You have a teenager and you want your teen’s smile to remain as healthy as possible! This is something that can seem challenging at first but, with some helpful advice, that may seem more and more achievable every day. To help you feel better and more prepared in terms of the need for routine dental care changes that may come up, that may seem quite pressing (and to which you’re not quite sure how to respond) our Dallas, TX team is here for you! Remember, if you still need further guidance, just give us a call.
Shifting Your Usual Visit Schedule
Maybe you have been bringing your child in for dental checkups and cleanings for the same two months out of the year for a very long time. However, that little kiddo has suddenly transformed into a teenager and the old schedule isn’t working out as well. It could be due to school, social activities, extracurricular activities, or anything else! Rest assured, if you give us a call, we can help you shift your usual dental checkup and cleaning visits to a different part of the year, to new times, etc., so you aren’t missing out on essential dental care.
Addressing Not-So-Great Teen Brushing
Are you worried about your teenager’s brushing because you really don’t want to see your teen end up with cavities and a need for dental fillings? However, you’re fairly certain that the usual dental hygiene routine just isn’t working so well anymore? You may wish to speak with us about changing from a manual toothbrush to an electric brush! There are many ways this can help. In short, your teen will likely enjoy the experience a lot more, powered brushes can remove a significantly greater amount of plaque for improved protection, and it’s often a nice way to graduate into what your teen may think of as a more adult approach to dental care.
Helping Teens Who Dislike Mint
We know that this may seem simple but it can present quite a problem. If your teenager suddenly dislikes mint (or has finally voiced this feeling), don’t feel at a loss. There’s more out there than just mint toothpaste, mint floss, etc. Take time to explore the drugstore aisle and the internet. You’ll find a shocking amount of flavors that you and your teen can consider, so dental care becomes achievable (and maybe even enjoyable!) again!
