Why is it important for kids to see a dentist?

If you want your children to have healthy dental care for their entire lives, you should start bringing them to the dentist as soon as possible. According to the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics, every child should get a dental checkup by age 1, or as soon as their first tooth comes in.

Optimal oral health for your kids starts with you. To get them started, take your kids to see one of Eagle River Dental’s family dentists. They know how important it is for your child to feel safe and comfortable and works hard to provide a friendly atmosphere.

The toys and TVs in Eagle River Dental’s waiting room will keep your child entertained before their appointment. The warmth and kindness of the entire team, which so many other patients have come to know well, will take away the anxiety your child might have about going to the dentist and help encourage great dental-health habits for years to come.

Why is it important to see an orthodontist at a young age?

An orthodontist can improve your bite by remedying a misaligned jaw and straightening crooked teeth. It’s critical to take care of orthodontic concerns during childhood and adolescence years to avoid problems later in life.

For the best results, it’s important to see an orthodontist before your child’s face and jaw finish growing.

In addition to general family dentistry, Eagle River Dental offers orthodontic services to correct any problems with your child’s or teenager’s teeth. For added convenience, the practice has office hours into the early evening, so your child doesn’t need to miss school for dental or orthodontic appointments.
