Orthodontics (Braces)

Orthodontic treatment is concerned with the alignment of teeth. During orthodontic treatment, fixed braces can be worn to gradually move crooked or overcrowded teeth into correct alignment. Orthodontics is no longer just for kids, with advances in discreet, clear braces becoming a popular option for adults.
We offer three different solutions depending on your requirements and budget; Fixed Braces, Invisalign and Short Term Braces. Your dentist will assess your need and can help choose the right teeth straightening options for you. You can see some examples of our previous cases below...

Dental Implants

At Westside Dental we offer implants to replace single tooth gaps or to replace the entire mouth for patients with no teeth.

Patients often have a number of questions about what implants are and what they can do for them. Implants are a small titanium screw which replaces the root of the tooth. Once it is healed in the bone, it can be restored with a crown which looks, feels and functions just like a normal tooth when it was healthy, natural and beautiful.

Implants have many advantages including looking just like a natural tooth, not damaging adjacent teeth and having a high success rate. They restore your bite and function so you can eat the steak you can't eat with a missing tooth. Implants feel just like natural decay and don't decay.

Implants are an excellent restoration for people who want to replace a single missing tooth. If you have no teeth, implants can replace all your teeth to give you stable dentures that don't move about when you chew your food.

What are the steps involved?

The procedure is customised to your exact clinical situation however the replacement of a single tooth would normally involve the following steps.
The failed tooth is removed and a temporary restoration (tooth) is supplied so you never have to go without a tooth. Some weeks later the implant is placed involving the very careful and gentle insertion of the titanium implant at the location of a previous tooth.
A few months later the implant can be used to support a new tooth that will function and look much like a natural tooth.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Implants have a number of advantages including:

➤ Good success rates (95% still in function after 10 years).
➤ Very aesthetic result - looks like a natural tooth.
➤ Conservative - doesn't affect teeth on either side.
➤ Restores function to improve biting and chewing.
➤ Doesn't decay like natural teeth.
➤ Maintains bone in the area of the implant.
