- Check ups – Recommended every 6 months to detect any decay or gum diseases. Early detection allows for minimal procedures helping to prevent/minimize the need for major dental work.
- X-rays – Important tool for your dental assessment
- Cleans and Polish – Also recommended every 6 months to help control the risk of gum disease and decay. Even if your at home care is immaculate tartar build up is inevitable and a professional clean will remove any of that unwanted build up.
- Fluoride – Concentrated Fluoride applications help to strengthen tooth structure making teeth more resilient to decay.
- Mouth guards – Custom mouth guards are the most effective protective equipment to help prevent injury to the mouth – teeth, lips, cheeks and tongue.
- Grinding Appliances – Teeth grinding is surprisingly common and often happens whilst asleep. Grinding not only damages your teeth but can also be the cause of jaw pain, ear ache, facial pain and tooth sensitivity. A customized splint helps reduce these pressures and relieve these symptoms.
- Gum Lift – Are you self conscious about your gummy smile? A gum lift or gingivectomy is a procedure done normally only on front teeth to reshape your gum line, lifting it to create a more pleasing smile.
- Tooth Whitening – This is a popular way to improve your smile by lightening the shade of your existing teeth. We preform both laser tooth whitening, which is an inchair procedure, as well as a home whitening, which consists of a kit with custom whitening trays, peroxide based gel and detailed instructions. The home whitening can take up to 14 days to achieve your desired results. Book in for a consultation to asses your suitability with one of our friendly dentists.
- Tooth Coloured Fillings – Sick of those unattractive silver fillings? Tooth coloured fillings (or composite bonding) can repair cracked, chipped or broken teeth as well as replace silver amalgam fillings.
- Porcelain Veneers – A Veneer is a thin layer of tooth coloured material (such as composite or porcelain) which is bonded over the front of your teeth. Teeth enhance the shape and colour of your teeth to give you that confident smile.
- Veneers are excellent for treating chipped, discoloured, slightly misaligned or misshapen teeth or gaps between teeth. Especially if these defects affect the front teeth.
- White Fillings (Composite) – a filling replaces the part of a tooth that has been lost due to decay or breakage. Composite gives an aesthetically pleasing result which no one would know was there. They do however have their limitations in very large cavities and sometimes a crown may be indicated or recommended.
- Crowns – A crown is an individually crafted tooth shaped cover that fits over the existing natural tooth to restore and protect the tooth. They can be made wholely of porcelain or have a metallic base with a porcelain exterior to prolong the life of heavily restored teeth, cracked and warn teeth and root canal treated teeth, they are also used to improve the shape and alignment of teeth.
- Bridge – A bridge is a great option to replace one or more missing teeth if you do not want implants or dentures. It is a permanent fixture which consists of an individually handcrafted artificial tooth anchored to the teeth on each side of the gap.
- There are many different designs and materials which can be used and your dentist can discuss with you which is the best option for you.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is needed if the decay or trauma in a tooth has affected or reached the tooth’s pulp (or nerve) causing it to die and become infected. If left untreated this can cause severe pain, swelling of the gum and face, pus draining from the adjacent gum leaving a bad taste and tooth loss. The process involves removal of the infected nerve and replacing it with a special root filling.
Dental Implants are an option for replacing missing teeth. They involve the placement of a titanium screw in the bone of your jaw, which over time integrates with the bone. Once healing around the implant is complete an individually crafted porcelain crown is fitted to create your ‘new’ tooth. If you are sick of those loose dentures, implants may also be an option for you. Titanium implants can be placed with attachments allowing for a denture to be ‘clipped’ onto the implant and therefore stabilizing the denture in the mouth.
Orthodontic treatment improves the appearance and function of teeth. Mal aligned or crooked teeth can affect appearance, reducing self-confidence, can make cleaning difficult, can affect chewing of foods and can even be the cause of some speech problems. If you or your children have overlapping or crowding of your teeth and are looking for treatment involving braces, you can book in for a consultation with Dr Nazha. Dr Nazha uses the latest systoms for fast and effective straightening.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to come through the gums. Often there is little space at the rear of the jaw for the wisdom tooth to come through easily. If there is not enough room the tooth becomes wedged or ‘impacted’. Some impacted teeth remain buried and cause no problem however other impacted wisdom teeth may cause severe problems, such as infections and facial swellings. Removal of a troublesome wisdom tooth should be done as soon as possible before the problem gets worse. If you have any concerns with your wisdom teeth book in for a consultation with Dr Michael Nazha to discuss your treatment and costs.
