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.

Understanding the relationship between oral health, overall health, and both is important. Studies have shown that dental problems such as gum disease can increase the risk of other health issues such as heart disease and diabetes. You can lower your risk of heart disease and diabetes by maintaining good dental health. By making regular dental visits your priority, we encourage you to be proactive in maintaining good oral health. Our team of caring and experienced dental professionals is dedicated to providing personalised care that meets your specific needs and goals.

Children’s Dentistry Heidelberg

Children's dentist Heidelberg

Boroondara Family Dentist is dedicated to providing gentle and respectful dental care for children of all ages in Heidelberg and the surrounding suburbs.

Our aim is to teach children good oral habits so that they can have a healthy mouth for life. Eligible children can receive $1000 of dental care over a 2-year period through the Child Dental Benefits Scheme provided by Medicare.

Dental care is crucial for children’s overall well-being. There has been a rise in cases of tooth decay among children in Australia. In 2010, 55% of 6-year-olds had experienced decay in their baby 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.

Cosmetic Dentistry Heidelberg

Boroondara Family Dentist is a trusted cosmetic dentist that provides top-quality dental care to patients in Heidelberg and its environs.

Are you troubled by the appearance of your smile? Does that prominently misaligned tooth bother you? Have you noticed that your teeth have a slightly discoloured shade? Is it impacting your level of 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 significantly enhance the aesthetics of your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions – Dental Clinic Near Heidelberg

How often should I visit my local Heidelberg 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?

During a dental check-up, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums for any signs of dental problems such as cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer. A dentist might also take X rays to look for hidden issues.

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?

Tooth decay, gum diseases, and oral carcinoma are all common dental problems. 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?

Regular teeth cleaning by a dental professional can help remove plaque and tartar buildup, preventing gum disease from taking hold. At the same time, this procedure will also eliminate surface stains, giving you a brighter and 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?

Teeth whitening, veneers, and bonding are cosmetic dental procedures that can transform your smile. Consult your dentist to determine which option will work best for your unique goals and needs.

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

If you’re dealing with a dental emergency, such as severe tooth pain or a knocked-out tooth, it’s essential to get treatment right away. Contact your dentist immediately for prompt attention.
