Family Dentist Services Around Warren

If your child is having certain oral health or development issues, the pediatric dental specialists at Children's Dental Specialists are here to help. Our pediatric dentist specializes in treating only children and teens. A pediatric dentist must complete advanced training in children's dentistry during their residency, after dental school, where they become equipped to diagnose and treat a range of complex childhood oral heath problems. From toddlers to teenagers, Children's Dental Specialists can help your child keep a happy, healthy, and confident smile in all the different stages of their life.

Warren MI's Leading Family Dentist - Children's Dental Specialists - tooth1Tooth Care Affects More Than Tooth Health

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 Family Dentist Specializes In These Services And More:

Treatment of Disease/Injury

When we diagnose oral disease or trauma, we will provide therapy or when necessary refer your child to an appropriately trained doctor for treatment. If your child sustains a dental emergency, such as a toothache, knocked out tooth, or fractured tooth, please call our office immediately.

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.

Sedation Dentistry

There are times when traditional approaches to treatment are insufficient to calm or soothe an extremely apprehensive or fearful child. Children who have experienced an unpleasant visit at the dentist may develop a phobia that can be carried over into adulthood and can lead to neglect of his/her oral health. The good news is that this fear can be reversed and children can actually develop a positive perception of going to the dentist regardless of negative past experiences. Children's Dental Specialists' goal is to provide all our patients warm, compassionate, and quality dental care. We believe that by providing treatment in a gentle and caring manner, we can instill confidence and a lasting positive impression of dental care in your child. We offer many treatment options, including oral sedation and hospital dentistry at Children's Hospital of Michigan in Detroit, tailored to the individual needs of our young patients and parents.

Pulpal Therapy for Primary and Immature Teeth

If your child's baby or adult teeth have large cavities that are either close to or into the nerve tissue, the tooth may require a pulpal therapy. We may either perform the following; a pulpotomy (removal of a portion of the infected nerve tissue leaving healthy tissue), a pulpectomy (removal of entire nerve tissue from canals), or root canal therapy. Symptoms that may require pulpal therapy include:

1. An abscess (or pimple) on the gums
2. Sensitivity to hot and cold
3. Severe toothache pain
4. Sometimes no symptoms are present
5. Swelling and/or tenderness


Your Child's First Visit To Our Family Dentist Near Warren

If you are the parent of an infant or toddler, the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that the first dental visit be scheduled shortly after your child reaches 6 months of age, or when the first tooth appears. The first dental visit can be a bit anxiety-inducing for both children and parents, but no worries -- our staff is fully equipped and trained to keep your child happy and calm.

Don't be nervous and wait too long for your child's first exam! Tooth decay can occur as soon as your child's first tooth is cut. Bacteria that are present in everyone's mouth changes the sugar in foods and drinks into acid. Every time your child eats or drinks, the sugar in the food or drink is changed into acid that can attack the teeth for 20 minutes or longer. Continued acid attacks lead to tooth decay and infections. Infections around the tooth can become serious perhaps requiring IV antibiotics or surgical drainage.

Additionally, it's important to get a baseline exam to see how your child's dental health is doing from the start. Our pediatric dentists will even demonstrate how to brush and care for your child's small teeth and properly address any odd patterns occurring - and address those quickly.
