Capricornia Dental Centre
Dentists - North Rockhampton, QLD
At Capricornia Dental Centre we have the capacity to offer you a lifetime of exceptional dental health, no matter what your past experiences may have led you to believe.
Our philosophy is to provide exceptional dental health for each person in our care. Restorations and extractions are important and necessary facets of dentistry however we believe we can be of most benefit to patients who understand the health advantages of preventative dentistry, and who are seeking more than the most basic level of health care.
Dentistry has changed a lot in the last decade or so. It needed to, and it needs to keep changing.
In 1975, there were 122 people in Australia who were 100 years or older. In June 2014, there were 4,000 people in Australia who were 100 years or older. This number is projected to rise to 40,000 by 2055. Each one of those 40,000 in 2055, is a minimum of 60 years old today.
Teeth need to last a lot longer than they did in the past. This means that they need to be treated differently than they were in the past. To allow you to stay well, on a whole of mouth basis, we need to be able to get to a point where the muscles of your head and neck, your jaw joints and your teeth are in harmony.
On an individual tooth basis, we need to get to the point where any restoration is simple and predictable. At this point, lifetime dental health becomes an achievable and realistic goal.
