Continuing good oral habits established during childhood will help teenagers maintain healthy teeth. Daily plaque build-up should be removed with regular brushing and flossing. Regular dental check-ups and cleans with your family dentist are recommended so that tartar can be removed, thus limiting the risk of tooth decay.
Dental Concerns for Teenagers
If you wear braces, take extra care to clean your teeth properly.
Mouthguards can be worn to protect your teeth during sports.
Choose nutritious snacks, as sugars and starches in many foods and drinks cause plaque to form on teeth.
