If your child has continual problems with cavities, bleeding gums, or other oral issues, it could affect how well they can eat and bring on malnutrition rather quickly. Dental problems can also lead to speech that isn't that easy to understand. By teaching your child how to care for his or her teeth, you and the pediatric dentist can head off a lot of potential problems in other areas of the child's life.


Our Childrens Dentist Specializes In These Services And More:

Cleanings and Fluoride Application

We recommend a professional cleaning and fluoride application every 6 months to help protect the teeth and gums. For patients considered high-risk by the dentist for developing dental decay, a cleaning every 3 or 4 months may be considered.

Sealants

If your child has a pit or fissure caries, they need to be sealed as soon as possible. We will use sealants to reduce the risk of a pit or fissures. Over the course of the years, we shall periodically monitor and reassess your child's sealant to either remove or replace the sealant as needed.

Space Maintainers

If your child's baby tooth requires extraction or is lost well before the adult tooth that replaces it shows up, a space maintainer may be required in order to preserve the space. These may be placed on one side of the mouth, or may extend to both sides of the mouth.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, colorless and almost odorless gas, is a safe and an effective analgesic/anxiolygic agent used to calm a child's anxiety and pain during a dental procedure. Nitrous oxide is absorbed rapidly for both rapid onset and recovery.

Hospital Dentistry

Children with extreme dental phobia, extensive dental decay, and/or complex medical conditions often benefit from hospital dentistry in which the treatment is completed in one appointment while the patient is under general anesthesia. Our doctors have special hospital privileges at Children's Hospital of Michigan (DMC) in Detroit where they are on staff to treat patients of our offices. The decision to perform your child's dental treatment under general anesthesia at the hospital will be thoroughly discussed with you by one of our pediatric dentists during your visit to our office.

Baby teeth actually serve several functions. Keeping the primary teeth healthy is not only aesthetically pleasing, but if teeth decay and require extraction, it makes chewing difficult for the child. The decay of baby teeth can also damage the permanent teeth. Although your child's baby teeth or primary teeth are not permanent, they require the same dental care as the permanent teeth.
