There is a difference between orthodontists, and we invite you to come and see what makes us special.
At Live Life Smiling, we do not limit ourselves purely to traditional techniques. We also employ recent innovations such as laser dentistry, which lets us work more efficiently and in sensitive areas with ease.
Laser dentistry is split into hard and soft tissue procedures, each requiring a specific ‘hard’ or ‘soft’ laser. Hard tissue procedures include killing tooth bacteria and spotting cavities, while soft procedures include reshaping the gum. These treatments can also sometimes be done in fewer sessions than non-laser work. Just talk about lasers in general not separated into hard and soft, one can do everything it’s all about the strength, this sterilises while they work as the practitioner does the work it sterilises the area while they work to prevent infection
We work with our patients to prevent many issues before they even develop, including by ensuring they follow the recommended routines. That means attending your regular dental check-ups, brushing twice a day, and flossing.
Too many people forego these simple tasks, even though they are proven to massively reduce a whole host of complications such as gingivitis. Better dental hygiene can also reduce your risk of developing diabetes, osteoporosis, and other health conditions. Our oral exams, X-rays, and teeth cleanings go a long way towards helping our patients prevent the onset of dental problems. Our oral exams, X-rays and oral hygiene appointments go a long way towards….then the rest is fine.
If you need a crown or bridge to reconstruct a damaged tooth, we can provide this while making sure nobody notices the difference. We use innovations in dental technology to scan your mouth and avoid the need for impressions, letting us create a computer model of exactly the shape we need.
Whether you need a crown to cap your tooth or a bridge to fill in your smile, the experts at Live Life Smiling can help. Our rigorous Newcastle-based quality control also allows us to produce the best we can – and we truly believe our patients deserve the best. instead say something more like: all to do with equipment, e.g our state of the art equipment used provides us to produce the best we can.
We have several filling options for our patients should they require them, available in several materials that each have their own advantages. Our direct fillings are made from glass or resin and can be applied in just one visit, while our indirect options include veneers, bridges and more made from ceramics and metals. These are more complicated and require several visits.
We mainly use glass compounds and plastics for front teeth. We do this to make sure the tooth’s natural appearance is not compromised. However, this will often depend on how extensive the filling needs to be. Not correct in Australia, change, look at another website for correct info.
If periodontal disease does set in, the Live Life Smiling team still have techniques to ensure your smile shines brightly once again. Our dentists can remove the hardened plaque (also known as tartar) during a polish or clean the root of the tooth of aggressive bacteria.
You can only get off using scalers, special instruments or high pressure air but is incorrect so our hygiene and dental services can remove. If gum disease does start to present itself. Our hygienists and dentists have the ability to bring your teeth back to health through the use of state of the art equipment.
One of the only options will be to have dental surgery, which can mean losing the tooth. This is why preventative care is important; it might just be the best way to avoid the need for any of the other treatments. If gum progresses to the severe stage, there is a real possibility that you could lose your teeth. This is why preventative care is important. Something
