Preventive fissure sealants are tooth coloured resin restorations applied to biting surfaces of healthy teeth to prevent decay. Decay can form in pits (fissures) and deep groves in the teeth that are too small to clean with a toothbrush. Usually no drilling or injections are required for this simple procedure.
Early Orthodontics evaluation
An early check-up may help in diagnosing problems with the alignment of teeth which could be corrected with early intervention. We can also find if any delay in the eruption of teeth or over retention of baby teeth, is causing problems in the alignment of teeth and jaws.
Child Dental Benefits scheme
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule commenced on 1 January 2014 and provides access to benefits for general dental services for eligible children aged 2-17 years. The total benefit entitlement will be capped at $1,000 per child over two calendar years.
