General Dentistry West Perth, WA
At Western Prosthodontic Centre, providing comprehensive dentistry to the families in our community is at the core of our philosophy. General dentistry encompasses the scope of dental services that most people require to maintain a healthy and comfortable smile and eat a nutritious diet that promotes overall health and wellness.
To avoid disease and tooth loss, we customise each preventive plan based on patient needs as they change through different phases of life, adjusting the recommended treatment when needed.
Preventive dentistry includes:
- Dental examinations
- Professional cleanings
- Diagnostic x-rays
- Night guards
- Sport mouth guards
- Fluoride applications
- Dental sealants
By making a commitment to invest in prevention, patients often avoid more serious conditions and complex treatment procedures in the future.
Restoring the health of damaged or diseased teeth is typically preferable to removing the tooth. Tooth loss leads to a host of other oral conditions, including a misaligned bite, bone loss and continued tooth loss.
At WPC, Dr Matthew Kinsella provides tooth-coloured restorations to repair and stabilise teeth:
- Dental crowns
- Inlays and onlays
By opting for tooth-coloured restorations, you can enjoy the benefits of dentistry without metal components that affect the aesthetics of your smile. We have an on-site ceramics dental lab for the highest quality restorations and durability.
In the case of an infection, root canal treatment makes it possible to relieve symptoms and retain the natural tooth.
Unfortunately, many patients face the challenge of tooth loss or need an extraction at some point during their lives. Choosing the appropriate way to replace a missing tooth can protect your bite or even prevent bone loss.
- Dental implants
- Dental bridges
- Partial dentures
- Full dentures
- Implant-supported bridges
- Implant-retained dentures
Dental implants are often the first choice for health-conscious patients who wish to avoid bone loss. By combining dental implants with a fixed bridge or denture options, you enjoy the health benefits of implants with other economic treatments.
In some cases, patients require comprehensive treatment to ensure a comfortable bite and the full function of the jaw system. Our prosthodontist, Dr Bradley Shepherd, has extensive training in this type of full mouth dentistry.
Periodontal (Gum) Treatments
Gum disease is quite common although it is highly preventable. Most often caused by inadequate home or professional care, periodontal disease is an inflammatory disease that puts nearly every system in the body at risk. Studies have linked periodontal disease to a number of serious health conditions, including:
- Heart disease
- Respiratory illnesses
- Certain types of cancer
- Premature birth
- Alzheimer’s disease
Our hygienists provide a gentle and thorough professional clean and polish, customised to address the individual needs of each patient. Combined with good home care and regular follow up, maintenance cleanings can reduce risk, improve bad breath and promote healing.
