Dr. Aiello loves kids – in fact, he is a father himself! Our family dental practice sees children of all ages, so there is no need to drive all over Clinton Township, Sterling Heights or Macomb Township looking for a pediatric dentist. In most cases, all of your child’s dental needs can be managed in our convenient family practice.
Your child’s comfort is our top priority, and Dr. Aiello spends a lot of time ensuring that children feel at ease in the dental chair, which sets them up for success in their future visits to the dentist.
We know that parents are our best partners when it comes to monitoring and caring for their child’s oral health, so Dr. Aiello also takes the time to work closely with parents to educate them about their child’s oral development, nutrition, and brushing techniques.
Some of our pediatric dental services include:
Teeth Cleanings and Exams
Routine check-ups help us monitor your child’s smile so that they can avoid complications later on. Most children benefit from dental check-ups every six months.
We begin cleaning your little one’s teeth as soon as they feel comfortable with the procedure. This process helps to remove the excess plaque and bacteria that cause issues like tooth decay and cavities. It is our top priority that your child feels completely relaxed in the dental chair, so we will never proceed with any procedure until they are ready.
High definition digital x-rays allow us to monitor your child’s oral and tooth development and eruption pattern, and to screen for cavities. This gives us the advantage of detecting decay in its earliest stages, so children don’t have to endure complex dental procedures to restore their teeth and maintain their oral health.
Professional fluoride treatments encourage strong tooth development and help your child avoid cavities later on. Applying fluoride is a quick procedure that can be combined with your little one’s routine six-month cleanings.
Dental sealants guard teeth against tooth decay by placing protective coatings over the deep pits and grooves of back molars. We notice fewer cavities in children with sealants as opposed to those without.
