Helping teens and maintain their teeth
Dental care is important at all stages of your life, but even more so when you’re a child. At Opal Dental, we provide tailored dental services for high school students throughout Auckland.
From perfecting their oral hygiene routine to correcting misaligned bites, high school students have a lot of challenges when it comes to oral health. The Opal Dental team is here to make pre-teen and teenage dental care easier for everyone.
Establishing excellent oral health during the teenage years
By the time your child reaches their teen years, they should already have a well-established oral hygiene routine. However, we know that they sometimes need a little extra help. When you bring your teenager to us for regular dental appointments, we can spot flaws in their routine and give them the assistance they require.
Regular dental checks for teens also allow us to identify small problems before they become significant issues. For example, if we identify gum disease early, we can treat it before it turns into an infection.
A common dental problem amongst high school students is misaligned teeth. Fortunately, an appointment with an orthodontist will guide you towards the best plan for your teen.
Our modern approach to orthodontics means your teenager can access braces that are discreet and comfortable. In addition to traditional braces, clear alignment options are available.
Identifying impacted teeth
Although impacted teeth can appear into adulthood, sometimes they become obvious during your teenage years. Our talented dental team will assess whether your child’s wisdom teeth are likely to become a problem. By removing them early, we can prevent damage to other teeth and reduce the risk of problems such as overcrowding.
Paying for high school dental care
Did you know that high school children are entitled to one free dental check per year? Following their check, your child’s treatment will also be paid for. Making the most of these services gives your child the best start in life when it comes to their oral health.
In addition to free services, we offer a range of private treatment options. By taking a consistent approach to your child’s oral health, you’ll prevent bigger problems later on.
To learn more about the treatments we provide to high school students call 09 834 6359. Alternatively, use our online booking system.
