Bright Smiles for Bright Futures

Do you remember being a teenager? The absolute last thing on your mind was probably your oral health, and that’s still the case for teens today. Thankfully, the team at Brazos Kids Dental understands that every child isn’t a four-year-old toddler, so we’re able to adjust our approach to better suit older children. We’ll make sure they build habits that will serve them for the rest of their lives while making sure potential issues are fixed right away.

Should My Teenager Still See a Pediatric Dentist?

While teens certainly look more grown up compared to toddlers and school-aged children, their teeth, face, and jaw are still changing rapidly. This means they can still benefit from the expertise of a pediatric dentist who is specially trained to monitor these shifts. Our team will be able to supervise important changes to ensure your child’s smile is on the right path, plus we can provide treatments in a way that won’t interfere with their natural development.

Dental Services for Teens

On top of using twice-a-year checkups and cleanings to maintain your teen’s baseline oral health, we’ll also work to proactively treat any problems that might pop up. Cavities and chipped/broken teeth can be repaired right away with dental crowns and tooth-colored fillings, and we can also provide mouthguards for young athletes as well as teens who grind their teeth while they sleep. If your child isn’t exactly a fan of the dentist, we can use sedation dentistry to calm their nerves so they stay cool in the chair at all times.
