Minimal Intervention

Robina Dental Group practises dentistry utilising the principles of Minimum Intervention. Minimal Intervention Dentistry is a modern dental practice designed around the principal aim of preservation of as much of the natural tooth structure as possible.

Once the dental drill touches the tooth the `tooth death cycle’ commences. Nothing a dentist does lasts forever and slowly the tooth becomes more heavily filled as time goes on and fillings need replacement. Ultimately tooth loss is the result of this cycle. Performing excellent and high quality dentistry certainly slows this process as does patient education and ideal oral health behaviour.

The approach of minimal intervention dentistry is centred on management of the dental caries disease responsible for tooth decay, first by controlling and curing the disease, then restoring the tooth, filling only where necessary, and finally prevention from future decay. It is intended to be a complete management solution for tooth decay.
