As your child reaches their teen years, their dental needs may increase. From cavities to mouthguards, there are several ways our team can help your teen preserve and protect their smile. If you are in need of teen dentistry in the Tuscaloosa, AL area, we invite you to experience dentistry with us!
Why Teen Dentistry is Important
For teens, much of their dental development is happening throughout their teenage years. Consistent dental check-ups are key during the teen years to preserve natural teeth and avoid big dental problems. As their permanent teeth finish erupting, orthodontic care can begin if desired. By faithfully scheduling their dental visits, you can help boost their confidence and give them the tools they need to maintain a healthy smile for life!
When your teen has a cavity, a dental filling can preserve and protect their natural tooth. Our fillings are metal-free and blend in naturally. Fillings are a fast and effective treatment that is made to be durable and last for many years.
If your teen is involved in contact sports, a sports mouthguard is one of the most important things they can wear while they play. A sports injury can be detrimental to your teen’s smile, causing permanent damage. Our team can provide a sports mouthguard that is designed to fit comfortably and securely, ensuring the protection of their teeth as they stay active!
Mouthguards for Teeth Grinding
Teeth grinding can cause much damage over time. If your teen is suffering from teeth grinding at night or during the day, a mouthguard can protect their smile. Constant grinding can lead to damaged teeth, sensitivity and even loose teeth. A mouthguard could save your teen’s teeth from unnecessary damage and give them the protection they need to preserve their smile.
Halitosis (bad breath) is very common and can be caused by a variety of reasons including a tooth infection, poor oral hygiene or dry mouth. Your teen doesn’t have to suffer from bad breath. Our team can evaluate their smile, discuss their options and provide the best solutions for treating halitosis!
