Tooth Grinding / TMJ Treatment

People who regularly grind their teeth at night can sometimes develop a serious problem with their jaw, which left untreated, can adversely affect the teeth, gums and bone structures of the mouth.

One of the most common jaw disorders is related to a problem with the temporomandibular joint, the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull, and allows your upper and lower jaw to open and close and facilitates chewing and speaking.  People with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) often have a clicking or popping sound when opening and closing their mouths. Such disorders are often accompanied by frequent headaches, neck aches, and in some cases, tooth sensitivity.

Some treatments for TMD include holistic stress reduction, muscle relaxants, aspirin, biofeedback, or wearing a small rubber bite guard appliance in the mouth during sleep for a period of time.
Minor cases of TMD involve discomfort or pain in the jaw muscles. More serious conditions involve improperly aligned joints or dislocated jaws. The most extreme form of TMD involves an arthritic condition of the jaw joint. Traumatic injuries also can cause jaw dislocation.  In the more extreme cases a night ‘bite guard’ appliance may be advised for extended periods.

Reconstruction of excess wear and chipping of enamel:

What can help reduce stress and boost self-confidence better than a radiant smile, exuding positivity?
Full mouth restoration is in fact a combination of various separate procedures like composite dental bonding, veneers or crowning, teeth whitening, etc. to recreate the perfect set of teeth. The combined effect will reduce any tension in the jaw and neck and make a more comfortable bite.  If you are looking for a total dental makeover, full mouth restoration is your one stop solution.

The process may require models to be taken, which are sent for lab reconstruction of the worn teeth to the ideal bite and shape. this can be reproduced in the mouth before ordering the final ceramic work required when comfortable with the shape and appearance.

Can’t recommend Dr Ellie and her friendly team enough. I usually get very anxious at dental appointments but Dr Ellie and her team made it very smooth and easy for me. She talked me through the procedure and explained every option in details. She was thorough and gentle.

Dr Ash and his friendly and relaxed team were very accommodating. They fit me in an emergency slot first thing in the morning and fixed my toothache immediately and I was able to go into work that day.. very happy with their service and price too.

I went to see my regular dentist and was referred to a specialist surgeon for removing my wisdom teeth. I was told I needed to be asleep for the procedure at a private hospital but I couldn’t afford that. My friend recommended to try Surry Hills Dental as they have a good reputation for removing wisdom teeth. I was made an appointment to see Dr. Ash. I had a consultation with their team over the phone regarding the procedure and risks and on my first visit to their lovely cozy practice I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed! I got this done in the chair with the happy gas in less than an hour for about a quarter of the price I was quoted by the specialist and hospital… I’m so grateful I found this practice and will be seeing Dr. Ash for further check ups and treatment

My experience couldn’t have been better! Dr.Wu removed all 4 wisdom teeth (not easy cases either) and made it such a relaxing, safe and quick procedure. I was quite nervous going into the appointment but immediately started to feel calm and relaxed - thank you to the friendly, personable and accommodating staff. It was an excellent environment and I weirdly I had the best time from start to finish. What was even better was my recovery. I experienced only one day of soreness and after that I healed in less than a week. I seriously couldn’t rate my experience higher.
