General Dental Care

General Dental

General dental care goes a long way in preserving your oral health and improving your quality of life.

Focusing on preventative dentistry, we strive to provide you with dental solutions that help prevent tooth decay and gum disease, so that you can enjoy life with optimal oral health. At Alpha Dental, we take the time to work closely with you to give you a long-term dental plan and better oral health education to keep your family’s teeth healthy for as long as possible.  This way you can save on unavoidable and extensive dental treatments that can arise from poor oral care.

Our range of General Dentistry services conveniently takes place at our dental clinic in Perth and include:

One of the easiest ways to keep your teeth clean and cavity free is with a regular examination with scale and clean. This routine procedure involves removing the build-up of plaque and tartar that is unable to be removed with normal everyday brushing and flossing to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

The thorough treatment will be carried out by one of our dedicated dentist or hygienist at our dental clinic in Perth and will take no longer than approximately 45 minutes.

Did you know your next scale and clean could potentially be covered completely by your private health insurance? Contact Alpha Dental for more information.

When do you need a scale and clean?
On average every 6 months or earlier so your dentist can tend to:
- Plaque and calculus build-up that cannot be removed with day to day oral care
- Stained teeth from smoking, coffee, tea or red wine
- Preventative measures to maintain good oral health

If you’re currently suffering from jaw pain, bleeding gums around the back teeth, bad breath or repeated sore throats, your wisdom teeth may be the cause of it.

We understand wisdom teeth removals can be nerve-racking, that’s why we offer local anaesthetic as well as sleep dentistry, so you have a safe, comfortable and pain-free experience.

When do my wisdom teeth need to be removed?
Every case is different, that’s why we recommend contacting Alpha Dental and booking a personalised consultation so we can address all your questions and concerns before proceeding with a dental plan and treatment.

Also known as Endodontics, is a safe and effective alternative that is used as a last resort to save your infected or badly damaged tooth before considering an extraction.

During a root canal procedure, our dentists will remove the infected pulp of the tooth before giving it a good clean and then sealing it with appropriate medication. Thanks to the latest in dental technology, root canal therapy is much less daunting than what it used to be and will help maintain your natural smile.
If you’re currently experiencing tooth sensitivity or extreme biting discomfort, contact Alpha Dental for a personalised consultation. Prolonging your visit to the dentist can cause the infection to spread, reducing the chances of saving your tooth.

Dental fillings help to restore cavities, which are the result of tooth decay. Using tooth-coloured dental fillings, we help restore function back to your teeth and potentially relieve any discomfort associated with cavities, so that you can go about your day.

At Alpha Dental we use composite fillings (white coloured), to preserve your natural smile and keep your teeth healthy for longer. If you’re currently experiencing pain or tooth sensitivity, speak to one of our dentists.

Enjoy a healthier set of natural teeth for longer with preventive dentistry solutions such as a night splint

If you find yourself suffering from an aching jaw and teeth each morning, you could be grinding your teeth in your sleep.
Teeth grinding and clenching, also known as Bruxism, occurs during your sleep and over time, wears down the enamel of your tooth, exposing the dentin — and in some cases may cause tooth loss. This is when you will start to experience pain and sensitivity when consuming things such as hot soup or ice cream.

A night splint is designed to protect and preserve your teeth from the pressure of grinding and clenching during your sleep so that you can maintain your natural smile and bite.
If you are after a mouthguard for sport, contact our team for support.
