Teens’ Top Teeth Troubles

dca-blog_teen-dental-girl-toothbrush-pink

The teen years are a time of development and discovery. Sadly, this includes the development of dental problems and discovery of dangerous oral health behaviors. Discover the most common causes and remedies recommended by pediatric dentists.

Orthodontic Braces

Braces are no longer reserved just for adolescents, and are now worn by adults and kids of all ages.  These dental appliances work wonders to straighten crooked teeth, re-align a bad bite, improve a smile’s appearance and enhance overall dental health. Braces are available in many different styles and colors, so talk to an expert in affordable family dentistry to discover which braces are best for you.

Wisdom Teeth

The third molars are known as wisdom teeth because they are the final teeth to emerge during adolescence, which is when teens are gaining wisdom. Although they usually come in between the ages of 17 and 21, pediatric dentists often see them emerge sooner. Occasionally, they emerge in a poor position and need to be removed before they affect nearby teeth. An affordable family dentistry expert or kids dentist can usually extract these teeth with little pain or cost. These are the signs that often suggest that wisdom teeth are wreaking havoc on health and need to be removed:

  • Tumors and cysts
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Infection
  • Pain around wisdom teeth
  • Damage to adjacent teeth

Eating Disorders

There are many emotional, psychological, physical, and social problems caused by eating disorders. They also have a dental component, which can cause disastrous damage to oral health. Poor nutrition can cause the gums to bleed easily, while other risky behaviors can cause stomach acid to damage tooth enamel and harm the appearance of teeth. Kids dentists often detect the problem and urge teens to seek counseling and care from a healthcare provider who specializes in this struggle.

Smoking

Smoking is always bad, but is even worse during adolescence because it can lead to a lifetime of dental and medical consequences. According to pediatric dentists, the common dental effects include:

  • Oral cancer
  • Gum disease
  • Stained teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Reduced sense of smell and taste
  • Poor healing after dental work
