Dentures & Denture Care
If you suffer from tooth loss, you may want to consider replacing them with dentures or denture implants.
They imitate natural teeth in both appearance and function and are designed to help you live a normal life and give you the confidence of having a full set of teeth again.
Dental implants restore your dental health by normalising your bite pattern and protecting the integrity of your jawbone and adjacent teeth.
They fit into your jawbone and hold crowns (or bridge) in place, in the same way, that roots support natural teeth.
For every 1 out of 100 people that snore, the symptoms they experience are the result of a harmful and possibly life-threatening sleep disorder called sleep apnoea.
The most common form of sleep apnoea is called obstructive sleep apnoea.
Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) occurs when a person frequently stops breathing for as long as 10 seconds or longer during sleep as a result of an obstruction in the breathing airway.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or TMD, is a set of symptoms associated with the joint connecting the lower jaw to the skull.
The best approach is to organise a diagnosis with your healthcare physicians and your dentist. They may collaborate to determine the problem and create a treatment plan that suits your diagnosis and symptoms.
Because causes of TMD can significantly vary, it is important to rule out all possible causes before moving forward with a treatment plan.
Laser dentistry is painless and is not harmful to the oral tissue or teeth. When appropriate, it can be used in combination with, or as a substitute for, cosmetic dentistry.
LASER stands for “light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation.”
The instrument creates light energy in a very narrow and focused beam. This laser light produces a reaction when it hits tissue, allowing it to remove or shape the tissue.
Broken or lost teeth are a common result of injury and trauma to the mouth.
In many cases, this occurs when a person is engaged in sports or active physical hobbies.
Fortunately, broken or lost teeth can usually be avoided by wearing a mouthguard. Some sports that involve heavy contact may require players to wear a mouthguard as part of the safety protocol.
