Teenagers continue to develop throughout their adolescence. Even if their baby teeth have all fallen out and been replaced by permanent teeth, their jaw and face are constantly growing and changing. Dentists are aware of this and have received particular training to monitor development and changes. As a result, many pediatric patients see their dentist until they are between the ages of 18 and 22, when their mouth has stopped growing and maturing.
Because of your teen’s continuing development, their jaw growth may not keep up with permanent teeth, causing crowding and impaction difficulties. As your child’s permanent teeth emerge, a dentist will do an assessment that will address very specific issues. When a dentist sees a teenager, he or she will look for tooth crowding, chewing, and tooth impaction. You may take your child to The Smile World for all of their dental procedures and advanced treatments.
Wisdom teeth, the third pair of molars at the rear of the mouth, usually appear in the late teens and early twenties. This can frequently result in discomfort, crowding, or even tooth decay. Because this region is difficult to keep clean, it is a breeding ground for germs, which can lead to cavities and gum disease. Dentists can assist in detecting abnormalities or complications that may arise as wisdom teeth begin to emerge.
The teenage years might be difficult, but ultimately, your children are learning to care for themselves and lead productive, independent lives. We can help them acquire the capacity to make appropriate food choices, learn how to address their dental requirements more independently, and prepare them for the future.
