Adolescent teeth require special treatment
Appearance and self-image are very important to adolescents. Decayed or poorly positioned teeth or jaws might make them more self-conscious. Teens also eat frequently, and unhealthy snack foods tend to become a major part of their regular diet. We provide a professional, sensitive, and caring approach to restoring and guiding teeth, and teaching preventive dental health care through the teen’s high school years.
Treatment of the adolescent patient can be multi-faceted and complex
Accurate, comprehensive, and up-to-date medical, dental, and social histories are necessary for correct diagnosis and effective treatment planning. Familiarity with the patient’s medical history is essential for decreasing the risk of aggravating a medical condition while rendering dental care. The dental practitioner needs to assure the adolescent patient of trust and confidentiality in certain situations.
