Teen dentistry addresses a very important stage of your child’s life and development. The habits they have been practicing at home for years are finally beginning to show results, whether good or bad. As a teenager, they likely care a little bit more about keeping their smile healthy and they probably also have a better understanding of what exactly that entails.
Just because your child has finally come around to good dental health habits, it doesn’t mean they can skip their professional cleanings or office visits. In fact, as their habits and dental health are now being cemented during this formative time of their life, it’s still vitally important that they are showing up for their six-month check-ups consistently.
At your teen’s visit, Dr. Perlmutter will focus on evaluating the following:
- Sealants on Molars
- Evaluation of Wisdom Teeth
- Good Eating Habits
- Proper Review of Hygiene Care
- Athletic Mouthguard
