Preventive Dentistry West Perth, WA
Why treat a dental condition when you can avoid it altogether? At Western Prosthodontic Centre, we emphasise a preventive approach to oral care to help our patients enjoy healthy, comfortable smiles that last a lifetime.
The Best Insurance for Your Smile
Health funds only offer limited coverage, which is why we recommend the best insurance around – avoiding dental conditions and treating dental diseases quickly before they become a serious problem.
Personalised Preventive Dentistry
Every patient is different and faces different medical and dental challenges throughout their lifetimes. We customise treatment plans to meet the changing needs of our patients and to empower patients to improve their oral health.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Dr Matthew Kinsella and Dr Bradley Shepherd believe in presenting the full picture of your oral health, realising that each patient has the right to choose their own treatments from the options available.
Our dental exams include:
- An evaluation of soft tissue and gums
- A tooth-by-tooth evaluation
- Oral cancer screening
- Bite analysis
We may also periodically recommend x-rays to identify those conditions not visible to the naked eye alone. This can include bone loss, decay and certain cysts or tumours. We may also refer patients seeking dental implant treatment for a CBCT image prior to surgery.
We also offer the following preventive treatments:
- Fluoride application
- Dental sealants
- Sports mouth guards
- Bruxism (teeth grinding) night guards
Professional Dental Cleaning and Gum Treatments
Even if you brush and floss your teeth by the book and eat a healthy diet, most people will still develop tartar in between teeth and just below the gumline. Some patients develop tartar more quickly than others because of genetics, diet and ageing. We will recommend dental cleanings based on your needs. For many people that means a visit to the clinic every six months or even yearly. For others, every 3-4 months may be more effective.
Our hygienists and oral therapists enjoy working with patients toward healthy teeth and gums. No two dental cleanings are alike because no two patients are alike!
If gum disease develops, we offer a deep clean to remove bacteria and infection so that your gums can heal. Our maintenance program helps patients who struggle with periodontal disease due to medical conditions, such as diabetes, stay on top of their treatment for a healthier smile and a healthier body.
Research links periodontal disease to systemic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory illnesses. Since gum disease is an inflammatory condition, controlling it is a necessary part of achieving better overall health and longevity.
