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.

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.

Old Fillings

Old coloured fillings should be checked to see if there are any signs of leaking or fracture. If left un-repaired they can fracture your teeth and leak, causing decay to the remaining parts of the tooth.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
