Dental phobia


Dental phobia is a serious and often paralyzing fear of some people seeking dental care.

It has been reported that 50% of the population does not seek regular dental care.
An estimated 12-15% of all these avoid much needed care due to high anxiety and fear surrounding the dental experience.

In terms of your dental health and overall well being, this can have serious ramifications. Besides chronically infected gums and teeth, which can affect your medical status, your ability to chew and digest can be seriously compromised. Without healthy gums and teeth, your speech can be affected as well. Your self confidence can be compromised if you are insecure about your breath and smile.

This can lead to serious limitations in both your social and business environments. We care about your dental phobia and try to uncover the reason for the fear. Once we have established a trust and understanding between us and have overcome the fear then we can start to treat you. The laser will make your treatment much more comfortable and also acceptable, because in most cases we will not use needles and avoid the dental drill (old road drill).

Patients who have overcome their dental fear at North Street Dental Care are at later stages asking us for assistance in improving their appearance further.

Dentistry is no longer perceived as a service to simply fill or extract teeth, but is recognized as providing us with the ability to improve our smiles through the provision of cosmetic dentistry such as cosmetic fillings, laser tooth whitening, veneers, crowns and implants.

Are you happy with the appearance of your smile? Do you also suffer from pain and discomfort? Do you often feel that you would like to be able to change some aspect of your smile?

If the answer to either of these questions is in the affirmative, then laser cosmetic dentistry at North Street Dental Care could be the answer for you.

TOOTH WHITENING

I want to have a white bright smile! but how?

Tooth whitening, sometimes referred to as "bleaching", is a treatment provided by your dentist that can lighten the color of your natural teeth. For many patients this treatment can make their overall dental appearance far more attractive, giving a brighter smile.

Some teeth are naturally too pigmented, or stained, as they develop. Intrinsic staining and discoloration may be due to factors such as tetracycline, high fluoride intake or even injury. Exposure to coffee, tea, juices, red wine or tobacco accounts for much of the darkening as we age.

North Street Dental Care has recently introduced the revolutionary laser tooth whitening. Laser whitening is a very painless procedure and this will lighten the color of your natural teeth. We can lighten your teeth up to eight shades in less than 60 minutes.

WHITE CERAMIC FILLING

Many people have fillings in their mouths, these often tend to be silver or metal fillings, known as amalgam fillings (mercury containing fillings), especially towards the rear of the mouth. Nowadays it is possible to have white or tooth coloured fillings placed instead, and these are known as ceramic fillings. A ceramic filling is more natural looking than an amalgam filling, and many people would prefer to have them in order that they are not displaying metal fillings when they laugh or smile. Most European countries have stopped using amalgam as a filling material because of concerns about the safety of the mercury and its side effects such as allergy and tiredness. At North Street Dental Care we offer laser white fillings.

VENEERS

Veneers are thin slices of Porcelain. These are precisely made to fit over the visible surface of front teeth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail (but much thinner). Veneers are an ideal way to treating discoloured or unsightly teeth, closing gaps between front teeth, or repairing chips and cracks.

Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, because they are thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super glue). Very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Veneers can last for many years.

There's no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. Today a veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature's mistake or the results of an injury and help you have a beautiful smile. This is widely used among the stars to get a Hollywood smile.

Veneers are thin, custom made shells crafted of tooth colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They're made by a dental technician, usually in a dental lab, working from a model provided by your dentist.

CROWNS

A crown or "cap" is a tooth shaped cover that is made to fit over your teeth. Crowns are usually the preferred option when a patient has badly chipped or fractured teeth, or perhaps when there is a tooth that has been heavily filled but is breaking down.

Sometimes a patient may have a tooth that has never properly formed or is very badly discolored, and a crown may be the best option to restore the tooth to a natural looking appearance. Tooth colored porcelain, sometimes attached to a metal inner shell for greater strength, is generally the most common type of crown used, however there are also gold or other non-precious metal crowns that can be provided, and your dentist will advise on the best possible material for your own particular circumstances.

BRIDGES

A bridge is a false tooth, made of porcelain or porcelain and metal, which are used to fill the gap left by a missing tooth. Although bridges are often attached or fused to crowns that fit over the teeth on either side of the gap, there are other types requiring different technique that can be fitted in areas where there is less stress placed upon them, such as the front of the mouth.

Those people who have a missing tooth will know how much their appearance, and smile, can be affected by having a gap in their teeth. Quite apart from any impact on your appearance, a missing tooth that is not replaced can also allow other teeth to drift gradually into this space, or can allow the opposing teeth to grow up or down into this gap. This movement of your teeth can lead to further problems, e.g. there may be greater difficulty in adequately cleaning those teeth that have altered position, leading to potential gum disease and tooth decay, and further treatment being required. Another potential problem is that when your teeth change position you may find this can affect the way that you would normally bring your teeth together, and this can lead to problems with the joint connecting your upper and lower jaws, headaches and other difficulties.



DENTURES

If youíve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. Youíll be able to eat and speak, things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.

There are various types of complete dentures. A conventional full denture is made and placed in the patientís mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed which may take several months. An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed. The dentist takes measurements and makes models of the patientís jaws during a preliminary visit. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.

Even if you wear full dentures, you still must take good care of your mouth. Brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning with a soft bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque.

GUM/BONE DISEASES

Gum disease (also called periodontal disease) is an infection of the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, however, you may not know you have it.

Gum disease is an inflammation in the gums, bone, and tissues that surround and support the teeth. Gum disease is most likely to affect adults over 30, although anyone is at risk. In the United States, about 66% of young adults, 80% of middle-aged people, and 90% of people older than 65 have some form of gum disease.

ROOT CANAL TREATMENTS

Your dentist uses root canal treatment to find the cause and then treat problems of the tooth's soft core (the dental pulp). Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were removed. Today, root canal treatment has given dentists a safe way of saving teeth.

Underneath your tooth's outer enamel and within the dentin is an area of soft tissue called the pulp, which carries the tooth's nerves, veins, arteries and lymph vessels. Root canals are very small, thin divisions that branch off from the top pulp chamber down to the tip of the root. A tooth has at least one but no more than four root canals.

When the pulp becomes infected due to a deep cavity or fracture that allows bacteria to seep in, or injury due to trauma, it can die. Damaged or dead pulp causes increased blood flow and cellular activity, and pressure cannot be relieved from inside the tooth. Pain in the tooth is commonly felt when biting down, chewing on it and applying hot or cold foods and drinks.

Without treatment, the infection will spread, bone around the tooth will begin to degenerate, and the tooth may fall-out. Pain usually worsens until one is forced to seek emergency dental attention. The only alternative is usually extraction of the tooth, which can cause surrounding teeth to shift crookedly, resulting in a bad bite. Though an extraction is cheaper, the space left behind will require an implant or a bridge, which can be more expensive than root canal therapy. If you have the choice, it's always best to keep your original teeth.

A root canal is a procedure done to save the damaged or dead pulp in the root canal of the tooth by cleaning out the diseased pulp and reshaping the canal. The canal is filled with gutta percha, a rubberlike material, to prevent recontamination of the tooth. The tooth is then permanently sealed with possibly a post and/or a gold or porcelain crown. This enables patients to keep the original tooth.

IMPLANTS

A dental implant is nothing more than a metal screw that is placed into the jaw bone. It acts as an anchor for a false tooth or a set of false teeth.

If you want a dental implant you must have enough bone in the area of the missing teeth to provide for the anchorage of the implant. Some people are missing all there teeth and most of those are excelent candidat for dental implants, but today, we use implants to replace small bridges, removeable partial dentures and even missing single teeth.

Dental implants are the most natural, permanent replacement available for missing teeth. They eliminate gaps and fit comfortably in place, requiring no filing down of neighboring teeth as other tooth replacement methods sometimes do. Implant dentistry involves the surgical placement of a dental implant, which is carefully capped with a natural looking, personalized crown.
