Teeth Removal (Extractions)

When it comes to dental procedures, tooth extraction — or having teeth “pulled” — is among patients’ most dreaded prospects. Also referred to as exodontia, tooth extraction involves removing a tooth from its socket in the jaw bone.

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.

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.

Functional Appliances

Functional appliances are devices used to correct a significant disharmony in the relationship between the upper and lower jaws. They work by influencing the growth and development of a growing patient.

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.

Gummy Smile

A gummy smile is often something we can correct with a few different treatment options. There are several reasons why you may have a gummy smile and the treatment we use to correct it will depend on the cause.

Discolouration

Drinking coffee, tea, soft drink, red wine and smoking can all discolour your teeth. This causes obvious physical changes in colour to the teeth but also causes undue strain and stress to your teeth.

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.

Missing Teeth

Having teeth that are missing is nothing to be embarrassed about. At Thirroul Dental Studio we can give you the best treatment plan to transform your smile.

Root Canal Therapy (Endodontic)

If you have a damaged tooth, root canal treatment may help to save it. Inside your tooth is soft tissue containing nerves, and blood and lymph vessels, known as the tooth pulp that runs through the centre of a tooth.
