Teeth Whitening

For whitening of dark, dull, or stained teeth, take-home teeth whitening may be the simplest solution. A whitening kit is made by taking mould of your teeth, a soft clear tray is then fabricated. This tray is filled with a bleaching gel and placed directly over the teeth in the mouth. This gel filled tray can be worn for several hours during the day or worn at night while you sleep. Results can be seen daily. To attain maximum results, most patients must wear the bleaching tray for 4 days.

Composite Bonding

When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resins may be the material of choice. Bonding makes a great tooth coloured filling for small cavities and broken or chipped surfaces. It can also be used to close spaces between teeth. Additionally, bonding is used to cover the entire surface of a tooth to change its colour and shape. Bonding may not be strong enough, aesthetic enough, or durable enough for certain individual situations. When these problems occur the next choice would be porcelain laminate veneers.

Porcelain Veneers and Crowns

With the cost of dental veneers driven so low (thanks to technological innovations) more people are now looking at them as a viable alternate to their dental issues. Dental Veneers are ceramic (usually Porcelain) or other composite resin-based ultra-thin shells, which are affixed onto the front of the patients’ teeth. The simplicity of the procedure involved means that it is not only cheap to undergo, but requires from little to no anesthesia to perform.

Orthodontics

Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. Orthodontic problems can contribute to conditions like tooth decay, gum disease,tooth loss, abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress and misalignment of the jaw joints, which can result in chronic headaches or pain in the face or neck.

Orthodontic treatment can improve your dental health and change your facial profile for the better providing you with higher self-esteem feeling more self-confident. Imagine how your child’s confidence can carried through to adulthood. Orthodontics is straightening the teeth within the arch, to level and align them. This is usually done with braces or now with Invisalign. Habits such as incorrect swallowing, tongue thrusting, thumb sucking, mouth breathing can cause poor development of the jaws and therefore poor facial appearance and crooked teeth.

Orthopaedics is guiding the growth of the developing jaws to obtain the best facial appearance and smile. This involves using plates to expand and develop the arches.

Clear Braces

When people think of braces, they remember they mouthfuls of metal that kids all seemed to have. Orthodontics has evolved a lot since then, and people now wear clear brackets that are glued to the front of each tooth (a big improvement!) Those old-fashioned bands are usually reserved for molars or teeth with fillings that spill to the outside surface of a tooth. Clear braces tend to be less expensive than other types of braces. In addition, you can make them colourful with ligatures that come on a rainbow of colours.

Damon Braces

Using the Damon System, treatment time is typically shorter when compared to conventional braces, and with fewer appointments. Damon System braces use a unique slide mechanism that minimises friction and reduces pressure on your teeth, allowing them to move ‘passively’ and more comfortably into their correct positions.  This revolutionary new approach ensures greater comfort during treatment. Elastics and active clips can act like parking brakes, resulting in friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable with more frequent visits to change elastics.

FUNCTIONAL JAW ORTHOPAEDICS

Functional Jaw Orthopaedics is the art of using Removable or Fixed appliances during the child’s growth phase to address malocclusions which have a skeletal basis. These appliances influence the growth of the developing facial and jaw bones when they have the potential for rapid growth. All of these issues can be treated before the permanent teeth erupt and can prevent the use of fixed orthodontics, such as braces, in the future.

A dental implant is a small titanium fixture that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the upper or lower jaw. It will bond with the bone over time and thus serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth.

To obtain a specific fee estimate, it is necessary to have our implant dentist examine your mouth. After a thorough diagnostic examination, our dentist will recommend the treatment that is best for you.

Bone Grafts

The success of a dental implant, it's ability to support a dental restoration, is very much dependent upon how much bone is available in the site where the implant is placed. There are lots of things that affect the bone volume including things like periodontal disease, trauma and infections and it is not unusual to open up a site in the mouth for implant placement and find out that some of the critical supporting bone is missing. No problem.... We have great techniques available to us to replace missing bone. We can increase the height of bone and the width of bone. We can fill in anatomical voids in bone thereby creating new bone and we can fill in all sorts of defects that develop when teeth are lost. We can even use grafting techniques to prevent the loss of bone in circumstances where bone would normally be lost like the extraction of a tooth. 

*

results

Replacing missing bone or adding to existing bone is very often essential to the success of a dental implant and the ensuing restoration. The techniques to do this are well documented and should be used when indicated by any dentist who places dental implants. We have a good idea when additional bone or bone repair will be necessary before actually starting the placement of a dental implant and you should be informed of this possibility. 

 

Types of Bone Grafts

There are many ways in which bone grafting can be done. Very often, we can use "bone in a bottle" to do bone grafting for dental implants. This bone is specially prepared and used to get your own bone to grow into the repair site. It is very effective and very safe. Sometimes synthetic materials can be used to stimulate bone formation and sometimes we even use factors from your own blood to accelerate and promote bone formation in graft areas.

Sometimes it is as simple as collecting bone when preparing an implant site and then reusing the bone for grafting purposes. Whenever we can use your own bone for repairs or additions, we will get the best results. In extreme cases, bone can be harvested from areas outside the mouth. The most common area is the hip. Needless to say, when this type of bone graft is done, everyone has to be fully prepared and you would usually find yourself in a hospital setting with a physician actually removing the bone from your hip. Very often, bone grafting is done in combination with what dentistry refers to as a "Barrier Membrane Technique".

Membranes made out of special materials are placed over bone graft sites to keep out the types of soft tissue cells we do not want and promote the growth and migration of cells which will turn into normal, healthy bone. These membranes are very successful and are used quite a bit these days to promote sound bone formation. The membranes are usually removed at a later date, but sometimes they can be resorbed by the body and disappear all on their own. In addition, it is not uncommon to use "screws" and "tacks" to secure membranes and bone grafts at an implant site. Sometimes these pieces will also have to be removed at a later date, but rest assured that all of these components and grafting materials are safe and effective and their use has gone a long way in increasing the success rates of dental implants.

The Sinus Lift

Sometimes the sinus are enlarged and intrude on areas where we want to place dental implants. We cannot place a dental implant into the sinus because we would just be placing it into an air cavity and nothing would hold it into place (although, very often, implants that are placed securely into solid bone will protrude a small way into the sinus) so when we encounter this problem, we place bone or bone growth stimulating material into the sinus.

This procedure really only affects the maxillary sinuses which are located just over the molar teeth in the upper jaw. There are no sinuses in the lower jaw. When the maxillary sinus prevents the placement of an implant, we merely open up the side of the sinus and raise the bottom portion of the sinus so it will fill in with bone. We can then go back several months later and place our dental implants in solid bone.

Sometimes, there is enough bone to place the implants at the same time that you raise the floor of the sinus. This will save time. There are some more conservative ways to grow bone in the sinus. We just raise the floor of the sinus right over where we are placing an implant. This can be done without actually opening the sinus and healing and implant integration will then proceed as if the sinus was not in the way. Sinus lifts of all types have a high success rate and are commonly used today for promoting dental implant procedures.


Single Tooth Implant

Missing tooth surrounded by very healthy teeth have unique demands. The challenge is to replace your now missing tooth for both appearance and function, without harming your remaining teeth or gum tissue.

Appearance

Besides good function during chewing, the ideal replacement must look like natural teeth, both to you and to others. The solutions possible with Single Dental Implant supported porcelain crown take advantage of the best appearance possibilities available in dentistry and modern dental technology.

Confidence

The ideal replacement must also feel like natural teeth and be easy to keep clean. Knowing your teeth are stable during eating and talking means a lot. Another benefit is that your implant supported tooth will not decay like natural teeth. Our treatments prevent grinding down your remaining natural teeth.

 

SECURITY

Buyers beware of overseas dental implants. Dental implants in Thailand may be cheaper and some might say faultless. If something does go wrong, dentist in Sydney are not able to provide the components use from dental implants from Thailand as they will not use the same implants. Dental implants in Sydney done by dentists here are guaranteed and you can always have regular checks and maintenance here. How inconvenient if you have issues with your dental implants in Thailand that you have to fly overseas to rectify your dental implant.

Alternative Option - Removable partial denture

This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. Function can't be compared to that of a bridge. This denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look. It is quite expensive to fabricate due to its many parts. However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.

All Teeth Missing

Before dental implants, there were no permanent solution available for people who lost all their teeth. Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and high aesthetic solution.

• Lets you eat and function like having natural teeth

• A solid, stable solution that will serve you for life

• Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss

Benefits of a fixed porcelain bridge on implants, when all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is your best permanent solution. The treatment procedure and number of visits is largely dependent on the specific conditions. With some modern esthetic dentistry treatments the entire treatment can take only 3-4 patient visits. Using a conventional treatment approach, the treatment can take 8-10 visits. Most clients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated.

Install

The first step is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, five implants are used. Temporary teeth are attached that enable you to eat and function before the permanent bridge to be installed.

Attach

The final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants. With a full jaw replacement like this, it normally takes 2-3 visits to have the bridge completely attached.

Results

Your new teeth should be hard to tell from natural - both for you and others. People who have had traditional dentures before getting a fixed bridge often describe this as an overwhelming and very positive experience.

Gum Grafting

In this technique, a very thin layer of skin is taken from the palate, or other sites, in which the tissues are identical to gum tissue. Grafts are taken and shaped from the donor site and transplanted to the recipient site to create new gum tissue; both sites will heal in a very predictable and uneventful manner. The free gingival graft is so-called because it is “freed” from the donor site completely.

Connective tissue grafting is used to cover exposed roots in the treatment of gum recession.

This requires great skill, art and care, together with an understanding of local anatomy and wound healing.

TMJ Dysfunction

TMJ Dysfunction/disorder has many different causes. Factors such as missing teeth, grinding, clenching from stress, emotional physical stress and tension to the jaw muscles, injuries such as fractures or dislocations of the TMJ, occlusion issues from incorrect shaped teeth from either fillings, crowns or your natural mis-shaped teeth, bite issues. 

There is no formula to say that one treatment is best for your case, as each individual differs in the causes of their TMJ pain, therefore a personalised approach towards the treatment plan is essential in management of the TMJ dysfunction. 

Treatment can range from: 

  • Occlusion splint therapy to relieve pressure off the joint/teeth 
  • Modified diet to only eat soft food and do not favour on one side of the mouth 
  • Avoid extreme jaw movement such as yawning
  • Physiotherapy
  • Stress management 
  • Medication 
  • Orthodontic treatment to correct your bite 
  • Anti-wrinkle injections to stop clenching and relax jaw muscle 
  • Surgery 
  • Specialist management of other discipline 

Treatment may also require all or a combination of the above to achieve the best results. 

Anti Wrinkle Injections

Muscle relaxant treatment is now available at Pain Free Dentist Sydney for Jaw Tension and TMJ. Muscle relaxant therapy is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort. The injection relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress even minimize lock jaw.

Anti-wrinkle injections are made from a natural, purified protein in sterile laboratory conditions. Anti-wrinkle injections are strategically injected into specific wrinkle-causing muscles, creating an improved appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections relax the underlying muscles thereby smoothing overlying skin and causing lines and wrinkles to soften and prevents them from deepening and new lines developing in the treated area.

In addition to reducing wrinkles, another great benefit of injectable muscle relaxant treatments is the lift that they give to your face; taking away the appearance of tiredness and creating a more youthful, refreshed you. Headaches caused by muscle tension is relieved from these injections . Teeth clenching and grinding is also eliminated. Reducing the incident of broken crowns and fillings from bruxism and clenching.

Injections & TMJ

Located on both sides of the head at the point where the jawbone meets the skull, the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) is used during talking, eating, swallowing, and other everyday activities. If this joint becomes displaced or is overworked through excessive teeth grinding, a person may suffer severe tension headaches, as well as sharp pain in the jaw. These injections relieves jaw tension by making muscles unable to engage in the powerful, often unconscious movement of the jaw that produces headaches and pain.

TMJ injection

Non surgical procedure that is quick, straightforward and effective. Patients experience noticeable improvement within  two days of their first treatment

tmj2.jpg

affected areas

Only the areas that are injected with the b toxin will be relaxed. Muscle relaxant treatment for TMJ therapy will not affect anywhere else in your body. 

*

DURATION

Although dependant on the number of injections, it is reasonable for the treatment procedure to be completed within 10-30 minutes.

TMJ Dysfunction is a complex issue and the problem can range from simple to complex solutions. Dr Lisa finds the cause of the problem, which is usaully bite, skeletal alignment, postural, muscularjoint pathology or another cause that relates to the pain pathway that mimics TMJ pain. Each one of these causes will require proper assessments, investigation, correct treatment, therapies that could involve working with other allied health professionals. We highly recommend working with physiotherapists, chiropractors, naturopaths, osteopaths, pain specialists, oral surgeons, orthodontists, prosthodontists.

Is the muscle relaxant Treatment Painful?

The TMJ Treatment procedure is minimal and brief. Some patients have likened the injection pain unto a "bug bite" or "prick". We use special tiny needles that it is hardly felt. If you are scared of needles the doctor may offer some sedatives prior to injections.

What to Expect After the TMJ Treatment?

After the TMJ Treatment muscle tenderness will start to disappear almost immediately.  Wrinkles begin to disappear within 24 - 48 hours after the injections, and you may continue to see the wrinkles diminish up to one week after the treatment procedure.

There may be mild temporary bruising, numbness, or redness around the injection sites. You will not look 20 years younger, but you may find that you look more natural and relaxed or less sad and angry. A small number of patients treated with these injections reported noticeable difference in the reduction of their wrinkles.

What is the Recovery from muscle relaxant Therapy for TMJ Treatment Like?

Because the treatment procedure is non-surgical and non-invasive, it is highly likely that the patient can return to normal activities immediately. However, to avoid spreading the toxin to other muscles, patients should not rub or massage the area injected with this toxin and remain upright for many hours. Physical activity should also be limited for a time.

Risks, Limitations & Possible Complications of Injections for TMJ Treatment As with any medical procedure there are possible risks and side effects when using for TMJ treatment. Since this is a non-surgical treatment procedure, the risks and possible complications are infrequent, minimal and temporary. Muscle relaxant injection treatments should be avoided during pregnancy and lactation.

What does a treatment session involve?

During an initial consultation to assess your areas of concern accredited dentist will discuss the appropriate treatment options and the expected results. After your consultation, the injection treatment will take around 10 minutes to perform. No anaesthetic is required as this is a fine needle treatment and is virtually painless. The results will develop over the next few days and last for up to 3 months.

Patients suffering from headache that spreads from the forehead and behind the eyes region will require injections in these regions: Forehead Frontalis muscles, Glabellar Frown lines and the crows feet eye region. It is a non surgical treatment whereby a small amount of toxin is injected into selected facial muscles by your dentist using a very fine needle. Generally the treatment takes around 10 minutes. Discomfort is very minimal, and no anaesthetic is usually required. After the injection, it takes 3-4 days for the treatment to begin taking effect. The dose recommended for the treatment of frown lines will vary depending on your individual situation and the severity of your frown lines. Your dentist will know what the best dose is for you and which muscles to inject to give you the best results.

How does muscle relaxant therapy work?

Many facial wrinkles occur when we use our muscles to make repeated facial expressions. The treatments can be used to relax specific facial muscles that cause expression lines. Once the muscles are relaxed, you cannot contract them and continue to make those undesirable facial expressions. After treatment the lines gradually smooth and new lines are prevented from forming.

How long does this therapy last?

The effect can last up to 4 months before lines slowly begin to return. If you have repeat treatments, the effect tends to last longer.

Does this treatment cause more wrinkles to form?

This anti-wrinkle treatment will relax the facial muscles that cause expression lines. It does not cause more wrinkles to form. If you decide not to have further treatments your muscles will eventually return to normal activity and your wrinkles will gradually revert to their pre-treatment levels.

The Foundation For A Great Smile

Gum disease affects most people at some time during their life. It is usually caused by a build-up of plaque on teeth. There are two main stages of gum disease, Gingivitis and Periodontitis. 

Gingivitis is early gum disease and occurs when dental plaque builds up on teeth, particularly where the gum joins the tooth. Periodontitis is an advanced gum disease that may occur if gingivitis is not treated. The gum margin, the part of the gum that seals to the tooth, is weakened and spaces form between the tooth and the gum. These spaces are called ‘periodontal pockets.’ Bacteria become trapped in these pockets causing further inflammation (redness and swelling).
