While their goal is usually to help you keep your teeth, certain situations can make an extraction the only option. The team at Dentallive has extensive experience in removal of teeth of all shapes, sizes and locations. This knowledge and care taken into the procedure minimises the discomfort a patient may experience. Teeth may be extracted because they are severely decayed, have advanced periodontal disease, broken in a way that cannot be saved or even in some cases healthy teeth that are misaligned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth). Removal of teeth require analysis of the radiograph and intraoral conditions.
Dentallive provides a wide range of quality preventative, restorative, prosthodontics, periodontics and cosmetic dental treatments. Using state-of-the-art technology, this clinic provides high-quality oral health care and individualised attention to every patient. Their team works collaboratively using their combined expert knowledge to not just meet but exceed your oral health goals. Dental treatmentSports dentistry Millions of teeth are knocked out each year during sports. Dentallive can make a custom made mouth guard to protect them. It is recommended that children wear sports mouth guards for hockey, basketball, baseball and soccer as well. A professionally made guard is custom fitted to your child's mouth so that they need not bite down on it for it to stay in. Above all it will stay in place if an accident happens. Dentallive Clinic is concerned how few children actually wear the store bought guards because they are uncomfortable or do not actually fit. Of course, as children outgrow these appliances, it becomes costly for parents to invest in this device. Dentallive Clinic can make affordable mouth guards custom fitted for adults and children. These can even be colour coordinated to their uniforms! Laser whitening Because teeth get discoloured for many reasons including coffee, tobacco and food stains, Dentallive Clinic offers a spa-dent laser whitening system to being your smile to life. The process provides the maximum whitening results, in the least amount of time with virtually no sensitivity, all under the supervision of their dental team. The gel formulation is placed in their dual arch mouth trays with the precise dosage of whitening material. Dentallive's unique blue and red LED light activates the gel, providing powerful whitening with cellular stimulation. Hydroxyl radicals penetrate the tooth enamel to break down stains into progressively smaller particles. This process will penetrate but not harm or damage the tooth enamel, including caps, crowns and veneers. For the best results, this clinic recommends a cleaning prior to the appointment for whitening. Dentallive also need to make sure you do not have any cavities so there is no sensitivity after. Dental implants A new gold standard for replacing missing teeth in dentistry. They are designed as a replacement for missing teeth that look, feel and function like your own natural teeth. It restores the ability to eat virtually any food and allow patients to smile with confidence; knowing that teeth appears natural. The dental implants are tiny titanium posts/screws that are anchored into the jawbone where the teeth are missing. The bone osteointegrates (bonds) with the titanium over a three month period allowing for fusion of the bone to the implant creating a strong foundation for your new teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing. Dental implants can be used to anchor complete dentures to provide support and retention for loose dentures. Dental crowns Dentallive replaces existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth. Where damage to a person's teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, the clinic can use porcelain or porcelain 'pasted on gold' crowns to make the smile appear 'as new'. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. Dentallive are renowned for the quality of their work and the fantastic changes they make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent. Dentures Complete or partial dentures are a viable alternative for missing teeth. As a patient you have to realise dentures will never fit or feel as good as your natural teeth, especially lower dentures which are prone to retention problems. Dentures are made of a hard acrylic that is moulded to form to your existing tissues. Remember when you do not have teeth you will lose your bone over time and you may need your denture relined or a new one down the road. Remember you can always get a better fitting denture by anchoring them into the bone with implants. Invasalign and braces Maligned teeth may not only look bad but may give occlusion problems. Dentallive Clinic does in office orthodontics that help fix crooked teeth for patients of all ages. Now if you are concerned about having metal in your mouth for 18 months, Invisalign is a great alternative that provides clear braces. Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry focused on the diagnosis and treatment of dental and associated facial irregularities. The results of orthodontic treatment can be dramatic — beautiful smiles, improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for many people of all ages. Orthodontic problems, which can result from genetic and environmental factors, must be diagnosed before treatment begins. Proper diagnosis involves taking photographs, x-rays, and dental impressions, which enable Dentallive's practice to make informative decisions about the form of treatment necessary. Fillings and root canals To restore your tooth to proper function and aesthetic when you have a cavity or broken tooth. Two types of filling available include:
Periodontics Periodontology (periodontics) is the specific aspect of dentistry that studies the supporting structures of the teeth and the diseases that affect them. The supporting structures or tissues are collectively known as the periodontium which comprises of the gums (or gingiva), cementum, alveolar region and pariodontal ligament. Dentallive's specialist periodontist help patients to achieve and maintain the best possible periodontol health. The treatment philosophy embraces the best available periodontal and implant care and hygiene with proven effectiveness. Periodontal treatment includes:
TMJ and Sleep Apena TMJ Dentallive Clinic deals not only with teeth but the musculature and joints that support the oral cavity. TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have had symptoms like pain or a 'clicking' sound, you will be glad to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Since some types of TMJ problems can lead to more serious conditions, early detection and treatment are important. TMJ disorders develop for many reasons. You might clench or grind your teeth, tightening your jaw muscles and stressing your TM joint. Or, you may have a damaged jaw joint due to injury or disease. Whatever the cause, the results may include a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or trouble opening your mouth wide. Other treatments
