Dental Care Can Help Teens Maintain a Healthy, Beautiful Smile
By Steven Kail on November 11, 2016
Professional dental care should be important to patients throughout the various stages of their life. That’s why our dentists at Premier Dental Center strive to create relationships with patients that will last a lifetime. We offer a comprehensive range of dental services that can meet the complete dental needs of our patients, no matter their age. For teens, we focus on maintaining a smile that is both healthy and beautiful.
Teens lead busy lives and may let oral hygiene habits slip, so we know that restorative dentistry treatments to correct oral health problems are important. Just as important are general dentistry treatments to prevent serious dental complications and preserve a smile that teens are happy to show off. Our experienced dentists are proud to offer dental care for teens that will encourage our Jackson, TN patients to create a lifelong habit of making their smile a priority.
General Dentistry for Teens
As patients pass through the different stages of their life, their specific dental needs may change. But one thing that will always stay the same is the importance of a strong foundation of general dentistry services. General dentistry is just as important for teens as it is for young children and older adults.
General dentistry services include a patient’s routine dental exam and cleaning. We encourage patients to schedule these routine appointments once every six months. It is general exams and cleanings that help us monitor the oral health of our patients and prevent serious dental complications from developing. Since teens are often focused on school, sports, and social activities, these routine exams serve as a great reminder that their oral health is important.
Restorative Dentistry for Teens
Teens are some of the busiest people around. With all of the responsibilities (as well as the fun) that teens have to juggle, it’s not surprising that oral hygiene sometimes falls to the wayside. It is pretty common for teens to show signs of minor to moderate dental damage when they come in for a routine exam.
Fortunately, we offer a full range of restorative dentistry treatments. These treatments address dental damage to restore a healthy smile for our patients. In most cases, the damage that we see in our teen patients is not too severe. It is unusual for teens to develop problems more serious than a dental cavity.
While most cavities can be treated with a simple dental filling, we do offer inlays, onlays, and dental crowns for more serious cases of damage. We know that the appearance of the smile is important to our teen patients, so all of these restorations are tooth-colored and will seamlessly blend in with the natural teeth.
Your teen’s smile is important to us. If you would like to help your teen maintain a smile that is strong, healthy, and attractive, the dental services offered at Premier Dental Center are invaluable. To learn more about our full range of dental treatments and how they can benefit your teen, contact us at your earliest convenience.
