At Boroondara Dental Clinic, we believe that proper dental care is essential for maintaining good oral health and overall wellbeing. We understand that visiting a dentist can feel intimidating, but as a team of experienced and caring dental professionals, our goal is to make the experience as pleasant and stress-free for you as possible.

Understanding the relationship between oral health, overall health, and both is important. Studies have shown gum disease, a dental problem, can increase the likelihood of developing other health problems like diabetes and heart diseases. You can lower your risk of heart disease and diabetes by maintaining good dental health. Make regular dental appointments a priority to play an active part in your oral care. Our experienced and caring dental professionals are dedicated to providing you with personalised care tailored to your needs and goals.

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.

We strive to teach children good oral habits to help them maintain a healthy mouth for a lifetime. Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Scheme provides eligible children with $1000 of dental care over a 2-year period.

Dental care plays a vital role in children’s overall health. The occurrence of tooth decay among children is increasing in Australia. According to 2010 data, 55% of 6-year-olds had experienced decay in their primary teeth, and 48% of 12-year-olds had experienced decay in their permanent teeth.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions – Dental Clinic Near Hawthorn East

How often should I visit my local Hawthorn East dentist?

It’s recommended to visit the dentist every six months for regular check-ups and cleanings. Your dentist may suggest more frequent visits if you’ve had dental problems in the past or are at greater risk.

What should I expect during a dental check-up?

Your dentist will examine the teeth and gums of your mouth to check for signs such as oral or dental cancer, gum diseases, 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?

It is important to floss and brush twice daily for two minutes. 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. To prevent these issues, it’s important to practice good oral hygiene, eat a healthy diet, and visit the dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.

What are the benefits of professional teeth cleaning?

When you receive professional teeth cleaning, you’re removing tartar and plaque build-up that can lead to gum disease. This process can also eradicate surface stains, leading to 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.
