Preventative dental care in Geelong

May 29, 2022

Embracing preventative dental care gives Geelong people the best chance possible to enjoy good oral health during their lives.

At Wyatt Ryan Dental, that’s our aim. We believe a strong partnership between patients and dentists is crucial to achieving quality outcomes. The combination of great home care – think brushing, flossing and a good diet – and regular visits to the dentist makes a huge difference.

Our expert team knows that prevention is preferable to the cure. Preventative dental care in Geelong seeks to reduce oral health issues including cavities and gum disease in people, young and old. It’s important and can save people from pain, discomfort and the cost of dental treatment to correct any related problems.

COVID-19, with its lockdowns and restrictions, has also taken a toll on our teeth over the past two years. A recent report into oral health and dental care in Australia found that in one in eight people in 2020-21 either didn’t see a dentist or put off their visit in the last 12 months because of COVID. The people surveyed were aged 15 years and over.

While restrictions, financial stress and uncertainty have had a real impact, it is imperative to get back into the routine of regular dental checks. These checks are crucial in picking up any small issues before they become costly, painful problems.

Quality oral care also plays an important role in lowering the risk of serious health problems such as strokes, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. And dentists can identify mouth cancer and other issues when they have patients in the chair.

Wyatt Ryan Dental’s experienced and friendly dentists provide quality care to people of all ages. From six-month-old babies to teens and right through to old age, all can benefit from on-going preventative dental care in Geelong.
