Den­tal To­day: High-tech makes all the dif­fer­ence

Central Leader - - News -

Let’s face it, first im­pres­sions are cru­cial in so­cial life. But without good teeth and gums, not only does your ap­pear­ance and con­fi­dence suf­fer, ba­sic tasks like eat­ing and speak­ing be­come dif­fi­cult as well.

How­ever, you don’t have to suf­fer in si­lence as qual­ity den­tistry is now within reach.

One­hunga-based Den­tal To­day is a fam­ily ori­ented prac­tice where you can ob­tain com­pre­hen­sive den­tal ser­vices in a stress-free en­vi­ron­ment.

Ex­pe­ri­enced den­tist Dr Jo­hay Amith, who has more than 15 years in den­tal im­plant, has a gen­tle ap­proach which im­me­di­ately puts pa­tients at ease.

Dr Amith says den­tal im­plants can re­place miss­ing teeth and rep­re­sent an al­ter­na­tive to den­tures or bridge­work. The ad­van­tages vary by pa­tient and type of restora­tion but may in­clude sta­bilised loose den­tures, im- proved chew­ing abil­ity, bet­ter speech, greater com­fort, and im­proved self-es­teem.

The im­plant it­self is made from a ti­ta­nium al­loy and is sur­gi­cally im­planted in the jaw­bone to func­tion like the root of your miss­ing tooth. Im­plants are usu­ally placed un­der lo­cal anaes­the­sia in the den­tist’s of­fice.

The pro­ce­dure in­volved in plac­ing the im­plants is gen­er­ally no more painful than hav­ing any reg­u­lar den­tal treat­ments.

Along with im­plants, Den­tal To­day pro­vides In­visalign, which is the lat­est high-tech way to straighten teeth without the need for un­sightly braces.

In­visalign is the in­vis­i­ble way to straighten teeth us­ing custom-made, nearly un­de­tectable aligners. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wear­ing braces, you will have a new rea­son to smile.

Den­tal To­day looks af­ter all the reg­u­lar den­tal needs of pa­tients, to­gether with cos­metic den­tistry, root canal treat­ment, im­plants, teeth whiten­ing, crowns, bridges and den­tures.

At Den­tal To­day the ini­tial ex­am­i­na­tion and con­sul­ta­tion is free; the den­tist will ad­vise you of the treat­ment needed, de­tails and ben­e­fits of each op­tion.

The prac­tice hours are 9am-6pm Mon­dayFri­day and Satur­day by ap­point­ment.

Den­tal To­day is in the blue bun­ga­low at 66 Church St, One­hunga, with plenty of cus­tomer park­ing.
