Regular check ups and cleaning ensure your mouth is operating and looking at its best. Fissure sealants provide protection from tooth decay in our childrens' back teeth. It involves your dentist placing a plastic coating over the grooves of your child's teeth which is quick and painless. Professional fluoride applications help strengthen the enamel and provide added resistance to tooth decay. Education by way of tooth brushing and flossing instruction ensure you are cleaning your teeth optimally, as well as dietary counselling ensure bacteria don't gain access to too much unrefined sugar going on to produce cavities which no-one wants. Custom fitted mouth-guards provide vital protection for your teeth and adjacent soft tissues for use in various sports and activities.
So you have a cavity, RELAX, the team at Spring Dental are here to help and will guide you through the options available to restore your tooth back to its former self in no time. If the cavity is small a simple filling may suffice, however if more of the tooth is affected then inlays, onlays or crowns may be used to cover and protect your tooth. These can now be made in one visit using digital dentistry and the Cerec machine.
At Spring Dental our most important patients are the kids. We strive to ensure that each child retains a happy and healthy mouth for life so dental visits are encouraged from as young as possible. We recommend bringing your children along with you for your own dental check ups so that they are able to experience non-confrontational dentistry from a young age in a safe and fun environment.
