Tell us your dental story

Tell us your dental story

Posted on Apr 30, 2015

Today is Tell a Story Day and while this is more popular in the U.S. than anywhere else in the world, we thought we’d adapt this day for our own purposes.

Tell a Story Day celebrates storytelling of all kinds and at NovaDental, we’re interested in learning about your dental story.


We’re all about preventative dental treatment because 99 per cent of what happens to your teeth is preventative.

Our dentists see a lot of people who have been visiting the dentist throughout their lives. When these people are eventually told they’re in need of more extensive (and costly) treatment, they tend to scratch their heads and wonder why they’ve been paying to see the dentist their whole life.

What people don’t realise is that a lot of dentists out there don’t take a preventative approach. Instead, they’re reactive dentists which means they won’t advise patients to get treatment until it’s absolutely necessary.

The why behind their reasoning is simple: Typically, people don’t like to consider treatment for their teeth until they absolutely need it.

Here’s another way to look at it all: If you knew you were going to keep the same car for an entire lifetime, what would you do to try and ensure its longevity?

Chances are, you’d make sure it’s regularly serviced and that any small issues are nipped in the bud along the way. After all, the last thing you want is for your car to break down or reach a point where you need to spend a lot of money repairing it.

Here’s our question to you: If you’re willing to go to such lengths to maintain your car, why wouldn’t you do the same for your teeth and overall wellbeing?

Fact: With proper care and maintenance, your teeth can and will last you a lifetime.

For some reason, we’ve all been taught to think that measures such as dentures and implants are inevitable as we age. This simply isn’t true.
