Bloomfield Hills, MI
It’s best to begin taking your child to the dentist at an early age. This encourages children to learn healthy oral habits early in life and can help them keep their teeth healthy and strong. While some people tend to think baby teeth aren’t important, this is false. Children need healthy teeth to chew and speak properly.
Teaching them about oral health early can ingrain good oral habits for life and maintaining a healthy mouth can promote overall health.

What to Expect
Pediatric dentistry can help a child learn lifelong oral health, so finding a dentist that makes your child comfortable is a great first step. Look for a dentist that offers a kid-friendly atmosphere and staff that are trained to work with children.
When you’ve found the right dentist and made an appointment, there are a few things you can expect to happen.
- X-rays – The dentist’s office will take x-rays of your child’s teeth just as they do at an adult visit. This will typically take place once a year but may happen at every visit.
- Exam – The dentist will perform an overall examination of the mouth to check for cavities, problem areas, and general health and development of the teeth.
- Cleaning – Your child will undergo a gentle cleaning to help remove plaque and maintain clean teeth.
If any problems arise, your dentist will speak with you about them to determine the best course of action. This might include a filling, a cap, or other procedures. Other services might also be offered, such as fluoride treatments.
Your dentist will also talk to you about the development of your child’s teeth. They can help you map out the possibility of future dental needs such as wisdom teeth care, or the possible need for braces.
