“Love your teeth” is the overall theme of this year’s campaign, which takes place 1st – 7th August 2022.

The key messages aim to reinforce the importance of maintaining good oral health throughout the entirety of a person’s life, which include to:

– Brush teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste;

– Clean between your teeth daily using floss or interdental brushes;

– Eat a healthy diet that is low in added sugar;

– Use your teeth only for their intended purpose; and

– Visit the dentist regularly for check-ups and preventive care.

If you haven’t had a dental check-up in a while, now is the time to schedule an appointment. Contact our friendly staff on 03 5134 1311 to make a booking.

Improving Your Smile!

Improving Your Smile!

Missing or defective teeth can not only impact the look of your smile, it can also impact on its functionality and overall health.

A dental prosthesis is a dental appliance that replaces your natural teeth, such as a missing tooth or covers up tooth defects. These dental appliances include full or partial dentures, implants, crowns, bridges and veneers, and some of them can be removable or permanently fixed in your mouth.

If you think you might benefit from a prosthesis, then Dr Caprara can explain the most effective option for your dental needs and develop for you a personalised treatment plan that will have you smiling again.

Contact us today on 03 51 341311 to schedule your appointment to learn more about your options including general dentistry and prosthodontic treatment.

Custom-fit Mouthguards

Custom-fit Mouthguards

According to the Australian Dental Association (ADA), sports related injuries account for almost 40 per cent of dental injuries, yet only 36 per cent of Australians wear a mouthguard when playing contact sport.

Most winter sports are associated with physical contact- some quite excessive. Too often we have seen a number of trauma patients who have not been wearing mouthguards while engaging in contact sport. The results can sometimes be devastating.

A customised well fitted mouthguard is an essential prerequisite for anyone involved in any contact sport. If you’re not wearing a mouthguard, or if you have an old poorly fitting one, now is the time to make an appointment to have a customised mouthguard constructed. 

Don’t wait until you suffer major dental trauma to think about prevention!

Call us today on (03) 5134 1311 to schedule an appointment for your custom-fitted mouthguard.

Dental Work in Time for Christmas

Dental Work in Time for Christmas

With the end of 2021 fast approaching there is limited time remaining for the construction of Dentures or other dental Oral Appliances before Christmas.

A number of dental laboratories have advised that they will commence closing mid-late December, and therefore they cannot guarantee completion before Christmas for any dental work not received by 10th December 2021.  That is just over 3 weeks away! 

If your desire was to have that new Denture in time for Christmas then you need to consider scheduling your dental appointment as soon as possible. These timeframes are also important for any patient who hopes to have their dental Crown, Porcelain Veneer or Splint completed prior to Christmas.

You can call our surgery on (03) 5134 1311 and speak with our friendly staff in order to schedule your pre-Christmas dental needs.
