Not that far from Laval-Ouest, right in the centre of Laval Island, you will find Centre dentaire Birca. We offer you all the basic and specialized services you will need to keep your mouth healthy.
Our dental centre is a one-stop shop for all your dental needs, from regular check-ups to major reconstructive surgeries. With the help of the latest technologies, we diagnose and treat any dental problem you have.
Since Centre dentaire Birca is located right in the centre of Laval Island, near the intersection of highways 15 and 440, it is easily accessible from any part of Laval, North Shore and even the northern part of Montréal. Your experience at our clinic will begin with a free parking lot before you enter our safe and clean facilities and be welcomed by our friendly staff, from the reception area to the dentist’s chair.
All our personnel are focused on delivering you the best possible experience when you visit us. When you come to us for any dental need, you are treated like family and we love to make sure you are comfortable, despite the reasons you have to visit us. That is why we have dozens of positive reviews on Google.
Of course, we offer you all the basic and traditional services of dentistry, but also all kinds of specialized treatments or surgeries to address more serious issues.
In order to give you the best treatment to correct a situation quickly and obliterate the pain, we need to get the right diagnosis. To get the right diagnosis the first time, we need to have detailed images of the zone where the problem is. Traditionally, we used film X-rays that needed some time to be developed. The quality of the image was sometimes low, and we had problems seeing minor details.
Nowadays, at Centre dentaire Birca, we use digital X-rays, which allow us to have an image faster, but also an image we can zoom in to look more closely at some details without having to take additional images. Your digital X-rays are automatically added to your electronic patient file for easy consultation.
To complete the diagnostic and during the treatment, we can also use an intra-oral camera, allowing your dentist to have a different perspective on the zone being treated. This is much better than what he could see from outside your mouth, even with the help of mirrors.
Some of Our Specialized Services
As we mentioned, Centre dentaire Birca is a family dental clinic, taking care of all your regular dental needs (treating both adults and children). Besides those general services, we offer you many specialized services and surgeries. In this article, we will talk about endodontics and periodontics, to demystify them, but we also offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services (teeth whitening, veneers, alignment, bridges, implants, dentures, etc.). All those services under one roof are what make us the best dental clinic for you.
Periodontics is the branch of dentistry that is focusing on everything around the teeth (“peri” is a Greek prefix meaning “around”). Concretely, that means it is about gums and the bone structure supporting the gums and the teeth. So, this is the care needed if your gums are always swollen, for example, if you have gingivitis. We need to understand the cause of the swelling and address it. With time, this inflammation or infection might lead to more serious gum disease and cause the gum to retract. This will lead to periodontal disease. When that happens, the base of your teeth is exposed and, since it is not protected by an enamel layer or your gums anymore, it is easily attacked to create cavities. If your condition is not treated and continues to deteriorate, the problem can affect the bone structure under the gums, making your teeth lose their anchorage.
While periodontics is about anything around the teeth, endodontics is about what is inside your teeth (Greek prefix “endo” means “inside”). The most common (and infamous) treatment of endodontics is the root canal treatment. During this procedure, the dentist cleans and scrubs the canals of your tooth of any living material and fills the canals with a material that will not transmit the pain. The top of the tooth will then be capped with a crown to protect the inside of your tooth.
If you are looking for a dental clinic in Laval-Ouest, it is worth it to expand a bit your parameter to include Centre dentaire Birca, in the heart of Laval Island. Much more than a neighbourhood dental office, we offer you a one-stop shop for all your dental needs. With us, you will never be referred elsewhere for a complex or specialized treatment, since we have all the resources and expertise under the same roof.
Our surgeons have various expertise and can address any of your needs, including in endodontics and periodontics, which we discussed in this article.
