Study- No-Drill Dentistry Stops Tooth Decay - melbourne dentist

Is it possible to stop tooth decay without the help of fillings? Yes. The latest study from University of Sydney states that tooth decay can be stopped and reversed with no-drill dentistry, which means there is no drilling and filling involved to halt the dental caries.

If you have dental anxiety and the sound of a dentist’s drill alone sends chills down your spine, then this new study may offer hope. The results of the seven-year study were published in Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology in December 2015, which suggests that there’s often no need for the traditional “fill-and-drill” and that dental caries can be stopped with preventative oral care.
