WE CARE ABOUT YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

At Boroondara Dental Clinic we believe proper dental care and good oral hygiene are essential to maintaining overall wellness. 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.

We also recognise the link between oral and 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 is made up of highly-trained and compassionate dental professionals who are committed to providing care that is tailored to meet your individual needs.

Children’s Dentistry Ivanhoe

Children's dentist Ivanhoe

At Boroondara Family Dentist, we provide gentle, respectful dental care for children of all ages in Ivanhoe and the surrounding suburbs.

We strive to teach children good oral habits to help them maintain a healthy mouth for a lifetime. The Child Dental Benefits Scheme by Medicare offers eligible children $1000 worth 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. 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.

It’s recommended for children to start seeing a dentist at the age of three or four. Regular dental visits help maintain good oral health. Delaying a visit until a child experiences pain can create a distressing first encounter and potentially cause lasting fear issues.

Boroondara Family Dentist is a quality cosmetic dentist that delivers exceptional dental care to patients in Ivanhoe and the surrounding areas.

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 recognisable attributes of your face and is frequently the initial point of notice for others. It conveys your mood, sociability, and overall state of well-being. According to the Australian Society of Orthodontics (ASO), over half of Australians feel self-conscious about their smiles.

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

Frequently Asked Questions – Dental Clinic Near Ivanhoe

How often should I visit my local Ivanhoe 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 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. Fluoride toothpaste, mouthwash, and mouthwash all help to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

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. In order to prevent these problems, it is important to practice proper oral hygiene, consume a healthy diet, and schedule regular dental checkups.

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 make nitrous oxide, also known as happy gas, available to help ease your anxiety. It is a colourless and odourless gas that functions as a mild sedative, appropriate for children and adults alike.

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?

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.
