Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you.
That is why it is so important that you take care of it. Cavities aren’t just for little kids – teens can get them too. Braces often come into play at this age, so your oral hygiene habits need to be in place. Brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. Flossing between your teeth daily. Try and avoid sugary drinks; soda, juice or energy drinks because you can put yourself at risk for tooth decay.
