What We Offer
Our Children’s Dental Services
In your child’s first appointment, we’ll make sure they’re calm and teach them what they need to know for a lifetime of good dental habits.
We’ll carefully examine your child’s teeth to check for any cavities, gum problems, or oral diseases.
Cleaning your child’s teeth is a standard part of every appointment to help prevent cavities and other oral health problems.
When necessary, we’ll take x-rays of your child’s teeth and interpret the results to evaluate your child’s oral health.
We’ll keep an eye on your child’s teeth and jaw as they grow and develop to predict any problems that may arise.
We’ll help to teach your child good oral health habits to set an early foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
Create Treatment Plans
If your child has cavities, gum disease, misaligned teeth, or another oral health problem, we’ll formulate a treatment plan.
If your child’s teeth need to be straightened, we’ll create a plan with you for orthodontal teeth correction with braces.
Sedation and Anesthesia
Some procedures require sedation or anesthesia, which we can perform on your child as needed.
Emergency Dental Treatment
Whether it’s a toothache or a chipped tooth, we offer emergency services to quickly treat any urgent dental issues your child may have.
We Understand Children
Children Need Special Care
Kids aren’t just little adults, which is why dentists need a different approach. Dr. Standish understands the needs of children – he’s spent years raising daughters, coaching soccer, and of course, treating children here at his Fleming Island dental office. The team at Eagle Harbor Dental is dedicated to providing quality care and making sure that your child will grow up without fear of going to the dentist, setting the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health habits.
Making Children Comfortable
Frankly, you can’t provide top-quality dental care to a nervous, skittish, or terrified kid. When children are uncomfortable, they’ll fight tooth and nail (pun intended) when they hear the dreaded word “dentist.” As you can guess, this doesn’t make for a pleasant or effective visit. We’re well-versed in the fine art of making children comfortable and keeping them entertained. When all else fails, we’ve got TVs in the ceilings to entertain them while we work.
We focus on treating all our little ones with patience and compassion, helping to establish trust and mitigate their worries. In extreme cases, we can administer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, so that they can still receive the oral care they need without the extra stress.
Meeting children’s dental needs
Since children’s mouths are still developing, they have specific needs. We provide preventative care and regular services like fillings, but we also know what to look for when it comes to the development and structure issues that necessitate orthodontics.
In many cases, correcting orthodontic conditions early can save on treatment later and ensure that your child’s smile stays healthy and beautiful.
We’re also diligent in inspecting wisdom teeth and making any needed recommendations for treatment, which we can also provide in the office. While wisdom teeth get a bad rap, they don’t always have to be removed. If we recommend removal, we’ll run you and your teenager through the options. If we think they don’t need to be removed, we can help keep wisdom teeth healthy and problem-free.
Building good habits for life
Developing good daily oral care habits like brushing and flossing will inevitably have a huge impact on your child’s development. That’s why we place utmost importance on helping to educate children – and parents – on proper daily care routines. This way, they’re set up for a lifetime of pearly whites, confident smiles, and as little time in a dentist’s chair as possible. We’d say that’s a success for everyone.
How it works
Book an Appointment
Come by for a visit to see if we’re the right fit for you and your child.
The First Appointment
We recommend booking your child’s first appointment either when their first tooth comes in or by their first birthday. We’ll discuss with you what will happen in each appointment and what you should be doing to keep your child’s teeth healthy and clean at home. It’s important to build healthy habits from the beginning to protect your child’s future oral health.
Just like adults, children need dental checkups at least every six months. We may recommend more frequent visits if there’s a problem that needs to be addressed.
Sometimes, if your child has a toothache or if an accident happened and they’ve chipped a tooth, an emergency appointment is needed. Don’t wait for the next scheduled checkup to bring them in. Some problems need to be addressed right away.
Building Lifetime Habits
It’s essential to start early with your child’s oral health. The earlier they’re used to visiting the dentist and the earlier you start to teach them to brush and floss, the better. It’s our job and the parents’ job to reinforce these good habits from a young age so children develop good habits that will last them a lifetime.
