Do you want your teen to have a top-notch smile this spring? If so, our dentist, Dr. Brett M. Barney, has the tips you need to help your teen reach that smile goal. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to keep your teen’s teeth and gums in excellent condition while they enjoy the warm weather and participate in outdoor activities. Those things are:
-Bring them into our office: During your teen’s appointment, our dental team will thoroughly clean and examine their smile. If a problem is detected, our dentist can provide the necessary treatment to restore your teen’s oral health and give them the strong and healthy spring smile they deserve.
-Encourage oral hygiene: Your teen needs to be brushing their teeth twice a day, flossing their teeth once a day and rinsing their mouth with mouthwash daily. These things can remove harmful substances from the teeth and gums to prevent dental issues and maintain a top-notch smile.
-Encourage the use of a mouthguard: A mouthguard can protect your teen’s smile while they participate in high-contact sports and activities. In fact, it can help prevent knocked-out and broken teeth as well as damaged gums if they get hit in the face.
