Prevention is always better than a cure because it avoids you having to undergo more painful and costly treatment down the track. That’s why you’ll be shown how to properly care for your teeth and gums during your appointments, so you can maintain your oral health in between routine check-ups.
Regularly brushing and flossing plays a large role in keeping tooth decay at bay. Preventive dentistry involves maintaining the health of your teeth and gums by keeping a good oral hygiene routine, attending regular check-ups and professional cleans and protecting your teeth and jaws in your everyday life. Our preventive dentistry services include:
Good oral health leads to good overall health and not just a pleasant smile. At EVP Dental, our dedicated oral hygiene department provides comprehensive scale and cleans along with oral health care tips to clean your teeth and gums at home.
Periodontal treatment for advanced gum disease (known as periodontitis) aims to deep clean the teeth and roots to remove stubborn plaque. If left untreated, the gum around the tooth weakens and pulls away, leaving pockets for bacteria to breed and loosening teeth to the point where they fall out.
The earlier we identify advanced gum disease, the better the chances of bringing your gums back to health.
A custom-fitted sports mouthguard by EVP Dental in Perth provides the maximum level of protection and comfort. We're able to design custom made mouthguards to match your sporting teams' colours, and depending on your private health insurance policy, a mouthguard may even be gap-free for yourself or your child.
A custom-made night splint is a type of mouthguard that helps prevent damage to teeth caused by teeth grinding (bruxism) or clenching. The night guard is worn while you sleep and stops excessive strain on the teeth and jaws that can over time cause temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD). Another type of custom mouthguard that exists is called a mandibular advancement device (MAD) which may be worn to help treat mild to moderate sleep apnoea.
Attending regular check-ups and routine cleans can help your dentist examine and diagnose dental problems early enough to treat them with minimal intervention. All oral health concerns, including minor toothaches can be diagnosed using one or more tools that reveal what can’t be seen with the naked eye.

According to the Australian Dental Association (ADA) it is better to spit out the toothpaste from your mouth rather than rinsing out as this provides on going protection to tooth enamel.
Hygienists and Oral Health Therapists are professionally qualified to clean your teeth safely and carefully and do not damage teeth. it’s common to experience a bit of tooth sensitivity after a professional clean, this is because of the effects caused by decay rather than the process of it being removed.
