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 mouthlook fresher & feel healthier.
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 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 overdenture can be made, where precision attachments are fitted to either a 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.
Periodontal or gum diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are serious infections that, 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 Aesthetic Dental can help alleviate the risk and serverity of gum disease.
Snoring & Sleep Apnoea
Snoring can often be more than just a noisy nuisance. 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.
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.
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 Aesthetic Dental team, will keep your teeth and gums healthy and your breath fresh.
