Okay, so we won’t pretend that dental care is cool, at least not in the sense that your typical teenager would find it cool. At our cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry practice, Southwind Dental Care, we happen to find dental care extremely cool, but we understand that the average teen is more interested in having a great smile than in the processes behind achieving that great smile. Still, in order to maintain good oral health for a lifetime, it is important that patients establish good relationships with dentists at a young age. In other words, cool or not, the time for your teen to start seeing the dentist twice a year as recommended by the American Dental Association - if he or she isn’t doing so already - is right now.
Now, while we may not be able to convince your teen that dentistry is cool, Dr. Timothy S. Messer and his team are trained to deal with the special needs of patients of all ages. Dr. Messer knows that teenagers want to be treated with respect, just as any adult would; that they want to be listened to, not treated with a condescending attitude. Your teen’s dental experience now will shape how he or she views dentistry as an adult. By making that experience a positive one, you will help to ensure that he or she enjoys a healthy, beautiful smile for the rest of his or her life.
We are proud to offer superior dental care for teens at our Memphis, TN cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry practice. We would be more than pleased to welcome you and your family to Southwind Dental Care. Simply contact us today, and we’ll take care of the rest.
For the most part, teens undergo many of the same dental procedures as adults. They receive the same oral exams and professional cleanings; if cavities are detected, they receive aesthetically pleasing tooth-colored fillings, ceramic inlays or onlays, or custom-crafted dental crowns to restore the tooth. However, there are also dental treatments that are particularly popular among teens. These include:
