In some cases, the time the parents take to teach their children on how to prevent tooth decay goes on even after the adolescent years. A teenager with very minimal dental problems can be an indication that you have done a very good job as a parent in taking care of his teeth. Yay!
Though this may be good news, it is still worth noting that the cavity-prone years are not yet behind your teen. As teens may be as susceptible to cavities as children, there’s a lot that we can do to prevent tooth decay and develop good dental health practice during this stage (adolescence).
