Whether you have a broken tooth or missing teeth, our team can solve your problem. We install different types of implants to replace one or more missing teeth in our maxillofacial surgery clinic..
We work in cooperation with your dentist to place the screw (artificial root) in the best position to receive the dental crown (the tooth) or dental implant (several teeth). By making the work of our dental colleagues easier, we aim for nothing less than perfection!
If necessary, a 3D X-ray of your jaw will be taken at our clinic and a computerized surgical planning will be considered. Furthermore, in order to eliminate pain and anxiety the placement of dental implants can be done with intravenous sedation.

Our dental implantology services in the Gatineau region
If your dentist determines that your jaw does not have enough bone or gums to receive a dental implant, we can perform bone or gum grafts before the placement of dental implants. Dr. Sarah Théberge has a great deal of expertise in this field, which enables her to perform bone grafts in our operating rooms. Surgeries done in hospital are exclusive to patients requiring extensive reconstruction grafts, or for patients with a particular medical condition.
Dental implant placement
A dental implant is the best solution to replace a missing tooth. This procedure involves replacing the natural root of the tooth (its support) with a screw to install a dental crown or a permanent prosthesis. Replacing your teeth with dental implants is a permanent solution to restore aesthetics, function and feel of your natural teeth.
As a maxillofacial specialist in the Gatineau region, Dr Théberge continuously acquires knowledge in the field of implantology in order to remain at the forefront of the latest dental implant placement technology. She regularly uses computer-guided surgery techniques to place the implants.
Have you ever been told you don’t have enough bone in your upper jaw for implants?
If you want to improve the sturdiness of your denture, you can opt for zygomatic implants. Zygomatic implants are anchored in the zygomatic bone (cheek bone) inside your mouth. Due to its particular angulation, the sinus bone graft (sinus lift) is avoided in order to quickly screw-in the denture.
If you qualify, Dr Théberge will refer you to a prosthodontist (implant specialist) to work with. Therefore, we can place the zygomatic implants and the temporarily screwed denture in the same day.
Dental implants are useful for replacing a missing tooth.
Dental implants can be used to replace many natural teeth that had to be removed.
Dental implants can also support a complete dental prothesis.
