CDBS

Parents are encouraged to make dental appointments for their children before the school holidays end. Some families may even be eligible to have payment for their check-up provided by the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).

Some families will be able to benefit from the Australian Government’s recent announcement to continue the CDBS which provides $1000 every two years towards children’s dental care for eligible families.

Fissure Sealants

With everyday eating food and bacteria can become stuck in the fissures (pits / groves) of your teeth, particularly in the back molars.  Children’s molar teeth are very vulnerable to decay as the pits and fissures can be deep, making it more difficult to clean. Decay can then set in and if left untreated can lead to cavities. To prevent plaque and tartar build-up and decay developing, fissure sealants are often applied.

Applying fissure sealants is a pain-free procedure, as there are no drilling or invasive processes involved. It is a purely preventive measure and only takes approximately five minutes per tooth.

Fissure sealant is applied to fill the deep grooves and after only a few minutes sets hard, creating a protective barrier between the tooth enamel and plaque. The sealant material is tooth coloured, and also contains fluoride for added tooth protection.

The best time to apply fissure sealant is immediately following the emergence of your child’s first permanent molars, at around age 6. We then advise fissure sealant also be applied to the second permanent adult premolars when they come through, which usually occurs between the ages of 11-13.
