Children's Dentistry

One of the most important things you can do for your health is to have your teeth examined and professionally cleaned at least every 6 months. Your teeth serve you in so many ways - communicating by smiling and speaking, aiding in nutrition by chewing, contouring your face and supporting your airway. We can help you keep your teeth for life by checking for decay, bone height, abnormalities, plaque and so much more!

Our hygienist will remove any accumulated tartar or calculus, thereby preventing or minimizing the inflammation of gum tissue and potential loss of jaw bone that can result when these hard deposits are left on your teeth for long periods of time. Experience the peace of mind that comes from a healthy check-up. Experience the satiny feel of freshly polished enamel and the confidence of fresh breath!

At DentalVille, we recommend that you bring your child to the dentist at the emergence of their first teeth.

Bring your child with you for your appointment and we can show you how to keep your child's teeth clean and give you tips on diet and how to prevent baby bottle syndrome (rampant decay that may result when a child goes to sleep with a bottle of liquid in their mouth containing natural milk or juice sugars). We take a very patient and friendly approach to young children taking care to "count" their teeth while engaging your child. This is an excellent opportunity to note any concerns regarding facial or dental development. Your little one can ride in the chair and try out the air and water sprayer.

Our goal is to develop positive attitudes and a friendly atmosphere at DentalVille so that all members of your family enjoy happy, healthy smiles!

Your child will develop 2 sets of teeth - primary and permanent. Why are primary teeth so important?

It is important to monitor and care for primary teeth because they are important for:

learning to speak
jaw and facial development

Baby teeth are also important placeholders and eruption guides for permanent teeth. While our philosophy of care is preventive, we will take a proactive approach to informing you about your child's developing dentition and recommending conservative treatment where necessary to ensure the future development of a healthy smile that will serve your child for life.
