We can help you restore your smile for a variety of dental issues such as:
Broken and damaged teeth
Teeth that have been damaged, chipped, or broken can all benefit from restorative dentistry. If your tooth has been damaged in this way you can use treatment methods such as dental crowns and bridges. These prosthetic teeth will encircle your existing tooth to restore it to its original form.
If your teeth are suffering from tooth decay, then you may be in need of a filling. Here at Mullumbimby Dental we offer white fillings that blend into the natural look of your teeth. Decay is usually caused by improper oral hygiene and a diet that is not so tooth friendly. If you consume a lot of sugary foods and drinks, or ones that are high in acidity, this can break down the enamel on your teeth and allow bacteria to decay your tooth. Brushing and flossing twice a day usually removes this bacteria and plaque build up. However, if your technique is not correct, that can lead to some issues.
If your decay is not treated it can infultrate the inside of your tooth and effect the soft tissue centre called pulp. If pulp becomes infected or inflamed then you may need root canal treatment to temper the issue. Pulp infection is often quite painful, accompanied by a sever toothache.
If you have tooth loss then it is important to remember that you can restore your smile. With advancements in dentistry, there are a number of options that you can pursue if you want to restore your lost teeth. Not only are they viable options for broken teeth, but crowns and bridges can be used for tooth loss. Additionally, dental implants also offer an option for tooth loss. Dental implants are artificial teeth that are permanently inserted into the mouth. They function just like a normal tooth would. Dental implants are a good idea, not only for their aesthetic purposes, but they will also help the shape of your face and can even improve your speech.
