Preventive Services

Anything that is created by Nature is far more valuable.

Even though technology allows us to replicate teeth structures with remarkable likeliness to your natural teeth, we firmly believe in Prevention being Better than Cure.

We offer periodic reminders for check ups and cleaning of your teeth, prioritizing the appointments for registered members on a regular basis.

It is our experience that problems if detected in a timely manner can usually be salvaged through simple treatment and care, avoiding the need for any major dental treatment.

We offer family packages ,Corporate packages and Institutional packages .For enquiries send us a mail at contact@mouthmatters.org

Fluoride


Dental decay is one of the most common conditions detected all over the world. One way to help prevent cavities from occurring is through the use of fluoride.

Fluoride helps harden the tooth enamel and makes it more resistant to tooth decay. A small cavity can be stopped and even reversed by the remineralization process enhanced by fluoride.

Even though the benefits of fluoride are maximized before the teeth erupt (come in), fluoride is still very beneficial for children and adults after the teeth are fully erupted. Topical fluorides are applied directly to the tooth structure to delay or slow down the tooth decay process.

    In Children:

Professional fluoride application is a gel that is applied for 1 to 4 minutes, usually in a tray.

In Adults topical fluoride is used in:
  • High incidence of root cavities/ rampant cavities
  • Dry mouth.
  • And In those wearing braces or orthodontic appliances.

Sealants


Sealants are thin coatings applied in the dental clinic on the chewing surfaces of back teeth, which are prime spots for cavities. Sealants act as a barrier to prevent bacteria and food from collecting and sitting on the grooves and pits of teeth.

Sealants are best suited for permanent first molars which erupt around the age of 6 and second molars that erupt around the age of 12. It is important to have the sealant applied as soon as the tooth has fully come in. They are also indicated on the pre-molars if there are deep pits and fissures present.
