dental fillings

Dental fillings are used to treat cavities (permanently damaged areas in the teeth lead to small holes). Cavities start from a collection of bacteria, excess  intake of sugar consumption and poor oral hygiene. In addition reflux and smoking can also contribute to creating plaque, tartar, and cavities. A filling may be needed if:

To determine the extent of the damage caused by the cavity, your dentist uses a small mirror to perform an oral examination. Anything abnormal will be closely evaluated with special instruments. X-rays of the entire mouth or section thereof may also be taken.

Myobrace is one of the most effective ways to address many common orthodontic problems, especially in young children. Issues can include improper jaw growth, malocclusion, overcrowding, to name a few.

If you or your child are experiencing any of these conditions, chat to us about Myobrace as a good option. ill help you determine if it is the right choice for improving dental health for your child.

Myobrace treatment has several phases. The first being to correct poor habits, like breathing the mouth. It also restrains the tongue, causing it to rest in the proper position.

Next, Myobraces works to produce proper arch development and dental alignment. Finally, Myobrace helps retain these corrections in future. It prevents relapses that are common once traditional braces are removed (or if the patient fails to wear their retainer).

Snoring & sleep apnoea

Snoring can sometimes be an indicator of a bigger problem such as obstructive sleep apnoea. The narrowing of the air passage characterises sleep apnoea which causes breathing pauses of more than ten seconds at a time. When you breathe, the relaxed tissues may vibrate which makes a loud noise, known as snoring. Regular snoring partially blocks your airway but does not cause any significant breathing problems. So this is very different and should not be minimised to regular snoring. People who snore may be suffering from a few things:

Symptoms associated with obstructive sleep apnoea include noticeable episodes of breath pauses, daytime sleepiness or fatigue, hypertension, heart disease and history of a stroke. Snoring can have detrimental effects -not only on your relationship with your partner, but more importantly on your health. Help is not far away! A simple device supplied by your dentist can help combat the condition instantaneously.

We can now assist you in treating your sleep apnoea and snoring through the use of an intra-oral appliance called the Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD).
