Dental implant is like an artificial tooth root, and is placed into the jaw bone.
 
A new artificial tooth can then be attached to an implant.

Dental implants are widely utilised to:

  • Replace a missing tooth or teeth to restore the function and apperance of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Secure implant supported  fixed bridge to replace multiple missing teeth.
  • Retain removable dentures to prevent movement and dramatically improve the stability.

Dentures are of the options to replace missing or lost teeth. It help patients feel more confident when smiling, talking  and enhance the ability to enjoy eating  a wide range of foods.

There are three types of dentures:

    1. A full set of denture replaces all the missing  teeth. These dentures sit  on the gums of either your upper or lower jaws, or both. A full set of dentures helps provide support to your facial structure allowing your lips and cheeks to look fuller, resulting in a younger, healthier appearance.
    2. Partial denture replaces lost or missing teeth and are usually retained by clasps around your existing teeth. Replacing missing teeth will make eating easier and provide you with a more confident smile. These dentures can have a plastic or metal  base for added retention , strength and stability.
    3. Implant supported  dentures are a popular alternative to conventional dentures. An implant retained denture replaces one or more missing  teeth and is held in place by dental implants secured within the jaw.

Implant retained dentures provide better ability to eat and enjoy a wide range of  foods like steak, raw fruits and vegetables. They increased confidence are  more stable stable and secure compared to the other types of dentures.

Root canal treatment (endodontic treatment) is required when there’s infection in the pulpal structure of the tooth.
 
It involves examination to assess the health of the pulp and surrounding tissue. Once identified, the dentist will access the pulp and remove the tissue under anaesthesia. To properly clean out the canal may involve several appointments. When the canal system has been completely cleaned out, it’ll be filled up with the appropriate material. A crown may be indicated for the full protection when the tooth doesn’t have much structure left.

Veneer is a dental  procedure in which a thin layer porcelain or composite resin facings are bonded to the front surface of the  teeth. Veneers are a more conservative  approach in comparison to dental crowns Veneers   are used frequently to fix the following conditios:

  • crooked, mis-shaped or misaligned teeth.
  • stained or discoloured teeth
  • crowded teethps 
  • gap between teeth
  • broken or chip teeth 
Most people have 4 wisdom teeth: 2 in the upper jaw and 2 in the lower jaw.  Wisdom teeth generally erupt into the mouth during your late teens or early twenties.
 
Do I nee to have  my wisdom teeth removed?
Often  there is not enough room  at the rear of the jaws for wisdom teeth to fully erupt and be functional. A wisdom tooth can erupt partly through the gum , or remained burried below the gum-this is know impacted wisdom tooth.
 
Your wisdom teeth need to be removed if they cause problems.  For Example:
  1. To reduce the risk  of infection from a partially erupted wisdom tooth
  2. To eliminate  any foodtraps created by a partially erupted wisdom tooth
  3. To prevent decay  to adjacent teeth
  4. To avoid the formation of cysts and tumuours develop in the tissue around impacted wisdom teeth
  5. To reduce potential crowding by increasing the effects of pushing and crowding on remaining teeth as the wisdom teeth try to move forward or erupt.
  6. Tor prevent problems like pain, swelling and/or infection associated with eruption/partial eruption of wisdom teeth.

What is the procedure for wisdom teeth removal?

Wisdom teeth can be removed under local anaesthetic in the Dentist’s chair, underoral sedation ,  intravenous sedation in the dentist’s chair or under general anaesthetic in a hospital.

Procedures under local anaesthetic usually takes place in the Dentist’s rooms, and can be performed with or without oral sedatives, or intravenous sedation. 

Gum disease can affect patients of all ages and is one of the major factors contributing to bad breath, tooth pain and tooth loss.

The main cause of gum disease is bacterial plaque , a colourless film that constantly forms on your teeth.

Gum disease has two stages:
STAGE 1 – GINGIVITIS
Gingivitis is the mildest form of gum disease and is a result of the build-up of bacterial plaque forms on the teeth and also between teeth .The bacteria in the plaque release toxins that cause the gum to become swollen tender and bleeding. Gingivitis is reversible.
STAGE 2 – PERIODONTITIS
Periodontitis is the advanced stage of gum disease and can be quite destructive. Periodontitis can cause irreversible damage to the gums and supporting bone eventually resulting in tooth loss if left untreated.

The symptoms  are  bleeding upon brushing , bad breath, tender to bite and increase in the mobility of the teeth. Gums become inflamed and can also be tender and painful, red or swollen. Other  symptoms are  bad breath, tender to bite and increas in the mobility of the teeth.

Gum disease treatment options
Iin the first appointmentyour  dentist will review your medical and dental history .Your teeth and gums  will be examined and xrays taken  to examine the bone supporting your teeth.After the information has been gathered  your case will be discussed   with you you  and recommend the best treatment for you.

In moderate to mild cases of periodontal disease  involves your dentist providing a thorough scale and clean to remove the plaque and calculus deposits. Your dentist will also provide you with information on how best to look after your teeth at home to prevent future gum disease symptoms.

For patients with more advanced periodontal disease , a more extensive clean of the teeth and root surfaces  will be required. The treatment will  be completed over a number of appointments and may require local anaesthetic prior to the deep scaling and cleaning (root planing) commencing.

In some cases, surgery is required to re contour the gum tissue into a shape that is easier to clean the root surfaces in deep pockets.

In the long term regular dental  check up,  scale and clean (removal of calculus and plaque) and careful oral hygiene technique  is essential to maintain the gum health  and to prevent recurrence of your gum disease. 

This is a bleaching process which lightens the colour of teeth and can be done both on vital or non vital teeth.
 
It’s important before the process starts that you have a thorough examination to rule out any existing problems. The results can vary between areas around the mouth as well as individuals.
 
In-chair whitening and take home system are both available. Please discuss your needs with your dentist to achieve the ultimate result.

  1. Teeth have large restorations and minimal tooth structure left
  2. Root canal treated teeth
