Dentistry for Teens
Meet Your Adult Smile
Now that you have a teen, your child’s teeth are there to last them the rest of their life. If issues like athletic injuries, nail biting habits, or even poor oral hygiene habits pop up, it can affect their smile well into the future.
At Dental Kidz Club we believe in equipping our teenage patients with preventative care strategies, hygiene and nutritional education, and early intervention to reduce the risk of major dental problems in the future. Some of the techniques we incorporate include:
- Routine Cleanings
- Natural Colored Fillings
- Nutritional Counseling
- Oral Hygiene Instruction
Can Teens Whiten Their Teeth?
The teen years tend to be one of the first times that issues such as tooth discoloration become an issue, especially if your child has naturally darker teeth. Fortunately, most over the counter whitening products are safe for teens to use. That being said, it’s important for our dentists to first screen them for cavities, gum infections, and any situations that may warrant against the use of a teeth whitening product (such as anterior restorations.)
Schedule Every Six Months
The busy teen years can be hard for your son or daughter to keep their teeth clean and healthy. Schedule a checkup every six months to help them enjoy a bright, healthy smile.
