Restoring your SMILE
Oral Rehabilitation means restoration of your teeth. Even if you haven't visited the dentist in a while, chances are your teeth will remain in a healthy condition. However, if you do require dental treatment, then our dentists can fix broken teeth with veneers or composite bonding and replace any missing teeth with dental implants.
We always say that the first step back to oral health is an informal chat with one of our caring team members. We'll provide you with a tailored treatment plan, discuss all of the options available to you, and our staff will support you throughout your journey to your best smile ever.
Typical tooth wear problems and associated symptoms
Everybody’s teeth gradually wear over time. The average front tooth is 11mm long. If we lived to 100 years old and our teeth are wearing normally we would lose about a millimetre. So, if you are 30 and your teeth seem short- you have abnormal tooth wear! And it will not get better. There are three main causes of tooth wear:
This can be from fruit, fizzy drinks, alcohol, even mouthwashes or from stomach acid reflux (GORD), which a lot of people have and don’t even know it.
This can be from incorrect tooth brushing and abrasive toothpastes.
This is when the teeth rub or grind together often subconsciously, when stressed or asleep (Bruxism).
Any combination of these can give rise to one or more problems such as:
1. Frequent repeated chipping of teeth
2. Fillings keep falling out- repeated lost restorations
3. One tooth after another breaks or fractures
4. Discolouration of teeth
5. Bad taste on waking
6. Dry mouth
7. Hoarse voice in mornings
8. Can See visible vertical hairlines cracks in front teeth
9. Mobile teeth
10. Tender teeth
12. Jaw joint pain
13. Neck pain
14. Tired jaws
15. Short teeth
16. Sensitive teeth
17. Gummy smile
If you have any of the above signs or symptoms – you could have tooth wear problems!

oral rehabilitation TREATMENTS
If you have worn or damaged teeth, it is important that you don’t lose any more of your tooth surface. Addition Dentistry is done by adding back to your own teeth without drilling to give you back a beautiful smile, better chewing ability and efficiency, and more comfort generally.
Restorative dental therapy can also reduce headaches and tired jaws; decrease clicky jaw joints; and make your teeth feel less sharp or sore on the tongue or cheeks, yet better at chewing. It can also make it easier for you to keep your mouth healthy and clean.
Usually, Oral Rehabilitation means restoration of all of the teeth. However, it could also be defined as restoring only the defective teeth. Using our expertise and knowledge in all aspects of restorative dentistry, we're committed to helping our patients achieve optimum dental health, function and aesthetics. Whether your dental problem is large or small, you have one concern or several, we can use a variety of dental treatments to help get your dental health back on track.
