Q: What If I’m Worried About My Dental Visit??

A. If you have dental anxiety, you might find it hard to come to our Norton Shores, MI dental office. Sometimes, the fear and worry are just too much. That’s why our dentists offer sedation dentistry. Inhalation sedation, oral conscious sedation, IV sedation, and general anesthesia are available depending on your anxiety and the dental treatments you need. Don’t let dental anxiety prevent you from getting the dental care you deserve.

Q: What Is TruDenta??

A. Most dentists can treat migraines and headaches due to TMJ/TMD. However, not many dentists have the TruDenta system like ours do at our Norton Shores, MI dental office. TruDenta utilizes specialized diagnostic tests to locate where your pain originates from. Then our dentists can create a unique treatment plan just for you including ultrasound, trigger point therapy, and even a low-level dental laser.

Q: How Old Should My Child Be For The First Dental Visit??

A. As a rule, you should bring your child to our Norton Shores, MI dental office just around their first birthday. That’s because tooth decay and gum disease do not wait until permanent teeth come in. Plus, it’s so important to establish the dentist’s office as a safe place early on. Doing so can set the stage for many years of regular dental exams and dental cleanings like everyone should have.
