Make Your Life Easier With Dental Insurance
No need to worry: clinique dentaire Caroline Provencher will take care of sending your dental insurance forms electronically. In most cases, the amount that is accepted for your dental treatments is sent almost immediately. All you have to pay when you visit the dentist is the deductible and the percentage that your insurer does not cover.
Insurance coverage varies depending on the agreement between the insurance company and your employer. We are not legally permitted to overcharge your insurance company or not collect the difference from you. Therefore, it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with your coverage and the maximum amount that you can claim per year.
For patients whose insurance forms cannot be sent electronically, we will fill them out quickly and hand them back to you. You can then pay the fees at the clinic and send the duly completed forms to your insurer. Upon request from your insurer, we will be happy to provide a treatment plan or an estimate.

Following an intervention
Minor surgery or tooth extraction
Keep the compresses in your mouth for 30 or 40 minutes, maintaining firm pressure. Change the dressing every 30 minutes, as needed.
Keep your head elevated.
Apply ice or a cold-water compress to your cheek at regular intervals (20 minutes every hour).
If there is bleeding, apply some gauze or a moistened tea bag and bite down on it for approximately 20 minutes.
Some bleeding and colour in the saliva is normal after surgery.
Limit your physical effort, and be sure to rest.
To be avoided:
Don’t remove any clotted blood because it facilitates the healing process.
Do not eat until the wound has stopped bleeding.
Do not drink through a straw.
Do not rinse your mouth out or spit.
Do not smoke or drink alcohol.
Eat only soft foods.
Do not brush your teeth near the wound for the first 72 hours.
If you experience pain, take the prescribed medication.
If the dentist has prescribed antibiotics, take them until the prescription is finished, even after the symptoms have disappeared.
Consume only soft foods and warm liquids on the day of your surgery. Return to your normal diet when you feel up to it.
From the day after your surgery until you are fully healed:
Rinse your mouth three times per day with warm water and salt (2 ml or 1/2 tsp. of salt in 250 ml or 1 cup of water).
Brush your teeth and floss every day in order to eliminate plaque and ensure the best results over the long term.
Avoid hard foods (nuts, candies, ice cubes, etc.).
Some patients notice increased saliva production and a change in their pronunciation. These symptoms should subside within a week.
Bruises may appear on your skin. They should clear up within 5 to 7 days.
It may be more difficult to open your mouth. Things should return to normal within 4 or 5 days.
If the pain increases after 3 days instead of decreasing, contact your dentist.
You should feel better in a few days, and can return to your normal activities. If you continue to feel pain, bleed profusely, remain swollen for 2 or 3 days, or experience a reaction to the medication, please contact the clinic immediately, at 450-437-6446.
