Gingivitis is hardly an adult disease. It’s so prevalent, in fact, that even children and teens cannot escape its reach. When bad bacteria decide to set up camp in our mouths, and we don’t do enough to sweep them away via proper brushing, flossing and rinsing, “camp” starts to morph into a giant bacteria playground.

Help them stay ahead of the problem with these easy-to-implement ideas.
Pretty easy, right? There’s nothing in here that’s too overbearing, and nothing too dramatic. Just 7 simple tips that will help you protect your teenagers (and you for that matter), from the severe inconvenience of gingivitis. Start today!
