Dentistry for Kids
Clinton Township, MI

Young girl brushing her teeth at Enhance Family Dental in Clinton Township, MI.The first visit to the dentist can be a frightening time for kids. From hearing horror stories of tooth extractions, your child may be very nervous and reluctant to see a dentist. Don’t let your fear or your kids’ fears stop you from getting a dental check-up at Enhance Family Dental.

Tooth decay is the most common dental disease in children, and its impact is huge. American children lose 51 million school hours every year due to tooth-related absences. Mastering your fear and visiting us regularly can have positive long-term health consequences for your child.

Caring for Baby Teeth

At Enhance Family Dental, we make extra effort to create a fun and uplifting environment where your child feels safe, secure, and happy. Keep in mind that bringing your children in for dental care, as early as they begin sprouting teeth, can keep them from developing long-lasting problems.

At one time, parents did not feel primary teeth were important. If their child suffered from tooth decay or chipping, they would wait until the tooth fell off on its own and is replaced by a permanent tooth.

However, we believe that caring for your child’s baby teeth can result in long-lasting oral health benefits. Making sure your child’s baby teeth remain safe and sound for a long time can prevent:
•  Misalignment because of missing primary teeth
•  Gum diseases
•  Decay and infection spreading into permanent teeth
•  Long-term orthodontic care

These issues can be avoided if your kids’ teeth are maintained properly from a young age.

Dental Care for Children

At Enhance Family Dental, Brian Hill, DDS can perform specialized tasks and procedures on children, including:
•  Providing dental cleanings
•  Applying fluoride treatment, sealants, and dental fillings
•  Counseling on nutrition and diet
•  Distributing relaxation medication
•  Managing space after a child prematurely loses a tooth
•  Preventing thumb sucking

We can also recommend special products for small teeth and mouths, that not only encourage children to observe oral health care, but do so in a fun and engaging way.

How To Get Your Child Accustomed To Dental Visits

Please do not wait until your kids have actual cavities before bringing them to us. Start their regular dental visits as early as possible, preferably after they turn one so that we can detect any potential oral issues while your kid’s teeth are still emerging. If your child does not have any dental problems, we can teach them how to brush and floss their teeth properly to keep them nice and shiny.

If you start early on, it will make your child accustomed to dental visits, and they will see it as a fun and learning experience.

If you have waited until your child has oral issues, you can still help your kids associate their visits to Enhance Family Dental with positivity. Explain to your child that we will help them fix their teeth, get rid of the dental pain, and teach them from having the same problem again. Remember, a small reward at the end of the visit can help them look forward to the experience!

At Enhance Family Dental, we recommend children should have a dental check-up after every six months, although some may require them more frequently, depending on their oral health. Guide your child, as early as possible, on the path to good oral hygiene. To schedule an appointment for your child, call us at (586) 666-4950.
