Should My Teenager Still See a Pediatric Dentist?

While a teen might certainly seem all grown up, their mouth, face, and jaw are still developing and changing quite rapidly, and only pediatric dentists are trained to monitor this and know what to expect. As part of her specialty training, Dr. Mehta worked with countless teens up to 18 years old—she knows that not every child is a toddler and can relate to yours in a way that makes them feel respected and welcome when they come to see her. Dr. Mehta can also discuss safe and effective whitening and cosmetic care, as needed. 

Dental Services for Teens

Regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings are essential for teens so we can make sure their adult teeth are coming in properly, and this also allows us to catch any problems before they become complicated. We can repair cavities with tooth-colored fillings, keep cracked teeth together with metal-free dental crowns, and recommend the best time for your child to begin orthodontics if needed.
