Setting the Foundation for Lifelong Oral Health with Pediatric Dentistry

The team at JSP Dental in Trenton, Michigan, believes that children’s dental appointments should be fun, light-hearted, and nothing to fear. Children aren’t born with fear of the dentist, but they can fear the unknown. How your little one is exposed to dental care lays the groundwork for how they’ll view dentistry for the rest of their lives. 

Two kids smiling

Our team loves caring for young smiles and ensures every child is spoken to and treated gently as if they were our own. We always want to create positive experiences for children to ensure they love dentistry from a tender age. 

Our pediatric dental care services

While baby teeth eventually pave the way to adult teeth, providing top-notch dental care for these transitional teeth is crucial. Nurturing your child’s oral health is a collaborative endeavor, comprising your efforts at home through regular brushing and flossing. The second part is what we do at our office with the services below.

  • Routine exams and cleanings: Like adults, children must routinely visit a dentist to keep their oral health in check. Our team monitors your child’s oral development during routine exams to ensure it’s progressing as expected. Furthermore, dental check-ups help us inspect your child’s mouth for signs of cavities, misalignments, and gum disease. Our team also offers gentle dental cleanings to eliminate troublesome plaque and tartar from hard-to-access areas in the mouth.
  • Dental sealants: Children aren’t thorough with oral hygiene because they are still learning the best techniques to brush and floss teeth. As you’d expect, poor oral hygiene puts children at risk of dental decay and cavities. When you factor in genetic predisposition and naturally thinner enamel, children are inherently prone to cavities. We offer dental sealants to “fill in” deep grooves in the decay-prone posterior teeth. Teeth sealants seal out acids and harmful bacteria to keep teeth decay-free. 
  • Orthodontics: We offer orthodontic evaluation and braces to ensure your child maintains a straight smile for better aesthetics and improved oral health.
  • Tailored education: We use age-appropriate language to educate young patients about proper oral hygiene practices, emphasizing the importance of regular brushing, flossing, and a healthy diet.
