White Fillings Root Canals Dentures Gum Disease Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Dietary Advice Oral Health Instruction Bad Breath (Halitosis) White Fillings In the past, dentists used to place amalgam fillings in teeth. These fillings last well but are unsightly & can be visible when laughing or speaking. The white filling materials of the past tend to have a short life expectancy & their aesthetic qualities were not too good. With improvements in dental technology, the new generation of white filing materials not only look good but last for years. Replacing your old amalgam fillings with new White Fillings can instantly make your mouth look fresher & feel healthier. Root Canals Though root canal therapy has a reputation as a painful procedure, in fact it’s designed to relieve the pain caused by an infected tooth. Root canal therapy is a complex and technically demanding procedure, but one which, when performed well, has a very high success rate. Root canal therapy is usually a simple procedure with little or no discomfort; most of our patients find it’s as unobtrusive as getting a filling. Dentures Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. They are typically made out of either acrylic or metal. If you’ve lost or are losing all of your teeth, a complete, or full arch, denture may be the solution for you. If some of your teeth remain and are healthy, a partial denture may be your path to a great smile. Lastly, an over-denture can be made, where precision attachments are fitted to either an implant or a tooth root, can be used to secure the denture - thereby improving its function and fit. Properly maintained, each of these dentures will appear natural and provide a perfect smile. Gum Disease Periodontal or gum diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis are serious infections that if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. The main cause of periodontal disease is bacterial plaque, although smoking, stress, diet and other factors can also affect the health of your gums. Regular checkups and scale and cleans with Enhanced Dental Studios can help alleviate the risk and severity of gum disease. Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Snoring can often be more than just a noisy nuisance for a loved one or partner. It can also be the sign of a more serious medical condition called obstructive sleep apnoea, or OSA. Many snorers are unaware that they suffer from OSA but fortunately, it is a treatable condition. Treatments for snoring vary greatly from simple measures and precautions to surgery. There are a wide range of surgeries performed to help control snoring. To find out more about obstructive sleep apnoea and to discuss your options, schedule a consultation appointment with Enhanced Dental Studios. Dietary Advice The food and drink we consume is just as important to the health of teeth and gums as it is for our overall health. Foods and drinks with high levels of starch and sugar produce acid in the mouth, attacking tooth enamel and causing decay and potential tooth loss. Reducing your intake of sugary and starchy drinks and snacks is an important first step towards optimal oral health. Instead, try snacking on foods such as cheese, nuts and fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as chewing sugar-free gum and rinsing with water after eating. Oral Health Instruction An effective oral hygiene routine is vital in maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. Brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing at least once a day, together with regular professional cleaning appointments with your Enhanced Dental Studios team, will keep your teeth and gums healthy and your breath fresh. Bad Breath (Halitosis) Most of us suffer from bad breath occasionally, although it may affect up to a quarter of adults on a regular basis. Bad breath is usually caused by bacteria breaking down proteins somewhere in the mouth. Halitosis is most often a result of a problem in the mouth, a visit to your dentist should be the first line of treatment. Most problems with bad breath can be remedied with simple cleaning of the teeth and gums and some good oral hygiene instruction.
