Completing RCT - What I need to do after pain has gone?

After three long appointments and now that you are finally out of pain. You may think the tooth is now fully root canal treated with no further action. If left without a crown as a helmet it is like having surgery and you say to the surgeon “dont worry about stitching up, I’ll just walk out”. Bring inside the mouth it is often hard to tell, but if you dont complete the treatment with a crown you risk loosing the whole tooth. In worst cases, even after all this investment, you may have to extract the tooth as it could still develop bacteria and infection into the roots. Meaning, you need an extraction + an implant.

Keeping your natural tooth as long as you can is always better than getting an implant.At Abc Dental we offer same day crowns too. We also have our own inhouse lab.
This means you can choose to do same day crowns $1750 or a one week wait crown $1100. There is a small difference in price but it is the same great quality. You can ask our friendly staff about by calling (02) 8383 1400 We dont have restrictions on where you can and can't go within our locations.

We are in convenient shopping centre locations Bondi Junction, Macquarie Centre, Sydney, Miranda, Chatswood, Green Hills (East Maitland) and Warringah Mall. Call (02) 8383 1400 to make an appointment/ discuss the importance of a crown after root canal treatment at Abc Dental

Metal vs Composite/ Porcelain: Think long term!

In the past, metal fillings have been the only option available when you needed a crown. Even now, you may encounter that many places offer amalgam fillings, or commonly known as metal fillings. The problem with this is that you would be left with a shiny, inauthentic looking tooth blatantly shining its existence to your friends, family and coworkers!
Rest assured, we are here to offer you an aesthetic, natural material- porcelain/ composite!

These porcelain/ composite materials are tooth-coloured and durable. It will offer you a natural smile that you couldn’t fully have with your metal fillings!
Here at ABC Dental, we can replace your existing metal fillings with this appealing option in just one single visit.

But you might ask, “Why porcelain or composite if they have the same function as a metal filling?”. The benefits of composite fillings aren’t just ‘better aesthetics!’.

The benefits of replacing metal fillings are:
No Gum Line Discolouration: gum line discolouration is a common allergic reaction caused by metal fillings. With composite or porcelain, you won’t have to suffer these risks.
No Leakages: Metal fillings can deteriorate over time. In contrast, these tooth-colured fillings won’t break down, meaning you won’t have to return to the dentist for additional repairs.

Now, the Why at ABC Dental?

At ABC Dental, we offer a number of benefits when it comes to replacing metal fillings.

  • Cutting-Edge CEREC Technology: We use the latest technology to maximise patient comfort and to optimise results!

  • On-site Crowns: All of our equiptment is on-site. This means your crowns or porcelain fillings are available in high quality materials, and in a quicker time!

  • One Appointment Procedures: As everything is on-site, you can get your new crowns/ porcelain fillings in just one appointment.

  • No Rough Temporaries: We take digital impressions. This means that you don’t have to suffer through a rough, temporary crown in your mouth while you wait for your new ones.

  • Customised colours: We use a variety of shades and colours to custom match your natural tooth colour. This enables a customised colour and a perfect match to the aesthetics of your whole mouth!

Why wait?
If you have an old existing filling that is ruining the aesthetics of your mouth, come by any time and we will make it suitable for you.

Treating RCT - What I need to know when I'm in pain?

Firstly, we need to detect if it is root canal treatment that you require. Sometimes, it's just that you were brushing too hard and you just need to brush softly around the gums. If the pain is throbbing and it's keeping you awake in the night. Please TAKE PAIN KILLERS don't try to win the pain cause trust us. You will loose. Call us immediately we are open all 7 days (02) 8383 1400 and book an appointment with our dentists. Root Canal is a very common procedure that dentists treat almost every day of the week. Sometimes even three times a day. For patients, it is painful and expensive, and Abc Dental hears you. At ABC Dental, we seek to turn even this intensive dental procedure into one that promotes relaxation and comfort while remaining cost-effective.

Our preventive approach to care is designed to proactively monitor decay during checkups every 6 months. By doing so, we can prevent tooth decay from reaching the roots to preserve your smile. If you find yourself in a situation where decay has reached the nerves of a tooth, there’s no need to worry. Instead, you can have peace of mind turning to ABC Dental and our advanced root canal therapy techniques.

The full root canal treatment comes in 3 stages.

1st Appointment Usually includes two stages.

Stage 1: Expiration of the Nerve
Stage 2: Expiration of the Nerve and Obturation - filling the tooth with Medication and Temporary Cap until the root is fully cleaned from bacteria and infection.

2nd Appointment Usually includes Stage 3 Prep for crown
By this stage, you would have completely be out of pain. But don't be fooled! It is still very prone to developing a new infection that can cause more pain than the last time. At this appointment, you will need to prep the tooth to cap it with a crown. But until the crown is made you will be provided with a temporary crown. You must come back to the crown insert. At Abc Dental we offer CEREC same day crowns that may not require you to come back for a third appointment. More on this in the next blog.

As this is a very common treatment it is available from all our locations.
We are only in convenient shopping centre locations Bondi Junction, Macquarie Centre, Sydney, Miranda, Chatswood, Green Hills (East Maitland) and Warringah Mall. Call (02) 8383 1400 to make an appointment/ discuss if you can be suitable for a Complete Dental Solution at Abc Dental.

Crown Pricing - What should I be expecting?
Dental fees vary between clinics. This is the same for crowns. Fees are dependent on a range of factors. From our own research, Sydney metro prices range between $1100 - $2200.When thinking about the price of a crown, its helpful to remember that a crown on average, is expected to last many years. Clinical studies show that the average life service of a crown is observed to be around 10 years. It is more helpful to express the fee for a crown in terms of the cost per year, rather than a lump sum. In this regard, ABC crowns would be on average $110/year (same week crowns), or $175/ year (same day crowns).Another factor in price consideration is health fund coverage. For those that have private health insurance with major dental cover, a portion of the fee will be paid by your health fund. Typically, most health funds have enough major dental coverage for 1 crown per year. The price displayed above does not include health fund coverage. For example, if the health fund covers $800, and you opted for Same Week Crowns ($1100), then what you would pay is $300 for the crown treatment. This is also known as the gap payment.
We also accept afterpay, zipmoney and supercare payments.For more information click: https://www.abc-dental.com.au/when-do-i-need-a-crown 


Usually, you will need a consult first to determine whether you need a crown. Consults are available for you at all of our practices in Westfield Bondi Junction, Westfield Sydney, Westfield Miranda, Macquarie Centre Westfield Warringah, Stockland Green Hills  and Westfield Chatswood. We are open 7 days, and offer complimentary parking on site. Call us on (02) 8383 1400 for more information or to book an appointment.

It’s State of Origin Finals. Get Your Own Game Time Ready!

38 years of history has led to this year’s showdown, and with ABC Dental’s Black Panther mouthguards, your kids can play like the pros!

YOU KNOW AND LOVE STATE OF ORIGINAL FINALS – NOW, IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR KIDS GAME-TIME READY

State of Origin finals is on. With game three quickly approaching on 10 July, the showdown between NSW and Queensland is fiercer than ever. And if your kids want to play like the pros, it’s important they have quality gear that’s up to the task. 

With “black panther” mouthguards from ABC Dental, your kids will be suited up just like their favourite players (no matter which side you’re rooting for). 

Protecting Your Child’s Teeth is Priority #1, but Having Them Feel Like Their Favourite Players is a Close #2

Your kids probably don’t have the same priorities as you when it comes to rugby. They want to get in the game, and often at a very young age! No doubt they can and should play, but they need the right mouthguard to protect their developing teeth.

That’s where ABC Dental comes in. We make it fun for kids to get fitted for a mouthguard by offering a limited edition “black panther” guard that they’ll want to wear, just like the NRL stars.

WHY THE RIGHT MOUTHGUARD MATTERS

You already know that a mouthguard matters. Rugby is a physically-demanding sport, and player safety (especially when it’s your kids we’re talking about), is important. This is especially true while your children’s teeth are still developing. After all, we’d prefer that they lose their baby teeth due to natural causes and not on the rugby field. Plus:

·     Over 60% of rugby players experience some sort of orofacial trauma or injury while they’re playing; BUT

·     Using a mouthguard can reduce the risk of these injuries by up to 90%!

At ABC Dental, we’re offering limited-edition Black Panther mouthguards to keep your little ones protected while giving them a mouthguard they’ll actually want to wear.

We are conveniently located in Westfield Bondi Junction, Westfield Sydney, Westfield Miranda, Macquarie Centre and Westfield Chatswood. We are open 7 days, and offer complimentary parking on site. Take advantage of our Black Panther mouthguard, available for a limited time only and starting at $195. Call us on 8383 1400 or book online. 

Clear Aligners at Abc Dental

Everyone wants a straight smile. However, no one wants the cost, discomfort, or “metal mouth” appearance associated with traditional teeth straightening. Now, you don’t have to deal with any of these common problems.
 
Instead, you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing that you are.

WHAT ARE CLEAR ALIGNERS?

Invisible or clear, aligners look like retainers and allow you to straighten your teeth without wires. Like the aligners themselves, the advantages of this approach are clear:

  • Removable – Take your trays out while you eat or at your convenience.

  • Invisible – Invisible aligners are clear and only you’ll know you’re straightening your smile!

  • No Impression Materials – We can create clear aligners with a digital scan, meaning there are no impressions required. 

Take Your Confidence and Self-Esteem to a New Level - Invisible Aligners from $5000

If you’ve put off straightening your smile, you’ve likely done so because you can’t afford braces or don’t want to spend years of your life with metal braces, especially as an adult. At ABC Dental, you don’t have to deal with either of these issues.
 
Your clear brace services begin with a no-obligation discussion, including a free scan and treatment setup. Invisible Aligners start from $5000 and, should you decide to proceed with treatment, we offer interest-free payment plans to make your smile even more affordable. 

YOUR STRAIGHT SMILE IS INTEREST-FREE, DIGITAL, AND CONVENIENT

If you’ve ever hesitated about orthodontics, it’s likely because you thought there was only one option. However, you don’t have to deal with metal braces to feel as confident as you should. Once you have your impressions you will receive a video of how your treatment will look like at thee and smile summary of how many aligners you need. 
 
Contact ABC Dental today for your free consultation and to discuss clear aligners with our friendly staff on 02 8383 1400. We look forward to speaking with you and transforming the way you view orthodontics. Free consultation available at our Westfield Bondi Junction, Westfield Sydney, Westfield Miranda, Macquarie Centre Westfield Warringah, Stockland Green Hills and Westfield Chatswood. We are open 7 days, and offer complimentary parking on site.

 

Set The Right Implant Expectations

What to Expect at Your ABC Dental Implant Consult (and After)

 

If you’re missing teeth – even if you haven’t been to the dentist yet – dental implants have probably crossed your mind. After all, they’re a simple solution for one or more missing teeth and a permanenttreatment option. We haven’t even mentioned the benefits, either:

 

·     Improved appearance – Dental implants prevent bone deterioration and rejuvenate facial appearance.

·     Renewed confidence –Dental implants look and feel like real teeth: that’s something to smile about!

·     No harm to surrounding, natural teeth –Bridges and dentures can damage surrounding teeth by cutting them down or grinding them. Luckily, dental implants don’t have the same consequences.

·     Improve oral health –Dental implants are free from toxic adhesives and metal, which is sometimes used to hold certain oral treatments in place.

·     Easy care –Take care of dental implants like you do your natural teeth: no extra steps required!

 

Some patients believe dental implants are a one and done treatment. While this would be great, it isn’t accurate. There are a few steps to the process, all of which we explain below.

 

A Three-Step Approach to Dental Implants

 

ABC Dental’s approach to dental implants comes in three basic steps: (1) the consultation; (2) surgical planning; and (3) implantation and placement.

 

The initial consult appointment is the first step. It’s when we get all of the information that we need for your dental implant. We’ll take a CBCT – a fancy x-ray – and a digital impression. Both work with our guided dental implant process that ensures no operator variability and a shorter recovery time with less post-operative discomfort.

 

Once we’ve got the scans, the dental lab begins the second step and puts together an implant plan. The implant plan is just where the lab predicts the implant screw should be placed. Then, the lab mills a surgical guide according to that implant plan. Your dentist will meet with you again once this process is complete to agree to the plan before beginning treatment.

 

Then all that’s left is the third step: implantation and placement. When you come on for implantation, it’s for just the screw, not the actual tooth. We’ll place a healing cap on the screw. Then, after about three months of healing, your final implant crown – a.k.a. your tooth – is placed on the screw. That’s something to smile about!

Stress is a part of everyone's life...

Your head hits the pillow, and your stress disappears. Well, at least until you wake up the next day.

The ABC Dental Difference

You might think that night guards are night guards. However, this isn't true! ABC Dental splints are:

  • More comfortable; and

  • Made with a milled fabrication method, meaning they're stronger and last longer, too!

    If you're grinding, a splint will keep you smiling!

CEREC Crowns

 

Step 1: Digital Impression


In the chair for about 30-60 mins to scan the mouth for a digital impression. Previously before this technology came about, we were taking gewy impressions that often made you uncomfortable.
Now, this has all changed, we take digital impressions that accurately take scans that allows the dentist to create a new crown on a computer where the design is then created in a machine.

Step 2: Design of the Filling/Crown


While you take a break and do some last minute shopping for mum, dad. Kids, husband, wife or even for yourself. The dentist creates a design of a filling to suit your teeth on a computer. Once the design is completed on the computer it is sent to the machine to create to filling/crown

Step 3: Creation of the Filling/Crown


The machine, takes about 1 hour – 1.5hours to create and furnace the filling/crown that needs to replace your tooth. In this time, the dentist checks that the crown is made to suit you and check that the design is polished so that it can sit comfortably in your mouth with no rough edges.

Step 4: Insert


In less than 4 hours, we can get you back in the chair and insert the filling/crown. Check that the fit is comfortable. And the best part of this treatment is that there is No Needles. No Gewy Impressions, No Waiting Another Week for the Insert. Just convenient one day treatment. 

Step 5: Post Treatment


Part One: Care Taking
Now that the filling and crown is inserted just like any other dental procedure it is important to make sure that it is taken care of at home. Floss in between to make sure there aren’t any food, (not just the crown but ALL teeth) be careful when you chew hard lollies.
Part Two: Follow Up Appointments
It is just as important that you come in for dental follow ups to make sure dentists can track and see if any bacteria or minute cracks or fractures have happened. 6 monthly cleans, come get it at Abc Dental call us on (02) 8383 1400.

The latest in dental implant technology - guided implants

Dental Implants can be a solution for one or more missing teeth an are a permanent treatment option

 

Why choose dental implants?

1. Improved appearance

Loss of teeth can affect a person's facial appearance. One of the best thing about dental implants is that they are designed to integrate with the body. This means they prevent bone deterioration and rejuvenate a persons facial appearance. 

2. Renewed confidence

They help the confidence lost with missing teeth. Since dental implants look and feel as natural as real teeth, people can stop being conscious about their appearance and smile without any hesitation. 

3. No harm to natural teeth

Another amazing thing about dental implants is that unlike bridges and dentures, there's no cutting down or grinding the perfectly healthy neighboring teeth. There's no compromising on the long-term health of the real teeth. 

4. Improved oral health

Since natural teeth are not affected by the dental implant treatment, the overall long-term oral health is improved. Also, as there are no toxic adhesive or metal used to hold them in place, there is no risk of effects or allergies

5. Easy after care

Getting dental implants is convenience at its best. They not only look and feel natural, their functionalities and care are pretty much the same. Unlike dentures, there's no extra care required like removing and cleaning them separately.

This solution allows a dental implant to be planned virtually, then accurately placed in the most safe predictable and efficient manner.

  • Cut up Gums to insert implant
  • Low predictability / consistency
  • Operator variability 
  • Post-operative discomfort

  • Significant planning before implant appointment
  • Key hole surgery
  • Increased precision / accuracy with surgical guides
  • No operator variability
  • Shorter recover time / little to no post-operative discomfort

Having wisdom teeth pain?

Wisdom teeth make their first appearance between the ages of 16 and 25 and after that, they’re nothing but trouble.

If they emerge impacted or angled, they cause painswellinggum infections, or even decay on surrounding teeth. But because wisdom teeth removal procedures can force you through weeks of recovery, many busy professionals (or even those who fear anaesthesia) will put off the procedure, treating the symptoms with antibiotics and painkillers without addressing the real issue: The wisdom teeth.

Keep your natural teeth with Root Canal Therapy

What is Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy (or endodontics) is required when an injury or large cavity damages the tooth's root. The root becomes infected or inflamed. 

You may need Root Canal Therapy if you have....

  • Intense tooth pain
  • Severe toot sensitivity
  • Traumatic injury
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • A recurring abscess on the gum line
  • A crack in a filling 

Root Canal Therapy Process

Root Canal Therapy can often be performed in one or two appointments, and involves the following steps:

  1. The tooth is numbed by your dentist. An opening is made through the crown of the tooth to the pulp chamber
  2. Dental files are used to clean the infection and unhealthy pulp out of the canals.
  3. The canals are filled with a permanent material. This help keep the canals free of infections or contamination. 
  4. The tooth then needs to be restored with a crown to protect the tooth and restore it to full function

At ABC Dental, most root canal therapy can be completed in one appointment with our latest, state of the art, rotary endodontic equipment. 

 

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

  • Saves your natural tooth

  • Less expensive long term option vs alternatives of having the tooth extracted and replaced with a dental implant or bridge
  • protects other teeth from excessive wear or stain
  • Improves appearance of your tooth
  • Efficient Chewing

What if Root Canal Therapy is not completed?

Unfinished root canal treatment can lead to further complications down the road. Importantly, the tooth that has been treated with root canal therpay should be restored with a crown to protect the tooth. You should not chew or bite on the treated tooth until it has been restored. If the tooth remains uncrowned, it can break easily, and may eventually have to be extracted altogether.
