Maintaining Healthy Smiles

Preventative DentistryAt Dentist Perth, our Wembley Downs, Sorrento and Doubleview family dentists believe that prevention is far better than any cure. When it comes to dental disease, our preventative care services can help ensure that you don’t need major surgery. Some of the most common problems that we assist you in avoiding include tooth decay and gum disease. Both are completely preventable!

Scheduling Your Next Checkup With Us

We recommend routine preventative visits to screen for problems before they become established. Think of coming in for regular visits like taking your car in for oil changes at regular intervals. Doing so can help your vehicle run better and prevent costly repairs. Likewise, seeing your dentist every six months may prevent serious and potentially costly problems. A little problem is prevented from becoming a big problem.

At your check-up visit, we’ll also discuss healthy oral habits with you that you can implement that will keep you smiling.
Most of our patients, even if dentally healthy benefit from a checkup every six months. During these visits with our hygienists, we provide essential preventative therapies such as

Comprehensive exams and X-rays

  • Scale and polish
  • Fissure sealants for children
  • Splints for night grinding
  • Mouth guards for sports protection
  • Fluoride treatments to combat decay
  • Screening for periodontal disease
  • Screening for oral cancer

5 Tips for Keeping Your Pearly Whites & Mouth Healthy

Here are some practical ways to maintain a beautiful and healthy smile at home:

  • Brush for at least two minutes each time
  • Rinse your toothbrush after brushing
  • Floss once a day using a dentally correct flossing technique
  • Use a tongue scraper to clean your tongue
  • Change your toothbrush every 3-4 months
