Here at Sunshine Coast Paediatric Dentistry, we are especially aware of the problems associated with chalky teeth and stop at nothing to ensure best levels of care. We respect that special considerations need to be made not just for the dental treatments we apply, but also for the way we interact with our affected people and their families. As Paediatric Dentists, we provide specialist advice and management to help your child or dependent avoid unscheduled visits for chalky tooth maintenance. We understand that chalky teeth often incur higher costs and so encourage discussion about financial solutions that work well for you.
To keep up with the latest information, we belong to The D3 Group whose mission is ‘Better understanding and care of people with chalky teeth’. This Australasian network brings together interested dental professionals, doctors, scientists and healthcare companies to share knowledge, discuss research needs, and formulate best standards of care and education. The D3 Group has a special interest in chalky molars (‘Molar Hypomin’), a disturbingly common problem that affects about 1-in-6 schoolchildren worldwide. And in case you’re wondering, ‘D3‘ is just another way of saying Developmental Dental Defects (DDD), which is the technical term for chalky teeth.
To assist your learning about chalky teeth, our Practice makes available the full range of educational resources produced by The D3 Group. These include some really cool stickers and an easy to understand storybook made especially for children with Molar Hypomin. For those of you wanting to learn more about Molar Hypomin and other types of chalky teeth, we recommend you visit the Chalky Teeth Campaign website.
