Protecting the health and appearance of your smile

The team here at Dental Care Australia recommend our patients visit our practice every six months for their dental check-up. Not only are regular dental check-ups beneficial for keeping your teeth looking good, there are also numerous overall health benefits. Our gentle team can examine the different elements of your smile.

Benefits of regular dental check-ups
  • Prevent the build-up of plaque which causes bad breath.
  • Potential dental issues can be quickly identified before they progress to a more serious and painful oral concern that could require surgery or permanent treatment options.
  • Gum disease could lead to infection of the gum and jawbone, and can easily be prevented.
  • Cavities and broken fillings can be addressed. If left untreated, these can result in the need for root canals or the needless removal of your teeth.
  • Potential oral cancers can be identified which can be highly curable if treated early.
During your dental check-up

Upon entering our practice our friendly staff will take every measure to make you feel comfortable and at ease, in and out of the dental chair. After you relax into our dental chair one of our dental professionals will discuss your oral health and your oral hygiene routine with you. One of our skilled dentists will then perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and soft tissues in your mouth.

During your consultation we can also perform an x-ray to help identify any potentially harmful conditions that may be in the early stages of development, such as decay. By assessing the health of the teeth, gums and soft tissues externally and internally with an x-ray we can ensure that your smile is healthy.

A dental partnership

Our dental professionals endeavour to make a healthy partnership with all of their patients. This partnership can allow our team to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed throughout your treatment. By facilitating this familiarity we can also help to ensure that our patients feel comfortable when discussing the potential treatments available to them, as well as understanding that we will always suggest the most suitable treatment for your dental health. For more information, or to book an appointment, contact us today.

Your dental health can be greatly improved by following a regime of basic preventative dental care. It is always worthwhile to go over the basics so here are a few simple rules:

  • Brush twice per day with a fluoride toothpaste
  • Visit a dentist every 6 months for your regular check-up and clean
  • Remove trapped food after meals (swill with water or use a floss)
  • Don't snack all day on refined carbohydrates (sugars)
  • Floss everytime you brush

Colgate offer some great educational video's for basic preventative dental care.

 
 

Everyone deserves to be happy with their teeth. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of your teeth from concealing small imperfections to a full ‘smile makeover’. Many people are unaware that through advancements in cosmetic dentistry, they can have the kind of smile they have often admired. Using the latest techniques, including teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, porcelain crowns, tooth-coloured inlays and porcelain laminate facings, we can give you the kind of smile that you have always wanted. The latest techniques are comfortable with long-lasting, natural-looking results that can make a dramatic difference in your appearance.

 
Bonding

For minor procedures, cosmetic bonding is a wonderful treatment. We can literally coat the teeth with special materials that allow us to smooth out rough surfaces, change colours, correct chipped teeth, alter contours, replace discoloured fillings or close spaces. The materials used for cosmetic bonding are stronger and last longer than ever before.

Contouring and reshaping

A painless procedure that helps to straighten crooked, chipped, cracked or overlapping teeth, often in combination with bonding or veneers.

Veneers / facings

Veneers are ultra-thin coatings that are bonded onto the front teeth to change the colour or shape of your teeth. There are two forms of veneers - porcelain (constructed in the lab) and composite (sculpted and placed by hand in the surgery). Patients who have broken teeth can take advantage of porcelain laminate facings. This service can literally change your smile in a week or so. This procedure is relatively simple and comfortable and is much less invasive than past techniques.

Onlays, crowns and bridges

Teeth which are damaged can be restored with onlays, crowns and bridges. Massive advancements in material technology in dentistry mean that we can now provide patients with teeth that look, feel and behave exactly like natural teeth. This is normally the dentists decision but you can be involved in selecting the right material for you. When a tooth is damaged, the damaged areas can be removed by the dentist. An impression is taken at this point so that an Australian dental laboratory can manufacture the right restoration for you.

Teeth Whitening

Many of our patients have expressed an interest in having a brighter, more attractive smile. They have been surprised that cosmetic dentistry can make such a dramatic difference in their smile, both comfortably and in only a few appointments. With teeth whitening you can have a brand new smile within just a couple of visits.Many people find whitening to be easy and convenient because most of the treatment can be done at home. 

Replacing amalgams

Amalgam replacement should be done when the fillings are worn or broken. Another reason to replace amalgam is to achieve preferable aesthetics – many people do not like the appearance of amalgam fillings. However, research has shown that the amount of mercury you are exposed to from your fillings is less than the amount that most people are exposed to in their daily environment or in the food they eat so there is no reason to believe that removing amalgam is necessary for the good of your health and amalgam allergies are extremely rare.

Invisalign

Sometimes orthodontics (in particular Invisalign) can be used to position teeth for maximum cosmetic effect before the above procedures.


Dental Crowns and Teeth Caps

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth covering the tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and to improve its appearance. When the crowns are cemented into place it fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.


Why is a dental crown needed?

A dental crown is used to do any of the following:

  1. To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severly worn down
  2. To protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  3. To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
  4. To cover a dental implant
  5. To cover misshaped or severely discoloured teeth
     
How long will my Dental Crown Last?

In our clinics, we are confident with our dental crowns that as long as the patient routinely visits a dentist to ensure good dental hygiene, we are prepared to replace any dental crown that fractures within 5 years after its placement. Most labs are not prepared to do that.
    

How many visits will my Dental Crown take?

Treatment appointments are typically broken up into 2 separate visits. At the first visit, our Dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any broken or decayed enamel. They then take a digital impression of the tooth as well as the rest of your mouth, to ensure that your new crown will fit and bite in proper alignment with the other teeth in your mouth. These models are sent to our dental laboratory downstairs where a custom Australian made crown is produced according to our Dentists specifications. Within about 2 weeks, your permanent crown will be ready. Your visit is short and very comfortable, and as soon as it is completed you will have a brand new, functioning tooth. We won’t ever rush you out of the office, and you can rest assured that Dental Care Australia treatments will give you a reason to smile again.

How much does a Dental Crown Cost?
  • At Dental Care Australia, we believe in providing quality Dentistry at an affordable rate. We are proud to offer some of the most cost effective crowns within Sydney, Hills District and Castle Hill. The average cost can range between $1500 and $2500. Currently for a limited time we are offering our in-house dental crowns for $999, with a 5 year limited warranty. *
  • *5 years Limited Warranty key conditions: Patient has to retain their receipt and have twice a year routine 6 monthly dental check-up and cleans at our Castle Hill practice during the warranty period. The warranty will cover for a free replacement of the same Dental Crown restoration if it failed due mechanical failures only, such as fractures or de-bonds. The warranty however, does not extend to trauma/accident related failures, dental decays, gum diseases, or a need for root canal therapy otherwise recommended by the treating dentist prior to the commencement of treatment.

What other dental options are available?

There are many restorative options available to help you achieve the smile you would like. At Dental Care Australia our experienced Dentist will discuss with you entire options and help tailor your personal treatment plan that provides the best outcome related to your individualised goals.
 

Crown Treatment Should Never Be Delayed

Putting off treatment for a dental crown can allow weak tooth enamel to break apart, exposing the nerve or even fracturing the tooth beyond repair. If you suspect that your tooth has broken, or you have had a filling fall out, please call our office at your earliest convenience. The quicker you seek out treatment, the more likely you are to be able to preserve your tooth. Call Dental Care Australia today, and let us help you repair your teeth so that you can get back to enjoying a healthy smile!

Dental Implants

Dental implant restorations are so natural-looking and feeling that you will forget you ever lost a tooth! Dental implants replace missing teeth and are designed to look like and function in a similar way to natural teeth without compromising any of the remaining teeth. Implants replace both the 'root' and the 'crown' of the tooth in positions similar to those teeth that have been lost. The jaw bone bonds with the implant, anchoring it to the bone. Implants have a high success rate and can be used to replace a single tooth, a few teeth or as an alternative to a full set of dentures. An implant retained denture is a fixed type of denture, meaning it is more stable.

If you are a suitable candidate then Implant treatment follows a few stages over a number of months. In more complicated cases, the process can take up to 12 months to integrate a successful treatment plan. Some of the benefits of implant dentistry are listed below:

Patient Benefits
  1. Cost effective: Because only one tooth is replaced rather than the three teeth of a bridge, dental implants can cost less than the traditional bridgework.
  2. Tooth-saving: Dental implants do not sacrifice adjacent teeth since neighbouring teeth are not employed to support an implant. Healthy teeth are left untouched!
  3. Comfort: Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence. They are secure and will not click or wobble like removable dentures.
  4. Reliable: The success rate for dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.

Other Useful Information

Australians and Sport: Are You Protected?

Sport, leisure and recreation activities are the most common cause of dental injuries. According to the 1990 report "Sports injuries in Australia, Causes, Costs and Prevention", sports injuries cost Australia about $1.4 billion per year.  Between 30-50% of these injuries are preventable. A blow to the mouth can cause damage to the teeth and gums which may require extensive dental treatment for the rest of a person’s life. A blow to the lower jaw may also result in concussion.The Australian Dental Association recommends that anyone who participates in a sport that carries a risk of contact to the face should wear a mouthguard. 

This includes sports such as:

  • Football
  • Boxing
  • Basketball
  • Hockey
  • Ice hockey
  • Netball
  • Softball
  • Soccer

Below are a few examples of dental injuries:

  • Cut lips, gums, cheeks or face
  • Injuries to the tongue
  • Chipped, broken or knocked out teeth
  • Broken jaw
  • Concussion or being ‘knocked out’

Mouthguard Types

There are several types of mouthguard available on the market. The ADA also recommends that your mouthguard be fitted by a dental professional, rather than use an over-the-counter, 'boil and bite' mouthguard.

The Dangers of 'Boil & Bite' or 'Stock' Mouthguards

Cheap over-the-counter mouthguards are available from some sports store and pharmacies. These fall into two categories - the stock mouthguard and the ‘boil & bite’ variety. Stock mouthguards are supplied in only one shape while 'boil & bite' mouthguards are made of a plastic which is softened in hot water and molded by placing in the mouth. Over-the-counter mouthguards are often ineffective as they do not accurately match the player’s dentition. They are bulky and often cause discomfort or make it difficult for the player to breathe properly.

 

Race Guard - the Ultimate Protection

The best way to protect your teeth from injury is by using a custom-fitted Race Guard. Race Guards are comfortable to wear and fit your teeth accurately, meaning that they will sit comfortably in your mouth and cause minimal interference to speaking or breathing.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do the mouthguards feel bulky in the mouth?

Race Guards are very thin to avoid interference with the function of your mouth (speaking and breathing) whilst playing sport. However the tough thermoplastic layering means that the guard provides exceptionally good protection. This is very different to over the counter mouthguards which protect through thickness.

How long does it take to make my mouthguard?

From the date of your impression you will have a mouthguard in 6 business days!

Is it painful to have a mouthguard fitted?

Being fitted for a custom mouthguard involves visiting a dentist, who will take an impression of your teeth using a putty-like material. The process is quite quick and should involve very little discomfort.

What makes Race Guards a good choice?

Race Guards are manufactured in Australia using only materials which have been approved by the Theraputic Goods Administration. Their expert dental technicians are able to ensure that your mouthguard fits your mouth well, for maximum comfort and protection. They are also a 100% Australian-owned company and are committed to supporting Australian business.

Where can I order a Race Guard?

Race Guards can only be fitted by a qualified dental professional. At Dental Care Australia, we can help you order them. Simply call 1300 361 456 or visit our website to make an appointment for your mouthguards.

My child has braces, is a mouthguard still suitable?

Children with braces or other fixed orthodontic devices may be able to wear a mouthguard, however this will depend on their specific needs. Mouthguards for children with braces must be designed with care, and we recommend that you visit our practice, our Dentists will be able to advise you.

It is generally recommended that children with removable orthodontic devices do not wear these whilst playing sport.

Where can I get more information? 

For more information about Race Guard, feel free to contact us on 1300 361 456. If you would like specific pricing information before ordering a mouthguard or regarding your special circumstances, please contact one of our dentists, as they are expertly qualified to assess your individual situation.

Dentures are an excellent choice for tooth restoration if you decide to have your natural teeth removed as you come to a time when you can be better served by brand new teeth than your natural teeth. Complete dentures replace your missing teeth and your smile. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. You’ll be able to eat and speak—things that people often take for granted with their natural teeth.

There are various types of denture. A full denture is made and placed in the patient’s mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed which may take several months. An immediate can be placed as soon as the remaining teeth are removed.

Even if you wear full dentures, you still must take good care of your mouth. Brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque. Furthermore, dentures should be relined every 3-5 years because the bone will resorb (change shape and reduce) which will lead to a smaller gap between nose and chin and increased reliance on muscle rather than bone to support the denture - which actually speeds up resorption. There are many options around how to restore your teeth and your dentist will be the best placed to advise over which is most suitable.

 
Standard Acrylic Dentures

Standard Acrylic Dentures

Ideal for: Patients with no teeth or who plan to have all teeth removed.

Benefits: With all teeth removed the mouth is a more stable place for a denture which means greater comfort over time.

A regular denture rests on the gums, and is held in place by suction. These dentures are trimmed to be a comfortable fit and are easily removed for cleaning.

Valplast Flexible Partial Dentures

Valplast Flexible Dentures

Ideal for: Patients who still have and intend to keep some of their natural teeth.

Benefits: Valplast flexible partial dentures cost less than dental implants and dental bridges and they require no surgery or invasive procedures. Compared to traditional metal partial dentures, Valplast® offers better aesthetics, comfort and durability. Made from an unbreakable nylon resin each Valplast® restoration comes with a lifetime guarantee against breakage and fracture on the resin base.

When considering a removable partial, many people find the Valplast® Flexible Partial Dentures to be the most comfortable option, and the final restoration can be made very quickly. While the cost may be higher than a partial made with visible metal clasps, the results of the flexible partial are excellent, and patient satisfaction is very high. The Valplast® Flexible Partial involves only non-invasive procedures, and gives you confidence in your restoration while talking, eating and most importantly, smiling!

A great number of patients request vaplast flexible partial dentures from us for a variety of reasons such as the following:

  • It is comfortable to wear.
  • The procedure involved is non-invasive.
  • Cost effective.
  • Virtually appealing as it is almost invisible.
  • Guaranteed to lasts for a lifetime.

Partial dentures may feel awkward in the beginning, but this is just normal. With our help, you will become more comfortable in wearing the denture. We do not only make dentures, but we also give you the right instructions on how to wear and take care of them. 

We also perform adjustments when necessary to make sure that the denture will not cause pressure or soreness in your mouth. Adjustments are required over time, especially as your mouth goes through changes. For instance, gum ridges and bones can shrink leading to loose-fitting denture.

Valplast / Chrome Dentures

Chrome Dentures

Ideal for: Patients who still have and intend to keep some of their natural teeth

Benefits: Combines the thinness of Chrome in areas which are not visible with the aesthetics of gum coloured Valplast to achieve the best of both worlds in terms of fit and appearance.

Everyone always wants the best of both worlds. Chrome dentures are thinner and consequently more comfortable and less noticeable in the mouth but are made of chrome – which does not blend well with teeth or gums. Valplast on the other hand is visually un-noticeable in the mouth but is slightly thicker than chrome, which means it is more noticeable in your mouth in terms of fit and feel. Combining these two materials allows us to give you the best of both worlds by using the chrome in areas which are not visible but where a comfortable fit is most important and the Valplast in areas which are visible and do not demand thin materals to deliver comfort. We specialise not only in making the denture teeth, but also forming the Chrome and Valplast framework.

Immediate Dentures (Sometimes called Temporary Dentures)

Immediate Dentures

Ideal for: Patients that are concerned about going without their smile after tooth extraction during the period when the gum bone resorbs and changes shape before a permanent denture can be fitted.

Benefits: Fills the period between tooth extraction and permanent denture placement with a smile!

This is a temporary smile which allows your gums to heal after tooth extraction. Once your gums are healed we can get a good impression of your gums in their new shape and produce a comfortable fitting denture of your choice. These dentures can be retained as a spare set in case you damage your permanent dentures – You won’t need temporaries whilst we perform relines or most repairs because with a dental laboratory on-site, this can be done while you wait!

Imlpant Retained Dentures

Implant Retained Dentures

Ideal for: Patients with no teeth or who intend to have all teeth removed and where a semi-fixed denture is more suitable or preferable.

Benefits: As a semi-fixed denture this solution is more stable and feels much more natural in the mouth.

Implant retained dentures are supported by and attached to implants. An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.

How Does It Work? There are two types of implant-supported dentures: bar-retained and ball-retained. In both cases, the denture will be made of an acrylic base that will look like gums. Porcelain or acrylic teeth that look like natural teeth are attached to the base. Both types of dentures need at least two implants for support.

Cosmetic Dentures

Cosmetic Dentures

Ideal for: Patients that have no teeth or intend to have all teeth removed to whom life like aesthetics are important.

Benefits: The most accurate and life like match for natural teeth.

Cosmetic dentures are built by hand using premium materials and curing techniques to deliver the most accurate and lifelike restoration of and even improvement of your natural smile. Using staining and glazing techniques that allow for layers of colour to be built up in the tooth and gum coloured materials the finish is natural and lifelike when compared to the more solid colouration of other denture solutions.

Denture Relines & Repairs

Relines and Repairs while you wait

As we age, our mouths change and this can cause dentures to loosen. This can cause difficulty chewing and painful rubbing. A fast, easy reline is what we do. If you are experiencing discomfort or loose fitting dentures, we can reline and repair to make them work properly.

  • Increasing retention of old, existing dentures or new dentures that for one reason or another have lost retention.
  • Sometimes this may be due to recent extractions or alterations in the gum tissue due to other surgical procedures.
  • Relining of old dentures hoping to avoid the necessity of remaking them entirely.
  • Gum tissue conditioning that relies on the gentle action of soft tissue materials, such as soft liners, to allow gum tissue to return to a proper state of health prior to the fabrication of new dentures.

If you have tender gums and/or sore spots, a soft reline can be done which can last a year or two. In this case, the denture is simply relined with a soft, pliable substance that makes it easier to wear the denture without pain. However, this may not always fix the problem as other issues may also be wrong in your mouth. It’s always best to consult the specialist to see what is best recommended for your specific situation.

Once you have become our customer, we will look after your teeth and mouth for life. We will take care of any repairs and relines and offer continual advice and support. 



Dental Care Australia use Colgate Platinum Professional Teeth whitening kits
which can only be supplied by a dentist. The dentist will supply you with a custom made tray which will fit snugly around your teeth, this is produced from a digital impression of your teeth (which means no uncomfortable, foul tasting impression material in your mouth). The dentist will call you back to check the fit of the tray and provide you with the materials to whiten your teeth.

Teeth whitening is one of the many procedures in cosmetic dentistry, and there are a number of systems in use to whiten teeth. The system we use here, and the one we really recommend is called the COLGATE Platnium Professional Teeth Whitening system.

This system is much better than the others out there because it actually works. We recommend COLGATE so highly because we have done it on ourselves and on many patients with great results.

The drawbacks of teeth whitening systems such as in chair  Intensive Light Treatments, which we don’t do here, are that they may do some tooth damage. They make the teeth look whiter for a week or two, and then the teeth will go back to a darker shade. In short, the results are very short term and you would need to keep going back to keep up your whitening look. These systems create sensitivity in patients teeth during the procedure and in some cases for weeks after.

With the COLGATE system, the patient wears the custom-made trays for 30 minutes a day on their teeth. The special gel placed in the trays goes through your enamel and breaks down stains, including intrinsic staining, which makes the results last.

Colgate Visible White is the only professional whitening system by Colgate. The system is clinically proven to deliver fast, safe and effective whitening results while removing both surface and embedded teeth stains. It is scientifically formulated to prevent dehydration of the teeth and it has a neutral pH for safe whitening. The full kit provides patients with a sleek, portable, reusable carrying case allowing them to make use of the kit long after the treatment is done.

The main benefit is that the system really works and the results last. With COLGATE, a patient can whiten their teeth up to 10 shades. We’ve seen those results here at the office. The whole procedure takes up to 10 days, and you can see the initial results overnight.

*We recommend redoing 30 mins every month from the stage you are happy with the result

Teeth whitening has become one of the number one cosmetic procedures performed in our Castle Hill area office. The reason is simple. Teeth whitening is fast, effective, and affordable. After using our professional at-home teeth whitening kits, patients are left with a whiter and brighter smile.

 
Why whiten the smile?

Your smile is often someone’s first look at your personality. A smile can convey a lot: happiness, success, friendliness, and empathy. It’s important for your first impression to be a warm, beautiful smile. When you have white teeth, people will simply notice your beautiful smile, versus the individual components. However, if you have stained, dingy, or dull teeth, that is probably all someone will be able to see.

In many cases, patients seek whitening services for a specific event. Perhaps you are heading to a wedding, or an upcoming reunion. A newly whitened smile can help you feel confident and attractive. The best part is with proper care; your whitened smile can last for a long time. 

What are the whitening options?

We understand that you have options when it comes to choosing how to whiten your teeth. There are many over the counter options readily available at your local supermarket or chemist, which can be extremely enticing. The problem is with the bleaching agent. Over-the-counter methods do not have the bleaching power of professional methods. There’s a good chance you’ll be disappointed in the results and you will visit our office looking for professional alternatives.

We offer at-home professional whitening kits. You simply wear the custom-made trays for a specified period each day, and after two weeks, you will have a noticeably whiter smile. In addition, you can keep the trays for periodic touch-ups as needed (up to 1 year supply if measured out correctly). 

Candidates for whitening treatment

In order to receive whitening treatments, you must have good oral health. Any issues with cavities or gum disease will need to be addressed prior to starting treatment. In addition, patients with multiple restorations such as crowns or fillings may not be good candidates, as restorations do not respond to whitening treatments.

*For patients under 18, a consulting with your health care professional is recommended.

Teeth whitening at Dental Care Australia in Castle Hill,  is one of many cosmetic dentistry offerings available. Unlike traditional dentists,  our doctors only offers at-home teeth whitening with the COLGATE teeth whitening system.

The gel is placed in the trays, and the trays are worn 30minutes per day for up to 10 days. Results are seen after the first night, and the whitening continues to progress (wearing times may vary from patient to patient).

COLGATE teeth whitening system is a long-lasting whitening option for many who are looking for long-term results from their dentist. Unlike other in chair teeth whitening systems, COLGATE eliminates the problem of sensitive teeth, and instead of making teeth look whiter for a short period of time, with continued treatments, patients utilizing COLGATE will find that their teeth will continue to be brighter, whiter, and more brilliant than they ever were before!

Considering teeth whitening? Book an appointment with one of our doctors in Castle Hill to find out if COLGATE teeth whitening can help give you the whiter, brighter smile you've always desired. 

 

Reasons why Castle Hill area residents should choose professional home teeth whitening

As you get older, you may notice that your smile isn't as sparkling white as it was in your younger years. In fact, you may even notice that your smile is beginning to look a little dull or yellow. Stains can often sneak up on us over time. Years of exposure to certain foods, beverages, medications, and habits can slowly turn our smile from dazzling to dingy. Even people who practice excellent oral hygiene and stay regular with dental visits may not completely avoid the effect of the aging process on teeth. Since discoloration is nearly impossible to avoid, teeth whitening has become one of the most sought after cosmetic dental solutions that we offer.

Tooth enamel is porous which means it will absorb stain-causing molecules present in certain drinks and foods. To combat this, many patients turn to over the counter whitening products. If you've ever been in the whitening section of the supermarket and pharmacy, you know there are many options for toothpastes, gels, and other products that promise a polished, sparkling white smile. Many patients in the Castle Hill area come to our office wondering if these methods are worth trying.

Whitening Toothpastes
The truth is whitening toothpastes and gels can work to a certain extent. These products typically contain some sort of abrasive to remove the stains from the top layer of the enamel. While they can effectively remove surface stains, they cannot tackle the deep stains or whiten teeth beyond their natural shade.

Whitening Strips
Most patients are disappointed with the results from whitening strips. These options are one size fits all, which means patients are often left with uneven whitening. In addition, contact with the gums can also cause increased sensitivity or irritation.

For those who are truly interested in an at-home whitening solution, we offer professional grade solutions. These custom fitted trays will ensure that you receive even whitening while also protecting the gum tissue. The bleaching gel in professional grade solutions can help you achieve a smile that is multiple shades whiter in just a few short weeks.

Snoring and sleep apnoea, the facts:

If you snore, you’re not alone.

  • Snoring affects 34% of the adult population
  • As many as 60% of men over 40 snore
  • Snoring significantly increases after age 35
  • 60% of men and 40% of women between 41 and 65 are habitual snorers

 

What causes snoring?

Most typically, snoring is caused by poor muscle tone and extra tissue in the tongue and throat. This causes the tongue to relax and fall backwards in the throat, resulting in restricted airflow and vibration of the soft tissues in the back of the mouth.

 

Should you be concerned?

Yes. In the short-term, snoring causes headaches and leads to lack of productivity. Long-term, chronic snorers tend to develop high blood pressure and are more apt to have heart and lung problems than non-snorers. A study published in the August 2000 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine finds that people who snore loudly – in the absence of other risk factors for sleep- disordered breathing, such as obesity – are 11/12 times likely more that others to have high blood pressure.

 

What is obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA)?

The most advanced symptom of snoring is called obstructive sleep apnoea or OSA. OSA is an interruption of breathing during sleep caused by the tongue and/or excessive tissue completely blocking the airway. When breathing stops, air is prevented from entering the lungs, causing the heart to work harder and circulate blood throughout the body. Eventually, OSA can cause high blood pressure, irregular heartbeats or even heart failure.

 

What does snoring have to do with my dentist?

Often, the tell-tale signs of snoring like throat irritation and other symptoms are evident in the course of dental examination. If your Dentist suspects that you have obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), he/she may refer you to a physician for a more definite diagnosis. The physician may request that overnight sleep study be conducted to determine the appropriate course of treatment.

 

Treating snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea with oral appliances.

OSA is classified as mild, moderate or severe and the treatment plan is dictated by the severity of the symptoms. Oral appliances are fit by our Dentist and are worn while sleeping. The mandibular appliance holds the lower jaw forward advancing the tongue and increasing airway space.

 

Oral appliances offer significant benefits to patient:
  • 80% of snores find an appliance stops or reduces noise level to an acceptable level.
  • 80% of patients with mild to moderate OSA receive good to excellent results with an oral appliance.
  • Most patients report they feel more alert and energetic the day after wearing an oral appliance and the snoring appliance has been medically proven to improve your quality of life activities.

 

Snoring appliances are comfortable and easy-to-use oral appliance.

 
How the snoring appliance works

Snoring appliances consists of 2 trays custom made to your dental impression which fit over the upper and lower teeth. A hook mechanism attached to the upper tray mates with a shelf in the lower tray and allows the jaw to be positioned forward, preventing the soft tissue of the throat and tongue from collapsing into the airway. Since snoring occurs when air is forced through narrowed or nearly closed breathing passages, positioning the jaw forward will enable you to breathe easily and stop snoring.

 

A breakthrough oral appliance.

Designed for comfort, easy fit and simple adjustment the snoring is a breakthrough in the treatment of OSA and snoring. It’s unique two piece design gives you amazing lateral and controlled vertical jaw movement for comfort when wearing the snoring appliance. It can easily be adjusted while in your mouth.

Because snoring appliances been scientifically proven in Australian NHMRC randomised control study to be safe, highly effective in the treatment of not only snoring but mild-moderate sleep apnoea, it now the dental appliance of choice.

The snoring appliance is easy and comfortable for you to wear nightly

Root canal treatment (also known as endodontic therapy, endodontic treatment, or root canal therapy) is a treatment sequence for the infected pulp of a tooth which is intended to result in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. Root canals, and their associated pulp chamber, are the physical hollows within a tooth that are naturally inhabited by nerve tissue, blood vessels and other cellular entities. Together, these items constitute the dental pulp.

Endodontic therapy involves the removal of these structures, disinfection and the subsequent shaping, cleaning, and decontamination of the hollows with small files and irrigating solutions, and the obturation (filling) of the decontaminated canals. Filling of the cleaned and decontaminated canals is done with an inert filling such as gutta-percha and typically a Zinc oxide eugenol-based cement. Epoxy resin is employed to bind gutta-percha in some root canal procedures. Another option is to use an antiseptic filling material containing paraformaldehyde like N2. Endodontics includes both primary and secondary endodontic treatments as well as periradicular surgery which is generally used for teeth that still have potential for salvage.
