Prevention and early detection is the cornerstone of our dental practice near Grosse Pointe. We provide routine dental cleanings and checkups to keep your hard and soft tissues in healthy condition and prevent the development of serious oral health conditions.
Your oral health is a window into your overall health so we must keep both optimized. Conditions like tooth decay and gum disease can increase your risk for health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke, which can reduce your life expectancy.
We can prevent the formation of decay and gum disease by offering high-quality periodontal care and using preventative tools like fluoride treatments and dental sealants.
As a family dental practice, we treat patients of all ages, including young children who need specialized dental care. When your child comes into our office, they will be treated with the utmost care, attention, and understanding.
We can provide you with educational resources to teach you and your child how to care for their teeth to prevent cavities and we can help minimize dental anxiety. By taking your child to the same pediatric dentist from a young age, you provide them with a dental home that they can feel comfortable in and form long-lasting trust. This will ensure they form a positive relationship with dental hygiene for life.
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep-breathing disorder that causes patients to repeatedly cease breathing for at least 10 seconds at a time in their sleep. The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea and this is caused by over-relaxation of the tissues in the throat, causing a blockage of the airway.
While the standard treatment for sleep apnea is an uncomfortable, noisy, and claustrophobic C-PAP machine, we can offer you an alternative treatment in our office – an occlusal guard. This is a custom-made mouthguard that is fabricated from impressions of your teeth that will shift your jaw to hold your airway open in your sleep, preventing lapses in breathing.
