reason most people need braces is that their jaws are too small to accommodate all of their teeth. Muscle tension around the mouth can prevent the jaw from developing properly, causing the teeth to grow in crooked. Dr. Fancelli explains that, in his practice, he uses Myofunctional appliances to solve jaw problems. The appliances are made out of silicone, and patients wear them one or two hours each day and while they are sleeping. The appliances help children to break bad oral habits and let the teeth grow in perfectly aligned.

The Importance of Good Sleep Hygiene, with Dr. Jacques Hebert, Centre Dentaire Fancelli, Montreal (Longueuil), Canada

What is Sleep Hygiene?

Sleep is a part of our life that we seem to be getting less & less because of our extremely busy daily routine. And sleep is essential in order to survive and function  everyday. 

And you don’t need to be a snorer or suffer from obstructive sleep apnea to start making changes in your life so you can have a better night sleep. Even people who don’t have those conditions can profit from modifying their habits around bedtime.

A series of simple recommendations and changes to get a better night sleep make up what we call Sleep Hygiene.

What are the signs of Poor Sleep Hygiene?

Many signs are indicator of a poor sleep hygiene or basically that you don’t have a good night sleep.

They include excessive daytime sleepiness or fatigue, problem falling and staying asleep, frequent awakening during the night or a very stressful lifestyle to name a few.

What are the recommendations for good sleep hygiene?

Dr Hebert, from the Fancelli’s Snoring Clinic  in Longueuil says that if you want a good or better night sleep, following these simple recommendations will be very helpful and beneficial

Start having a regular schedule by trying to go to bed around the same time every night and waking up at the same time in the morning 

Have a relaxing pre sleep routine by trying to resolve any worries before going to bed.

The bedroom should only be used for sleep and intimacy. It should be dark and peaceful with a cool temperature setting. 

You should limit the amount of time you lay awake in bed trying to fall asleep to no more than 20 minutes then get up and move to another room and return to bed only when sleepy.

Avoid drinking alcohol at least 3 to 5 hours before sleep time.

Limit your consumption of caffeine to 1or2 cups per day and at least 6 hours before.

You need to exercise regularly and everyday but you should avoid strenuous exercises at least 3.5 before bedtime. 

And absolutely avoid “naps” during the day but if you need to, limit it to no more then 10 minutes.

If you still feel tired or sleepy during the day even after following these recommendations, you need to talk to your doctor or dentist specializing in sleep or consult a sleep specialist.
