Children who have parents that lay the proper foundation for oral health throughout their lives are better equipped to care for their smile into adulthood. Building positive relationships with a dentist is also a great way to ensure children understand the importance of maintaining good oral health. This is why Dr. Christopher Lim and the team of Hillside Dental in Las Vegas, NV encourage parents to bring their children to the dentist at an early age for pediatric dental care.
Our state-of-the-art practice is equipped to handle patients of all ages. We are committed to providing optimum care for children and adults, and help generations of family members in achieving beautiful, healthy smiles. Treatments range from general dentistry solutions to full smile makeovers.
Below is a small sample of the pediatric services offered to children who visit Hillside Dental:
Dental cleanings – even with regular brushing and flossing, the smile needs assistance in getting as clean as possible. Plaque and tartar can have a permanent, negative effect on one’s oral health and wellness, so visiting a dentist for thorough cleanings is the best way to maintain optimal oral health.
Dental examinations – during a visit at Hillside Dental, an examination is performed for children of all ages. In some instances, a series of x-rays may be taken to check the health of the inside portion of the teeth or to evaluate the bone structure underneath the gum line.
Sealants and fluoride – taking additional steps to protect the teeth increases the likelihood of maintaining a healthy smile. Sealants and fluoride offer an extra layer of protection to a child’s smile.
