Call Drs. James and Samuel Owens if your child has or develops unusually-shaped teeth. A malformed tooth like a peg or cone-shaped tooth may indicate that your child has a medical condition that should be addressed. If the peg-shaped tooth is a permanent tooth and develops a cavity or other problem, or if you wish to explore options for improving the appearance of the tooth we can also help.
It may not be a surprise that some teens aren't big brushers. After all, they are too busy taking that perfect selfie. Parents are often urged to choose their battles during these years, and while that's good advice, oral hygiene is a battle worth fighting. Poor brushing habits can lead to cavities, yellowing, gum disease and eventually loss of precious teeth.
Whether your child chips a tooth eating candy, knocks a tooth out playing hockey or breaks a tooth during a fall, it can be a scary experience for parents. Drs. James and Samuel Owens can assess your child’s dental emergency and execute the proper follow-up care. Call us at 918.455.7700 in case of an emergency.
