Todd E Pillion DDS
I love this dentist. I very much disliked my children's previous dentist. She was very rude and just not good with kids. Dr. Pillion is who I toke my 5 year old daughter to. He and his staff were very friendly and great with my daughter. They explained everything and made sure to answer all of my questions. My daughter had to have surgery to have a tooth capped and some small cavities filled. Dr. Christ is who did the surgery and he was great as well. They kept me updated and did an amazing job. They took us back for surgery within 10 minutes of being there. Another plus is that they are located inside the surgery center so her surgery was done inside the same building. I have taken my kids to several dentist and wasn't satisfied. I would 100% recommend this office to everyone with young children!
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
