Tips For Tackling Teen Tooth Troubles
Having a hard time convincing your teenager to take their dental to-dos seriously?
Here are three things to keep in mind, starting with what issues to look out for.
Sticking to a well-balanced, healthy diet probably doesn’t top most teens’ priority lists. However, what they put on their plate absolutely makes an impact on the state of their oral health. Urge the teens in your life to eat plenty of fruits and veggies and to, of course, limit their consumption of sugary drinks, like soda.
Consistency is key! Do what you can to encourage teens to floss and brush their teeth—and properly!—for two minutes, twice a day, without fail.
Ill-Informed Product Purchases
Social media influencers are front and centre online these days and a fair few are padding their bank accounts by “promoting” questionable products. Talk to your children about sticking to oral care picks that have earned the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance.
