A Head Start on a Beautiful Smile

When kids become preteens, they grow keenly aware of their appearances--and their smiles. This is the perfect time to start nurturing a great smile, especially with help from dentists that offer personalized dental care for preteens.

Let our highly trained orthodontists assess your child’s teeth and create a custom plan for optimal health. The earlier we see your child, the greater the chance of correcting small problems before they become larger. At Magicland, your pediatric dentists and orthodontists are in one convenient location, so it’s easy to discuss your child’s needs.

Preteen Dental Care Recommendations

Exams & Cleanings: For pre-teens, we recommend regular exams and cleanings every six months. X-rays let us detect signs of tooth decay as well as help ensure all permanent teeth are coming in properly. Two major ways to fight decay are making sure your child is getting the right amount of fluoride and sealing your child’s back teeth. Sealants are a quick, painless way to keep out food and decay-causing plaque and acid.

Habits: Proper dental hygiene and regular checkups are essential for healthy smiles. Good habits help protect permanent teeth, which can be very vulnerable to tooth decay. Brushing at least twice a day and flossing once should be encouraged, as preteens are ready for more independence around this age. Brushing and flossing also help discourage bacteria from multiplying below the gum line, which can cause gum disease.

Mouth Guards: If your child plays any sports or outdoor activities like skateboarding, soccer, or gymnastics, a mouth guard can provide important protection. Ask us about the best way to protect your child’s teeth from injury.
