Preventive dentistry is that dentistry which follows preventive principles.
The idea of preventing disease rather than treating it is a major preventive principle. By far the greatest achievement in preventive dentistry was the discovery that small quantities of fluoride in the drinking water helps to prevent tooth decay.
The discovery of radiographs or x-rays was another ground-breaking tool in the preventive dentistry kit.
In the new millennium, we are looking at the scientific methods of prevention of disease. In this practice, there is still a strong belief that flossing and brushing teeth, fluoride and x-rays but most of all frequent check-up examinations are the way to keeping your teeth for life.
Small lesions can be watched and pointed out early to the patient. With vigilance, the lesion may not progress.
At the Mosman Family Dental Practice we concentrate on tailoring our dentistry to your individual needs. With over 30 years experience, Dr Michelle Lehmann will give you an honest appraisal of your dental needs.
As a woman practitioner, she offers a caring, fun and comfortable atmosphere for her patients. Children as young as three and adults as old as ninety have been treated by Dr Michelle Lehmann in her practice.
We cater to keeping your teeth for the rest of your life with only the necessary intervention to achieve this. Our preventive principles are strong and we enjoy treating people over a long period of time and properly maintaining their teeth.
While crown and bridgework and occlusion [the bite] is a specialty, Dr Michelle Lehmann does her own prophylaxis or cleans with her examinations to assure that the job is done to her high standard.
Cowards Welcome :)
We cater to cowards. There is nothing better than to perform a dental procedure on a previously scared patient without trauma and then see them leave with a smile on their face.
People seeking good quality, friendly dental care with strongly conservative dental skills have found the right place here.
