Don’t Let Tooth Damage Prevent A Lovely Smile

There are numerous reasons why teeth become damaged ranging from a sports injury or an accident while playing - we see quite a few children who have experienced this - to decay, disease or trauma. Where possible we aim to re-use the broken or dislodged tooth and when this is not possible we have a wide range of solutions to suit our patients. Take a look at our restorative services and you will quickly see that with the cutting edge technology and materials available to us there is no reason why tooth damage should leave you in discomfort or without a lovely smile. "


Tooth damage might involve root canal, gum disease, wisdom teeth or dislodged and knocked out teeth. 
If you are affected by one of the following scenarios we recommend that you contact WDental for a successful solution.

Root Canal Treatment

Root CanalThe root canal refers to the area that runs through the middle of the roots of your teeth. 
This soft tissue - also called dental pulp - is made up of nerves and blood vessels. It is your tooth’s life line providing nutrition and sensory feedback.
When the canal is damaged by decay, disease or trauma it can be repaired with root canal treatment (endodontics). Where possible we want to save the tooth because a natural tooth is better than an artificial one or no tooth at all.

Gum Disease

If you have any of the following conditions you could be suffering from a form of gum disease:
  •  Swollen and sore gums which are red in colour
  •  Bad taste in the mouth
  •  Bleeding while brushing or flossing
  •  Gums that have separated from the teeth
  •  Loose teeth or teeth that are drifting apart
  •  Chronic bad breath

Gum disease is the most common cause of tooth loss and is most commonly Gingivitis or the more serious Periodontitis. Because there is little oral discomfort, gum disease is often ignored until it is too late.
Gingivitis is caused by inadequate brushing and flossing of teeth which allows a build-up of plaque. The bacteria which live in plaque irritate the gums and cause oral infection. 
When Gingivitis is left unchecked it can lead to Periodontitis which is a more destructive type of disease. This not only affects the superficial gums it also causes the bone that supports your teeth to recede or dissolve. The result is loose teeth and tooth loss.

Wisdom Teeth

Also known as “third molars”, wisdom teeth most commonly push through the gums when people are in their teenage years or their Twenties. In some cases they cause problems later on in life. 
Wisdom teeth can cause damage to the teeth in front of them, which are preventing them from breaking through the gum, as well as bone and gum infections, cysts, headaches, ear aches and facial pain.
Using our sophisticated digital x-ray equipment we are able to determine the best possible solution.

Dislodged & Knocked Out Teeth

When an infant or a child loses baby teeth there is no need to attempt to put them back in the mouth, however when an adult loses a permanent tooth (called an avulsed tooth) it is a very serious matter.
It is important that an adult react quickly after a trauma experience because if their tooth is not replaced within 30 minutes of being knocked out the chances of survival are greatly reduced.
We recommend that you take the following steps to optimise the chances of tooth survival and this includes coming to our practice as soon as possible:
  •  find the knocked out permanent tooth
  •  don’t touch the root of the tooth, only handle it by the crown (top)
  •  gently rinse the tooth with a saline solution of milk, do not scrub it
  •  do not use tap water because it contains chlorine which may damage the root
  •  keep the tooth from drying out by placing it back in the socket in your mouth and holding it in place or
  •  store the tooth in milk
If you are playing sport we recommend that you wear a mouth guard.
