The most important advance in dental care in the last 30 years has without doubt been the ability to replace missing teeth. Replacing missing, or gum-infected teeth with implant restorations can allow you to smile with confidence once again
Specialist prosthodontists are the recognised experts for the design and fabrication of removable dentures. Removable dentures (false teeth) are used to replace missing teeth and gums.
Not everyone is happy with their smile or how their teeth look. This can have a major impact on a person's confidence when it comes to interacting and socialising with others. Cosmetic focuses on the beauty of a smile and covers treatments that enhance, align, and whiten or tone the teeth for a more attractive appearance.
When a tooth is seriously damaged and unsuitable for a direct placement filling then coverage with a crown or onlay is generally required. When planned and carried out correctly using a skilled technician it is possible to restore teeth.
Gum disease is the most common cause of tooth loss in the western world and most sufferers are unaware of their problem. It is slowly progressing, in most case taking many years to become evident.
The way your teeth meet when your top and bottom jaws close down on top of each other is known as your ‘bite’. If teeth don’t fit together properly, you could have malocclusion or ‘bad bite’, which can cause problems with teeth, gums, the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) and the muscles in your face.
How your teeth look can affect your self confidence, and making the decision to straighten your teeth can be exciting and a little daunting. You may be excited about having a new, straight smile, but concerned about how you will look while your teeth are changing.
Wisdom teeth usually grow through the gums during your late teens or early twenties. Often, there is not enough room in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to grow through in a straight line and they will emerge at an angle to fill the available space.
