Avoiding costly dental problems

September 2, 2019

The three most common reasons dental visits are avoided are cost, time poor and fear. All of these reasons can be beneficially targeted by visiting the dentist for routine dental visits. Preventive dentistry aims to stop any issues with your teeth becoming catastrophic. Problems with your teeth never correct themselves. The longer you leave a problem the more significant and costly the treatment that is required becomes. Many health funds cover portions if not all of preventative dental treatment, why not use your entitlements to maintain your oral health.


We know life can get busy and visiting the dentist may not be high on the priority list. However, it is important to keep on top of your appointments. Attending regularly will not only minimise the chance of any time inconvenience an unexpected dental problem may impose but it will keep costs lower. 


Alternatively, if it is because of a fear you have been avoiding the dentist, our dentists are experienced in treating anxious or phobic patients. They are sensitive to each individual’s needs and will do their best to ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed. We understand it can be a daunting experience if you have a fear, however it is most ideal to see a dentist for a check-up before you require invasive treatment or experience a toothache.
