Your smile can play a key role in your self-esteem and self-confidence, especially as a teenager. This is why it’s important to keep your smile in tip-top shape as much as possible. If you do so, there is a high chance you can achieve the smile of your dreams.

To help you keep your teen smile in tip-top shape, our Barron Dentistry dental team encourages you to do the following things:

Keep up on oral hygiene: Because oral hygiene is vital for your oral health, you need to remember to brush your teeth twice a day, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth daily. It’s also extremely important to visit Dr. Barron every six months for a professional dental cleaning and dental exam. Brushing, flossing, rinsing, and visiting your dentist are all tasks that can give you the strong and healthy smile you’re looking for.

Think about your wisdom teeth: Unfortunately, wisdom teeth cause more harm than good. This is why it’s important to get them removed if necessary. So, if you still have your wisdom teeth, it’s important to talk to your dentist and discuss the status of your teeth and see if wisdom tooth removal is your best option.

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 can harm your smile and overall health more than you might realize, even though they might seem cool. They can increase your chances of having cancer and they can also severely damage and discolor your teeth. So, please avoid tobacco products at all costs.

If you do these things, you’ll be on your way toward the pristine oral health and smile you deserve!
