Dental Care for Teens

family dental servicesThe dental needs of kids change as they grow. During the teenage years, your child's permanent teeth emerge, and their orthodontic needs become more apparent. We focus our services for young adults on monitoring dental development and looking out for any issues that can impair your teen's long-term bite function. If we notice orthodontic problems, our team will refer you to a trusted orthodontist for treatment.

We also provide the necessary education to help teens maintain their optimal oral health. This includes encouraging proper oral hygiene habits and providing dietary advice to promote strong and healthy teeth and gums.

For teens who would like to improve the appearance of their smiles, we can discuss appropriate cosmetic solutions that will result in a beautiful and confident smile. If your teen is experiencing pain in their jaws or teeth, schedule an appointment as soon as possible to alleviate their pain so they can smile again.

We offer comprehensive dental services so you can enjoy a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile. From replacing missing teeth with implant-supported restorations to removing dental imperfections like discoloration, our services for adults and seniors provide the solutions you need. Our goal is to preserve your natural teeth, restore your oral health, and enhance the beauty of your smile.

Our oral care for adults and seniors includes the following services:

The senior members of your family are often more prone to gum disease. It may occur due to certain illnesses like diabetes, medications, and even difficulties maintaining proper oral hygiene. Tooth loss is also a common issue that comes with age. With this in mind, we gear our dental services for seniors towards maintaining gum health and restoring bite function.

Besides gum disease treatment and maintenance cleanings for healthy gums, we offer dentures to replace multiple missing teeth. Denture repairs and realignments are also available whenever necessary.
