What Are the Benefits of a Family Dentist?

A family dentist is a dental professional who focuses on treating patients of all ages, including kids and seniors. Some of the benefits of being seen in our office include:

Building Dental Hygiene Habits – We can help you reinforce proper dental hygiene habits at home by recommending ways to make brushing and flossing fun for your children. This helps create a foundation of oral health for all your loved ones.

Detecting Common Dental Issues – By understanding dental issues experienced by multiple members of your family, we can help minimize your kids' risk of developing the same dental problems. Our team will search for common underlying factors, such as environment, genetics, and lifestyle, that could cause similar oral health challenges.

Saving You Time – We see your entire family at once, so you won’t have to visit multiple dental offices over the course of a week or month.

Friendly Children's Dental Care

We work hard to keep those fears from taking root by making visits to our office as comfortable and fun as possible. Dr. Ramakrishna and her team will take the time to get to know your kids, give them an office tour, and demonstrate the different dental tools we use. We want them to feel secure enough to ask questions and interact with our team.

During your child's dental visit, our team will perform a cleaning and gently examine their gums, teeth, and jaws. As your child grows, we track their development to catch any potential dental issues before they become long-term dental health problems. This includes referring your child to an orthodontist if needed. From pulpotomies and fillings to fluoride and sealants, we have the services to keep your children's teeth healthy.

Reliable Dental Care for Teens

Some of the most significant oral health changes happen during the teenage years. In the final stages of dental development, we keep a close watch for any orthodontic requirements. We can perform some wisdom tooth extractions in our office, but we will refer you to a trusted local specialist for more complex needs. We also provide sports guards for your active teen and custom occlusal guards for bruxism (teeth grinding).

Being responsible for your own dental health begins during your teenage years, and our dentist will help your teen fully understand the advantages of good oral hygiene. Our team's top priority is to give your teen the support and knowledge they need to achieve long-lasting dental health.

Thorough Dental Care for Adults

Our Ann Arbor family dentist works to help you keep your natural teeth for as long as possible. We encourage you to visit us twice a year for regular dental exams and cleanings. By combining our services with good oral hygiene at home, you can help keep your smile healthy and bright. Some of the services we offer include:

If you want to brighten your smile, we offer both in-office and take-home whitening options. Using the Pola Office whitening system, we apply a specialized solution that allows us to whiten your teeth quickly, right here in our practice. We also offer Opalescence Go™ so you can whiten your teeth from the convenience of your own home.

Comprehensive Dental Care for Seniors

Our office is metal- and amalgam-free, offering only porcelain and composite restorations. 

Ongoing Gum Care and Education

The health of your gums is one of the leading contributors to your overall oral health. Our team focuses on providing you with extensive education on how to keep your gums healthy, and we will work hard to restore your gum health if needed. By providing scaling and root planing services, along with scheduling regular maintenance cleanings, our team can help restore and maintain the health of your gums. If you are suffering from a more advanced case of gum disease, we will partner with a local periodontist to get you the best care possible.
