Tips on How to Maintain a Top-Notch Oral Health as a Teenager

Posted .

Having a top-notch oral health and smile is important in your everyday life, especially as a teenager. If you have a strong oral health and a stunning smile, you can boost your self-esteem and love your appearance. So, to help you have the best smile and oral health possible, our Open Door Family Dentistry dental team encourages you to do the following things:

Keep up on oral hygiene: Oral hygiene is vital for your oral health. So, please remember to brush your teeth twice a day, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth daily. It’s also important to visit Dr. Ryan Bailey every six months for a routine cleaning and exam. All of these tasks can help you have the stunning and healthy smile you deserve.

Think about your wisdom teeth: If you have yet to get your wisdom teeth removed, it’s time to consider doing so. Oftentimes, wisdom teeth cause more harm than good, which is why they need to be extracted more often than not. So, please talk to your dentist about the status of your wisdom teeth when you get the chance.

Consider orthodontic treatment: Having a misaligned smile can be hard on your self-esteem as well as your oral health. This is why it’s important to consider orthodontic treatment. If you align your teeth, you can have the beautiful and healthy smile you deserve.

Avoid tobacco products: Tobacco products are enemies to your smile and overall health, even though they might seem cool. Not only does tobacco increase your chances of falling victim to cancer, but it can also damage your teeth and severely discolor your smile. So, please avoid tobacco products at all costs.
