Every Pre-Teen Deserves A Beautiful, Confident Smile

As children get older, they become much more aware of their overall appearance and their smile. This is an important time for good dental habits. At this age, you may want our highly trained orthodontists to take a look and advise you about braces for your child’s teeth. 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 for them to confer with you and each other about your child’s needs.

Prevention - Proper dental hygiene and regular checkups are key to healthy smiles for pre-teens, and protecting those permanent teeth which can be very vulnerable to tooth decay. Brushing their teeth at least twice a day, and flossing once, is an excellent habit to encourage in pre-teens, who are ready for more independence. Brushing and flossing also help discourage bacteria from multiplying below the gum line, which can cause gum disease.

For pre-teens, we recommend regular exams and cleanings every six months. We may want to x-ray your child’s teeth, which is our best way of finding tooth decay and also making sure 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.

Mouth Guards - For pre-teens who are active in skateboarding, soccer, gymnastics or similar activities, a mouth guard can provide important protection. Ask us about the best way to protect your child’s teeth from injury.

Now is the perfect time to bring out your child’s best smile. If you have any questions about your pre-teen’s dental care, just give us a call. For more on dental care for children visit Did You Know? Call us today to make an appointment.
