The simplest, most-effective caries prevention tool is fluoride varnish. You routinely apply it on kids. Why wouldn't you want to extend that same great preventive care to your adult patients, where caries is on the rise?

Other preventative tools include recommended oral self-care such as brushing more than once a day, use of fluoridated toothpaste, and eating sugary snacks between main meals less than once a day as well as oral health aids such as dental floss, mouth rinses, other tooth cleansing agents.


CHILDREN RECEIVE GREAT PREVENTATIVE CARE

Caries is decreasing for Children

Good preventive care plus fluoride varnish has resulted in a decreasing rate of untreated caries in kids.

10.9% of children 6-14 have untreated tooth decay

ADULTS NEED MORE PREVENTATIVE CARE

Caries is increasing in adults, yet not enough adults get fluoride varnish

Nearly a third of all Australian adults have untreated caries. The number of adults who could benefit from preventative care treatment is staggering! Let's combat caries for ALL!

32.1% of adults 15+ have untreated tooth decay

PRACTICE HEALTH

For every office, the primary goal is to deliver outstanding health care. It is also necessary that treatment modalities are profitable to adequately support the delivery of great health care. Busy dental practices that recommend fluoride treatments to all of their moderate- to high-risk patients enable both great patient health and great practice health. Fee levels for preventative care that virtually every adult will accept can add hundreds of dollars a day in incremental practice profits. In one year, that can mean a five-figure increase to current revenue.
