Fissure Sealants

Are you worried about your child’s oral health?

If a child’s adult molar teeth have deep grooves or ‘fissures’, then we recommend using a dental sealant. These sealants protect teeth from decay as it fills fissures and closes the grooves to prevent food debris from becoming stuck inside.

If your child does have dental sealants it is important to visit us regularly to ensure they remain intact.

Mouth Guards

Mouth guards can prevent further dental trauma and prolonged injury to the neck, jaw and cranium. These preventative measures can also help to –

  • Cushion teeth against impact
  • Protect against soft tissue injury
  • Protect the jaw joints from injuries
  • Help to reduce concussion related symptoms

Nightguards

Bruxism is the condition where the patient clenches or grinds their teeth.

It is a common habit, especially at night; in fact, sometimes patients are not even aware they do it. This condition can be very detrimental, as it can erode your enamel away, cause the teeth to become brittle – and also cause your teeth to shrink.

Custom nightguards cushion your teeth to protect them from the grinding pressure and also prevents your bruxism from progressing to Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).

Oral Health Routine

Our compassionate and professional team of dentists are ready to help. We examine your teeth, gums and jaw for any signs of ill health and recommend the best possible treatments.

Remember, anything we achieve in the dental chair means nothing if you do not look after your smile at home. You can do this by:

  • Brushing twice a day (morning and night)
  • Flossing before sleep
  • Visiting us every six months for a check-up

Following this oral health routine helps prevent most oral health issues from occurring.

At Dentists of Dandenong, all we want is to see you smile! Visit us for oral health maintenance, assessments, and advice on your hygiene routines.
