Dental Fitness

The training in this area closely followed by the protective concept, including the recommendation on nutrition and equipment selection to promote dental and general health. Dental fitness should be seen as a lifestyle.

Drama
Maternal-child oral-dental health awareness program: In our clinic, instead of classical education methods, children are encouraged to play games and thinking through 'CREATIVE DRAMA'. Both adults and children receive oral health education by active learning methods.
Our purpose in this program is:
  • Prevention of plaque control and toothbrushing
  • Interface cleaning (dental flossing) for good oral hygiene
  • To emphasize the importance of using fluoride.
Additionally
  • Regular dental check (recall system)
  • Oral tooth accidents and prevention methods: Mouthguard are also emphasized.
Preventive Care
Pit and Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealant is a transparent or white plastic liquid based material applied to the grooves on the back teeth. It sticks to the tooth mine and prevents it from forming caries. Since it is in the form of a liquid, it is retained by flowing completely into the grooves of the tooth surface, so that it is applied without any abrasion from the tooth surface and does not form an elevation.


Mouthguards

There are three types of mouth guards:

  • Stock mouth protectors: are preformed and come ready to wear. They are inexpensive and can be bought at most sporting good stores and department stores. However, little can be done to adjust their fit, they are bulky, make breathing and talking difficult, and they provide little or no protection. Dentists do not recommend their use.
  • Boil and bite mouth protectors: also can be bought at many sporting goods stores and may offer a better fit than stock mouth protectors. The "boil and bite" mouth guard is made from thermoplastic material. It is placed in hot water to soften, then placed in the mouth and shaped around the teeth using finger and tongue pressure.
  • Custom-fitted mouth protectors: are individually designed and made in a dental office or a professional laboratory based on your dentist's instructions. First, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth and a mouth guard is then molded over the model using a special material. Due to the use of the special material and because of the extra time and work involved, this custom-made mouth guard is more expensive than the other types, but it provides the most comfort and protection.
Caries activity test:

A test to determine the salivary flow rate, saliva buffering capacity, salivary mutant streptococci and lactobacillus numbers for identification adults and children.with high-risk of caries.

Diet and Nutrition Conseling

Food preference and nutrition habits, along with many other factors, are closely related to oral health. Diet counseling in the dental practice should focus upon reducing oral risks (gum disease, diabetes, recurrent decay,xerostomia etc.), from diet and promoting good nutrition for health.
