Your Ann Arbor Pediatric Dentistry
At Dental House, we love watching our patients’ smiles grow and develop. We believe it’s never too early to start teaching your little ones about how to care their teeth!
Taking Care of Your Kid's Oral Health
We recommend starting care on a child’s first birthday (after all the cake, of course). This allows our team at pediatric dentists to monitor the potential challenges and treat them as soon as possible.
The sooner a potential problem is identified, the quicker it can be addressed and resolved.
Regular check-ups are important for improving your kid's oral health.
Colored Fillings for Children
At Dental House, we use tooth and rainbow-colored fillings for both pediatric and adult fillings. We believe that your child’s smile should look as natural as possible. We never want them to stop grinning from ear to ear because they’re worried someone will see a filling in their mouth!
Baby Teeth Monitoring
Just because baby teeth eventually fall out doesn’t mean they should be neglected. We actively monitor baby teeth for signs of decay and cavities. Healthy teeth are vital for speech development, self-esteem and pain avoidance. View our article on when you need a dentist for your baby.
We recommend twice-yearly cleanings to maintain a healthy smile. During each visit, we may recommend a fluoride treatment to help strengthen teeth.
When cavities are detected, we use tooth-colored fillings. On rare occasions, a pediatric crown may be recommended if the tooth is too small or damaged for a traditional filling.
