Children's Teeth Cleaning & Cavity Treatment
If your child experiences continual problems with cavities, bleeding gums, or other oral issues, it can be difficult for your child to eat and get the proper nutrition to promote strong teeth and bones. In addition to general pediatric dental care, we can also provide acute care, such as children's cavity treatment and tooth restorations in our dental office.
By teaching your child how to care for his or her teeth, you and the pediatric dentist can help prevent these and other potential long term problems. We'll help your child learn about what is happening inside his or her mouth and provide you both with best dental habits to keep his or her mouth healthy.
Sometimes traditional approaches to treatment are insufficient to calm or soothe an extremely anxious or fearful child. In this case, we recommend sedation. The truth is, children with memories of an unpleasant visit to the dentist may develop a phobia that can be carried over into adulthood and can lead to neglect of his/her oral health.
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.
Children with an extreme dental phobia, extensive dental decay, and/or complex medical conditions may need to have the treatments performed in one visit, at the hospital dentist, 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 should not be taken lightly. If you think your child is a candidate for hospital dentistry, we will thoroughly discuss this option with you during your visit to our office.
Our patients' parents love our dental office!
