Oral hygiene for teenagers is the best way for teenager to keep a bright healthy smile. They should continue the great oral hygiene habits begin in early childhood. Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is very important for overall health at any age. Teenager’s care a lot about their appearance so help your teen understand that bad oral hygiene can lead to bad breath, stains, missing teeth and a lot of other dental problems. Whether or not you wear braces or other orthodontic treatment that’s very important is brushing and flossing your teeth daily.

 

Teenagers can be tough on their teeth. They may be so busy with school, jobs, sports and social activities that they don’t find time to brush. They also tend to eat a lot of junk food. Combine the two and you’ve got a situation ripe for tooth decay. Not surprisingly, many teenagers develop a lot of cavities.

 

Here are a few tips to help your child get through the teen years cavity-free:

  • Encourage your teenager to take good care of his or her teeth. This means brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily. Teenagers care a lot about how they look. Help your teen understand that bad oral hygiene can lead to stains, bad breath, missing teeth and many other dental problems.
  • Set a good example. If you take good care of your teeth, your teenager will see that good oral hygiene is important to you. Your talks and warnings will not seem hypocritical and will carry greater weight.
