General Dentistry Procedures near Templestowe Lower:

We offer a variety of general dentistry procedures to ensure your teeth are in the best possible health!


We provide initial dental consultations to all our new patients where we can provide comprehensive dental care and advice on oral hygiene.


Regular maintenance is so important for the health of your mouth. Not only for your teeth, but your gums and bone too, which is the foundation that helps hold everything together. We recommend regular dental check-ups every 6-12 months.


White fillings can be required for a few reasons. There can be decay or cavities which needs to be removed and replaced with composite material or may be used when a tooth is broken and needs to be repaired.


TMD can mimic a toothache. Other symptoms may include headaches, facial pain, ear ache, clicking/grinding sounds, locking of the jaw, pain in neck, shoulders and back.


At Boroondara Family Dentist, we are all about retaining as many natural teeth as possible and this is where Root Canal Therapy (RCT) comes in. The nerve is what keeps the tooth happy and healthy so when this is damaged either by trauma or infection it can cause the tooth to die.


Gum disease is caused by plaque—consisting of bacteria and food remnants—which hardens to form tartar. It is the underlying cause of nearly all cases of bad breath. Sometimes, gum disease requires multi-disciplinary treatment.


From time to time, we need to extract teeth. They can be either emergency situations where a patient is experiencing pain or discomfort, or planned for future good oral health.


A dental crown or ‘cap’ is a covering, usually made of porcelain, that protects an existing tooth. A bridge consists of an artificial tooth or teeth, replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental crowns and bridges are cemented to your teeth.


Dental Implants have been around for a long time now, and it has been proven to be a highly successful and effective way of resorting and function and aesthetics of your teeth. Dental Implants are basically artificial teeth that we place in your jaw where the teeth are missing.


Porcelain and dental veneers are a great way to straighten, close spaces, reshape, and correct minor misalignments of your teeth. 


Teeth Whitening is one of our most popular treatments in Cosmetic Dentistry and can completely transform a smile, making it whiter and brighter. A brighter white smile is one of the most common dental desires.


Teeth wear as you age, albeit at a very slow rate. Your lifestyle and actions can increase the rate at which they wear.


Firstly, dentures can come in a few different forms. They could be a full acrylic denture which have all top or bottom teeth, or a partial acrylic or metal denture which will be more like a plate with anywhere from one up to thirteen teeth. Generally partial dentures will have clasps which help give retention so the denture isn’t moving about when you eat or talk.


We recommend that children start to see a dentist from the age of three or four. We go to the dentist regularly to make sure our teeth are nice and healthy. Leaving it until there’s pain can be a traumatic first experience for a child and something that can cause long term fear issues in the future.

Why prevention is the best dental treatment

Oral health diseases can become costlier to treat the longer they are left and, in the case of oral cancer, can even be life threatening. Oral health has been linked to the severity of a number of systemic diseases like bowel and pancreatic cancer, cardiovascular, respiratory and Alzheimer’s diseases, diabetes, strokes and adverse pregnancy outcomes. At Boroondara Family Dentist, we recommend a dental check-up every 6-12 months.

What does a dental check-up involve?

We check the health of your teeth and gums, clean tartar and take regular x-rays—using digital x-rays to reduce the amount of radiation—so that we can identify and fix problems early and prevent the need for more costly treatment. We also take the time to educate you on good oral health and, in particular, on topics that might be necessary or of interest to you, such as: flossing technique, diet and teeth grinding. We also check for dry mouth, which can be related to Sjorgen’s syndrome, lupus, diabetes and different medications. Saliva is an important natural defence against tooth decay and gum disease, something that needs to be detected and treated early.
