Each stage of parenthood seems to come with not only exciting milestones, but with challenges as well. In terms of your young loved ones’ dental health, each age comes with some challenges. Young children are learning how to properly care for their teeth and often need parental reinforcement to ensure they are removing all lingering bacteria. Teenagers come with a different set of dilemmas. Many teenagers are testing the boundaries of adulthood and have a tendency to push back on certain areas they feel are not important. Being that we were all teenagers at one point, we are sure you can remember doing the same. No matter what is going on in a teenager’s life, it is important for them to be mindful of their oral health. Decisions they make in their youth can have a big impact on the state of their oral health in the future.
