At all ages, it is essential to maintain good dental hygiene. Practicing good dental care helps to keep away oral diseases. By the age of adolescence, most people have all their adult teeth except wisdom teeth. Looking after the teeth from the teenage can help retain them in their natural form.

At Winning Smiles Dentistry, the dentist provides extensive care to teenagers to avoid dental diseases like cavities. 

Tips for teens to maintain Good Dental Health

  • Brush the teeth twice a day and floss the teeth every day to remove food particles stuck in between the teeth. It helps to reduce the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth.
  • Try to maintain good dietary habits. Having fruits and vegetables can help in cleaning plaque off the teeth. Reduce the consumption of sugary food and beverages as it has adverse effects on the teeth. Avoid brushing the teeth immediately after consuming acidic and sugary food as it can cause harm to the teeth' enamel. 
  • Visit the dentist twice a year to receive a routine dental checkup. The dentist detects signs and symptoms of diseases and provides immediate treatment to resolve the dental problem. They also perform dental cleaning and fluoride treatment for teens on necessity. 
  • Use a mouthwash prescribed by the dentist. It helps to cleanse the mouth by removing the buildup of bacteria. 
  • Include fluoride toothpaste for brushing the teeth. It helps to remineralize the tooth enamel and prevents cavities and tooth decay.  

​Visit the Dentist

Teenagers are curious about trying out things in life. It is vital to impart more knowledge regarding the consumption of alcohol and tobacco to them. Parents and dentists should make sure that children are aware of what can cause harm to their dental health. 

If you experience dental abnormalities, visit the dentist at the earliest. It helps to avoid further complications that may lead to tooth loss. The dentist provides instructions that can help them maintain healthy teeth throughout their life. Prevention is better than dental treatments that may take a more extended period of time to show the effect on the teeth.
