Dental health tips for teens

  • This is the ideal age for your dentist to check if the position of your teeth is correct and if treatment is necessary to create a more attractive appearance.
  • Always use a fluoride toothpaste and brush your teeth at least twice a day. Fluoride strengthens
    resistance to decay and encourages repair of the enamel damaged by the acid attack of the decay process.
  • Use dental floss daily to remove harmful plaque from between your teeth. Regular brushing with a soft brush and flossing will prevent gum disease, which can lead to loss of teeth.
  • To protect you against sporting injuries, have your dentist make you a custom-made mouthguard. These are much more effective and comfortable than mouthguards off-the-shelf.
  • Ask your dentist how often you need a check-up. Measures to prevent dental disease include the
    application of fluoride and/or the sealing of small pits in the enamel which are likely spots for decay.
