Preventative Dentistry

Protection | Examination | Oral Hygiene

Emergency dentistry is expensive and often uncomfortable. Why not take an easier, more comfortable and economical approach and undertake a program of preventive dentistry.

CLDC help create an environment in your
mouth that is conducive to oral health.

At CLDC our approach to prevention involves obtaining a detailed general and dental health history, including lifestyle, diet and stress factors etc. specifically geared to help determine your personal risk of developing tooth decay. We no longer have to accept as inevitable, the consequences of dental decay. We can be proactive and reduce caries development.
Risk factors can be classified in various ways, such as physical, socioeconomic, behavioural, and treatment related.

Physical:
  • Variations in tooth enamel; deep pits and fissures
  • Anatomically susceptible areas
  • Gastric reflux
  • Special health needs
  • Previous caries experience
Behavioural:
  • Frequent snacking
  • Inadequate oral hygiene
  • Eating disorders, including bulimia or anorexia
  • Occupational Eg. wine tasters
  • Smoking
Socio-Environmental:
  • Inadequate fluoride
  • Poor family oral health
  • No access to health care or education
Disease or Treatment Related:
  • Radiotherapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Various Illness’s eg diabetes
  • Orthodontic appliances

This detailed assessment will suggest the type and frequency of treatment needed, not only to address disease, but also to monitor progress towards the continued elimination of risk factors and achievement of wellness.
