Botox & Dermal Fillers

Wrinkle treatment options are abundant today. While there are numerous over-the-counter products available, Botox and dermal fillers have become extremely popular among people for their effectiveness and long-lasting results. They will smooth wrinkles, skin folds and fine lines that can result as we get older. At A1 Dental Care, we provide both Botox and Dermal Filler treatments that give you a fresher, younger-looking complexion. These procedures are minimally invasive and offer quick results.

Botox:

Botulinum toxin or Botox is a muscle relaxer obtained from bacteria to treat dynamic wrinkles that occur around the eyes, mouth and in between your eyebrows. Apart from treating wrinkles and fine lines, Botox can also be used to treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis.

How Does The Botox Treatment Work?

Botox is injected in a very small concentration into the muscles, which will improve the look of frown lines between the eyebrows. It can also be injected into the area around the sides of the eyes to treat crow’s feet lines. The duration of results differs between individuals but usually ranges between three and six months.   

Dermal Fillers:

Dermal fillers are not only used to treat wrinkles and fine lines on the face but can also be used to plump up the cheeks and lips. Sometimes, they are used to reduce the appearance of scars and plump up other areas of the body such as breasts. While dermal fillers are injectable, they are available in different forms such as temporary gel solution, collagen, hyaluronic acid, poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate beads.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

As we age, the natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (youthful component) in the skin lessens, resulting in the development of wrinkles and fine lines. When dermal fillers are injected, they add subtle volume by lifting wrinkles and make a difference to your appearance. You will see the results once the treatment is completed and it will last for around 18 to 24 months.

If you are dealing with unwanted signs of aging and are looking for a cosmetic treatment, you can visit our clinic or call 03 93592070 to schedule an appointment today.

Mouth Guards

Accidents can happen while taking part in sports. Wearing a mouth guard helps to prevent structural damage to your jaw, gums, and teeth. While there are several mouth guards available to protect your teeth during sports, for a comfortable mouth guard, you can’t beat a custom-made piece provided in our A1 Dental Clinic. The mouth guards we supply are made from high-quality material that they can keep your mouth protected against damages.

Sports Mouth Guards:

Wearing protective mouth guards is a common practice while playing sports such as hockey, football, boxing, and other contact sports. These sports pose a high risk to your teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue, leading to damaged & chipped teeth, nerve damage, lost teeth and injury to the soft tissues. Wearing a mouth guard while taking part in these sports will give your mouth complete protection against injuries during an accidental impact.

Night Mouth Guard:

People who are suffering from clenching and grinding of their teeth during sleep may benefit from our night guards. Our night guard is a thin, transparent device that can be worn while you sleep to prevent the contact between lower and upper teeth. Our night guards have also proven to be an effective cure for patients who are suffering from chronic headaches and migraines.

Let’s Create Custom Mouth Guard For You…

To create your custom mouth guard, we will take an impression of your teeth. Using this impression, we create a 3-D model of your mouth which is then used to create the custom mouth guard. As we manage the entire process under one roof, you can get the mouth guard that is made to the correct specifications of your mouth.

So, if you or your family member is participating in contact sports or having teeth grinding habit, you can call A1 Dental Clinic at 03 93592070 for custom mouth guards.

Teeth Cleaning

A professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year can improve your oral health. This dental cleaning facilitates your home-care oral health regimen and gives your dentist an opportunity to locate areas in your mouth that may need special attention. At A1 Dental Clinic, we have dental hygienists who are specially trained to scale and polish teeth. The primary goals of our dental cleaning treatment is to

  • Prevent tooth decay that results from excessive tartar and plaque buildup.
  • Prevent and relieve from gum disease
  • Get rid of bad breath
  • Detect serious dental issues

What Happens During Your Teeth Cleaning Appointment?

Physical Exam:

Before we begin the actual cleaning process, our dental hygienist runs a physical examination of your entire mouth. If any problem is detected, we will determine the appropriate treatment option for your case. Otherwise, we will go over the teeth cleaning process.

Plague And Tartar Removal:

Our dentist uses a scaler to remove plaque and tartar around your gum line and in between your teeth. Brushing and flossing prevents plague from forming and hardening into tartar. If tartar is formed, you can get it removed only at the dental office.

Deep Cleaning:

After removing the tartar from your teeth, our hygienist brushes your teeth using a high-powered electric brush. This is a great way to achieve a deep clean and remove any tartar left behind.

Polishing:

Polishing is performed after scaling to remove the surface stains and make your teeth smooth and shiny. A unique instrument along with specially-formulated paste will be used to polish the teeth.

When we are done with teeth cleaning, you are likely to notice that your teeth are a bit whiter. So, if you are attending regular dental cleaning appointments, you may not require a teeth whitening procedure for improving the brightness of your smile.

Invisalign

If you are yearning for straight teeth but are cringing at the thought of wearing braces, you are in luck. A1 Dental Clinic offers Invisalign – a comfortable, clear alternative to conventional braces. It will help you achieve your desired results with minimal impact on your life.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign FawknerInvisalign is an invisible way of perfecting your smile without braces. This system involves a series of clear, removable plastic aligners which can gently move your teeth into their appropriate positions. Invisalign is also super comfortable because you don’t have to deal with irritation caused by wires and brackets. As it is removable, you can take it out to brush, floss and eat. Moreover, it is also invisible that no one can predict that you are wearing an aligner. With all these benefits, Invisalign is certainly a great option to consider for proper teeth alignment.

How Does Invisalign Work?

During your first visit, our dentist will examine your teeth and let you known if Invisalign works for you. If you are a good candidate, we will go over the process of making pictures, X-rays and digital impression of your teeth. With all of this information, we will create a digital 3D image of your mouth. Using this 3D model, custom-made aligners are created using smooth, BPA-free plastic, ensuring a perfect fit.

How Long Should Invisalign Be Worn?

To achieve the best result, you should be wearing aligners for about 22 hours per day, though you can take them out while eating and brushing. As your teeth move closer to their ideal place, we will give you a new set of aligners every two weeks. Your treatment gets completed when you are done with your last set of aligners. By this time, you will have a beautiful smile to show off.

Dental Check-ups

The practice of looking after your teeth and gums is essential to keep them healthy. As a part of maintaining good oral hygiene, it is recommended that you visit your dentist every six months for a routine dental checkup. Here at A1 Dental Clinic, we have experienced dentists to perform routine dental checkups and detect problems as early as possible. Early detection of dental issues makes it easier to treat the problem easily and quickly.

What Does Our Routine Dental Check-up Include?

At A1 Clinic, we perform thorough dental check-ups of the following:

  • Teeth – Examined for cracks, wear, decay and faulty fillings
  • Gums – Checked for signs of gum diseases
  • Mouth – Bones, tongue, cheeks, palate and other parts are checked for signs of any oral diseases.

During your routine dental checkup, we also recommend having x-ray examination of your teeth to uncover

  • Presence of periodontal disease
  • Infection in the bone
  • Decay between the teeth
  • Cysts, tumours or abscesses
  • Location of impacted teeth
  • Abnormalities in teeth development

Once the dental examination has been completed, your dentist will let you know what your oral health needs are and will prescribe you any necessary treatment to treat the problem. Sometimes, you may be required to schedule another appointment for a dental procedure. If your dental health is in perfect condition, we will schedule your next dental check-up for a date six months later.

Who Can Benefit From Routine Dental Check-up?

Our routine dental check-ups can benefit everyone from kids and teens to the adult. In kids, it prevents the teeth from getting decayed and ensures that your permanent tooth is strong and fit. In growing adults, routine checkup keeps the permanent teeth healthy which could result in healthy living.

Dental Braces

Dental braces are wire-based appliances used by orthodontists to align the crowded and misaligned teeth to their appropriate position. Apart from correcting misaligned teeth, the braces can also aid in jaw correction and improving your chewing ability. People from all over Fawkner & nearby trust A1 Dental Clinic for all their orthodontic requirements. We deploy the latest in teeth alignment technology to give you the best possible result.

When Should You Use Dental Braces?

  • Crooked or overcrowded teeth
  • Spaced tooth
  • Upper bite
  • Underbite
  • Uneven bite

How Do Dental Braces Work?

Braces work by applying gentle forces on the teeth. Due to the pressure placed, the teeth start moving to the required position. We will adjust your dental braces on a regular basis to ensure that your teeth move correctly and efficiently. While the average treatment time is between 18 and 24 months, it may vary from one person to another. After removing the braces, we will recommend wearing retainers to stop your teeth from moving further.

When Is The Best Time To Start Wearing Dental Braces?

Braces can be worn by both children and adults. Our orthodontists recommend parents to bring their kids to our dental clinic for an initial assessment as soon as they see the signs and symptoms of misaligned teeth. Beginning the treatment at the early stage avoids the need for a more complex dental procedure. Adult patients can start wearing braces at any age, but it takes a longer time to see some good results as they have denser bone structure than the little ones.

At A1 Dental Clinic, we believe that good orthodontic treatment begins with clear communication. So, call 03 93592070 and schedule an appointment for a free consultation with one of our orthodontists who will evaluate your oral health and recommend the best teeth alignment procedure that works great for you.

Dental Fillings

Dental FillingsA dental filling is a treatment procedure performed to restore missing tooth structure caused by decay or trauma. As the name implies, fillings seal the cavity in your tooth. This prevents the decay from spreading to the sensitive inner pulp located in the root canal. If you have a decayed tooth and would like to get filling done, you can approach the dentists at A1 Dental Clinic. We have dedicated, experienced dentists who will evaluate your specific oral health condition and your requirements to customise the procedure for you.

When To Consider Dental Filling?

  • A hole in your tooth
  • Chipped or broken tooth
  • Single or multiple cavities
  • Dark spots on the tooth
  • Sensitivity to cold or hot food.

If you have any of these signs and symptoms, you may be the candidate for dental filling treatment.

What’s The Procedure Involved in Dental Filling?

Step 1: We will inspect the infected tooth to determine the extent of the decay.

Step 2: To garner precise information, X-ray would be done.

Step 3: Local anesthesia will be administered to numb the area around the infected tooth.

Step 4: The dentist will prepare the decayed or damaged tooth for restoration.

Step 5: If the tooth is damaged, a small handpiece will be used to remove the damaged part.

Step 6: Depending upon your case, we will use appropriate filling material to fill the cavity.

Step 7: We will polish the finished tooth to complete the dental filling procedure.

There are several types of filling materials such as amalgam, composite resin, gold, and porcelain are available today. However, the dentist will choose the one depending upon the location and extent of the decay.

If you still have any question pertaining to dental filling procedure, dental implants, Invisalign or any other dental treatment, feel free to give A1 Dental Clinic a call at 03 93592070.

Dentures

Teeth loss can have a massive impact on your confidence and your quality of life. Whether you are missing most or all of your teeth, you could benefit from our custom-made dentures. Serving patients across Fawkner, A1 Dental Clinic will provide you with dentures that look natural, enhance your smile and restore your chewing ability.

What is Denture?

A denture is a removable dental appliance that is worn to replace missing or lost teeth. They are made of artificial or prosthetic teeth which are attached to a supporting structure. By having dentures fixed, you will appear youthful and be able to speak and chew food comfortably.

Types Of Dentures:

Basically, dentures are of two types – partial and complete dentures. While partial dentures fill in the spaces left by missing or lost teeth, complete dentures replace all of the natural teeth either in the lower or upper jaws. Whether you are missing one, two or all of your natural teeth, we can create natural looking dentures to restore your smile and oral health.

What Is The Treatment Procedure For Dentures?

Denture treatment begins with a complete dental check-up where the dentists at A1 Dental Clinic will evaluate your dental condition and recommend the best treatment option for you. As a part of our denture procedure, we require radiographs to assess whether your teeth are strong enough to hold a denture.

Once the evaluation of your oral health is completed, we will take impressions of your mouth and customise your denture to fit your mouth perfectly. Our dentists will work with you to tailor the size, shape, and colour of your dentures to your individual requirements.

So, if you would like to get the best results for your dentures, call 03 93592070 and get in touch with A1 Dental Clinic today. Let’s make you feel and look your best by promising you a beautiful smile.

Dental Crowns

Do you have a cracked, misshapen or worn down tooth? A dental crown may be the perfect treatment solution that can give your teeth a beautiful, natural look. Here at A1 Dental Clinic, we have several years of experience in crafting dental crowns that perfectly blend with your natural teeth.

How Could Dental Crowns Help You?

Dental CrownsDamaged or decayed teeth can cause a lot of pain and discomfort. Rather than dealing with this suffering, you can consider having dental crowns that cover up the damaged teeth and look and function like your natural teeth. Made from porcelain, our dental crowns will provide extra strength to your damaged teeth and minimise the risk of future breakdowns. In addition to protecting damaged and decayed teeth, our crowns can also be used to cover your badly shaped or discoloured teeth.

What Does The Dental Crown Procedure Involve?

Step 1: Inspection And Consultation:
During your visit to our dental clinic, we will take a look at your teeth to determine whether or not a crown is necessary for you. Depending on your particular case, we will either recommend crowns or advise you on the suitable options. If your case requires a crown, we will proceed further.

Step 2: Preparing Your Teeth For The Crown:

To start with, we will numb the tooth and the surrounding tissues if necessary. Then, we will begin to trim the tooth and shape it to accommodate the crown. Thereafter, an impression of your teeth, as well as the surrounding teeth, is taken.

Step 3: Placing A Temporary Crown:

Our dentist will place a prefabricated temporary crown on your tooth using a special adhesive. This will protect the tooth from further damages and prevent it from shifting.

Step 4: Placing A Permanent Crown:

When the permanent crown is ready, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and scuff off the cement. After numbing the tooth, your custom-made permanent crown will be placed on it.
