As you age, your teeth will start to form their permanent positions. You may find yourself in braces to straighten out a misaligned bite. In the meantime, your peers may pressure you to look your best and you may feel self-conscious about your smile. Fortunately, there are always remedies and treatments available. Here are some tips for tackling oral health issues you may face:

– If you play contact sports or are involved in similar high-risk activities, remember to use the right safety gear and equipment.
-Cigarettes, marijuana, and other drugs are common in some teenage circles, but you can stay strong and stay away from them. In addition to messing with your physical and emotional health, they can destroy your teeth and gums.
– When you are in your teens, you’ll get your back molars, or your wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are infamous for growing in incorrectly and becoming impacted. Ask our pediatric dentists if your wisdom teeth might need to be removed to protect your oral health.
