October is National Orthodontic Health Month. To celebrate, Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontic Specialists of Michigan offers dental sealants at a 50% discount and provides complimentary orthodontic evaluations throughout the month.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic evaluation for all children by age 7. Your child’s teeth and jaw development would have progressed enough by that time for your orthodontist to notice any developmental abnormalities of the teeth and jaws.
Dr. Ari Thanasas, one of our orthodontic partners, says, “The earlier we detect the problem, the better. A lot of kids are actually in great shape and do not require anything other than monitoring for proper loss of baby teeth and eruption of adult teeth. We are hoping most of the children we see are in this category but many problems are hiding under the gums or maybe a baby tooth is lost too early. Catching these kinds of problems early can prevent more major problems down the road. This is why our goal is to screen every 7 year old.”
Dr. AJ Ker, our other orthodontic partner, agrees with Dr. Ari. “This evaluation could save your child a lot of time and discomfort down the line. If treatment is necessary for any eruption or bite problems, we have the ability to educate patients and parents regarding the long term benefits of intervention with the interest of avoiding future permanent tooth extraction, ectopic or abnormal eruption, and jaw or facial asymmetries.”
If you or your child hasn’t seen Dr. Ari or Dr. AJ yet, this is the perfect opportunity. Orthodontic treatment with one of our board certified specialists is personal, affordable, and highly rewarding. We look forward to arriving in our office every day to help build beautiful, healthy smiles and growing confidence in our patients as we remove risks of further dental and periodontal problems.

And don’t forget – our orthodontic evaluations aren’t just for kids. We love seeing adults, too!
Dental Sealants at 50% off
Sealants represent a major preventive measure to help maintain healthy teeth. Seal out tooth decay before they happen by allowing our dental team to place a thin, protective layer over deep crevices in posterior teeth where cavities form as toothbrush bristles struggle to reach.
Our kind and experienced team would be glad to help schedule your next appointment. Give a call today at 586-286-0700 to take advantage of these National Orthodontic Health Month promotions.
