Preventive Dentistry explained by Ballarat Dental Care dentists: preventive dentistry is a form of dental practice that prevents people from developing dental problems. As the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure.
Preventive dentistry at Ballarat Dental Care attempts to find the cause of the problem and then treat the cause, rather than treating the disease process at a later stage.
Our family dentists attempt to prevent any new dental problems in your mouth like Gum disease or tooth decay by using current technology and new techniques.
Our dentist will also examine Occlusion (bite) and treatment plans are provided to the patient for a predictable and long term prognosis by the dentists.
By finding the cause of the problem and the lifestyle, dentists can modify diets and your oral hygiene, therefore avoiding any complex dental work in the future.
Our Preventive dentistry dentists aim to use minimal intervention techniques to prevent ongoing dental diseases. The following are the preventive dentistry measures recommend to follow on during dental consultation with the dentist Ballarat.
