Pediatric Dentists

Pediatric Dentists in Belleville, IL

At Smile Team Dental in Belleville, family dentistry includes even the youngest members of the family!

Some parents feel that there is no need for dental care for small children, as the baby teeth are not permanent. This is a misconception. Bringing your child to a pediatric dentist in Belleville can benefit your child’s permanent teeth in the following ways:

Minimizing the chance of tooth decay and gum disease.

Children can get tooth decay from a young age in the same ways that adults can. Children who have a bottle of milk or a soda before bedtime are especially susceptible to this. A kids’ dentist in Belleville can reverse any early signs of decay or disease.

Ensuring that the child’s bite is coming in correctly.

Early detection of emergent pediatric dental issues can minimize or even prevent the need for orthodontia later on.

Improving the child’s eating and speech.

Healthy teeth allow the child to chew properly and speak clearly. Problems with eating or speaking that begin in childhood can carry on to adolescence and even adult life.

Preventing fear of regular dental care.

Visiting the children’s dentist in Belleville helps your child to grow accustomed to regular dental care. This can prevent the intense fear of the dentist that some people unfortunately experience as adults.

The Missouri Dental Board and the ADA do not recognize the treatment of TMJ (neuromuscular dentistry) or cosmetic dentistry as a specialty. Further, the ADA does not require any additional training of dentists who perform or advertise these procedures. Dr. Quigless practices general dentistry in St. Louis, Missouri but he has many continuing education hours in cosmetic and TMJ therapy procedures at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Education.
