The first step to traversing the teenage years successfully begins with making the right oral health care decisions, which includes wading your way through these tricky oral health hazards:

– The last of your wisdom teeth grow in during your teenage years and can easily grow in incorrectly and cause many oral health disorders, so be prepared to put extra focus on the last of your permanent set.
– Oral accidents typically occur in contact sports, so always wear the appropriate safety equipment.
– A growing trend in teens is the use of mouth jewelry, including lip and tongue rings, all of which can increase your risk for infection and disease, and they can chip and crack teeth and become choking hazards.
– Bad habits, such as smoking and chewing tobacco and using recreational drugs, begin to spring up during the teenage years, which can have distressing consequences on your oral health.
