Kids Dentistry

Treating the patient, not just the tooth.

Kids Dentistry

Treating the patient,
not just the tooth.

What do you think of when you hear the word “dentist”?

Cavities and fillings are probably top of mind. As a parent you may notice a cavity in your child’s smile, bring them to the dentist for a filling and months later, see more cavities pop up - enter a frustrating cycle for all parties! BUT it doesn’t have to be this way...

Children’s dentistry can be preventative and minimally invasive to the teeth, gums, and patient! At South Hill Dental, we are a family practice with a focus on children of all ages. We break with tradition by using less invasive techniques and treatments - managing tooth decay with fewer drills, needles, and less need for sedation or general anaesthesia. There is an open invitation for parents to be involved with the diagnosis and treatment of their child’s oral health, including emphasis and education on home care, brushing, and nutrition. By treating the underlying cause of cavities in a non-threatening environment, we give children a more positive experience and more confidence in their smiles!

Early Childhood Caries

Early Childhood Caries

The most common chronic disease in children today is tooth decay (cavities or caries). Frequent consumption of sugary and acidic beverages, easily accessible snacks, and infrequent or delayed trips to the dentist have contributed to ⅓ of all surgeries performed on preschoolers between ages 1 to 5. The good news is it is preventable and treatable!
