Sleep Dental Medicine (Anti-Snoring)

Do you, your partner or someone you know snore? Two out of every ten Australian adults will experience snoring in their lifetime. For some people, it may indicate a serious medical condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).

Crowded, Spaced or Crooked Teeth

Having crowded, spaced or crooked teeth can have a major impact on your oral health and enjoyment in life. There are many reasons why you may want to correct these imperfections, with most of us wanting a more straighter smile.

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.

Single Tooth Implants

Single tooth implants are a great alternative to dentures or a dental bridge. The procedure is often more costly but can be managed with finance options.

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.

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.

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.

Broken Teeth

Broken or chipped teeth from accidents, eating or chewing and wear can leave your smile problematic aesthetically. Teeth that are broken or chipped can create other dental problems which is why broken or chipped teeth should be repaired as soon as possible.

Preventive Dental Care

To prevent oral health problems, good dental preventive practices should be followed. Good oral hygiene habits will keep your oral health great and allow for confident and beautiful smiles.
