Patients of all ages can benefit from preventive dentistry. That's because from the moment we get our first tooth, we're all vulnerable to common oral health conditions like gum disease and tooth decay. Through preventive dentistry, we can provide effective protection against both.
Through our supplemental services we can give your smile extra protection. Our preventive dentistry services include:
* Fluoride Treatments
* Athletic Mouthguards
In the case of dental sealants and fluoride treatments, our goal is to increase your smile's resistance to decay. Dental sealants work by acting as a physical barrier between teeth and harmful bacteria, while fluoride supplements attract important minerals needed to keep teeth strong. We can even reverse some cases of decay through topical remineralisation, instead of resorting to fillings. Topical remineralisation not only saves time, it saves money and it saves your smile.
We monitor our Village Dental patients for signs of gum disease. Why is treating gum disease early important? It's been estimated that as many as 80% of adults have some form of it, and gum disease is the primary cause of adult tooth loss. All of these facts make early, non-surgical treatment very important.
Call Village Dental with your questions or to reserve your next appointment. We offer high-quality preventive, cosmetic, restorative and implant dentistry services to our patients from all over Canberra.
