Finding The Right Cosmetic Dentist For You

By |March 24th, 2015|Dentistry|0 Comments

The number of cosmetic dentists in Sydney is vast, and sometimes it can be challenging to know what to look for when sorting through all the options.  Because you need a dentist you can trust, who will provide exceptional service and give you the results you want, it is generally not a good idea just to pick someone who just happens to be in your suburb or who pops up first when you search online.  Let’s look at some of the ways you can find the right cosmetic dentist for you in Sydney.

Services And Qualifications

Cosmetic dentistry is a specialised field requiring additional training and knowledge above and beyond that of a general dentist.  You shouldn’t assume that all cosmetic dentists provide the same services or treatment.  When choosing a cosmetic dentist in Sydney you should look for one that specialises in the dental techniques you require – these can range from bleaching and ongoing regular whitening services, fixing broken, misshapen or missing teeth, right up to orthodontic treatments such as jaw re-alignments and braces.

You also want to make sure that your dentist is well trained and keeps up with all the latest industry tools and technology.  Obviously the cosmetic dentist you choose should have the appropriate levels of education and on the job training.  They may also have additional qualifications or extra training to supplement their degrees (for example, they may have completed training in using the latest tools or techniques).  Many choose to display such qualifications in their clinics or on their websites, however you can also enquire about such credentials when making a booking.

A Guide To Root Canal Treatment

By |February 9th, 2015|Dentistry|0 Comments

Root canal treatment, also sometimes called an endodontic treatment, is a procedure in which the damaged, dead or diseased pulp of a tooth is replaced with a filling. In the event of severe loss of tooth structure, a crown may also need to be fitted to protect the area. It is a common dental procedure, and generally carried out by a dentist specialising in the area or an endodontist.
When Should I See A Dentist About My Tooth?
There are many reasons why the soft tissue found inside your tooth (the pulp) might become damaged or diseased, including cracked or fractured teeth, nerve damage, trauma or infection. The pulp is a vital part of the tooth as it functions as the conduit for lymph and blood vessels in your jaw. Leaving badly infected or damaged tooth pulp for any period of time can be dangerous and you could even end up losing the tooth altogether. The best idea is to go and talk to your doctor if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

Swollen or infected gums around a tooth
Pain chewing or biting down
Pain in or near a tooth, or sensitivity to hot and cold
A tooth that seems to be coming looser over time

Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of the area and then determine the best course of action to remedy your problem.
What Does Root Canal Treatment Involve?
After examination if your dentist or endodontist has determined that you require root canal treatment, they will then discuss the procedure with you. While the treatment can vary depending on the severity of the issue and the complexity of any restorative work required – for example, if a crown is needed – in general a root […]

All on 4 Dental Implants: The Quick And Easy Way To New Teeth

By |November 5th, 2014|Dentistry|0 Comments

Tired of your old dentures, or have broken, crumbling or painful teeth? Worried that you’re about to lose teeth and not sure which dental procedure might be right for you? All on 4 dental implants are the latest and most revolutionary way to get a full set on non-removable teeth in just a few days, with minimal hassle and no complicated ongoing maintenance routine. In this guide we explain what All on 4 dental implants are, why they may suit you better than other options and the procedure.
What Are All on 4 Dental Implants?
The reason for the name “All on 4” is because the replacement teeth that are fixed into place (also called an implant bridge) into your mouth are held in place by only 4 implants, minimising the amount of invasive surgery you may require. Because the implants are made out of very strong and durable titanium, the living bone in your jaw will grow on and around the implants, forming a long-lasting and secure bond. Not only will the new teeth fit your mouth and be perfectly in alignment, you will never have to take them out for any reason.

The All on 4 dental implants are normally suitable for the lower and upper cases, and may be recommended if you are unsuitable for other types of implants.
The Procedure
Once you have been assessed for suitability and your old teeth or dentures removed, at your first appointment your dentist will take a 3D computer scan of your mouth to determine the precise location for your new implants. The replacement teeth will then be created and set in wax. They will then be tried out in your mouth to ensure the correct fit and colour. […]
