Broken teeth may not cause immediate pain. However, if the break reaches the nerve, you will experience sensitivity or discomfort while chewing food. Whether you have pain or not, visiting the dentist is important to examine the condition and health of the broken tooth. After inspection, the dentist will recommend the best method to repair the broken tooth. In most cases, the dentist will recommend any one or a combination of root canal treatment, fillings, and crowns.
Gum diseases are of two types – Gingivitis and periodontal diseases. They are usually caused by poor oral hygiene. Gingivitis is caused by the build-up of plaque along the gum line and is characterised by inflamed gums. When gingivitis is not treated, it could develop into periodontal disease which can weaken the bone surrounding the teeth and lead to tooth loss. To avoid all these hassles, you must maintain good oral health.
Wisdom teeth, also called as third molars are the last four of 32 teeth to emerge in the mouth. They usually grow in your late teens or early twenties. If there is inadequate space in your mouth, it prevents wisdom teeth from erupting properly, leading to undesirable impacts. The impacted wisdom teeth can contribute to infection, damage or tumors. Here at Radiant Smiles Dental Group, we have a dedicated team of dentists who perform wisdom tooth extraction using the latest technologies, ensuring excellent results.
Types of Impaction:
There are several types of impaction and they include
- Soft tissue impaction – the upper portion of the tooth has penetrated
- Partial bony impaction – tooth has partially erupted
- Complete bony impaction – tooth completely encased by jawbone
Why Should You Get Your Wisdom Tooth Extracted?
Wisdom tooth extraction is performed when there is a pain, swelling, infection or decay as a preventative measure to avoid problems in the future. Whether one or more wisdom tooth is impacted, it leads to a number of harmful outcomes, including
- Damage to nearby teeth
- Tooth crowding
Wisdom Tooth Examination:
When you come to Radiant Smiles Dental Group, we will perform a thorough examination of the wisdom tooth to evaluate its position and determine the existing problem. The examination exposes additional risk factors such as decay or damage to the surrounding teeth. Our early examination helps us identifying potential problems and determining the best treatment options for the particular case.
We will give you a local anesthetic injection to numb the area and help you feel relaxed during the procedure. Your dedicated oral surgeon will rock the tooth back and forth and sometimes make a cut in the gum to extract the wisdom tooth. After completing the procedure, we will advise you on aftercare necessities that will prevent further injuries.
If you have any questions or concern about the wisdom tooth extraction, feel free to call us at 03 94676112.
While our teeth are meant to last a lifetime, damages may occur to a tooth, leading to cavity or infection. This infection may damage the nerves and blood vessels inside the tooth, causing severe pain and swelling. At Radiant Smiles Dental Group, we perform root canal treatment and take effective measures to prevent tooth extraction.
What Are The Symptoms Of Root Canal Infection?
If your root canal has been infected, you will not experience any pain in the beginning. When the infection spreads, the pain will become more prominent, and it can lead to an abscess that can be very painful. That is why it is important to have root canal treatment before the infection spreads.
- Pain when biting down
- Tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperature
- Discolouration of the infected tooth
- Loose tooth
If you notice any of these symptoms, you can visit Radiant Smiles Dental Group for a consultation.
What Does Root Canal Treatment Involve?
The root canal treatment involves removing the damaged pulp from the root canal system, ensuring that the infection cannot spread further. After the infection has been removed, the cavity is filled and sealed with a filling or crown. This procedure is performed under local anesthetic, so the candidate will experience a little or no pain.
Post Treatment Care:
After having the treatment, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene. You must make up the mind to give up unhealthy habits such as smoking, drinking, and intake of acidic and sugary foods. Strictly following these steps will ensure that you can prevent further damage and keep your teeth healthy.

You must have a regular dental check-up at least every 6 months to keep your teeth and gums healthy. During the routine check-up, the dentist will check for cavities, gum diseases, plaque and tartar, and also look for signs of swelling, redness and oral cancer. Your teeth will also be cleaned using special tools to remove the tartar, and you will be advised on the best ways to brush and floss.
