ORTHODONTIC CERAMIC BRACES

At some point, most people decide to undergo some form of teeth straightening because they want to have a beautiful smile. With some of the latest orthodontic technologies, getting straighter teeth has never been easier. Ceramic braces have become quite popular, and they offer several advantages over other forms of treatment. Straighter Teeth with Ceramic Braces Many patients choose ceramic braces because they work like the metal alternatives. They use the same types of wires and brackets, and the brackets must be bonded to your teeth. However, the major difference is the appearance. These braces are often the preferred choice because they’re designed to blend well with your natural teeth. Unlike metal, the ceramic material is colored to look like your real teeth, which is why it’s much more difficult to tell if someone is wearing ceramic braces. What are the Benefits? The greatest benefit of choosing ceramic braces is improved aesthetics, and although they function just as well as their metal counterparts, they’re less noticeable. They are strong enough to last throughout your treatment, and they offer a greater level of comfort than you’d get from metal braces. One of the top reasons why patients choose braces made with ceramic material is because the components don’t stain. They’re also less likely to irritate your gums, which makes them less painful to wear. Another major benefit is bracket choice. Ceramic braces are available with semi-translucent brackets, which look much better with white teeth. However, they can even have tooth-colored ceramic material, which works best for darker teeth. When compared with the alternatives, braces made with ceramic tend to be much better at blending in with your natural teeth, and despite their subtle nature, they’re also very strong. Many patients make the mistake of assuming ceramic braces are like plastic aligners. When compared with plastic aligners, ceramic braces deliver a much faster treatment and have the ability to move teeth quickly. Learn More During an Orthodontic Appointment One of the great things about ceramic braces is that people can undergo orthodontic correction without it being obvious to others that they are doing it. This has led to many more individuals deciding to pursue teeth straightening that maybe wouldn’t have in the past.

ORTHODONTIC LINGUAL BRACES

There are so many options available to people who want to get their teeth straightened, but one you may not have thought of is lingual braces. What are lingual braces and how do they differ from the other types of braces? With 4.5 million people in the United States currently wearing braces or some other appliance in pursuit to straighten their teeth and keep their mouth beautiful, it is vital. And it's not just important for kids; of those millions, health insurance company Humana says at least 25 percent of them are adults. What Are Lingual Braces? Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth (by the tongue and palate), rather than in front, and therefore offer a great cosmetic alternative for those who want their teeth straightened, without the braces showing. The process for lingual braces involves taking an impression of the teeth, which is then sent to a dental laboratory and used to create customized brackets. The process takes about six weeks and, once complete, allows the orthodontist to use a specific process to cement the braces onto the back surfaces of your teeth. Like traditional braces, this product works by applying gentle yet continuous pressure on the teeth, to help them slowly shift into proper position. The treatment can take anywhere from 18-36 months, depending on the severity of a patient's overcrowding of teeth or their bite. Braces are definitely worth the investment, but lingual braces have special requirements. Because they're custom made, they cost a bit more and treatment tends to be more involved. One of the biggest factors to consider is the cost of the materials; each tooth has its own installment of brackets and arch wires. With costs of $5,000 or more, find out which type of lingual braces would be most effective for your family. Not all orthodontists offer lingual braces because training and technical expertise are needed. The American Lingual Association of Orthodontists represents orthodontists dedicated to using the lingual braces procedure. Types of Lingual Braces Your choice of brand depends upon the orthodontist and his recommendation, as well as your preference. Regardless of the developer, the oral appliance device works in the same way. The difference is in the design and how the braces are attached and secured on the back of the teeth. Some of the most popular brands are: Incognito iBraces In-Ovation STb Light Lingual System Suresmile Lingual QT Taking Care of Lingual Braces As with any orthodontic appliance, good oral hygiene is essential to ensure that gingivitis or tooth decay don't creep in. Proper dental hygiene should include: Brushing twice a day for at least two minutes. Using a soft round-bristle toothbrush to brush at the gumline and the teeth. Flossing daily (floss threader can also be used) or an interproximal brush (if space between the teeth is present) to remove plaque and food debris between the teeth. Using an oral irrigation device to help flush out food debris around the brackets and teeth. Rinsing with a fluoride rinse to strengthen the teeth. Lingual braces may also irritate the tongue and may cause it to become tender. Using wax against the lower teeth to cover the braces can help alleviate this soreness. Some people find speaking clearly and enunciating more difficult while wearing lingual braces. With enough practice, wearers get used to the feel of the braces on the backs of their teeth, and talking normally is a snap. Ultimately, professional dental cleanings every six months are critical to a patient's health with braces. Daily dental habits such as brushing twice a day and flossing daily will prevent plaque buildup and tooth decay. In addition, using products like Colgate Total Daily Repair toothpaste repairs early teeth and gum damage. Having a great smile is worth the temporary inconvenience and expense of braces. Some people are hesitant to invest in them despite the difference they can make — lingual braces are an answer to this problem. Whether you can see them or not, find out which braces are right for you. After all, a beautiful smile with healthy, straight teeth is absolutely worth the effort!

ORTHODONTIC METAL BRACES

A variety of orthodontic options exist today for people looking into getting braces. From traditional metal braces to Invisalign aligners, it can be a challenge to decide which choice is the best for your particular needs. Your dentist will likely refer you to an orthodontist who can work with you to explain the benefits of each type. Advantages and Disadvantages of Metal Orthodontia Traditional braces are more effective at treating extreme overcrowding than other options like clear braces or Invisalign aligners and are less expensive. They give your orthodontist the control he needs to move the teeth in small increments at a time. The main disadvantage of traditional braces is the metal mouth appearance. While less noticeable orthodontics like Invisalign may seem like a better choice for those who are conscious of their appearance, today's braces are more visually appealing than in past years, with a range of color options for both the brackets and the elastics. Wearing these types of braces also means that you don't have to worry about ever misplacing your aligners. Taking Care of Your Braces If you and your dentist decide that metal braces are the right choice for your orthodontic needs, some things to keep in mind include Avoid foods that aren't braces-friendly. Avoid chewy foods, like caramels or other soft candies, as well as very hard or crunchy foods that could damage your braces. Certain fruits and vegetables can get stuck in your braces, and should be cut into small pieces. Your practitioner will likely give you a list of foods to avoid to keep your braces in good shape and decrease your risk of cavities. Brush and floss appropriately. Taking proper care of your teeth is always important, but it is especially true when you have braces. Brushing and flossing regularly will keep your braces looking good and help you avoid staining to your teeth. Your dentist may recommend you use a special brush designed to get into the crevices and different surfaces in metal braces. It may take some practice to learn how to brush and floss around your braces, but it will get easier with time. Learn more about proper flossing techniques in the Colgate Oral Care resources. Keep your followup appointments. Seeing your dentist and orthodontist regularly allows for any adjustments to the braces to be made and gives you an opportunity to have any questions or concerns addressed. You will be wearing your braces for a fairly lengthy period, so it is important to follow your orthodontist's instructions and care for them properly. While braces may seem like an inconvenience, once the treatment is over, your new smile will be all the reward you need.

ORTHODONTIC CLEAR ALIGNERS

When consumers think about orthodontics, braces are the first thing to come to mind. However, orthodontics is more than just braces. Orthodontists are concerned with the position of the teeth, what has caused them to arrive at their current position, and what future movement may be needed so that a patient’s bite is fully functional. Your cosmetic dentist may have some orthodontic options available to straighten your teeth, ranging from conventional braces (with wires and brackets) to invisible braces (clear orthodontic aligners). Each method ranges in price and treatment length, and will vary by patient. Ask your cosmetic dentist about which treatment is right for you. CLEAR ORTHODONTICS ALIGNERS Clear orthodontic aligners can straighten a dental patient’s teeth without the wires and brackets of traditional braces. The aligners consist of a sequence of clear, removable trays that fit over the teeth to straighten them. Each tray must be worn by the patient for a specified amount of time—usually around 20 hours a day for two weeks–before the patient can progress to the next tray. In most situations, the aligners can straighten teeth in anywhere from six to 18 months. Clear orthodontic aligners are suitable for patients with mild or moderate crowding, or minor spacing issues. They may not be appropriate for patients with severe crowding or spacing. While the aligners can correct a mild malocclusion, patients with severe underbites, overbites or crossbites may require more advanced orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces, the trays can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Because the trays are clear, patients can undergo this type of orthodontic treatment without the usual discomfort associated with regular braces. Although treatment prices for aligners are normally set by the individual dentist or orthodontist, they can be more expensive than braces. If a patient fails to wear the trays properly, or loses them, additional costs may be incurred if new trays or impressions of a patient’s teeth are needed.

ORTHODONTICS TREATMENT

Orthodontics Overview Straight teeth and a correct bite reduce the risk of future dental issues and help you to smile more confidently. With straight teeth, you have a better chance of preventing plaque buildup, which often leads to gum disease. You’ll also be able to chew food properly and speak better. Dental Associates offers many orthodontic treatment options, including traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, Invisalign trays, lingual archwires, removable appliances, or even partial treatments. We’ll help you to decide which orthodontic treatment is best for you based on the severity of your bite, the degree of dental misalignment and your hopes regarding treatment times and the final results. Whatever orthodontic treatment we determine is best for your individual case, your braces will straighten your teeth, help you bite and chew correctly, improve your appearance, improve your oral health and help you feel better about yourself! Braces for a Misaligned Bite Braces correct a bad bite, also called malocclusion. Types of misaligned bites can be a crossbite, overjet, open bites and other bite issues. Bad bites and crooked teeth are often interrelated, and braces can fix both simultaneously. Even if your teeth appear straight, it’s possible that your jaws may not be properly aligned. In this case, an orthodontist may recommend treatment to prevent future problems such as premature tooth loss, extra wear to tooth enamel, speech and chewing problems, and more severe jaw problems. Jaw or tooth alignment issues can be inherited or caused by an injury, losing baby teeth prematurely or too late, or by thumb sucking. The kind of orthodontic treatment you’ll have depends on what you need to get corrected, what you prefer and what your orthodontist recommends. Below are some of the most common orthodontic treatment options. Traditional metal braces are an orthodontic treatment optionTraditional Metal Braces Traditional braces consist of standard metal brackets. This is the most common type of braces, and they have become much sleeker and more comfortable with recent advancements in technology. With metal braces, you also have the option of adding colored elastic bands to make your braces vibrant, colorful and uniquely yours! Learn more about traditional braces and colorful braces bands. Clear Braces Not all braces brackets have to be metal. If you want your braces to be less noticeable, clear braces may be for you. Clear braces function in the same way as traditional metal braces, but the brackets are made with translucent materials. Learn more about clear braces on our traditional braces page. Invisalign clear braces are an orthodontic treatment optionInvisible Braces Invisalign braces are a clear set of custom-fitted removable trays made with a pliable material that fits snuggly to your teeth. Each new set of Invisalign aligners applies a slight adjustment to your teeth. Since they’re removable, you can take them out while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing, so you can easily maintain good oral health habits. You can also remove them for special occasions. Learn more about Invisalign clear braces. Partial Orthodontic Treatment Not everyone needs a full set of braces. Depending on the case, sometimes just one, two or a few teeth need to be realigned for aesthetic purposes, or to prepare for other dental work such as dental implants, restorations, or periodontics. In these types of cases, an orthodontist may recommend partial orthodontic treatment, also called limited treatment. Because this treatment corrects a more isolated area of the mouth, it usually requires less treatment time and also less hardware. Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment for Young Children To create a healthy smile for a lifetime, a child’s teeth need to be straight and their jaws need to be aligned properly. It’s beneficial to have an orthodontist examine your child while they still have some of their baby teeth. By age seven, typically enough permanent teeth have emerged to evaluate relationships developing between the teeth, the jaw, and bite patterns for a pediatric dentist to make sure everything in the mouth will continue to develop as it should. If a pediatric dentist or orthodontist determines that early treatment is necessary, it often occurs in two phases. The first phase will begin right away while baby teeth are still present, and the second phase will occur when your child gets older at the time deemed appropriate by your child’s growth and development. At Dental Associates, you’ll experience the benefit of having your child’s orthodontist right down the hall from their pediatric dentist. Your child will receive the most coordinated pediatric dentistry and orthodontic care, all in the same clinic. Early treatment will help prevent larger oral issues later, and thus prevent more invasive orthodontic procedures when the child gets older. Early prevention and intervention makes orthodontic work as a teenager much more comfortable and successful.

DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental Implants Dental implants are a type of artificial tooth root. They can be used for both functional and cosmetic purposes. Dental implants also provide a strong foundation on which dental crowns can be placed. These dental crowns can be designed to match your natural teeth allowing for a better-looking smile. There are various reasons why you might decide to receive dental implants. Sometimes they are a necessary treatment and in other cases, they form a part of a cosmetic dental solution. If you’re looking for a Perth dentist who specialises in dental implants for general- and cosmetic treatments, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at Dental O So Gentle! Uses for Dental Implants Appearance – Dental implants can be used to enhance your appearance and when fused to the bone can both look and feel like your own natural teeth. Speech – For some people, ill-fitting dentures can pose speech problems. If you feel like you’re mumbling or slurring your words, dental implants can be a potential solution to prevent this from happening. Comfort – Both removable and partial full dentures can sometimes be uncomfortable to wear. Plus, sliding dentures can pose an issue when eating certain types of foods. Implants do not cause this problem, due to the permanency and rigidness of their application. Oral health – When you receive dental implants, the surrounding teeth do not need to be altered. This not only allows long term oral health improvement, but it also means that maintaining oral hygiene is easier due to the better access available between teeth. Convenience – The permanency of dental implants removes the necessity to take out your dentures, which can often be time consuming, embarrassing or both. Dental implants can last a lifetime when taken care of properly. If you’re interested in exploring dental implants for any of the above reasons, get in touch with your nearest Dental O So Gentle Perth clinic today. What is involved in receiving dental implants? The first step of receiving dental implants is the development of a personalised treatment plan. This will be a plan customised to address your specific needs, problems and situation, created by your dentist and implant surgeon. The actual application of the dental implants is performed through placing the titanium implants into the bone of the missing tooth. The jawbone then heals and grows around the implant, integrating it with the bone and anchoring it securely in the jaw. The healing and integration process can take anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks. Once the implant has integrated with the jawbone an abutment, which is the name of a small connector post, is then attached to the implant to further secure it in your mouth. Your dentist will take and use an impression of your teeth to then create a model of your bite and consequently a new tooth (or teeth). A replacement tooth, called a crown, is then attached to the abutment. In certain circumstances the abutment itself can be incorporated into the crown. Your new teeth are then customised to match the colour of your natural teeth and secured in the jawbone to ensure that they function, feel and appear like your other teeth. If necessary your dentist may do a bone and tissue augmentation to ensure that the crown appears as if it emerges out of the gum. An implant that is required in the area visible when smiling, may also need a temporary crown to hide the gap until the permanent crown is ready for application. Implant born dentures are applied in a similar way, with only the dentures being attached to the implant. How do I take care of my dental implants? Dental implants can be taken care of by following the same steps involved in caring for natural teeth – regular brushing, flossing and dental check-ups.

ROOT CANAL INR   0 INR  0

ROOT CANAL

Root canal treatment is a treatment for repairing and, ultimately, saving a tooth once the nerve has become irreversibly damaged by decay or a fracture, and is infected. If treatment is not received, then the tissue surrounding the tooth could possibly become infected and an abscess may form. Root canal treatment is when the nerve and pulp (the centre of the tooth where the nerves and blood vessels are contained) are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Whilst it might seem extreme, the nerve has to be removed due to the multiplication of bacteria within the pulp chamber. How do I know if I might need a Root Canal Treatment? You might need a root canal treatment if you experience the following: Severe toothache during chewing or whenever there is pressure placed on the tooth. Prolonged sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. (Especially once the stimulus is removed.) Tooth discolouration (darkening). Swelling and tenderness in the gums. Bad tastes in the surrounding area. A gum boil – a persistent or recurring pimple on the gums. Throbbing pain at night. Pain during running. Pain requiring relief by swishing cold water over the tooth. What happens during a root canal treatment? A root canal treatment will require at least one visit, and potentially more, to the dentist. The first step of the procedure is the taking of an x-ray. This will help determine the shape of the root canals and check if there are any signs of infection in the surrounding bone. Your dentist will then numb the area using a local anaesthesia. To keep the area dry and free of saliva during the treatment, a rubber dam (or separator) will be placed around the tooth. An access hole is made into the tooth, so that bacteria and decayed nerve tissue and debris removed. The tooth is then cleaned out using root canal files in our automated rotary system. Once cleaned thoroughly, the tooth is then sealed. A tooth that requires a root canal treatment is often one with a large filling or extensive decay, therefore making it weak. A crown is often required and placed on the tooth to protect it. This will help prevent breakages and restore it to full function. If any additional dental work is required, your dentist will discuss it with you. What should I expect after a root canal treatment? For the first few days after a root canal treatment, your tooth may feel sensitive. This is due to natural tissue inflammation, which can also be caused by pain or infection present prior to the procedure. This discomfort usually subsides after a few days, and it can be controlled using over-the-counter pain medications. What if the discomfort doesn’t go away? If you’re still experiencing uncomfortable pain after the treatment, you may need to schedule a five minute appointment with Dental O So Gentle in order to receive a minor occlusal adjustment. What can and I can’t I do after a root canal treatment? It is advisable that you minimise chewing on the tooth under repair, until the treatment is completed and the tooth is crowned. You can and should brush/floss as you do normally. If your tooth flares up and is too painful to touch, please call your dentist. This can happen occasionally due to the complicated nature of the root canal treatment. Either further canal cleaning or an occlusal adjustment may be needed.
