Let’s Talk About Teen Teeth

Teens have so much on their minds that they often forget to mind their teeth. But adolescents need to pay proper attention to their dental care because according to pediatric dentists, their oral health and habits today can impact their teeth tomorrow.

Wearing Braces

Braces are practically a teenaged rite of passage since so many adolescents wear them. But today, numerous adults and younger kids are also wearing braces because they work wonders to straighten crooked teeth, re-align a bad bite, improve a smile’s appearance, and enhance overall dental health. Braces are available in many different styles and colors, so talk to an expert in affordable family dentistry or kids dentist to find out which braces are best for you.

Emergence of Wisdom Teeth

The third molars are known as wisdom teeth because they are the final teeth to emerge during adolescence, which is when teens are gaining wisdom. Although they usually come in between the ages of 17 and 21, pediatric dentists often see them emerge sooner. Occasionally, they emerge in a poor position and need to be removed before they affect nearby teeth. An affordable family dentistry expert or kids dentist can usually extract these teeth with little pain or cost. These are the signs that often suggest that wisdom teeth are wreaking havoc on health and need to be removed:

  • Tumors and cysts
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Infection
  • Pain around wisdom teeth
  • Damage to adjacent teeth

Dental Effects of Eating Disorders

There are many emotional, psychological, physical, and social problems caused by eating disorders. They also have a dental component, which can cause disastrous damage to oral health. Poor nutrition can cause the gums to bleed easily, while other risky behaviors can cause stomach acid to damage tooth enamel and harm the appearance of teeth. Kids dentists often discover the problem and urge teens to seek counseling and care from a healthcare provider who specializes in this struggle.

6 Hazards of Smoking

The hazardous habit of smoking habit often begins in the teen years. While smoking is never good, it is especially bad during adolescence because it can lead to a lifetime of dental and medical consequences. According to pediatric dentists, six common dental effects include:

  1. Periodontal disease
  2. Discolored teeth
  3. Bad breath
  4. Very slow healing after dental work
  5. Diminished sense of taste and smell
  6. Oral cancer
