What dental treatments are available at our dental centre?
Invisalign is a clear alternative to braces which uses a series of custom-fitted aligners. These help patients improve their smile and align their teeth by moving them into their ideal positions.
Dental implants are an excellent replacement for missing teeth. Not to mention that they also provide a fixed solution for patients who have removable partial or complete dentures.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers the whole surface of your tooth, restoring it to its original shape and size. This not only protects your tooth from further damage but also strengthens the structure of your tooth.
Teeth whitening is an easy and quick dental procedure that can change the colour of your tooth enamel, and refresh your smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why straighten teeth?
There are many benefits to having straighter teeth, including improved speaking and chewing function, increased confidence, and a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Further, straight teeth can help prevent a variety of oral problems.
There are four types of malocclusion: overcrowding, crossbite, underbite, and overbite. All of these alignment problems negatively affect the appearance and function of your teeth.
There are two ways to straighten teeth: customised aligning trays and orthodontic braces. Orthodontic braces are typically worn for a set amount of time. Removable aligning trays are for patients with less severe malocclusion who only need to move their teeth a shorter distance.
If you have questions concerning getting your teeth straightened, please call us.
What are the symptoms and signs of periodontal disease?
- Discomfort or tenderness – bacteria and plaque irritate the teeth and gums
- Receding gums
- Pus around the gums and teeth
- Loose teeth – also caused by loss of bones
- Bleeding gums
- New spacing between teeth – caused by loss of bones
- Swollen and red gums – gums should never be swollen or red
Going to the dentist regularly, eating healthy foods, and keeping your teeth clean can help decrease your chances of getting periodontal disease.
