We believe that dental care is vital for good oral and overall health. We know that visiting the dental office can be stressful, and we want to help you feel as relaxed and comfortable as we can.

Oral health is also linked to overall health. Studies have shown gum disease, a dental problem, can increase the likelihood of developing other health problems like diabetes and heart diseases. Regular dental visits can help you maintain good oral health and reduce your risk for these health issues. By making regular dental visits your priority, we encourage you to be proactive in maintaining good oral health. Our team of experienced and caring dentists is committed to providing personalised care that meets your goals and needs.

Children’s Dentistry Hawthorn East

Children's dentist Hawthorn East

At Boroondara Family Dentist, we offer gentle and respectful dental care for children of all ages in Hawthorn East and the nearby suburbs.

Our goal is to educate children about good oral habits to promote a lifelong healthy mouth. The Child Dental Benefits Scheme by Medicare offers eligible children $1000 worth of dental care over a 2-year period.

Dental care is really important for children. Instances of decay among children are on the rise in Australia. In 2010, decay was found in the baby teeth of 55% of 6-year-olds and in the permanent teeth of 48% of 12-year-olds.

We advise children to start attending dental appointments when they’re three or four years old. Consistent dental visits promote healthy teeth. Postponing a visit until the child is in pain can make their first experience traumatic and possibly result in long-lasting fear issues.

Do you find yourself worrying about the aesthetics of your smile? Does that visibly crooked tooth concern you? Have you observed that your teeth appear less white? Is it affecting your confidence?

Your smile is one of the most identifiable features of your face and is often the initial aspect that draws attention. It signifies your mood, sociability, and general well-being. According to the Australian Society of Orthodontics (ASO), over half of Australians experience self-consciousness about their smiles.

The good news is that cosmetic dentistry can greatly improve the appearance of your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions – Dental Clinic Near Hawthorn East

How often should I visit my local Hawthorn East dentist?

Regular dental cleanings and checkups are recommended every six months. If you have a dental problem history or are at higher risk of developing dental problems, your dentist might recommend more frequent dental visits.

What should I expect during a dental check-up?

During your dental checkup, your dentist examines your teeth and your gums looking for signs of dental problems, such as oral cancer, gum disease or cavities. The dentist may take X-rays in order to detect issues that are not immediately visible.

How can I improve my oral hygiene?

Brush your teeth twice a day for two full minutes, and floss at least once a day. Using fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash can also help to prevent gum disease and cavities.

What are some common dental problems and how can I prevent them?

The most common dental issues are tooth decay, gingivitis, and cancer of the mouth. For prevention, you should practice good oral health, eat healthy, and see your dentist for regular check-ups.

What are the benefits of professional teeth cleaning?

Professional teeth cleaning can help remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to gum disease if left untreated. It can also remove surface stains from your teeth, giving you a brighter, whiter smile.

How can I manage dental anxiety?

We offer nitrous oxide, commonly called happy gas, to help diminish your anxiety levels. It’s a colourless, odourless gas that acts as a gentle sedative and can be administered to both children and adults.

How can I improve the appearance of my teeth?

Cosmetic dental procedures, like teeth whitening, veneers, and bonding, can enhance the appearance of your teeth. Rely on your dentist to help you choose the best option to meet your specific goals and requirements.

What is a dental emergency and how should I handle it?

When you experience a dental emergency, such as a knocked-out tooth or severe tooth pain, you need prompt treatment from a dentist. Contact your dental professional right away for immediate attention.
