A healthy mouth is a gateway to good health. Good functional teeth help in good nutrition. Research indicates that poor oral health can have a detrimental impact on your general well-being and may even increase your risk of stroke, heart disease and respiratory disease. Good and routine dental care helps restore your dental health and helps you re-establish your general well-being.
Gum disease or periodontitis is the main cause for tooth loss in adults. Periodontitis is the inflammation of the gums and other structures that support the teeth. It is caused by bacteria and is characterised by red, swollen, bleeding gums, loose teeth and bad breath. If periodontitis is left untreated it progresses and ultimately results in loss of teeth.
Plaque is the cause of gum disease, which makes it imperative that we maintain a high standard of oral hygiene. Plaque turns into calculus (sometimes called tartar) which bonds to the tooth so strongly that is can only be professionally removed. Regular brushing, flossing and rinsing with mouth wash accompanied by regular dental visits and cleans can help prevent gum disease.
Whilst it is always preferable to keep your teeth sometimes if a tooth is badly damaged by decay, injury, impacted or abscessed it may need to be extracted. If a tooth cannot be saved or is causing damage to adjacent teeth and tissues, removing it is then more beneficial. Extraction of teeth is a simple procedure that can be done in the dental chair under a local anesthetic. Sometimes the tooth may need to be split in order to assist in its removal (especially with impacted wisdom teeth and badly broken teeth). The procedure itself is pain free as a result of local anesthetic, however, you may experience some discomfort after the anesthetic wears off. This can be easily controlled by over-the-counter pain relief medication.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal is a familiar term for a dental procedure or endodontic therapy, wherein the infected pulp within the tooth is cleaned out, the space is disinfected and then filled.
Endodontic treatment is indicated on cracked, traumatised teeth, badly decayed teeth or teeth extremely painful to stimulus from hot foods, air or pressure.
Endodontic treatment can also be done on a previously treated tooth due to the following reasons:
- Recurrence of symptoms of pain
- Swelling or Dental Abscess
This procedure requires few sittings involving complete removal of infection, cleaning and disinfection of the previously infected area of the tooth and subsequent sealing of the tooth to avoid any recurrence of infection. The tooth is then restored to its original form by placing a filling thus restoring the function.
Commonly known as “Fillings” are materials filled inside the tooth which has lost its function, shape or integrity because of Decay, Fracture or a defective restoration
Restoration can be divided into two broad categories: Silver (Amalgam) fillings and Tooth Coloured or White restorations. In the past more emphasis was laid on Silver fillings when more advanced filling materials were not discovered.
We are a NO Amalgam Practice. Nowadays, in the aesthetic era of dentistry ‘Tooth coloured restorations’ have become the material of choice for a maximum number of patients who choose fillings matching the colour of their teeth.
The fillings are usually single visit treatment. A cavity is prepared in the tooth, and then a filling matching your tooth colour is placed and set. Finally, the dentist gives final touches with polishing to give you a bright shining smile.
Tooth Replacement Dental Service.
Teeth whitening is one of the most sought after method to boost confidence with a radiant smile. Watervale Dental now offers two ways to help you have whiter teeth, Take-home kit or in-office bleaching. In the In-office bleaching, after professionally cleaning your teeth, a resin barrier is applied to the gum areas surrounding the teeth to protect them from the whitening gel. Whitening gel is then placed directly on your teeth and will remain in contact with them for a total of 24 minutes consisting of approximately 3 x 8 minute applications. The whitening gel (hydrogen peroxide) is broken down and oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, and the stains are “dissolved”.
In the take home kit, impressions of your teeth are taken and custom trays (like mouth guard) to fit your teeth are fabricated. After which you will be given the tooth whitening gel and shown the method of application.
Before choosing to whiten your teeth it is important to get your teeth checked by a dentist to determine if your teeth are suitable for the treatment. Teeth whitening is not recommended for everyone because of various issues relating to gum and tooth sensitivity, the natural colour of a person’s teeth and presence of fillings, crowns and veneers.
Unlike many untrained operators offering teeth whitening treatments, only dentists are trained to assess a person’s suitability for the treatment. Without a proper assessment it is not possible to rule out any permanent side effects or other risks associated with the process such as heightened tooth sensitivity and gum problems.
When assessing your teeth for whitening, your dentist will:
Ensure your mouth is healthy before whitening commences
Look for grey or yellow discolouration and diagnose the cause of any discolouration
Discuss with you the best method to whiten your teeth
Advise if there are factors which may influence the whitening process (e.g. antibiotic staining)
Assess whether your fillings, crowns and veneers need replacement (as these won’t change colour)
Identify areas of gum recession
Discuss possible tooth sensitivity and how it may be managed.
Teeth whitening should only be carried out on people who have their adult teeth, unless otherwise advised by a dentist.heightened tooth sensitivity and gum problems.
Porcelain veneer is a thin layer of porcelain which is permanently bonded to the outer surface of the teeth. They can dramatically improve crooked, crowded, chipped and gappy smiles. We evaluate each tooth individually and place the restoration most appropriate to your needs. We also ensure your complete satisfaction with your aesthetic result by allowing for your input into the design, shape and colour of your veneers and crowns.
The treatment is done in two visits. In the first tooth is prepared and impressions taken. In the second visit the veneers are permanently bonded on your tooth.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is almost invisible teeth straightening treatment.
The treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable alignment teeth trays (aligners) that are changed every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dentist.
If you’re ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other treatment works as comfortably as Invisalign. Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life.
A denture is a removable appliance to replace missing teeth and tissue. There are two types of dentures, complete and partial.
Complete Dentures are a set of teeth that are made to replace all the teeth of the top or bottom jaw (sometimes both). Full Dentures are commonly referred to as false teeth and are generally made from acrylic plastic.
Partial Denture is a removable appliance, usually used to replace a few missing teeth in either upper or lower jaws. It can be made from acrylic plastic or metal framework. You can discuss about the type of denture that suits you best with our dentist.
When you are seeking information about dentures some important facts that you should know are:
- Dentures do not last forever.
- Though your denture fit perfectly, you should get it checked regularly from your dentist
- Dentures may take a little bit of getting used to, but you can eat normally and speak clearly with them.
- Never try to make your own denture repair
- Denture material is hard and durable but not permanent. You have to replace it after certain time period.
- Dentures may break if dropped.
- Because of meticulous care a natural appearance of denture teeth may change with diet, chewing and age.
- Dentures should not be painful or uncomfortable, if they are you should visit your dentist for an adjustment so they fit correctly.
Preventive care plays a major role in the overall oral, physical and psychological health of your child. Children have specific needs as they grow from infancy through their primary years and into teenage years.
Springs Dental Group encourages regular check-ups so our dentists are in a position to detect and eliminate any potential dental problems with your kids’ oral health.
During the different stages of life, you kids’ approach to dental care changes based on their unique needs. Springs Dental Group focusing on the individual needs customise the dental care so as to avoid current and future dental problems.
Springs Dental Group believes that good dental health and hygiene habits start from when our patients are babies and it is with that notion that our dentists not look after children’s dental needs but also encourage parents to lead and supervise their children’s tooth brushing approximately for the first 12 years, until motor and mental functions allow the child to routinely perform a proper tooth brushing technique alone.
Much like an adult, the onset of decay can lead to a multitude of problems, some relating to oral health, and some relating to overall well-being. Therefore, proper preventive oral care is very instrumental for your kids and their developing teeth, such as:
- Proper brushing and flossing techniques
- Regular cleanings and exams
- Healthy eating habits
- Fluoride treatments
- Early cavity detection
- Education on healthy daily habits
When to visit Dentist
Children’s first dental visit can start as early as 12- 18 months of age. It is good to take them along with you to the dentist when you have your own check-ups, so they get used to the environment. At the first appointment we ensure that child is familiar to a dental surgery set up. We give them a ride in dental chair and carry out an examination with mirror.
On their second visit minor treatments like fissure sealants and cleaning with a soft rubber polishing cup are carried out. Demonstration on right brushing techniques is also given in this visit. In saying that, every child is different and has different acceptance to dental treatment. Our dentists are cognizant of this fact and plan the treatment of each child accordingly.
Dental implants are a perfect solution to missing teeth. They offer a strong and durable replacement that is comparable to your natural teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is placed in your jaw. Once implants have been placed they can be used to support a single tooth crown, a bridge restoration or even secure dentures firmly in place giving you the confidence to eat again. Dental implants are ideal for people in good oral health who have lost one or more teeth.
We believe that sports play an important part in the life. Anyone who participates in sports is at a risk of injury. The Sports Medicine Association reports that 50% of children experience some form of dental injury. Therefore, it is important for you to protect your teeth and facial bone structure.
Watervale Dental believes that Precaution is better than Prevention and being proactive encourages players to get proper training, have appropriate equipment, safe playing areas and certainly the properly fitted personal protective equipment.
In contact sports, mouth guards plays a vital role in injury prevention. A well fitted mouth guard helps in absorbing the shock experienced by a blow to the face, which might otherwise result in an injury to the mouth or jaw. Teeth and Jaws related injuries can lead to long and potentially expensive treatments but a custom made mouth guard covers teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums.
Soft Drinks, Cordials and Carbonated Energy Drinks are high in sugar content and can cause dental caries. We encourage our patients to brush regularly and eat healthy food.
Regular screening by an experienced dentist eliminates the risk of potential dental problems. A pre-season dental examination ascertains players’ teeth are in good shape and there is no dental condition which without suitable treatment could increase the likelihood of facial and dental injuries.
