Teenagers can be tough on their teeth. Their lives are busy with school, jobs, sports, clubs, social activities, and don’t always give the time or thought needed to properly maintain oral health. Not all teens have this problem, of course, but we’ve seen enough come through that it’s becoming a concerning trend.
The fast-paced teen lifestyle that has been adopted into modern culture may be contributing to a lower overall oral hygiene than we have ever seen before. From to-go bars, soft drinks, and the fast food revolution, teens are at higher risk than ever of needing massive amounts of oral care, and in some cases oral surgery.
