Dental Seminar: How to keep your teeth young and healthy

The Be Well Dental department was opened in November 2022, bringing a personalized, safe and friendly environment using the latest technology to members and patients in Hua Hin. We have combined European experience with the skills of our Thai dentists to bring you the highest quality of dental care.

We are pleased to be hosting a seminar, led by dental experts, with information and explanations about how to keep your teeth young and healthy.

While the average age of people is growing, we need to realize our teeth were not “designed” for a lifetime that is that long. Careful prevention and timely treatments are required to keep teeth in functional shape until high age. The seminar will address aspects of degeneration prevention, restorative dentistry (e.g. crowns & bridges) and esthetic treatments (e.g. whitening, veneers). Special attention will be given to implants. The speakers will also cover the possibilities, risks and costs of various therapies.
