Your Caring And Kind Ignite Medispa Cosmetic Dentist And Dental Assistant

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement in dental aesthetics in colour, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance.

What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is the management of damaged or missing teeth.  The aim is to fill empty spaces (whether by fillings, crowns, bridges, or implants) to maintain or improve teeth alignment, and to improve oral hygiene.  There shall be an added benefit of bolstering a patient’s self-esteem.

 

What Are The ‘Basic’ Restorative Dental Services At Ignite Medispa?

These are aimed at managing the teeth and gums to keep the mouth healthy and functional.  They encompass: 

  • Dental Consultation; 
  • Diagnostic Imaging (Radiographs); 
  • Scale and polish (removal of plaque); 
  • Fillings (typically last 5-15 years); 
  • Extractions. 

What Kind Of Specialist Dental Services (‘Major’ Restorative Dentistry) Are Provided At Ignite Medispa? 

  • Dentures; 
  • Veneers; 
  • Crowns and Bridges; 
  • Invisalign; 
  • Zoom Teeth Whitening; 
  • Mouthguards
  • Teeth extractions

 

What Are Veneers And What Do They Do?

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their colour, shape, size, or length.

What Are Crowns And How Are They Involved In Dental Restoration?

Crowns are a common type of dental restoration, which help restore the tooth’s shape and look. Crowns fit over a damaged or fractured tooth, kind of like a cap. Enclosing the part of your tooth that’s visible above the gum line, crowns are often used to strengthen your natural tooth. Crowns are often made out of porcelain or ceramic and your dentist will usually match these to the colour and texture of your actual tooth. They can also be made out of metal alloys.

What Are Dental Implants And For How Long Do They Last?

Dental implants are a very effective way to replace missing teeth.  They are as strong as real teeth, and they typically last 10-15 years (range is 5 to 20 years). 

Dental implants may be classified as either endosteal or subperiosteal, depending on the relationship with the bone (basically, how deeply the implant is fitted).  Comprehensive imaging is required prior to this, at Ignite Medispa we have the latest cone-beam CT (CBCT) technology provided by Dentsply – Sirona. This means that we do not have to send our patients to separate centres for 3D imaging, as everything is done in-house at Ignite Medispa! 

 

How Do I Know If I Have A Dental Abscess?

A dental abscess, or tooth abscess, is where a bacterial infection causes the accumulation of pus inside a tooth or within the gums. 

At a basic level, pain on biting and/ or discharge coming from the gum adjacent to the affected tooth and/ or a bad odour from the mouth may suggest an abscess. 

The benefit of having on-site 3D imaging (cone beam CT) over just 2D imaging (basic X-rays) is that we’re able to fully assess for tooth abscesses, and, therefore, to provide definitive treatment sooner! 

 

Teeth Extractions

These aren’t the most pleasant but are sometimes necessary.  What is always necessary is that you follow the instructions given by the dentist (specific guidance depending on the extraction).  Typically, we advise relative rest for the first 24 hours, a soft diet for a few days, and to take medications as prescribed. A combination of paracetamol (e.g. Panadol) and ibuprofen (e.g. Nurofen) are great for managing pain associated with diseased teeth or after dental work.
