Parents know that teen years present unique challenges. When it comes to dental health, rapid changes influence adolescents moving into adulthood. Cavity activity can suddenly accelerate with more independence in food and drink habits. Concurrently, oral hygiene activity sometimes becomes inconsistent. A great partnership between your teen and Dr. Ostler and her staff can help your teen establish good oral habits that will lead to excellent oral health for a lifetime.
Sometimes dental problems follow otherwise healthy people through life. Understanding the cause of dental disease can help you learn how to prevent it. Creating a customized preventive routine can leave you looking forward to the good news at your dental visits.
Metal grins fill the pages of many middle school and high school yearbooks but braces offer benefits at many different stages of life. Just ask Dr. Ostler. She wore metal braces from ages 42-43! Although orthodontic treatment can be done at any age, identifying orthodontic concerns at an early age will allow a dentist or an orthodontist to work with your child’s growth and development to achieve an ideal result which will lead to long term benefits.
The chewing surfaces of the back teeth have pits and grooves that can be difficult to keep clean. Toothbrush bristles often cannot reach into these pits and grooves. A sealant is a bonded material that is applied to the surfaces of back teeth to help prevent food and bacteria from settling in these pits and grooves where they could cause tooth decay (cavities).
