13+ Years Old

At the age of 12 and up children typically have all of their permanent teeth present. Maintaining proper oral health and developing great habits is extremely important during this age range as we don’t get a second chance with permanent teeth. It is crucial to brush twice daily, floss once daily and maintain their 6-month checkups at a pediatric dental office.

At each visit we will evaluate the positioning of the permanent teeth, and ongoing jaw development. By closely monitoring the eruption of permanent teeth we can determine if there is a need for early orthodontic treatment, or if they the teeth are developing in a healthy manner.

Because our office isn’t overly childishly themed, patients often will want to stay in our office during their teen and even college age years prior to transitioning to an adult dentist. We really enjoy catching up with our older patients and are happy to keep them in the office until their first career, or until they have adult dental needs that are best addressed by an adult dentist.

Contact us today at (661) 215-6655 to arrange an appointment with the professionals at SCV Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics.
