Teen Dental Care
Folsom – Natomas – Sacramento
The mental and physical changes that occur between the ages of 10 and 18, make this one of the more challenging stages of development. This is the key stage in the development of self-image and a healthy smile contributes greatly to a positive one.
Orthodontics | Tongue Piercings | Wisdom Teeth
We are always on the lookout for developing issues with teens and adolescents and can help refer you to a trusted orthodontist. Most orthodontic issues are corrected between the ages of 12 and 14.
As self-image develops, children seek to find a way to differentiate themselves and find an identity. Tongue, lip or mouth piercings can be quite susceptible to infection, given the large amount of bacteria found in the mouth. Should your child express an interest in this practice (or come home with it already done), require them, in a non-judgmental way, to schedule a pediatric dental office visit with us so we can provide information on its risks and how to minimize them.
Wisdom teeth usually erupt during the late teenage years and early 20s. Wisdom teeth become problems because as we evolved our jaws became shorter but we continue to develop these molars. For this reason, wisdom teeth tend to crowd the rest of the mouth and can cause pain, infection and decay. When a wisdom tooth erupts, we’ll monitor its develop and assess the necessity of its removal.
