Having an attractive smile is important to your teen’s self-esteem. It’s important that kids learn early that good oral hygiene and smart dietary choices will keep their smile beautiful. Always encourage teens to:
- limit sugary treats
- enjoy plenty of foods that contain calcium to build strong teeth
- get lots of vitamin C for healthy gums
- never use teeth as bottle openers, ice crushers, or cellphone case removers!
Teeth whitening can also spark-up their smile!
And if you need an effective way to reinforce the message, toss in the social angle – top-notch dental care ensures fresh breath!
