Many people believe that if they are not experiencing dental pain or other problems, they don’t need to visit the dentist. But the truth is that good preventive care is the foundation of all dentistry. Routine dental check-ups at our Chatswood, NSW dental clinic every six months can help you avoid most common dental concerns, like cavities and gum disease. When your teeth are strong and healthy, you’re also less likely to develop emergency problems like infections or cracks. There’s more good news: Preventive care is likely to cost you much less money in the long run.
Routine cleanings are another important first step. Even with superb brushing and flossing habits, you are likely to leave traces of plaque on your teeth. These traces will eventually calcify and become tartar, which is impossible to remove with your toothbrush and floss. Your six-month cleaning is an opportunity for a fresh start and is a key component of preventive care.
Maybe your smile needs a little extra help to look and feel its best. Dr Lim and Dr Sridhar both possess the skills, knowledge, talent, and technique to improve both the functionality and the appearance of your teeth.
Dental Crowns and Cosmetic Bonding
If your teeth need repair, we can discuss crowns, bonding or inlays and onlays. Cosmetic bonding at our Chatswood, NSW dental clinic can repair minor flaws with the smile—usually in just one dental appointment.
Dental crowns at our Chatswood, NSW dental clinic can strengthen a tooth that has become weakened or damaged. They are also used to treat a tooth that has had a root canal since the removal of living tissue tends to make the tooth brittle.
Dental Bridges and Dentures
If one or more teeth need replacing, our options include bridges, implants and dentures. If alignment is an issue, we offer orthodontic treatment at our Chatswood, NSW dental clinic for all ages as well, including Invisalign clear braces.
Dental implants are widely considered the gold standard of tooth replacement because they most closely mimic the natural tooth. The implant becomes a permanent part of your jawbone, taking the place of the missing tooth root. Those who opt for dental implants at our Chatswood, NSW dental surgery love that they have no food restrictions because dental implants are stable. They don’t slip or move the way dentures do.
If you aren’t sure where to start, it might be time to think about full mouth reconstruction. Dr Lim and Dr Sridhar can sit down with you to discuss your goals and help you make decisions about how best to restore the health of your smile.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction is a demanding and complex area of dentistry, and it requires a combination of multiple specific skills and disciplines. It also requires extensive and thorough planning on the part of the cosmetic dentist.
The goal of this type of treatment is to restore the health, function, and beauty of the teeth in such a way that nobody would ever know which teeth are your own and which are restorations.
When you’re considering dental treatment of this level, it’s crucial to pick a dentist and team with ample experience, skill, and talent. That’s exactly what you’ll find with Dr Lim and Dr Sridhar at Chatswood Dental Associates.
Not only have both of our top Chatswood, NSW dentists been practicing for decades, they also have extensive experience in specialized areas of dentistry, including endodontics (the field that deals with the root canals), periodontics (the field that deals with the gum and bone tissue that hold your teeth in place), laser dentistry, occlusion, and neuromuscular dentistry. Additionally, our doctors have served in leadership roles, serving as role models and mentors for other dentists.
Both dentists have an artistic eye as well, something you’ll definitely want when planning out a fresh new smile! Your health and appearance are both crucial, and we take both into consideration when planning your full mouth reconstruction. So if you're considering a treatment like a full mouth reconstruction, please don't hesitate to contact our Chatswood, NSW clinic today.
While caring for your teeth and gums is obviously important, we believe in helping our patients achieve overall wellness.
When you have pain and clicking in your jaw joints, it can really impact your quality of life. We offer a three-step process to help relieve your symptoms, reduce the tension in your jaw, and then treat the underlying condition.
Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA)
We offer dental appliances to help treat sleep apnoea, a serious sleep disorder that is associated with debilitating conditions like heart attacks and strokes.
Do you have OSA? Answering this question requires you to have a sleep study carried out by a sleep physician. In some cases, you will need to sleep overnight in a sleep clinic so that they can monitor your sleep habits. In other cases, an at-home sleep test may provide accurate enough data to come to a definitive conclusion. Sleep analysis will also determine the severity of your OSA condition if it exists. This allows sleep experts to make accurate recommendations for treatment.
Some of the signs of OSA include:
- Daytime sleepiness
- Frequent fatigue
- Sore throat
- Inability to concentrate
- Weight gain
- Loud snoring
Many of our Chatswood, NSW dental patients do not realise they suffer from a sleep disorder unless their partner complains of loud snoring, or they receive an unexpected diagnosis from their physician. Sleeping with a C-PAP machine is often the first recommendation for treating sleep apnoea. Some patients prefer an alternative either because of frequent travel or because they have difficulty getting used to wearing the C-PAP mask while they sleep.
Get Treatment from Your Dentist
If you're interested in treating your obstructive sleep apnoea, give our Chatswood, NSW dental clinic a call. We offer an approved alternative called oral appliance therapy. An oral appliance can assist with opening your airway as you sleep by gently guiding your lower jaw forward to remove the obstructive anatomy. This allows many patients with mild to moderate OSA to enjoy the regenerative sleep they need to stay healthy.
If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnoea, please come see us so we can discuss whether treatment with an appliance is appropriate for you.
