Children and Orthodontics

If your kids have a set of crooked teeth, crossbites, or protruding front teeth correcting it with orthodontics treatment as early as ages 6 or 7 while the teeth are still developing and the jaw is still growing can help save their beautiful smile. Orthodontics can straighten out crooked teeth making brushing and flossing easier among the little ones. Keep teeth and gums healthy as orthodontics help remove oral debris before it turns into plaque.

Children’s Dental ServicesSince children have different reactions to the procedure, making them comfortable is our utmost priority. Some children may resist as they come to the visit and receive care but we at Eagle Harbor Dental are always patient and compassionate to help take their worries away!

Helping Kids Overcome Fear of Dentists

If your little one needs to have dental work but he seems terrified and uncomfortable, we are well-versed in the fine art of making children comfortable and keeping them entertained. Effective visits can be achieved once children are in their comfortable state. We have televisions in the ceilings to keep kids entertained while we focus on their teeth. 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. helping to establish trust and mitigate their worries.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I bring my child in for braces?

We recommend considering orthodontics for your child at around 7 years old. However, this depends on the severity fo the misalignment on your child’s teeth.

Does my child still need dental checkups every six months if they have braces?

Yes, it actually becomes even more important for your child to come every six months for us to ensure that the alignment is occurring correctly. Also, braces cause hard-to-reach areas that may lead to a higher chance of cavities and other diseases.

Will my child still be able to play a musical instrument or sport with braces?

Yes, your child won’t have to quit their favorite activities because of their braces. Playing an instrument may take some adjustments and getting used to, but they’ll be back to normal in no time.

Does my child really need braces or will their teeth straighten as they grow?

Research shows that teeth typically get worse and more misaligned as they grow out, so it’s vital that you get your child’s teeth aligned correctly as soon as possible.
