Dental tips newsletter, June 2015

Survey, the news from Today’s Dentistry, dental volunteering and fissure sealants…
In this issue of our Dental Tips newsletter:

We receive a lot of questions from parents who suspect their children have decay, asking what it means, what they need to do and how they can prevent other teeth, or their other children, from getting any further decay.

Fissure sealants and deep grooves

One common site for decay in children is in the deep grooves in their back teeth. There’s a lot of anatomical variation in the:

  • Anatomy of these grooves
  • Fineness of the grooves
  • Depth of each groove
  • Imperfections in the way the enamel forms in these grooves. Together these factors can make it impossible for these teeth to be cleaned properly – if nothing is done these teeth will end up with cavities, regardless of how well they are cleaned and cared for.

Fissure sealants are a great preventative measure to ensure highly susceptible teeth are less likely to suffer from decay…

Orthodontics

Orthodontics is an area of dentistry that treats irregularities of teeth and the effect this has on one’s face and bite.

Our Orthodontic treatments include:

  • Braces
  • Invisalign, a type of invisible brace
  • Removable functional appliances such as expanders, retainers and other devices that are sometimes necessary
