General Dental Services Perth
It is very important to visit a dentist on a regular basis. During every routine examination with our team we will be very thorough. Examinations are vital to check for any potential tooth decay, gum disease and any underlying oral health issues such as oral cancer. We recommend to have your teeth and mouth checked every 6 months and of course sooner if you have any problems.
Routine Dental Examinations
At Perth Dental Rooms we strongly encourage all our patients to visit us at least every 6 months for a general examination. At these appointments our team with examine the health of your teeth, gums and mouth. This will allow us to identify and problems that you may have and attempt to fix them before they develop into something more complex and painful.
X-rays are hugely important in helping our dentists diagnose your problems. We have a number of digital x-ray machines to help further examine your teeth and jaws. Our state of the art digital technology exposes our patients to extremely low dosages of radiation, minimising the risks that can be associated with x-rays. Following the Australian Dental Association’s guidelines, we strongly recommend screening x-rays for all patients every 2 years.
Scale and Cleans
Our team includes our highly experienced hygienist, Amela. Amela has specific training in dental hygiene so she can offer you the very best care in your oral health. We strongly recommend scale and cleans every 3 to 6 months. As preferred providers for all major health funds, these cleans are often fully covered.
Along with cleans, we also recommend 6 monthly fluoride treatments to further strengthen your teeth and greatly reduce the risk of dental decay from occurring.
Fillings are used to repair decayed, broken or chipped teeth. We use a natural looking white coloured material called composite. Composite fillings are an easy, safe and inexpensive solution when restoring a tooth.
If you have old Amalgam (silver) fillings these can be easily changed to Composite fillings on request.
Fissure seals are often confused with being fillings. However, a fissure seal is offered to you as a way of preventing decay from starting. Some molar teeth can develop deep grooves and pits in them. It can then be hard for you to brush food and bacteria out of these grooves and if left unattended may cause decay. Fissure seals are used as a way to seal the grooves to make them smooth and easier to keep clean.
