Here at SV Dental Centre Melbourne, we want you to be able to enjoy all the benefits associated with good dental health. We want you to feel confident when you smile and to be able to eat without pain or discomfort. Preventative dentistry is the most effective way to maintain good oral health at all times. We focus extensively on preventative dental care and offer a comprehensive range of treatments to protect and maintain healthy teeth and gums. Oral hygiene education is a very important part of preventative dentistry and our friendly dental team can help you gain maximum benefit from your daily regime at home. Our treatments include:
When you visit us for regular examinations we can assess your risk of oral health problems to determine if you will benefit from additional dental care treatments. If we feel this might be the case then we will chat to you about any possible treatment options and will encourage you to ask all the questions you need before you make any decisions.
If you are already a regular patient at our practice then you’ll know we encourage you to take all the time you need before you decide on any treatment plan. We will never push you towards a particular choice, but prefer instead to provide you with all the information you need to help you decide.
Oral hygiene appointments are an effective preventative dental treatment and this particular procedure is very gentle and non-invasive. We use the very latest ultrasonic scalars combined with water jets to comfortably remove any tartar build-up, leaving your teeth beautifully clean.Explore More!
Fissure sealants consist of a thin protective layer of a special and very hard-wearing plastic material that is painted over the chewing surfaces of back teeth. These surfaces are particularly vulnerable towards decay due to the nature of their design. If you look at these teeth you will see they have lots of very deep fissures that can easily trap food and bacteria. SV Dental Centre prefers to seal these surfaces whenever we can and is why we may suggest this treatment for you.Explore More!
SV Dental Centre recommends the use of custom-fitted mouth guards for adults who love to play contact and some non-contact sports. Every year there are thousands of dental related injuries as a result of playing sports and many of these could have been avoided or minimised with the use of a good quality mouth guard.Explore More!
Advanced gum disease or periodontal disease is relatively common and can become chronic, requiring ongoing treatment to keep it under control. This might mean more frequent oral hygiene appointments or we may recommend you have your gums regularly deep cleaned in a treatment called scaling and root planing.Explore More!
Your diet can have a big impact on your dental health, even if you brush and floss regularly. Your body needs sufficient nutrients in order to fight infection and to repair tissues, including gum tissue. Making sure you have a balanced diet will benefit your general health and your dental health. Your teeth can also be affected by how frequently you eat certain foods.Explore More!
Ideally we’d like to see you every six months for a regular examination and we encourage you to attend these appointments even if you think your teeth are fine. Often the initial signs of dental problems will create few, if any symptoms but early detection can help minimise the damage to your teeth and gums and any treatment is likely to be quicker and less invasive.Explore More!
