Preventative dental care for adolescents
Tooth cavities and gum disease are the most common chronic disease affecting teenagers. Teenagers in particular consume a high amount of sugar, have poor oral hygiene, use a limited amount of fluoride toothpaste or may have unique social or psychological problems; some teens may also use tobacco, alcohol and other drugs. A many as 50% of teenagers will have teeth cavities that need addressing. Adolescence is the crucial time to make your child aware of the importance of preventative oral hygiene, and our dentists will tailor their treatment plan according to your child’s needs.
Medicare Child Dental Advantages:
This goes back to 2014 when the Australian Government brought in the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) that offers benefits for taking care of children’s dentistry ranging from 2 to 17 years. The overall benefit entitlement caps around $1,000 for every child for two calendar years.
There is a vast range of dental treatments that get covered under this scheme. They include cleaning, x-rays, fillings, examinations, fissure sealing, root canals, fillings and extractions. However, cosmetic and orthodontic treatments do not get any kind of coverage. Treatment which is provided in hospital is excluded, however IV Sedation can be used on teenagers who need to undergo lengthy treatment procedures (thereby excluding the need for going to hospital).
Clear Choice Dental offers no-gap treatments like fissure sealing, cleaning, examination, x-rays, and basic fillings for all those kids who are eligible for the CDBS Medicare scheme. There are a few more advanced procedures like advanced restoration and wisdom teeth removals that incur a gap fee.
Info for families: In case you need more information on CDBS available for families, you can access the website of Department of Human Services.
Early intervention and good preventive strategies in dentistry will definitely help your kids from getting any further dental problems.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, we encourage you to discuss these matters with an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
