General and Preventive Dentistry
Promoting excellent oral health is one of our biggest responsibilities. To get a sparkling, brilliant smile, you need to know how to care for your mouth correctly.
At Smile Dental Studios Gosnells, we provide a wide range of general and preventive dentistry services, which focus on your overall oral health.
We promote the prevention of problems related to the teeth and gums, but should such problems arise, we offer diagnosis and treatment to encourage proper functionality of your teeth and mouth.
The Smile Dental Studios Gosnells team will help you achieve the best of both worlds – an attractive smile and a healthy mouth.
Whether you’re a long-time patient or you’re introducing your child to the world of dentistry, we’ll teach you the proper ways to take care of your teeth and gums, such as oral hygiene habits that keep your teeth looking and feeling beautiful and healthy.
Our General and Preventive Dentistry Services in Gosnells
We provide a comprehensive range of general and preventive dental procedures, which include:
We provide regular dental exams for all our patients. Our dental exams include oral cancer screenings, a full set of X-rays, periodontal exams, and hygiene assessment.
If any changes occur in your oral health between exams, or if you haven’t been checked for a while, we may perform exams more regularly.
Our dental X-rays allow us to have a close look at the situation under the surface, while exposing you to 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays.
We’re able to provide you with images conveniently and help you identify any issues we see in the high-resolution images. These X-rays lets you make informed choices about your treatment.
Teeth Cleaning and Polishing (removal of plaque, calculus and stain)
Teeth cleaning ranges from removing dental plaque from teeth to preventing cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease.
People routinely clean their teeth by brushing, and interdental cleaning and dental hygienists can remove tartar not removed by regular cleaning.
Fluoride brings back essential minerals to tooth enamel and is vital for your child’s developing teeth.
We provide fluoride treatments for children and adults who experience teeth sensitivity, and may benefit from fluoride treatments.
The fluoride is applied in either foam or varnish form, depending on the patient.
Fissure sealants are resin-based coatings that are painted in the grooves of the back teeth.
The sealant forms a protective coating to keep food and bacteria from getting stuck in the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing tooth decay.
Direct Tooth Coloured Fillings
Tooth-coloured fillings are durable and are ideal for filling cavities in the back of the mouth, such as in the molars, where chewing takes place.
Since they are made of tooth-coloured materials, they are undetectable when you laugh or smile.
Indirect Tooth Coloured Filling (Inlays or Onlays)
Inlays and onlays are restorations made outside of the mouth as a single piece that fit the specific size and form of a cavity.
The restoration is bonded in place in the molars or premolars. This is an effective alternative to direct restorations, made out of composite, amalgam, or glass ionomer, that are made inside the mouth.
Crowns and Bridges
A crown is a replacement cap for a tooth. It is used when your tooth is severely discoloured, cracked or broken, heavily filled, or if fillings have been lost.
A dental bridge is a ceramic structure that “bridges” the gap left by a missing tooth.
A ceramic tooth is bonded between two or more porcelain crowns on both sides of the missing tooth that serve as anchors.
The anchor teeth are shaped to support the crowns, and then a bridge is bonded securely over these teeth.
Dentures (Plastic, Metal or Flexible)
Dentures are removable restorations for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. The two types of dentures are complete and partial dentures.
Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth are left.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a treatment for infected tooth pulp, which results in the removal of the infection and the protection of the cleaned tooth from future microbial invasion.
Treatment for Gum Disease
If you have any symptoms of periodontal diseases, such as swollen, bleeding, or receding gums, it may be time for a gum check-up.
Gum disease is a leading cause of adult tooth loss; so preventing and treating it is extremely important to maintaining proper oral health.
Tooth Removal (extractions)
Tooth removal is performed by a dentist or oral surgeon and is a relatively quick outpatient procedure with either local, general, intravenous anaesthesia, or a combination.
Extracting visible teeth is considered a simple extraction. Teeth that are broken, below the surface, or impacted need a more involved procedure.
Everyone deals with stress differently. For some, it causes them to grind their teeth while sleeping.
Over time, this can damage tooth enamel and any restorations to the point that the teeth crack and break.
If you think that you might be grinding your teeth while sleeping, let our team know. We can provide you with a nightguard that is made to fit perfectly in your mouth.
This oral appliance prevents the teeth from touching while you are asleep, keeping them safe.
Wearing the right safety appliances is important for any athlete, no matter what their sport. But many forget to protect one of the most important parts of their body – their teeth!
Instead of wearing an uncomfortable, store-bought mouthguard, our team can provide you with one made just for you.
Your custom-made sportsguard will be shaped to fit securely over your teeth, allowing easy breathing and speaking, and providing much better protection from any unexpected blows.
