Wisdom teeth extraction

Are your wisdom teeth causing you pain and discomfort? If left in place problematic wisdom teeth may cause severe pain, infections and damage to the surrounding jawbone and teeth. Contact our friendly staff today to find out more about Wisdom Teeth extraction.

Root canal treatment

Root Canal Treatment or Therapy can be completed in a single appointment however it is beneficial to the success of your treatment to complete it over two or three appointments.

Once it has been determined that the Root Canal Therapy has been successful, a permanent crown will be placed to seal and strengthen the tooth and allow you to function normally.

Fillings

Do you experience pain when brushing certain teeth, or sensitivity when consuming hot or cold foods? If you answered yes, you may have tooth decay that requires a filling. Fillings help to restore your teeth and relieve the pain associated with cavities and wear, bringing a tooth back to its usual function and shape.

Teeth Whitening

If your teeth are stained or discoloured due to lifestyle factors, development problems, age or other reasons teeth whitening may be the perfect solution. At Coffs Coast Dental we offer the Zoom!® Professional Whitening System (Zoom!®) is one of the newest ways to whiten your teeth and brighten your smile.  Zoom!® is a bleaching process that safely lightens discolored teeth.  It is quick and easy.  The process can be completed in your dentist’s office in just over one hour.

What determines the colour of our teeth?

  • The thickness of the enamel and its opacity help determine the colour of your teeth as it determines how much of the inner yellow/grey dentine color shows through. The part of the tooth closed to the gum is the darkest as the enamel is thinnest at this point.
  • Baby teeth are lighter than permanent teeth.
  • Blonde haired people usually have white/grey teeth.
  • Brunettes usually have white/yellow teeth.

Ask the dentist to show you the large range of colours we can select from when making an artificial tooth – such as a crown. You will be quite surprised in the range of ‘normal.’

ARE THERE ANY PRECAUTIONS?

You should not have had anti-wrinkle or filler injections in the 1-2 weeks prior to the treatment. You also need to not be pregnant or breastfeeding. Other contraindications (reasons why you cannot have a Hydrafacial include): herpetic rashes, skin cancers on the face especially if they are ulcerated, inflammation of the skin of the face, or severe forms of acne. You also cannot have it if you are allergic to shellfish. If you are unsure or require further information please ask our friendly staff before your appointment.

Porcelain Veneers

If your teeth are chipped, heavily discoloured, have small gaps between them or are slightly crooked, then veneers may be an option. Veneers are thin shells that are bonded onto the front of your teeth to effectively hide these problems.

As a precursor to veneers, we recommend you try teeth whitening first. Veneers are used in the “smile zone” i.e. on the teeth that are visible when you smile, whereas whitening will brighten all of your teeth. In addition, you achieve a better result with veneers when your natural teeth are as light as possible.

Why use porcelain veneers?

  • Appearance is very important
  • Chipped teeth
  • Stained teeth due to antibiotics or trauma or root canal treatment
  • Teeth with old fillings or where fillings discolor quickly
  • Minor reshaping of teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Closing spaces between teeth

Dental Implants

If you have a tooth missing, your dentist may recommend using a dental implant that is surgically placed into the bone to act as a replacement for the root. A precision fitted prosthetic crown is then attached to the implant to replace the missing tooth.

An implant is a titanium “root” which can be placed into the jawbone. Once integrated with your bone, the implant can be used to support a crown, a bridge, or secure a complete denture. Dental implants may be used to eliminate partial plates and dentures.

Dental Implants function and feel like your natural teeth and are the standard of care for replacing missing teeth.

Dental implant treatment represents a slightly greater investment than conventional treatment; however, the benefits of implant therapy for most patients outweigh the minor additional cost involved.

Bridges

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the and a false tooth/teeth in between. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

Bridges can:

  • Restore your smile
  • Restore the ability to properly chew and speak
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

Preventative Care and Oral Hygiene

What is gingivitis?

Gingivitis is inflammation of the gingivae (gums).

What is Periodontitis

Periodontitis means inflammation around the tooth- it is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and bone that supports the tooth.

Prevention is better than the cure- this saying definitely applies to teeth! A regular oral hygiene assessment with your dentist will catch problems before they become chronic, minimising pain and saving you money.

A variety of dental and medical problems including gingivitis, oral infection, heart disease, strokes and periodontitis (inflamed gums and bones) may be due to poor oral health.

Bad breath, bleeding or swollen gums or a change in the colour of your gums are all signs of gum disease.

Gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because it is usually painless many people are not aware that they have gum disease.
