One of our most important goals at McCrae Dental Bendigo is to help our patients keep their teeth for life. The easiest way to reduce the risk of decay, serious infections or disease is with a good preventive dentistry system.
Our motto at McCrae Bendigo Dental is “Prevention is better than a Cure.” At your regular dental visit we focus on oral hygiene care that includes scaling and cleaning, preventive dental X-rays and fluoride application. We encourage fissure sealants for all young growing patients and also mature adults. Dental sealants are applied usually to premolar and posterior molar teeth. They seal the deep grooves generally on the biting surface which then prevents the decay of teeth. We also encourage custom made mouthguards for the children playing sports.
It is recommended by Australian dental council to have six monthly check ups and gum cleaning for adequate dental health. Preventive dentistry aims to avoid more complex treatment by providing the appropriate maintenance and oral hygiene. Our experts will assist you in developing a personalised program to maximise these efforts and avoid future complex and costly treatment.
