Tendler Dental - Family Dentistry

Tendler Dental Clinic’s goal is to provide convenient, all-purpose family dentistry in the Melbourne area offering a comprehensive range of traditional dental services. Including checkups, cleanings, fillings, fissure sealants and root canal treatments, Tendler Dental Surgery provides a broad range of services to patients of all ages. Offering a customised, molded mouthguard service to protect the integrity of the teeth, Tendler Dental puts prevention first.

General and family dentistry includes the following services:

Checkup and Clean

For an experienced, thorough family dentist in Melbourne that focuses specifically on dental hygiene, try the dentists at Tendler. Because prevention is always better than treatment, Tendler’s dentists recommend regular checkups and cleaning. Regular checkups mean that dental health issues associated with gum disease (or periodontal disease) and fillings can be taken care of before more extensive dental work is required.

Fissure Sealants

Dental fissures are the grooves that naturally occur on the biting surface of the teeth. Over time, plaque and food will begin to decay the fissure. Fissure sealants are the thin resin coating which is bonded to the tooth to protect the biting surface from decay. Fissure sealants are completely painless and injection free.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal treatment (or endodontic treatment) aims to save a damaged, diseased or decayed tooth from removal by replacing a tooth’s damaged or infected pulp with a filling. Tendler Dental clinic takes digital x-rays to confirm diagnosis before commencing root canal treatment.


Tendler Dental offers a customised, moulded mouthguard service. To protect the integrity of the teeth during sport, and prevent the need for more expensive work being required if injury should occur, a mouthguard is an easy choice. A custom built mouthguard is a far superior alternative to an off-the-shelf product because it is made to fit your teeth accurately and remain firmly in place. The cushioning material in the Tendler Dental mouthguards is called ethyl vinyl acetate and is designed specifically to absorb impact and help buffer the mouth and teeth from trauma, tooth loss or permanent damage.


Dental fillings are used to restore worn or damaged teeth and treat tooth decay. A dental filling includes removal of decay, shaping of the space to be filled and placing the filling accordingly.

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays provide the dentist with a significantly greater ability to detect and diagnose problems with the teeth and mouth that may not be identifiable to the naked eye. In order to recommend the most appropriate family dental care treatment, digital X-rays are often imperative. Digital X-rays can be used to identify decay between teeth and under crowns and fillings as well as determine the best course of action for wisdom teeth, gum disease and tooth removal. With digital X-rays, images are displayed immediately and exposure to radiation is 90% less than traditional film X-rays.
