The Waterford Dentist is a comprehensive dental practice offering a wide range of services. Dr. Heuerman, Dr. Ratz, and their team perform everything under one roof from routine cleaning and checkups to advanced dental implant surgery. Our general dentists are experienced and trained on all dental procedures. They also specialize in orthodontics, cosmetic treatments, dental restorations and sedation dentistry.
Your Waterford family dentist offer teeth cleaning, checkups, exams and home care instruction to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. During a routine appointment, you can expect your teeth to be cleaned by our friendly hygienists and examined by your dentist. Depending on how recently you've had them taken, X-rays and additional tests may also be done. Parents may receive instruction on how to care for their baby's teeth, and young children may be shown how to brush or floss properly.
For patients who need extra protection during the cavity-prone years, your dentist may recommend frequent visits to the clinic (more than twice a year) for cleanings and checkups. Dr. Heuerman may also recommend fluoride treatment and sealants to protect vulnerable teeth.
Oral Cancer Screenings
With every adult dental cleaning appointment, we will complete an oral cancer screening using Microlux. We will ask you to use a special mouth rinse, and then we will take a look at all of the soft tissues of your mouth, including your cheeks, tongue, and lips. The rinse and light combination allows us to see the beginnings of oral cancer so that you can receive treatment as quickly as possible!
To make your visit as relaxed, pain-free and comfortable as possible, Dr. Heuerman offers dental sedation. Sedation is the use of medication to relieve anxiety and fear during treatment. If anyone in your family is scared of the dentist, oral sedation is an excellent way to stay relaxed or snooze through the procedure.
Your dentists in Clarkston provide white fillings, root canal therapy, and crowns to treat decayed or severely damaged teeth. We also offer dental implants and cosmetic services like teeth whitening and veneers to enhance your smile. We can even repair the smallest teeth of your little ones, should they need some extra care!
