Dental Tips for Teens
Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. That’s why it’s important to take care of your teeth. Remember cavities aren’t just for kids! Here are some helpful tips that teens should keep in mind. Always brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste for at least two minutes. Floss between your teeth daily. Avoid sugary and starchy snacks. Wear a mouth guard when you are active in sports. Do not use tobacco products. You will never have to worry about quitting, if you never start. Don’t pierce your lips or tongue; the metal could cause complications with your teeth. If you are unhappy with your smile or think you need braces, talk to your parents and dentist. It’s very important that you see your dentist on a regular basis. Keep your smile healthy for a lifetime.
