Preventive Dentistry is the cornerstone of Symmetry Dental. Symmetry Dental, in collaboration with Sydney University Dental, is involved in a caries and gum disease risk management program. This protocol is based on the rationale that dental disease is preventable and reversible if a program of careful monitoring and non-invasive strategies to arrest and remineralise early lesions is undertaken.
Patients who are considered to be at risk will be offered further assessment of diet, plaque distribution and predisposing conditions. Incipient lesions are treated non-invasively with fluoride varnish application, sealants and home tooth brushing programs using remineralising toothpaste.
International and Australian research conclusively demonstrates that preventive maintenance and a non-invasive approach results in less complex expensive dentistry and a predictable long- term prognosis for individual teeth.
Dentistry has changed – evidence-based scientific research, collaboration with complimentary medical disciplines and the recognition of tried and tested treatments have raised awareness of oral health and its position in the general well-being of patients. In recognition of the above, Symmetry Dental endeavours to work closely with allied health professionals and to stay abreast of the latest knowledge and treatment techniques to provide the most comprehensive and holistic approach to treatment for all patients.
