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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ceramic (Clear) Braces

Ceramic braces use tooth coloured brackets, which are bonded to the teeth. This type of teeth straightening braces is popular among adult orthodontic patients as they are less visible than metallic braces and are a similar colour to the natural colour of your teeth.

Multiple Teeth Implants

If you have a single tooth missing and you’re looking for a more permanent solution, a single dental implant may be the answer for you. The implant replaces the lost or missing tooth and it’s root, with an implant and dental crown fitted over the top.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the rear molars that erupt sometime around the late teens or early 20s. These teeth can sometimes cause overcrowding, or can impact into the gum or neighbouring teeth.
