Our advice


After careful analysis by our stomatologists, replacing a tooth with an implant may be the right choice. In the past, fixed bridges were the only solution available, requiring a significant reduction in the number of teeth. Now, dental implants enable us to replace one or more missing teeth while keeping your neighboring teeth intact.

Dental implants can support and stabilize removable dentures. The prosthesis and the muscles responsible for your facial expression will retain their tone. Laughing and eating well have never been so much fun! Restore your quality of life and boost your confidence! Allow yourself to speak, eat and laugh naturally, comfortably and confidently.

Dental implants can be placed as early as adulthood. In principle, there is no age limit. However, the patient’s general health, implant site and expectations must be assessed beforehand. That’s why your dentist at Ares Dental Brussels suggests a preliminary examination.

After examining your teeth and taking the necessary x-rays, our implantologist will present you with a treatment plan and alternative solutions. You will receive a cost estimate and all the treatment steps will be clearly explained to you. The end result is to make you forget the loss of your teeth as quickly as possible, in favor of a healthy, natural smile. In short, your quality of life will increase considerably, whether you’re chewing, talking or smiling.

Each case is unique, as many factors influence the protocol and the overall duration of the process. A number of visits are usually required to complete the full treatment, which can take from three (3) to eighteen (18) months. When aesthetics come into play, the edentulous space is filled with temporary teeth, allowing you to enjoy a full smile immediately.

Each region must be assessed individually. A minimum amount of bone volume (thickness and height of the jawbone) is required for implant placement, otherwise the implants will not be strong in the long term. If you do not have the required bone volume, it is possible to modify the area in question prior to implant placement. This procedure can be crucial to the success and longevity of your implants.

A number of factors may contraindicate dental implants for some people.

Here are a few examples:

  • Radiation therapy to the mouth in the past.
  • Uncontrolled diabetes.
  • Heavy alcohol consumption.
  • Special medications (anticoagulants and immunosuppressants) and biphosphonates.
  • Active oral disease such as periodontitis.
  • Renal dialysis.
  • Recent or previous myocardial infarction.
  • Heart failure.
  • Blood problems (e.g. hemophilia).
  • Unattainable aesthetic expectations.
  • Risky integration of implants in smokers, as healing is compromised.

In these special cases, further tests are required to determine whether implants can be placed. If necessary, your dentist will contact your attending physician.

Just like your natural teeth, new implanted teeth require regular brushing and flossing to reduce the build-up of bacterial plaque. Regular visits to your dentist are also an excellent way to ensure the health and longevity of your dental implants.

Teeth whitening

This process uses a whitening gel activated by light at a specific frequency. It acts on tooth enamel and dentin without affecting tooth structure. Tooth whitening is safe, effective and fast.

There are many reasons for this, the most common being age, consumption of products that stain the teeth (coffee, tea, soft drinks, tobacco, etc.), and trauma. During the period of tooth growth, regular use of tetracycline and other antibiotics can also cause discoloration.

It’s for customers who want a rapid effect, immediate results, or who have conditions requiring closer monitoring (gum recession or deep root abrasion). With a thorough oral examination and tone assessment, our dentist can tell you if you’re a good candidate for this procedure. For patients who want to achieve more whiteness, chairside teeth whitening gives better results than at-home systems. Our team of dentists will assist you and help you choose the best procedure and alternative for your convenience.

We only work with the latest technology devices, which whiten your teeth even more effectively in 45 minutes instead of 60 minutes with older systems. On the other hand, it’s more comfortable for the patient to have the shortest treatment, so as to keep his or her mouth open for as short a time as possible.

The dentist must first examine the mouth. Cleaning is recommended before the session to remove external deposits and stains. The dentist applies a transparent gel to the teeth, then activates it with a light.

Yes. Bleaching removes most stains and discoloration caused by food, tobacco, root canal treatment or the natural aging of teeth. A study has shown that using the lamp increases the gel’s effectiveness, resulting in an improvement of up to 14 shades. Results vary from patient to patient, depending on their initial condition. It is measured and graded using the Vita Classical Shade Guide.

The product’s safety and efficacy are well established. The product has been used safely for many years to treat gums and soft tissues. Avoid use by pregnant or breast-feeding women. Smoking is contraindicated during bleaching treatment. Some patients experience a temporary increase in sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear between 1 and 3 days after the end of treatment. Dental bleaching is considered by many dentists to be the least aggressive, risk-free treatment in cosmetic dentistry.

By following certain post-whitening instructions, your teeth will stay whiter and brighter than before. All you need to do is maintain the whitening with a home product and maintain your usual oral hygiene. Occasional touch-ups with the home gel kit are recommended.

Pedodontics/Pediatric dentistry

Parents can teach their children about brushing and good oral health. Children’s cavities must be prevented as soon as their first milk teeth appear.

The dentist must be informed of the child’s sporting activities. Sports and leisure activities can cause bumps and broken teeth.

A child’s first visit to the dentist can be stressful.
The child should not be alarmed before the consultation.
A dentist specializing in pediatric dentistry is accustomed to instilling confidence in children.

When gums are irritated, or when you suspect cavities. You can make an appointment at our Ares Dental practices if your child has not been treated, but the visit is still an opportunity to remind him or her of the practices associated with good oral hygiene and tooth brushing.
