From an early age, we learn about the importance of oral health. As children, many of us have our parents or loved ones to teach us how to brush our teeth, the importance of eating healthy foods, and how to properly care for our bodies. As children become teenagers, many kids begin to test the boundaries as they crave the independence of adulthood. Because we were all teenagers at one point, we can certainly relate to all the trials and tribulations of growing up. At Aesthetic Smile Design, our goal is to help avoid the decline in oral health that can occur once teenagers start being responsible for their own hygiene. We want to help our patients understand the link between oral health and overall health.
