If you need a dentist who can take care of your general dentistry needs, then our practice is here to help, but we can also assist with a wide range of other treatments too. From cosmetic dentistry to restorative treatments, as well as preventive care, Glenside Dental is on hand for your treatment needs. We provide more than the average general dentist Glenside!
An example of one of our treatments that falls under the restorative dentistry umbrella is implantation and our general dentist Glenside will be able to advise you on whether or not this is the most appropriate treatment for you. This is a treatment that is used for replacing missing teeth. If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be offered crowns, bridges or dentures. However, these can be fitted to your jawbone securely using dental implants. It’s a bit like ISOFIX in cars with car seats! There are screws, which are attached to the jawbone and to these we can then attach your replacement teeth. The body’s tissues heal around the screws and this ensures that they aren’t going to move when you eat or talk, so you should be able to rely on your replacement teeth for years to come! Like your natural teeth, you will just need to keep them clean by brushing and flossing - it couldn’t be easier to take care of them.
If you have mild to moderate alignment issues with your teeth, a cosmetic treatment you can undergo is Invisalign. Invisalign is a system that uses plastic aligners that are transparent, so when they are being worn, only the teeth should be visible. The aligners push the teeth into the correct position over time. Typically, treatment could take between 6 to 18 months, although this will vary from patient to patient. The aligners are removable, so you can take them out when you want to eat, and you can brush your teeth afterwards with nothing in your mouth to hinder you. Invisalign requires the aligners to be changed on a regular basis and we provide our patients with 6 weeks’ worth before seeing you for a check-up, so you won’t have to come and see us too often! So, whether you have issues such as a crossbite or overbite, an underbite or crowded teeth, Invisalign could be the treatment you need to improve the appearance of your smile.
