While your teen may no longer be a child, their jawbone, mouth, and facial structure are still developing, making a pediatric dentist the perfect specialist to care for them. Dr. Peng’s training was designed to focus on addressing the needs of growing smiles, and before your teenager goes off to college or lives on their own, good dental hygiene habits are a must! Our team at Little Penguin Pediatric Dentistry in Prosper has all of the tools and knowledge necessary to prepare your teen to maintain a healthy smile into adulthood.

Should My Teenager Still See a Pediatric Dentist?

Despite looking all grown up, your teen still requires the specialized attention from a pediatric dentist, as they’re still growing. From jawbone development to the early identification of orthodontic problems like bite misalignment, Dr. Peng is able to guide you and your teen in the right direction to get them the care they need. During these years, another big oral development milestone will be their wisdom teeth growing in, which our team is also able to help with in-house!
