Does Your Teen Have Unique Dental Challenges?

adolescent dental health

When it comes to dental health, adolescence is a pivotal time for young adults. It’s essential they keep up with their dental care with daily brushing and regular checkups at Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte.

The early teens are when the last of the permanent teeth come in. Good habits can be forged and reinforced. Teeth can be straightened with orthodontics, providing increased confidence when it is often sorely needed.

On the downside, some young people take up habits that are dangerous to their teeth. Many begin to take a relaxed attitude toward dental hygiene. Some may develop tooth decay that can cause recurring dental issues in later years.

Teens who are undergoing orthodontic treatment often have a difficult time properly cleaning their teeth. It is a challenge to fit toothbrush bristles and floss under dental hardware. Toothbrushes and water flossing devices can help youths with braces adequately clean their teeth and gums.

At Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte, we urge everyone to take good care of their teeth at every stage of life. It pays off! Patients from Cotswold, South Park, Myers Park, 28270, 28210, and 28262 come to us for general and family dentistry, as well as complete cosmetic dentistry. Contact us today!
