Teeth Grinding (Bruxism) and Clenching

Bruxism is the clenching or grinding of your teeth, often while you sleep. When clenching you tightly clamp your top and bottom teeth together, often the back teeth. Cleanching places pressure on your muscles and tissue.

Gingivitis

Gingivitis is a gum disease which causes inflammation of the gums. It is the early stages of periodontal disease and should be treated early on before it advanced in to Periodontitis. Red, swollen gums and bleeding gums are a sign you may have gingivitis.

Jaw Joint (TMJ) Disorders and Headaches

TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint dysfunction) is a medical problem effecting the temporomandibular joint which is a hinge connecting your jaw to your skull. The most common cause of the disorder has to do with sleep and trauma.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal (Gum) Disease ranges from simple inflammation of the gums to a major disease. It damages the soft tissue surrounding the teeth and can cause receding gums and even loss of teeth.

Bad Breath

Bad breath (Halitosis) is commonly caused by a sulphur-producing bacteria in your tongue or throat. About 2.4% of all Australian adults have bad breath. It is important to note that bad breath is not contagious.

Removable Appliances

Removable appliances (plates) are not braces. Unlike braces which are attached directly to the teeth, removable appliances are often used for early intervention cases.

Metal Braces

Metallic braces are the traditional orthodontic treatment and are often more cost effective. This most commonly used fixed braces are made from stainless steel and selected highly elastic metal alloys.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting for dental implants is sometimes required when the time between loss of bone and surgery is extensive. Grafting of bone where it has been lost, encourages the development of optimal foundations, which are essential for dental implants.

Sensitivity

Sensitivity to hot and cold occurs when the enamel or cementum on your teeth wear away. This exposes the dentin, a layer of protection on your teeth.
