Just like your car, your teeth need maintenance and servicing to keep them at their best.
Preventative dentistry functions as your teeth’s needed servicing. Under this branch of dentistry, your teeth are subject to tests and care, which aim to detect and stop oral diseases.
We at Caringbah Dental Care believe in the importance of preventative dentistry and the big role it plays in making sure that you have bright and healthy smiles for a lifetime. Below are our preventative dentistry services.
Dental check up
Routine check ups should be scheduled twice a year, once every six months. Each check up, your dentist will check the status of your oral health and recommend dental treatments based on the result.
Good oral hygiene habits go a long way towards making sure that your teeth stay in their best shape. Hence you should be fully educated on the best practices to maintain good oral hygiene.
At Caringbah Dental Care our goal is to ensure that our patients are given quality dental treatments and are fully educated on good oral hygiene habits.
Your chances of having a dazzling smile and optimal oral health are greater if you start caring for your teeth early in life. Therefore children should be exposed to oral health awareness early on.
At Caringbah Dental Care, we provide quality dental services for all ages, in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
Child dental benefits schedule
Educating your child can be very difficult. Choosing the right dentist is a challenging task. Then come the additional expenses that can put a dent in your budget.
At Caringbah Dental Care, we can help! You don’t have to choose between sticking to your budget and your child’s oral health. With the Child Dental Benefits Schedule, your Caringbah Dental Care dentist can give you both!
Dental scale and clean
Cleaning your mouth requires more than just brushing and flossing. There are areas in your mouth that are not properly cleaned during brushing.
Only your dentist can properly clean and remove all the plaque in your mouth. At Caringbah Dental Care, we make sure that your mouth is risk-free through our comprehensive dental procedures including the dental scale and clean.
Air abrasion filling
Air abrasion is the removal of decay on the tooth enamel without drilling. It is a non-invasive treatment that makes use of a hand piece that works like a mini sandblaster “spraying” away the decayed parts.
The hand piece blows a blast of air containing tiny aluminium oxide particles out of its tips onto the tooth to remove the decay. The removed decayed parts are then suctioned away by a thin tube.
Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings, usually made of plastic. They cover the molars so bacteria can’t develop.
Dental sealants are best applied when the molars first erupt. By sealing them, your teeth are protected from possible decay. Sealants can also be applied to teeth showing early signs of decay.
Mouthguards and splints
Mouthguards are protective dental equipment worn in the mouth during sports activities. They shield your teeth and cushion blows to the face and teeth, preventing possible breakage and other damage to your teeth and soft tissues.
Night splints or night guards have similar functions to those of mouth guards, but they are worn at night during sleep. They protect your teeth from excessive grinding which happens as a result of bruxism.
