The short answer is yes. We provide full-mouth reconstruction for people with complex dental issues, and we offer Smile Makeovers for people with multiple cosmetic dentistry needs. We can combine techniques from a number of disciplines to address extensive dental issues. For the very few cases that require extremely specialized skills, we’ll arrange a referral to better meet your needs.

Q: Do You Offer Emergency Dental Appointments?

We can almost always see you the same day if you call during business hours; we’re open until 7pm on Monday and Wednesday. For an after-hours emergency, call our Plymouth, MI office at 734-469-5159. Dr. Callow monitors emergency calls and will determine whether you need to be seen immediately.

Absolutely! At Callow Family Dentistry, we offer a wide variety of teeth replacement options including dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants. Dr. Douglas Callow will perform a thorough examination and determine which option is best for your needs. Call today at 734-404-7336 to schedule a consultation.

Q: Q: How Can I Get Whiter Teeth?

The safe and effective teeth whitening products we offer produce much better results than drugstore products. We provide customized whitening trays and the precise strength of whitening agent that will fit your needs. Get a smile up to 8 times whiter!

Q: Q: My Gums Bleed Sometimes. Is That Bad?

Usually, bleeding gums that aren’t due to an obvious cause point to the early stage of gum disease, or gingivitis. A professional dental cleaning, followed by an examination, is usually enough to stop the disease and allow the gums to heal. But bleeding gums may indicate a more serious stage of gum disease, periodontitis. We offer non-surgical gum disease treatment using an ultrasonic scaler which is faster and more comfortable.

Q: Will I Be Comfortable While I’m In Your Practice?

Your comfort is very important to us, and we have a number of options to make your experience while in our practice as comfortable as possible. Advanced technology allows us to perform your treatment faster and more accurately than you may be used to. We’re big on pain-free procedures and can provide dental sedation on request to help you relax. Headphones, blankets, and pillows are also available; just ask! And if you hate feeling rushed, we’re happy to schedule longer appointment times.

Q: Q: Do You Pull Teeth?

Yes, we do. Dr. Callow makes every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, if a tooth is too damaged to save, severely infected, or must be extracted to make room for other dental procedures, he ensures that the experience is pain-free and as comfortable for you as possible.

Q: Q: Do I Need To See A Specialist To Straighten My Teeth?


Q: How Can I Improve My Smile?

We’ve got lots of options for improving your smile, including dental veneers, teeth whitening, teeth contouring, and dental crowns. For a straighter smile we offer Invisalign, a system that uses clear aligner trays instead of metal and wires. We can replace your missing teeth with dental implants, a dental bridge, or dentures. You can even combine treatments for a customized smile makeover! Call our office to schedule a free cosmetic dentistry consultation.

Q: Do You See Young Children?

We see patients of all ages, from toddlers to senior citizens. We offer age-appropriate dental exams, from “happy visits” that help your youngster get to know our dentist to visits for older kids that include dental cleanings, preventive care like dental sealants, and lessons on proper oral hygiene.

Q: Do You Offer Extended Hours?

We stay open until 7 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays to make it easy to schedule your appointments after work or school. We offer Friday and Saturday hours for even more convenience.

Q: Can I Get Dental Sedation?

If you’re uneasy about any dental procedure, we can administer inhaled sedation. It will relax you with a mild euphoria. It’s so safe, we can give it to children. And its effects wear off within minutes, so you should even be able to drive yourself home.

Q: Can You Help Me Stop Grinding My Teeth?

Teeth grinding damages your teeth and has been linked to health problems such as TMJ disorder and migraine headaches. We can fit you for a custom mouthguard that can stop grinding and relieve pain from related conditions. We offer several different kinds of mouthguards, one of which will be right for your particular case.
