Do you wish you had a perfect teen smile? If so, Dr. Laura Rothe and our Skyline Orthodontics team is happy to give you the tips and advice you need! There are three specific things we would like you to consider if you’re interested in perfecting your smile, and those three things are:

Align your teeth with orthodontics
Orthodontic treatment not only gives you an attractive smile, but it also improves your oral health. If you have crooked teeth, there are little nooks in your smile that harbor plaque and bacteria. This is extremely dangerous because these areas are difficult to clean. If the plaque and bacteria are not removed on a regular basis, they could easily create tooth decay and gum disease.

Avoid using tobacco products
Smoking or using any type of tobacco product is extremely harmful and dangerous for your smile and your overall health. It can cause stained teeth, a dulled sense of smell and taste, and gum disease as well as oral cancer. If you’re not careful, tobacco use can result in tooth loss and even death. So, please avoid using these products at all costs.
