Gum Health Treatments

A healthy fresh mouth starts with healthy gums. Our hygienists will check where your plaque is tending to form. They’ll also check to see if there are any areas where your gums are beginning to detach from the teeth, forming a gum pocket. Remember that more adult teeth are extracted because of gum disease, than because of decay. To check your gums book your appointment with Western Dental.

Denture Stabilisation

Dentures stabilisation is a process that is required when wearing dentures has caused your gum and bone tissue to shrink in size. Over time, as the bone and gum tissue shrink, the dentures can become loose and you may experience problems with speaking and eating, as well as a degree of pain and discomfort caused by wearing poorly fitting dentures. Fix your dentures improve your ability to eat and speak, as well as ensuring you have a great looking, healthy smile.

dental implants sligo ballina tubbercurry swinford

Dental Implants

The most effective way of providing stabilisation for your dentures when this occurs, is to support them by dental implants which are titanium rods that are embedded into your gum.  They become incorporated into your jaw bone which can then have crowns and/or bridges attached to them to replace missing teeth. Here at Western Dental we use the 3i implant system. Further information on how 3i implants can be used to replace missing teeth and to stabilise your dentures are in this document.

dental bridges sligo ballina tubercurry swinford

Dental Bridges

A bridge is made up of two crowns one on each tooth on either side of the gap — these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by either natural teeth or dental implants. Here at Western Dental we recommend Resin-Bonded Bridges as an alternative option to replacing a missing tooth.

tooth coloured fillings sligo ballina tubbercurry

Tooth Coloured Fillings

As teeth decay or become damaged, the most cost effective way of treating the tooth and protecting it from further decay is to have it filled. Thankfully there are now alternative options to the silver fillings which are more natural looking and can blend with the natural colour of your own teeth.  Due to advancements in the dental sector there are now exciting newer tooth coloured materials that can be used for small to medium cavities on back teeth.

teeth whitening swinford sligo ballina tubbercurry

Teeth Whitening

At Western Dental we offer a “take-home” Teeth Whitening system. This teeth whitening system is gentler, longer-lasting and considerably less expensive than an in-office solution.  We make custom-fitted trays to accurately fit your mouth when using the teeth whitening bleach.  It is important that when using a teeth whitening product that you have your dentist make a very precise fitting tray.  A properly fitted mouth tray will prevent the bleaching gel from making contact with your gums which can cause irritation, or irritate your stomach due to you swallowing the bleach at night.
