Children’s Dental Care in Hartland, MI
We recommend that parents bring their children to their first dental appointment by the time they turn one. Early dental care is key to helping younger patients learn how to care for their smiles. These early appointments also help relieve dental fear and anxiety once they know that our office is full of friendly dentists that want to help them maintain their oral health. During routine appointments for our younger patients, we provide dental cleanings and examinations.
To prepare patients for their first appointment, parents can act out a dental cleaning or even brush their child’s tooth or teeth. We want our patients to feel comfortable when they visit, so parents reinforcing the excitement and fun of an office visit can help younger patients receive care.
What Are Sealants and Fluoride Treatments?
We recommend dental sealants and fluoride treatments as children grow older. Sealants are best for patients 6 to 12 as their molars emerge. Dental sealants are thin coatings we paint on the back teeth or molars. Molars are especially prone to cavities because they can be hard to clean. Sealants cover the molar’s chewing surfaces and keep cavity-causing bacteria from infecting teeth.
Fluoride benefits patients from 6 months to 16 years old. We offer fluoride treatments for children in our office at routine appointments. Coating a fluoride varnish to each tooth strengthens the enamel and, like sealants, prevents tooth decay. Using sealants and fluoride prevents oral health problems common among children, including decay and dental cavities.
Restorative and Cosmetic Care
As patients grow older, they may find they need to address new dental problems. Tooth discoloration, damage, and loss not only affect the look of the smile but also the patient’s oral health. At Hartland Dental Care, we offer take-home and in-office teeth whitening treatments. Philips Zoom! treatments can deliver results within four in-office treatments. However, if patients have sensitive teeth or want to try something different, we offer take-home whitening treatment.
Additionally, if patients have deep tooth stains, we can recommend dental veneers or tooth bonding treatment. These treatments also cover crooked or damaged teeth. Patients can lose permanent teeth in accidents or because of an infection or injury. Our office provides dental implants and implant-secured restorations to keep patients’ smiles full and balanced.
