your child's first visit
what to expect
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, your child’s first dental visit should be when their first tooth erupts, or around their first birthday. Bringing your little one in early will ensure that their mouth and gums are healthy and that their oral health is on the right track.
During your first visit at Villa Park Pediatric Dentistry, we will assess your child’s dental health and check their mouth and gums for any issues. We will always take the time to answer any questions you may have, and offer honest guidance and tips to help you develop proper oral care regimens for your child.
gentle solutions for tongue-ties
Studies have shown that an infant with tongue tie issues can have trouble breastfeeding, and can also develop more serious issues if left untreated. An infant frenectomy is a quick, effective treatment that involves one of our dentists using a soft tissue laser to release your child’s lingual, labial, or posterior tie. Not only do frenectomies help babies, but older children with speech impediments or orthodontic issues can see benefits as well. Call us today to learn more about this life-changing procedure.
