My child’s permanent teeth are coming in crooked. Is now the right time to seek a consultation?

At Gisborne Family Dental, we understand the interest you may have in braces and orthodontics for your young children.

Some factors such as genetic predisposition and early childhood health issues can cause underdevelopment of jaw bones, and hence showing the signs of your child’s permanent teeth coming in crooked at a fairly young age.

Like most conditions, underdeveloped jaws and crooked teeth may not affect function or cause any noticeable problems when it’s early and in milder forms. However, if allowed to progress, they can often lead to much bigger issues such as misalignment of upper and lower jaws, jaw pain, and uneven wear and tear of teeth.

There are some conditions where earlier treatment can prevent much bigger problems down the track, for example, a crossbite. If you suspect your child has jaw underdevelopment or crooked teeth, we encourage you to visit us for an orthodontic screening consultation at our Gisborne clinic.

Our dentist will assess and advise accordingly on whether there are reasons for concern, and if any orthodontic treatment such as braces for your child may be required.

How are childhood sleep issues or nasal breathing problems related to crooked teeth?

Nasal breathing disturbance is linked to poor sleep and can happen to adults or children. It is more dangerous in children as their brain development is affected, and it’s harder to detect because children don’t tend to snore audibly.

How can dentists detect it? When nasal breathing is inefficient, the patient becomes a mouth breather. Because of the mouth breathing, jaw bones don’t develop normally and teeth continue to come through into the smaller jaw that lacks space. This is what often creates the appearance of crooked teeth.

Did you have teeth removed and braces as a teenager and now want your child to have a better outcome and less trauma?

Traditional orthodontics sometimes took the “shortcut” of removing healthy adult teeth in order to straighten teeth with braces, leaving a compromised result and more traumatic patient experience.

At Gisborne Family Dental, we avoid this by intervening early enough, when there’s still natural growth potential to harness.

We use devices that gently guide and promote growth of jaw bones, with the help of a compliant patient. This way the jaw bone is grown to accommodate all the teeth, the way nature meant for it to be.

We avoid the need to remove healthy adult teeth, therefore less trauma for you and your children. Other benefits of this orthodontic and braces method include a general health improvement due to a larger jaw, maintaining healthy airways, and better facial features – think nice wide smiles and high cheekbones!

We are all about the best possible orthodontic care for you and your family. It takes a holistic team to do that.

When we’re able to identify underdevelopment issues earlier, we’re not only able to create healthy jaws and straight teeth.

You and your family will also benefit from better general health, improved facial features, as well as performing better in everyday activities.

The different parts of the human body work in sync with each other, and therefore we may recommend you to seek care from other health professionals, such as a medical GP, an ENT specialist, a sleep physician, an osteopath or a myotherapist.

We can help you achieve the smile you want.

Comprehensive Care

At Gisborne Family Dental, we believe in looking after you as a whole person, not just as a mouth of teeth. We take into account everyone’s past circumstances, present situations, and try to “crystal-ball” the future, so that we can tailor our general dentistry services to each individual.

We’re all the same. And we’re all different.

If you compare a 49 year old vegetarian accountant, and a 19 year old university student living out of home, they may both have the same number of teeth, tongue, jaws and maybe even the same model electric toothbrush.

But we understand that they will have vastly different lifestyle habits, daily routines and dental challenges. All these result in different sets of health risks, and therefore our philosophy is to always help patients find the best ways to maintain their best self.

Preventative dentistry is about creating health, not just fixing diseases.

For too long dentistry in general has focused on fixing broken teeth, or waiting for something to go wrong before stepping in. Let’s be honest, when we get the frantic toothache phone call, everybody gets stressed.

Our focus will always be to equip you with knowledge and information, so that you’re empowered to firstly look after yourself, and secondly be able to make the right dental treatment decisions when required.

We meticulously examine your teeth for early warning signs, so that smaller interventions are required to nip things in the bud. You will ultimately have a far better experience and also save on future pain and costs.

In our mind, this is hands down a win-win.

How we do general dentistry at Gisborne Family Dental

We are extremely thorough, even in our general dentistry check ups and cleans. We take time to get to know you, how you live. Most importantly, we want to know what you want for yourself…. and we listen carefully.

We then gather all the information clinically including photos and x-rays and we sit down and we think about what the best general dentistry service for your unique situation is , because we care.

Lastly, we clearly discuss your dental options with you, so that you’re empowered and feel confident in choosing what’s right for your own goals, budget and lifestyle.

Gum Disease is the silent epidemic

Did you know that gum disease is among the most common health conditions affecting adults worldwide? And what’s worse, is that in the majority of cases, gum disease is painless and can fester for years and years before showing any noticable signs. We’ve seen many cases of gum disease being left for too long and resulted in the patient losing valuable teeth and ultimately being unable to eat well and feeling very embarrassed by their smile.

Good gum maintenance gives you solid foundations

Your gums (or in dental lingo – periodontal tissues) actually comprise the soft pink attached skin wrapping around your teeth, connective tissue attachments, and the bone surrounding the teeth roots.

These form solid bases to hold your teeth in your jaw, so that they have the strength to chew through your favourite nutty muesli and pizza crusts. Your healthy gums also hold your teeth in fixed positions while you flash a smile for the photographer at your birthday bash.

In contrast, diseased gums are inflamed and irritated. They bleed, swell, recede, and enter a cycle of continuous destruction. Some other signs of gum disease that may show up include bad breath, general area discomfort that’s worse after meals.

As the gum disease progresses, it can cause looseness of teeth, more severe and constant pain, and can even lead to your teeth falling out completely painlessly. Imagine waking up to a tooth on your pillow one morning – not nice!

You can get gum disease assessment and treatment at your local dentist

Here are some of the common reasons that cause gum disease. It is not an exhaustive list, but can be a screening tool. How many of these apply to you?

  • Not using dental floss / interdental brushes / water-flosser to clean in between your teeth daily.
  • Family history / genetics (Did your parents or grandparents lose some of their teeth at a fairly young age?)
  • Are you / were you a smoker?
  • Do you have a nutritional deficiency, e.g. lacking in vitamin C?
  • Do you have any chronic medical conditions such as an autoimmune condition or diabetes?
  • Have you had any hormonal changes due to reasons such as pregnancy, menopause etc.?

Fear not, there is hope for your periodontitis

With early detection and intervention, periodontitis (gum disease) is one of those conditions that responds really well to conservative treatment.

Guided by our holistic approach, we work with you to identify all of the hereditary, medical, lifestyle, and habitual factors that may be contributing to your gum condition, and create a plan to improve your gum issues one by one.

The treatment often involves ensuring your gum tissues surrounding your teeth are free of plaque and debris that harbour bacteria. We then equip you with all the necessary techniques and knowledge to be able to do your gum maintenance at home easily and efficiently.

This gum maintenance advice is tailored to you, so that it fits your condition, your mouth, and your lifestyle. Our experience in seeing a vast variety of patients means that we know how to work with shift workers who are brushing at odd times, people suffering from hand arthritis and are not able to floss, and the average joe who may be just a little lazy for dental and gum maintenance.

Our goal is to help you care for your gums and teeth, so that you can enjoy your food and your smile, and hopefully spend less time in the dental chair.

We can help get your gums assessed and brought back to health.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Specialists in Gisborne

Not unlike the tailbone and the appendix, our wisdom teeth have been around for a long long time, and evolved slowly over the years. But the need for wisdom teeth removal has only come around in more recent times.

Evidence shows that the human jaw used to be bigger and had more room to accommodate these third molars known as wisdom teeth. However as we changed our diet and lifestyle, our jaw and facial bones evolved in shape and size to be sleeker and smaller. As a result, a lot of us don’t have enough space in our jaw bone to comfortably fit our four wisdom teeth.

What a pain in the jaw!

Most wisdom teeth related pain starts in your late teens or early twenties. It comes in waves of one to two weeks, and can recur every couple of months. Your pain could be due to eruption movement of the wisdom teeth through bone tissue, inflammation, or indirectly causing teeth grinding or cheek biting.

When your wisdom teeth are partially through your gum, you can also get an infection of the surrounding gums due to food accumulation, and this causes you very severe pain and can lead to infection of other neighbouring structures.

We’ve certainly also seen delayed wisdom teeth removals lead to the decay of neighbouring teeth, and subsequently having to extract the wisdom tooth as well as the tooth next to it.

A wisdom tooth extraction is a short term loss and long term gain

Some of our dentists at Gisborne Family Dental have special interests and extra training in different fields within dentistry, including wisdom tooth extraction and removal.

We recommend identifying risk factors as early as possible, so that you’re less likely to experience any severe pain or emergencies, or have long-lasting damages to your other teeth. Wisdom teeth are usually non-functional, therefore removing them will prevent future problems, and you’re unlikely to feel any difference in how you eat.

Our wisdom tooth extraction planning process usually starts with an x-ray or scan, followed by careful planning, so that the procedure goes smoothly and predictably when the time comes to remove your problematic wisdom teeth.

Coupled with our sleep dentistry service, you can have your wisdom teeth removal surgery performed in a safe and relaxed manner, so that all you have to do is focus on a smooth sailing recovery process.

Sleep Dentistry Specialists in Gisborne

At Gisborne Family Dental, we specialise in sleep dentistry meaning you can have easy, stress free dental treatments without having to travel!

Imagine if you could fall into a deep sleep, have a dream about being on the beach lying in a hammock with sunlight streaming through the palm leaves, and you’re feeling utterly zen listening to the sounds of the waves.

As the waiter approaches with your cocktail, you gently awaken to find that all your dental treatment has been completed, and you have no memory of the sensations usually felt during a dental procedure. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Well it’s totally possible.

Dentistry while you sleep is a wise decision for a positive experience

If you need larger dental procedures done, especially those that are more surgical in nature, you will have an infinitely more positive and comfortable experience should you choose to have it done while you sleep with our sedation dentistry facilities.

Moreover, your dentist usually takes less time to perform the dental treatment procedures to the highest standards possible, as you will be completely relaxed and asleep.

Some of the dentistry commonly performed while you sleep includes:

  • Removal of wisdom teeth
  • Implant surgery
  • Multiple fillings
  • Multiple crowns and bridges

A dentist that puts you to sleep for treatment can be like hitting the reset button

Do you sweat from your palms when you think about visiting the dentist and wish you could just be put to sleep for your treatment?

If you have had a bad dentist experience in the past, especially in childhood, receiving dental treatment while being awake can be very confronting.

The barrier of trauma created by those bad experiences can take a long time and patience to overcome, and we are on board to help you with that. However if you have a significant amount of dental treatment required in order to get you back to health, it is important to ensure you receive this care with some urgency so that your condition doesn’t deteriorate and ultimately lead to bigger problems and more pain.

Utilising sleep dentistry to undergo your dental treatment would definitely help with “resetting” your oral health to a safe and stable state. You can then patiently focus on maintenance and rebuilding your confidence in attending preventive visits 2-3 times a year.

Gisborne Family Dental is the perfect dentist for scared patients

The dental maintenance visits are designed to be minimal and paced at your comfort so that eventually you will no longer be fearful of attending dental visits. Also if there are any issues that are identified early, it can be nipped in the bud with a smaller treatment that tends to be easier to tolerate.

At Gisborne Family Dental, we are always focused on getting you back on the track of health, putting you back in control.

We can help you achieve the smile you want.

Contact us and find out if sleep dentistry is right for you.
