Oral Care During Adolescence

Oral Care During AdolescenceThe body goes through both physical and hormonal changes during adolescence. At this stage, maintaining insufficient oral hygiene and hormonal imbalances which may both cause damage to the teeth and gums have greater effect on the teeth and gums than they would have under normal conditions.

Another issue to pay attention to during adolescence is being sure that the habit of brushing teeth is fully established. During this stage, a lot of adolescents neglect brushing their teeth due to various reasons and pave the way for the development of cavities and gum diseases.

The appropriate course of action for parents to take is to begin oral care during infancy and engrave the habit of maintaining oral hygiene in the subconscious of their children at an early age. Ideally, teeth should be brushed at least 2 times a day for a duration of 2-3 minutes.
