Proud to be a pediatric dentist in Las Vegas
Popular media leads us to believe that Las Vegas is a playground for grownups. That may be true, but our wonderful city is also home to about 118,000 families, 32 percent of whom include children under the age of 18. I believe that the oral health of each generation leads to a stronger community. I’m proud to be a southwest Las Vegas dentist who provides a range of pediatric services.
I am Dr. Christopher Lim, and I’ve been painting beautiful smiles for kids, “tweens,” and teens in southwest Las Vegas since 2005. As a father, I understand that each child’s perspective on dental care is unique. Whether or not their anxieties and questions are voiced openly, sensitivity is vital to set the stage for a lifetime of oral wellness.
The Hillside Dental team genuinely enjoys treating kids. We combine a gentle, caring touch with a sense of humor and a high level of professional excellence. You’ll see it in our:
Preventive dentistry – The best dental problems are the ones that never occur. We introduce your child to proper brushing and flossing techniques and explain the importance of regular check-ups in understandable terms. We offer the option of dental sealants to keep teeth cavity free, and we are always vigilant for alignment problems, early signs of TMJ/TMD, and gum disease.
Children can also suffer from sleep apnea, affecting their long-term wellness and performance in school and sports. I talk with parents about symptoms to watch for, how to achieve an accurate diagnosis, and I explain how a simple dental appliance may help.
Restorative dentistry – Cavities and accidents happen, especially to kids. I utilize the latest techniques to restore decay and damage while preserving maximum tooth structure. My methods include tooth-colored composite resin fillings, gentle root canal therapy, and strong dental crowns.
Cosmetic dentistry – Children care about how they look, too! I can easily beautify a chipped or fractured tooth with natural-colored bonding materials. As your child becomes a teenager, you may want to consider teeth whitening or Invisalign for a straight, even smile.
At Hillside Dental, our goal is to see young patients throughout the southwest Las Vegas area enjoy all the benefits of healthy, gorgeous smiles. Call us today at 702-666-8584 for the convenience of family dentistry infused with cutting-edge innovation.
