Your Twice-Yearly Check-Up and Cavity Prevention Programme

Many years ago, most people’s teeth were in bad shape. There were no guidelines at the time for taking care of one’s oral health, and few people visited a dentist unless they were experiencing a problem.

Now that we know better and understand the importance of preventive care, we have no excuses for not taking care of our teeth and gums. Studies are also pointing to more of a connection between oral health and systemic health, so keeping our mouth healthy contributes to keeping our body healthy.

For general dentistry in West Perth, WA, we invite you to contact Western Prosthodontic Centre. If it’s been a while since you have seen the ...

Being unhappy with the way your smile looks can take a toll on your self-esteem and self-image. If your teeth are misshapen, chipped or discoloured, you might avoid showing your smile, and this can impact the way others perceive you.

How Long Can I Expect My New Crown to Last?

When patients ask us this question, the dentists at our West Perth, WA dental clinic tell them that most dental crowns that are well-maintained will last somewhere around 15 years. In some cases, however, crowns can last quite a bit longer than that. Much will depend on a person’s oral hygiene habits as well as the everyday wear to which a dental crown is exposed.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are a common restoration, usually recommended for teeth needing repair because of:

  • Bite misalignment
  • Deep decay
  • Fractures or cracks
  • Poor shape or discolouration
  • Root canal therapy
  • Wear and erosion

How to Extend the Longevity of Your Dental Crown

Dental crowns are strong, durable restorations, but they do not last forever. ...

Why a Root Canal Is a Good Thing

Root canal. These two words are probably some of the most feared in dentistry. But the pain that usually occurs leading up to a root canal is far more dramatic than the procedure. In fact, root canal treatment at our West Perth, WA surgery is not much different than getting a dental filling.

Signs You Might Need a Root Canal

A toothache that becomes unbearable is one of the most common signs that you might need root canal treatment. The pain is often ...

Handling Common Dental Emergencies

  • A knocked-out (avulsed) tooth—This is probably one of the most frightening dental emergencies, but if you seek treatment straight away, there is a good possibility the dentist can save your tooth. Try to place the tooth back into the socket. If that doesn’t work, just keep it moist until you can get ...
