Providing preventative dentistry at every stage of your dental journey
When it comes to preventative dentistry, the team at Dapto Family Dental is here for all your family’s dental needs. Did you know that daily brushing and flossing at home should be complemented with regular visits to your dentist for a professional clean? This is a vital part of an overall preventative maintenance program that will keep your oral health in good shape and identify any issues before they become more significant – and often vastly more expensive problems.
How is our preventative dentistry different?
Understanding that some patients feel anxious or concerned about visiting the dentist, we’ve taken important steps to implement measures that not only reduce these fears, but also make the experience a more enjoyable one. Among these is AIRFLOW, a predictable, pain free technology that removes biofilm, stains, and early stage calculus from natural teeth, restorations, and implants.
Preventative dentistry and kids
There is no better way to help kids enjoy the dentist by starting early with regular hygiene visits. We support parents and carers who are teaching their children healthy oral hygiene habits, such as good brushing techniques, daily flossing, and feeling confident to receive a professional clean at that dentist. This sets children and teens up for a lifetime of good oral health and helps them understand that with good habits, it is easy to keep the nasties like decay and gum disease at bay.
Parents should also keep in mind the Australian Government’s Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) which covers eligible families for a percentage of annual dental costs. Talk to us about whether you can access this when you book your appointment.
