Family Dentistry In Troy, MI

Improving The Oral Health of The Entire Family

Visiting the dentist should be a priority for everyone, regardless of their age. However, finding time to attend multiple appointments can be tricky at best when you have children. One of the best ways to get around this is to choose a family dentist like Dr. Bachuri.

We also understand the family dynamic and will work with you to provide compassionate, flexible service, and ensure that every member of your family can enjoy great oral health and an attractive smile for the duration of their lifetime.

Read on to learn more about how family dentistry can help protect your family from the harmful effects of tooth decay.

What Is Family Dentistry?

The practice of family or general dentistry encompasses an impressive array of services and procedures, all with a common goal: to help you preserve your natural teeth as long as possible, ensure your oral health, and keep you looking and feeling great throughout life.

Being proactive in your oral health can lead to long-term health benefits and, luckily, modern dentistry offers a wide range of services to make sure your teeth stay healthy, function well, and look great.

Poor hygiene can lead to the build-up of unhealthy bacteria around your gums and over the surfaces of your teeth. If left alone, this bacteria can lead to tooth decay which damages the structure and function of your teeth. Tooth decay causes cavities, infection of your tooth roots, and puts you at risk for irreversible damage to your teeth. 

This is why our team at Laser Family Dental takes a proactive approach to your dental care.

Our General Dentistry Services

Pediatric Dental Care

We understand that children are a parent’s absolute priority. You want to feel reassured that their safety and wellbeing are in the safest of hands, including when they’re in the dentist’s chair. However, caring for children’s teeth is very different from adult dental care, both in physiology and in the way that dentists approach their pint-sized patients. 

Not all dentists have a great deal of experience in working with children, but a family dentist does. Our team is trained to answer a child’s questions with honesty and compassion while providing a calming, comfortable dental environment. 

When you choose Dr. Bachuri as your family dentist, you will also benefit from a professional with experience in typical childhood dental issues that a regular dentist may not have. These pediatric issues include retained baby teeth, problems with secondary tooth eruption, and developmental issues caused by pacifier or thumb sucking. Dr. Bachuri is an experienced family dentist who understands these problems and just how to treat them, ensuring that your kid’s oral health will get off to a fantastic start.

Dentistry For Seniors

Our need for proper dental care doesn’t diminish when we reach our senior years. If anything, older patients are more likely to suffer from dental problems and will need to be monitored more closely than younger family members. 

Our professional dental team members have experience in managing visits with the care, respect, and dignity our elder patients deserve. This care can range from helping them access their office in the first place to keeping them calm and comfortable throughout their appointment. 

If they have a disability that requires additional support, your dentist may recommend sedation or a general anesthetic to simplify the dental procedures.
